Jorge was knowledgeable about the geography and history of Valencia and Sagunto. He avoided congested areas and took us to a fabulous restaurant for fresh paella. He was excellent.

Our group of six were delighted to have another tour with Jorge after a great experience in 2018. Jorge adapts the tour to his clients interest and related well to all in the group. Historically knowledgeable and passionate in his pride for the Cartagena region, Jorge made the connections of the past to the city today, and does so with a personal touch of humor and interest. What a great day, with beautiful views of the countryside, historical connections to the ever changing archeological finds.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola!! Thanks for your great thoughts!!! It was a pleasure to meet you back in Spain!! Hope to see you again in Alicante or Valencia, why not?¿ Or for a paella lunc.... Have a wonderful time!! Muchas gracias!!

Excellent tour. Jorge was friendly, knowledgeable and flexible. Exactly why you select a private tour. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Valencia.

Cartagena is a small area to visit with lots of history. Jorge was able to take us to many of the old ruins around the city, many within walking distance of the ship in port but without a guide I don't think you would find some of them. A trip to the museum gave a good overview of the history of the city. A stop at the end of the tour for tapas was just the right way to top off the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi!! Thanks for you nice words!! It was really nice to meet you all!!
Chris BlaserUnited States
Jorge was a wonderful tour guide, friendly, interesting and informative, with an obvious pride in his city and his of Catalonia. He gave us a comprehensive, but not overwhelming, overview of the area, including the countryside, the City of Arts and Sciences and the old town, where he introduced us to local artisans, afforded plenty to time to explore the beautiful market, and enjoyed a wonderful lunch at one of Jorege's favorite restaurants. We hope to visit again, and highly recommend Jorge as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola!! Thanks so much for taking your time to write something really special!! You know already you have a friend in Valencia!! I had also a very special time with you, it was so nice to meet your party!!! Hope to see you again in Valencia, or Alicante why no?¿ Saludos desde España!!
We were a problematic group, as my mother is in wheelchair, and we had a teenage girl but Jorge really prepared an itinerary that made everyone happy. He was funny, charming, knowledgeable. I would say it was our best tour of our cruise week.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola!! That´s so nice you took your time to write such a wnderful review!! Thanks so much for your time and attention!! It was my pleasure to share Valencia with your party!!

This was one of the best tours guides TBL has provided to us. Jorge is incredibly knowledgeable, gracious, charming, and articulate. Cartagena will always be a special place to us because of the time we spent there with Jorge.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kraushaar family, Was a pleasure to guide a so polite and kind family in Cartagena. You helped me a lot!. Guiding it's my passion and I alway try to offer the best local experiences: arqueology, history, gastronomy and... why not... my sense of humor!.

Carole M.United States
My granddaughter and I were fascinated with the sites we visited on our tour of Alicante with Jorge. We did a lot of walking and learned many new and interesting things about this city. Jorge even took us to a small local resturant where we had a drink and some tapas and visited with some local residents. We ended up with a stroll in the city center and found our day enhanced by this experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola!! Thanks so much for your nice opinion!! It was great to show you the best of my lands!!
Jorge gave us an excellent tour of Murcia and Cartagena. He was informative, well-organized, and congenial. We saw and learned a lot and very much enjoyed our six hours-plus in his company.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, Was a pleasure to guide you, you are very very very polite and helpful. We went to Murcia, explore Cartagena and taste tapas in my family favorite restaurant ;-) that's a perfect spanish day (plus "siesta"). Looking forward hearing from you you! Best regards from Cartagena (Spain)

Terry MilneUnited States
Excellent guide who enjoys what he is doing. We stopped at the very modern City of Arts and Science complex for a much too brief visit (as per our arrangement). This area deserves a whole day visit. We had a panoramic drive of the City Center and a walk through a part of the area. We then had a tour of the Lladro factory which was much more interesting than I thought it would be. He dropped us off in the center of town and recommended several places for lunch. Overall, a very good tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your feedback, we enjoyed a nice morning ;-) Best regards from Valencia!
Susan Blau Ben Di BenedettoUnited States
Our tour with Jorge was great. He was very informative and very personable. We felt that we were traveling with a pro and seeing Cartegena as one should, through his eyes. We experienced the people, the environs and the culture and food in so many special ways and will always remember him and our experience. We highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola!! Thanks for taking your time to review your experience in Cartagena. It´s nice to hear that you still remember our tour!! I really aprecciate your nice words!! Muchas gracias!!
Marjorie RobertsUnited States
Jorge is a fantastic guide. He's smart, funny, and extremely knowledgeable about Cartegena and Murcia from the best "local" restaurant to the history of every building we passed. I would recommend him to anyone who comes to this area or to any other area where he provides guide services.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi!! Thanks so much for your review!! As you kknow this helps us a lot to keep improving our tours and experiences!!! We really hope you enjoyed the time and hope to see you again, why not in Spain!! Best regards from Spain!!

Our tour of Valencia started in light drizzle and continued on through the worst thunderstorm so far this year in Valencia. According to locals it only rains on 15-30 days a year. Despite the problem of trying to keep three soaked tourists engaged Jorge really was excellent and gave us a great insight into the marvels of Valencia. He was charming,witty and in no time at all the tour was over. We left feeling that we had been with a good friend rather than someone we had hired for the day. excellent guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola!!! I hope you really enjoyed the tour!! For me it was also special because as you know it never rains in Valencia so it was a very very special day!! Thanks so much for all your nice words and review!! Hope to see you again (why not) in this Mediterranean lands!!
Louis FreundSUNNYVALE, CA, United States
Jorge provided our private group of 9 people with excellent commentary, regional background and interesting sights. He answered questions knowledgeably and was especially attentive to our time line and food preferences. His background in art history and as an area native, as well as his life experiences in various parts of the world contributed to the depth and cultural perspectives he provided, often with a dash of humor.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola!! Thanks so much for your nice words they really help me to grow as a tour guide and also as a better person!! It was my pleasure!! Say thank you for all members in the group!! Best regards from Spain!!
Todd HeeUnited States
Jorge was one of the best guides ever. Took us to some incredible sites in Valencia, before visiting the Lladro factory. This was a private tour, which was so much better than the larger group tours, as we could stop and enjoy the areas we wanted to. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola!! Thanks so much for your review!! Valencia is a wonderful city and I hope you enjoyed the same as I always do showing the best of it!! It was my pleasure!! Muchas gracias!!
Anton WaserUnited States
As a group, we would rate Jorge L among the very best guides that we have experienced over our numerous Tours by Local journeys. Passionate and historically knowledgeable about this wonderfully under appreciated city, Jorge brought the twenty-three centuries to life. He was a joy to be with for the four hours, far too short a time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola!! I really appreciate your review and comments!! As you know I like a lot the history and I try my best to make it nice for everybody!! Thanks once again for your tie and attention!! Muchas gracias!!
