Born in Toledo in 1971, he knew that he wanted to be his own boss from a very young age. Encouraged by his uncle Fredeswindo, a “lifelong” guide, he graduated as an Expert in Tourist Business and Activities in 1994 and was certified as an Official Tourist Guide in 1995. He has worked in tourism and team coordination for more than half his life, founding the event and conference organisation company A.C.T Global Services S.L. in 1999. He was also co-founder of the audio-visual production company Hopal Producciones S.L. (“Toledo en la Historia (Toledo in History) DVD), and co-founder of the computer applications company Nexora & Global S.L. (Be Your Guide, winner of “Best Cultural App in Spain, Segittur 2014”). A tireless traveller, lover of culture, food and the quiet life, he currently runs, together with his nephew Javier Rodríguez, “Destino Toledo”, an agency that specialises in private à la carte tours and designing exclusive experiences.
He was born in Toledo in 1984, growing up in a family that worked in tourism, where he discovered the beauty of the history, monuments and traditions of his hometown, leading him to become the third generation of guides in the family. Passionate about travel and discovering new cultures, he earned a degree in Tourism at the Autonomous University of Madrid, completing his training by studying abroad in destinations worldwide. He’s lived in Japan, Australia, Ireland, Italy, and France in recent years, although he always intended to return to his hometown of Toledo to serve as a bridge between his city and the many visitors it receives. He launched his professional career as a Tourist Guide in the Regional Association of Guides of Castilla La Mancha in 2008 and was elected its youngest president in 2013. When he is not showing the charms of the city to travellers, Javier loves to travel and create unique memories with his family.

Easy-going and with a constant smile on her face, she will show you Toledo’s blend of cultures and architectural styles while making you feel right at home.
He was born in La Nava (Asturias) and grew up surrounded by nature. He went to a Dominican Friar school and his family life made it easy for him to play sports and travel extensively around Spain, creating a deep love for reading and history from an early age.
