For me every day as a tour guide is a wonderful challenge. It is a great pleasure for me to work with people and to give them new experiences. At the same time I enjoy bringing history to life for my guests with stories. Every trip is always a wonderful experience, after which we all return home with new impressions and more knowledge.

I have been touring for many years and have made a career out of it. Travelling and  learning about the culture and history of different countries never gets boring. For me being able to share my knowledge and experiences and seeing my guests enjoy their holiday gives me great pleasure. We all love an adventure and travel is a big one !

The great thing about the job as a tour guide is that it is so varied. You are responsible for the organisation and moderation of the tours and of course the first contact person for the guests. One travels to wonderful destinations and always learns something new. I have learned an incredible amount through the job over the last few years, about places I didn’t know before, about history, culture, but also about challenges and how to be more confident in myself.
