Meet Jorge


I found my passion when I got in the tourism industry in 2010 and became a certified tour guide in 2014. I like to say that I'm retired because I love what I do and it doesn't feel like work. I love comedy and believe in the power of laughter, so I try to give all of my tours in the most fun way possible.

What to expect

Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to San Juan with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.

The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from San Juan. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.

The majority of your tip goes directly to support the channel, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.

Jorge is the best! He's very knowledgeable about his town and his pride in it shows. His style is engaging and viewers feel connected. I learned so much about San Juan.

It's hard to believe Jorge is so new to VT tours, as he is so relaxed and calm. A beautiful tour. Thank you.
