I studied Marketing, but I soon realised that tourism was closer to my heart, so that is why since 2013 I decided to become a full time tour guide.
In this way, I managed to combine two of my biggest passions: travelling and foreign languages.
To me, being a guide means getting the chance to be an ambassador for my city -Bucharest- and my home country, Romania, while also meeting new people and sharing experiences and ideas from different cultures.
If you are visiting Bucharest, I’d love to meet you and share the many fascinating stories about my city with you!
