Half chilean, half french, fond of travelling and history, I worked ten years as a spanish high school teacher. My students used to praise my storytelling abilities pushing me to become a passionate and fully licensed tour guide graduated in 2014. I offer tailor made visits to all ages. Historical facts, anecdotes and french idiosyncrasy are some of the ingredients I use to bring the city back to life as well as images. To make it memorable, I can take pictures along the visit and then I send them to you. I am a photograph lover. For families with children, I bring activities. So let's have then an enjoyable and worthwhile learning experience. Tripadvisor awarded me Certificate of excellence 2017-18
