Here is my biography in a few words. I was born and spent my childhood and youth in a country which does not exist anymore - USSR :-) from the age of 10, I was doing rock-climbing and mountain tourism. Then started travelling outside our closed country. After the University I combined my love for foreign languages and for travelling and worked as a tourist guide, as well as an interpreter, translator and language teacher (French, English, Turkish and Russian).
Since 2002 my family lives in one the most interesting, beautiful, very well preserved and safe cities of the World. I LOVE QUÉBEC and hope to be able to transfer this love and knowledge to my clients. . .
A Recent Review of this guide
Elena was a fun and knowledgeable guide and very well prepared. Her emphasis on history might be overwhelming for some. She adjusted our plan very well when our ship docked at a different pier and the weather was not conducive to a mostly walking tour.
