Escorting tours for more than 15 years

" To travel and see the real world was one of my main goals while growing up, so when I got the chance to become a Tour Director, I felt the luckiest person in the world. It is the most rewarding experience ever. Every single day is a chance to go somewhere new and learn about it. Every time a guest is amazed by the beauty of a monument, landscape or venue, it's like I'm seeing it again for the first time. Can't get any better! I especially enjoy touring Spain, Portugal and Morocco... the breath-taking landscapes and monuments, the history, the contrasts in traditions and gastronomy, the amazing weather throughout the year and the people... simply fascinates me."
