Juan Manuel S.

Cartagena, Murcia, Spain

Hi, I am Juanma. I was born in Cartagena (Murcia) and I have spent most of my life in this city, even if I have travelled a lot because I love travelling!

My passion for discovering new lands led me to study and obtain my Bachelor's degree in Tourism. I fulfilled my degree final project in Germany, where I lived with an Erasmus scholarship, and it consisted of a complete tourist guide-book about the city I stayed in.

Right after finishing the University, I started working in the Tourism industry as a Museum guide for Cartagena Town Council, where I showed its archaeological, cultural and natural resources to those interested in delving into the wonders of this millennial Mediterranean city.
Since then, I have remained bound to this exciting job, always working in contact with the public.

I think that continuous academic training is quite important in the tourism industry. Actually, any field of knowledge can be applied to the guiding activity. That's why nowadays I'm also attaining another Bachelor in philology, so as to expand my background in Arts and Letters and apply it to my job and personal life.

For me, the Tour guide is a nice and free professional job that offers the opportunity to meet foreign and interesting people to share the magnificent experience of my town with! Also, they can let me know about their own experiences so we may enrich each other.
In a nutshell, I like being a Tour guide and I will be pleased to be yours! Thus, you are very welcome to contact me.

A Recent Review of this guide

Juan made our stay in Cartagena, Spain--fun, interesting and very enjoyable. He is an excellent guide, very knowledgeable about his city. He is very proud of his city and his country. He was able to adapt to our needs, time frame and make it truly a wonderful, special day. I would recommend Juan without hesitation and would definitely use him again if ever in Cartagena. Thank you Juan.
