Karin K.

Granada, Spain

My name is Karin. I am German and I came to Granada as a language student in 1994.

I wanted to improve my Spanish at the University of Granada after a first professional education in Germany.
I fell in love with this country and especially with the South of Spain, Andalusia. It is such rich in history and culture. I decided to stay and to study Tourism in Granada and Seville. At the same time, I began to work as a tour guide for cultural groups throughout Spain. I started guiding in Andalusia but soon I worked in other areas in Spain.
I am a very curious person, I love to read and I was always interested in the history of persons, places and the way of life of the people.

I have a guiding experience of more than 20 years. Up to the present moment I have done a lot of different tours, like tours with the historic Al-Andalus train throughout Spain, religious groups, pilgrimage tours to the tomb of Saint Jacob in Santiago de Compostela, incentive tours, gastronomic tours, botanical tours, etc. That's still part of my professional life. And as I love to do different tours and themes, I can look over a rich variety of knowledge and experience. This country offers an amazing variety of activities, culture and nature.

Since 2015 I got the license as a local guide for Andalusia. That's the reason why I work more and more in Granada and its province. This area is a place of great historical and cultural interest, a real melting point of different races and cultures.
I would like to share my fascination and impressions with you. I can offer different tours, stressing on different themes and visiting different places in Granada and its province. I can adapt it to your wishes. I combine my experience as a tour leader throughout Spain with my deep knowledge about local places and topics.
I am convinced that it is a great advantage for you. Let me surprise you. . . hope to see you soon.

A Recent Review of this guide

Karin was absolutely fantastic! She brought the Alhambra to life for me and for my children ages 9 and 11. She asked the children about their interests which is art and taylored the tour to them. The kids were spellbound learning about the history and for them especially importantly of the artistic techniques of the artisans that created the work. She gets two thumbs up!
