Carolina O.

alicante, Spain

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

One of the 1st TBL 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.

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.

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
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.
