Guillermo B.

Telde, Las Palmas, Spain

Hi! My name is Guillermo and I am truly passionate about showing and sharing the beautiful things that Gran Canaria has to offer to curious travellers!

I really love spending time in the outdoors of this magnificent "Miniature Continent".
I like diving and snorkeling in the ocean, riding a motorbike slowly on this astonishing roads, walking through the volcanic landscapes, hiking, visiting ancient archaeological sites, travelling back in time with the mysterious history of the first civilization that settled in this land, observing the smallest details and the biggest treasures that Nature offers us.
Being a tour guide is my life. I really enjoy my work!

I have been working as a tour guide since 2004.
In my first part-time job I was wilderness tour leader in the surroundings of Doñana National Park, in Huelva and Sevilla, where I was finishing my degree in environmental sciences.
I arrived in Gran Canaria to work as a health and safety inspector, and I just fell in love with this land: nature, the landscapes, all that heritage including an absolutely remarkable archaeology.
The Island really got me, and I decided that I had to spend my time and energy doing what I do best: showing all this beauty, sharing all this natural and cultural heritage as a personal guide.

I began as a specialised birdwatching guide; but today I can tell that the experiences that I try to provide are the perfect mixture of nature, culture, landscapes, legends and gastronomy; delivering that in a professional way but also as if I were showing the island to my friends or relatives when they come to visit me.
The results are always the same: priceless faces and reactions; the feeling that you have really squeezed the best out of your time in Gran Canaria, and a sentence that is repeated again and again: "I didn't expect Gran Canaria to be like this!"

Do you want to join me? Do you want to feel the energy? This place is full of it!

The 2 best sides of Grancanaria are the historical side,rich in culture,cuisine,music,folklore,ancient customs,an amalgamation of architecture&tradition from around the globe,settled on this island oasis.Then,it's landscape:the startling contrast of dunes in the south,forest&mountain peaks in the north,& lush,tropical rainforest in between.Guillermo was so knowledgable in history,nature,&cuisine that we had an unforgettably authentic&enriched day,visiting places only well-researched locals know!
