Ignacio Benedicto Albaladejo Private tour guide in Cartagena, Murcia - Spain

Ignacio Benedicto Albaladejo

Guide profile:

I was born in Cartagena in the early sixties, and have now accumulated a wide range of experience over 12 years as an official tour guide. For the last five years I have held the "Compromiso de Calidad Turística" certificate, a status awarded by the Ministry of Tourism as part of a program which aims to improve the quality of of tourist destinations in Spain by giving official recognition to those who continually upgrade the services they offer.

Although i studied journalism, working as a guide allows me to continue doing what I do best: unearthing stories based on facts, weaving together the threads in enjoyable visits which help my customers to form their own mental images of Cartagena's fascinatingly rich past. In my experience this is the best way, rather than providing an overwhelming array of names and numbers...

Tour guide services/sample itinerary:

There's plenty to do in the area, from learning Cartagena City's rich ancient heritage and its stunning surrounding scenery, to drive a little deeper inland to get to know such interesting spots founded by the Muslims as Murcia City or the secret valleys where these people hid from the Christians during the war the fought against them in medieval times, without forgetting the gorgeous looking mansions built in both cities by the mining tycoons during the "boom" era of the late 19th century. You can see here some example but we also design custom tours.

Ignacio had told us that he was not available on the day wanted but he arranged the tour for us with Jay as the guide.

She was very good and the tour completely met our expectations.
