After living in La Rochelle for six years, my family and I decided to move to the Isle of Ré in 1992, where we still live. During this period I worked as a trilingual tourist guide (French, English and German) for the tourist offices of La Rochelle and Ré. In 2015 I chose to go free-lance, giving guided tours in Charente Maritime, but especially La Rochelle and the Isle of Ré.
Obviously, I love doing guided tours!
I like the range I can offer and the possibility of organizing new visits on different themes and in different places.
I like the diversity of the public I meet, different age groups, small private groups of friends and families…
I like creating tailor-made tours and building mutual trust. With small and middle-sized groups it is easier to call on locals to contribute (craftpersons, saltmakers, artists, mansion owners…).
Being a certified guide allows me to take you to museums as well as national monuments (e.g., the towers of La Rochelle).
They have good memories of their visit
