Darío L.

Los Realejos, Tenerife, Spain

Hi! First of all, I'll ask you to stop imaging the typical old and boring tourist guide.

I'm terribly young. So young that you may not believe me when I'll tell you.

My name is Dario. Even if I can speak fluently six languages, I have no foreign relatives. I was born here, in Tenerife, and I've studied and lived in Rome, Paris, Madrid, Lisbon and Fes, Morocco. Along my experience abroad, I learned to love keeping in touch with other cultures, but also unveiling my culture's secrets to our visitors.

This is why I became an official Canary Islands' tourist guide when I returned to my homeland to settle down here definitely. I have a deep knowledge of my island's natural and historical values. This is what sets our identity apart from others and, paradoxically, it still remains an unknown domain.

I love letting my guests know the most characteristic aspects of our culture. Our gastronomy, our agriculture, our popular celebrations, our religious events, our natural and historical heritage. I have so much to share with you!

Above all, I love showing it in a funny, different and fresh way. Having local people participate in our tours so as they can share with us their wisdom and expertise as well as using audiovisual materials that deepen the tour's topic are among the initiatives that my guests value the best.

All my tours are multidisciplinary. I aim at having sustainability and respect for the environment as distinctive quality signs. In fact, I belong to a governmental initiative to promote sustainability among new entrepreneurs.

And, please, call me by my name. The closer is our relation, the more satisfying our experience will be. Let me be your friend, not just your tourist guide. I want you to forget that I'm working for you. Just relax, enjoy, and let me show you a totally different Tenerife from the one you've imagined.

A Recent Review of this guide

Dario was our guide on Tenerife 5th April. He was excellent with enthusiasm, intellect, capacious knowledge and all swamped by care and concern for our safety and enjoyment. So much was packed into the day and yet we never felt rushed. Dario adjusted to our interests and requests. Anyone who is guided by Dario is very lucky.
