Juan Carlos d.

Bayonne, Pyrenées Atlantiques (Nouvelle Aquitaine), France

Hello! My name is Juan-Carlos, and I am a passionate cultural and gastronomical French licensed tour guide based in Bayonne (French Basque Country), although I am original from Madrid (Spain).

I have university Degrees in Tourism Administration, Social Sciences, History Research and Management of Cultural Itineraries, and I have been working in the tourism industry for more than 15 years (8 years as a Tour Guide).

I have always loved traveling, and meeting people of different cultures, and I had the great change of leaving and working in countries like Greece, Guatemala, Iceland and Mexico. It was in Mexico where I ended meeting my current French wife and decided to move to France together, already 8 years ago. Here we had our amazing daughter, and here I discovered that sharing with others my passion for history, culture and gastronomy, in a funny and educational way, was my thing!

The French Basque Country amazed me since the beginning and keep on surprising me every day. A millenary culture still alive and ready to be discovered. A non-Indoeuropean language still spoken on site. A delightful gastronomy with plenty of tasty products made and grown locally. Remarkable Historical monuments and sites. Stunning nature and human landscapes that resisted the passage of time. Authentic and charming rural towns like Espelette, Ainhoa, or Saint Jean Pied de Port, combined with legendary coastal resorts like Biarritz and Saint Jean de Luz, and a thrilling city full of history and heritage, Bayonne. Ocean, mountains, cultural heritage, and great gastronomy in the same destination. And moreover, the uniqueness of the Basque Culture, shaped both by France and Spain, that makes this destination the one of a kind.

Since the very first day of my career as a Tour Guide I have made my best to offer what I always like to find myself while on a trip: a personalized and human service, an honest and genuine interest for the satisfaction of my customers, a great respect for local history and culture, and a lot of will and passion for creating authentic and high quality tour experiences.

I am looking forward to having you in one of my tours soon! Do not hesitate to ask me if you would a customise tour according to your travelling preferences.
