I have lived in this little paradise with a charming local girl :-) since 2005 and have never regretted it! No stress, no traffic jams, little criminality, little pollution, nice landscape and nice weather. . . what else could I wish for? But then I discovered that the 'the white and blue island' has so much more to offer!
Picturesque little villages and towns with stately historic centers and scenic harbors, unique prehistoric settlements and monuments, impressive fortresses, amazing gorges and geological formations, beautiful hiking trails and stunning unspoiled beaches that will enthuse anyone interested in nature, culture, history or archeology. Menorca will surprise you with its turbulent history, varied photogenic landscape and architecture but also its surprising gastronomy.
After completing my bachelor's degree in marketing I started working for an international tour operator, working in various destinations (Ibiza, Tenerife, Costa Brava, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Austria, Sri Lanka and Sicily) until I got to know Menorca.
I like to travel, having visited many countries in different continents (USA, Mexico, South Africa, Egypt, Kenia, Mauritius, Spain, Italy, France, etc. ). I have been working as an official tourist guide since 2012 and enjoy to entertain my guests by revealing the island's most extraordinary and fascinating sites and stories.
I'm looking forward to welcoming you on Menorca as your personal tour guide!

Alvin was an enthusiastic guide who had a fantastic knowledge of the history of Mahon. He was very accommodating and helpful about the most important things to see. We learned so much about Mahon and we would never been able to do that without Alvin. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
