Carolina O.

Alicante, alicante, Spain

Born in the city and lover of food and good places to enjoy.

One of the 1st TBL local guides in Spain , and 1 st in Alicante due to my profesional amd personal connecction with the American and Canadian traveler from many years. I have also lived in the United States and really know the American standards way of travelling, a bit different of Spanish.

I work as a local guide in Alicante, Valencia, Murcia and Cartagena. Also I could take you to different many cities in a tour as you please. My speciality is give you th elocal experience. I am not an oficial guide due to dates for the exam. I will not explain oficial heritage inside.

Aiming the "professional tasting";) of gourmet cuisine and good knowledge of organic products also.

I understand my city and its movements, what is actually going on according to what you need to see at this peculiar moment. I think there are many places to discover for the visitants and they will be able to have a deep experience even in a few hours period. I am very curious and like to be ahead of the circumstances so I like to be in the vanguard of the actuality.
Cartagen and Valencia are great places to walk around and discover the city secrets.

I love treating with groups with interest in my city; and I have 8 y. old son so I understand children and their necessities.

As I mentioned I have lived in USA and other places and enjoy to show my city so you understand it through your eyes. My proposition is to focus on what a visitant would like to experience because I have worked with foreign people and travelers in Spain and abroad since 1994 when I graduated from Saint Louis University, MO, USA.
Besides my experience, I have double degree in Political Science & Economics.
Minor in Arts and Spanish History 1993
University Expert master in "Economics of Natural Resources and Enviroment".
Universitary Expert Degree in Protocole specialized in Events and Communication, University Miguel Hernandez of Elche. (1996)
Degrees (1994-2012) in Tour Guide, Wine tasting and Wine-pairing from CDT Generalitat Valenciana.
I have worked in the ice-cream and nougat (special local sweets internationally known) industry. Also in family business olive oil. My knowledge about our goods are deep for that experience.

I am very happy opening the city to guests so may enjoy their time here as they were living in the city for two weeks. . . Actually I love that way of traveling, finding friends that show me the place from the inside. This is what you will find in your time together with me. A local friend;).

Be sure you will have the time you need to enjoy every aspect that interests you. I am open and flexible to your time as well. I would love to attend your needs and we can even "re-design" together the tour if necessary.

Any proposition besides my basic tours would be very well accepted.

A Recent Review of this guide

Our walking tour of Alicante was excellent. We met Carolina mid morning and had a glorious walk up to Santa Barbara Castle. The walk up and down is very gradual. The castle is a must to see and Carolina's insight was very informative. The history is amazing. From there we walked down to the central market and stopped at a great restaurant for lunch. After lunch we continued to walk the central area... Carolina pointing out lots and lots of great restaurants and things to do. Great introduction to Alicante
