Coordinator & Guide

GOYO GARRIDO GARCÍA (Cantabria 1.976) Cantabrian by birth and from Granada by adoption. I grew up in Espinama, a Cantabrian town of about 100 inhabitants in the heart of the P.N. Picos de Europa, surrounded by mountains, mountains and adventures. I was fortunate to have a local mountain club where I started enjoying the mountains, trails, pens, pastures, and mountain routes and the parents who taught me how to move like a fish in the water. When I was only 5 years old I did the Ruta del Cares and when I was 8 years old I started skiing, it seemed that the mountain would always be close to me. Throughout my childhood and adolescence I have dedicated a lot of time to mountain sports, many routes through the mountains, weekends on it. I became a member of the Valdecoro Mountain Club and the Torrelavega Sports Society, both allowed me to get to know and enjoy the Cantabrian Mountains. Once I finished the secondary school studies I started working, but I always work related to the fields, the mountains and animals:

Coordinator & Guide

Hello! I am Esmeralda, Oficial Local Guide of Granada specialising in private tours. I am a italian antropologist who move to Granada 17 years ago. Once here I took a Master in Intercultural Education and study to become an offial local guide of Granada and Guadix. I am particularly interested in history and art, but my training has led me to intermingle this knowledge with what truly enriches a culture: its local traditions: ways of living, music, art, religion and philosophy, which are transmitted narratively and humorously. Thanks to my passion for travel (I have traveled in several continents and countries: almost all over Europe, Turkey, Persia, Asia, South America and North Africa) I am able to contextualize events on a large scale and approach history from different points of views. I will take you beyond the beauty of historic sites and give you a tour that explores all the complexities of this land full of history, literatura,philosophy and cultures (Christian, Muslim and Jewish) who shared the same space for centuries in medieval times.

It will be my pleasure to show you the beauty of this city and to transport you to the magical time of the medieval Alhambra. I can offer you dynamic tours narrated in a lively way that will transport you into the atmosphere of the time and I can tailor them to your own requests and interests. Just let me know!​
