Hey there,

you can find BSP converter here:
However, you should know that it doesnt work 100% correctly. For example, texture alignments are not converted good.
Instructions are included in the download, It’s quite easy:

 * Usage Information * 
- Run DeBSP.EXE and [Browse] for the BSP file you wish to decompile
  (It can decompile any quake engine map except SOF maps). Once you
  have picked the file you wish to decompile press the [Decompile]
  button and a MAP file will be created in the same folder as the 
  BSP and with the same name. 
- Please do not use this tool to rip other people's maps off. Just
  use it to gain more knowledge about map making. 

But, if you would like to see how other maps were made, there are many map sources available. You can, for example, download:

The download links were posted above by @WuTangH.

Also, it’s true that decompling a map will disfigure texture’s settings, brushwork, and sometimes entity settings. :expressionless:
