I am an online English tutor fascinated by informal learning, anthropology, culture, heritage, and nature, Being a private guide is for me a way to share my passion in these areas with others too. I will assist you in your memorable travel exploitations and experiences.

My relevant qualifications

Some experience in career guidance obtained during my work in a relevant institution for seven years helps me in any infraction with people. More recently, I have obtain a certificate in Inquiry Approach through an online course by MoMA (Museum of Modern Art in New York), which I really appreciate

My approach

As a guide, I try to be a facilitator that follows client's' interests and assist them in exploring and discovering on their own, in addition to just getting them to the readily provided information. The more they can refer their travel experience to their life and background, the best. I often suggest that we focus on one or a few story lines they find most fascinating, and explore then in more depth. I will feel most satisfies, if they can get some sense for the spirit of the place.

My primary destinations

The region of Karlovo and the wider Rose Valley, Central Bulgaria is the area I know the best in terms of cultural tourism. The regional masquerade tradition (Kukers) was even theme of my Master’s thesis I also know Sofia, Burgas, Plovdiv, and Veliko Tarnovo to a high extent, because I have lived, worked, or studied there. I can likely be of help in these towns and their countrysides even if it is about something not included in my list of offered excursions.

My fee is 7 euro/hour, 30 euro a whole day excursion.
