I love combining my passion for languages with history.
I can make a bespoke tour, tailor-made to your personal interest and time and feel confident that I can help you create unforgettable memories on your trip.
Just drop me a line and we can work together to create your perfect trip!
I am fluent in English, Spanish, French, Dutch and Japanese, all languages I use regularly as guide and interpreter.
My interests are broad and range from royal history to architecture, art history, theatre to film locations. . . .
In the past I have lived in Belgium, Spain and Japan (Tokyo) before settling in England.
I also have previous experience working as a Japanese speaking tour guide in the upmarket tourist industry in Belgium, Luxembourg and Holland.
Travelling as a family with kids? Very welcome as I also have extensive experience in working with educational tours for children; I can adapt my tours especially for families with young children or teenagers with something of interest for both, adults and kids.
