Sonia B.

Torino, Italy

Hello, my name is Sonia, I live in Torino, where I grew up.

After obtaining my Degree in Science Education, I discovered my passion for languages (German, English, French) and for communication in general. That is why I have always chosen a profession where interpersonal skills are important.

Since 1996 I have been working as a Tourist Guide. The Fascination of this job lies in breathing life into things that would otherwise remain silent to the hurried glance. It's a job that requires constant researching and leads to "discoveries" which I then like to share with the travelers I take on tour.

In 20 years, I have provided a high-quality touring experience for some of the most discerning visitors to Turin.

What customers like about my talks is the vividness and the clarity. Many of them contact me again or recommend me to their friends, because they appreciate my empathetic approach, which transforms every visit into a friendly encounter.

Back in 1996, when I achieved my tour guide licence, I was convinced Turin would be a new tourist destination. Today, everybody (or almost!) knows that Turin is an impressive city of elegant charm and surprising treasures.

There is both beauty and history to be found in Torino, not to mention great food and wine.

Torino is a city that is full of squares, parks, palaces, arcades and cafés. A marvellous surprise, even for people who have travelled the world.

See you soon in Torino!

A Recent Review of this guide

Sonia took us on a fantastic tour around the city. We wanted to experience the history and culture of chocolate and pastry. She managed to keep eleven pastry graduates attention for three hours. We tasted some wonderful chocolates, pastries and more, met some fabulous artisans and even got behind the scenes in a wonderful bakery. We were on a three day educational trip and Sonia's friendly and engaging style had a lasting effect on as all and we will recall out tour over and over. Thankyou Sonia
