WHO ARE WE?

GABO

Since reading Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne at the age of six, Gabo has wanted to follow in his hero Phileas Fogg’s footsteps. His first taste of travel was at 17, when he hitchhiked to Patagonia and was overwhelmed by the nature and landscapes of his homeland of Argentina. His colourful career has included being a theatre actor, rock ’n’ roll band manager, master of reiki, and even a chartered public accountant. In 2011, he spent a year working in New Zealand before taking in 94 countries in a two-year epic adventure around the world.

He works as a tour guide since 2014 and hasn’t looked back. His infectious passion for travel with everyone who roams with him, granted the award of one of the top 10 tour leaders in the world in 2018.


FREDY

Originally from Valladolid, Spain. He studied tourism in Segovia and Jerez de la Frontera and right after finishing his degree, Fredy went to Thailand where he spent 5 months volunteering and traveling around the country. He fell in love with new cultures, new people and new places. After that, he lived in several different countries around the world: USA, South Africa, Sicily (Italy), China and he traveled as much as he could. He worked as a teacher in Chicago for 3 years where he taught children from 3 to 12 years. In 2014 he started his career as a tour guide. It is his passion to share his knowledge about the places and cities with travelers. From this point of view, he never stopped traveling.

Due to the Covid-19 situation and with his friends and co-workers, he decided to start this
new project with the main idea that everyone should see the world no matter the
circumstances.
