Our Official Tour Guide Jurgen: just some words to know a little bit more about him:

“My name is Jurgen Hans Loos and I was born in Bodegraven, a little town in the Netherlands. In a small country like Holland, you learn to travel even before taking your first steps. One of my first memories, although vague, is a trip to Austria that I made with my parents when I was only one and a half years old. Later on, my  father bought a caravan and we began to travel throughout Europe. This spirit of the tireless traveller I inherited from my parents and it made me see that we are all citizens of the world.

Life is full of twists and turns: at this moment I could have been a carpenter, because that was the profession I chose. However, due to an allergy to certain types of wood, I had to give up this job. It didn´t take me long to choose another career. Thanks to Interrail I had been in Spain several times. I loved that country,…. so I decided to learn Spanish. I studied that language at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands, a decision that would change my destiny. To finish my thesis I decided to go to Spain and I ended up falling in love with the City of Cuenca, where I have been living for more than 30 years.

I have extensive experience in tourism in Cuenca, where I have been working for many years in the Science Museum of Castilla-La Mancha and now as an Official Tour Guide of this beautiful city with its spectacular surroundings. In 2014 I founded Guided Cuenca, a Tourist Company located in Cuenca.

The Guided Tours that I offer in this amazing Medieval Town and the Province of Cuenca are unique and original. You can choose for a tour in Spanish, English, German or Dutch.


My hobbies:

One of my big passions is travelling, but I also love history, writing, painting and my motorbike. At this moment I’m finishing my trilogy about the conquest of South America and in 2007 I won a Spanish literary award for my short story El Mendigo (The Beggar).  As a painter I consider myself a self-taught artist. I love to do watercolor paintings and also pyrography”.
