The best way to travel is speaking the local language. I decided to study French and Spanish at Vienna's University. Later on, I spent one year in Mexico City studying Mexican literature and giving German lessons to Mexican children. During my studies in Vienna, I started to work as a tour leader in Austria and throughout Europe and America.
After majoring at Vienna's University, I taught for a year in an Austrian high school, studied art history and movie production at Vienna's Film Academy and worked on several movie and television projects.
I've been a professional, licensed tourist guide in Austria for several years. It's a job I truly love. Besides travel, my interests include art, culture, literature, theatre, movies, dance and music. My other passion is languages. Besides German, I speak English, Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese. My most recent language is Hebrew - my biggest challenge so far!
A Recent Review of this guide
Gabriela was extremely knowledgeable about Vienna and provided us with a memorable experience. Bill and Lucille Kenworthy
I majored at University in Spanish and French and I also studied Arts.
In Austria we must pass a STATE EXAM in order to become a licensed tourist guide after having made a 3 or 4 semester course studying Arts, History and special knowledge of tourist sights. I am a licensed guide since 2002 and I work in 7 languages. As a licensed guide I am allowed to guide in nearly all museums and we have in most tourist sights preferences buying tickets so clients don't have to queue up for entrance tickets.
