licensed guide in Catalonia
I was born in Moscow, the last 30 years I live in Spain. I studied tourism in Granada, Barcelona and Gerona. and work as a guide with tourists and businessmen from different countries.
I offer sightseeng tours and exclusive private trips throughout all Catalonia. I work with VIP tourists and groups.
Also I offer a consecutive translation: Russian-Spanish-English at fairs, professional visits, seminars, real estate, etc.
Besides the standard tours, I develop original routes in the most interesting and little-known corners of the northern Catalonia and southern France, where you can see the typical architecture, gastronomy, handicrafts and daily life of local residents. In addition, I propose excursions for those who like long walks in nature with a good physical preparation. In my free time I like to "get lost" among the stunning landscapes of Costa Brava, combining mountains and the coast, and find the forgotten foot-paths, known only by local shepherds. In our region there is no truly dangerous places, but I was trained in specialized courses of mountain guides, to be ready for any eventuality. I also graduated in navigation course, and can manage the sail boats up to 8 m. So I also suggest the private sea excursions.
I will be glad to provide the guide and interpreter services for you. A detailed description of my
services are in Russian, but if you need it I can send the information in English.
The routes are approximates, you can change them according to your pleasure and preferences.
