I love to travel, listen to people's stories, share experiences. . . I love being active, enjoy outdoor activities, want to learn about the world around me. I'm inspired by life and moved by the courage people have to truly live it.
I'm a professional in the Tourism Industry, I have worked for many different tour operators in Ecuador, Greece, Austria, Spain, and France for over 9 years performing duties as Operations, Customer Service, Sales Department, freelance Guide Tour Leader. During this time I have designed more than a hundred different itineraries and been in touch with thousands of travelers from all over the world, going across from the Andean mountains to the most prestigious vineyards in the world in Bordeaux.
I'm able to design & organize customized private tours for individuals or group travelers that fits any needs, preferences, and budgets many tours can be done.
I would like to introduce the areas of the tours I offer:
- Bordeaux ancient Roman site, nowadays modern but very elegant, charged with wonderful histories, which over the millenniums has always been a Mecca of French culture.
- Saint-Emilion is the first vineyard in the world to have been listed as a World Heritage Site in 1999 because of his "cultural landscape" by UNESCO. A treasure of French architecture and culture.
It will be a pleasure for me to meet and show you around this magnificent area. . .
A Recent Review of this guide
Michael is a passionate informative fun guide who couldn't do enough for us. We had a great time driving around in the beautiful 2CV with the roof rolled back. We covered so much of Bordeaux even some of the right bank. The lunch at he seafood market was wonderful and the wine tasting was great also. Highly recommended.
