Hi! Hello! G’day!
Whether you are from the UK, Australia or any other location around the globe, Welcome!
I’m Maureen, and I live in a small town called La Mata, near Torrevieja, in the Alicante province of Spain, and I LOVE to travel!
Let me share with you a bit about my background… By the way, there’s no ‘ideal’ background for the Tour Guide profession, but experience in dealing with the public is definitely a plus! .
Before becoming a tour leader, I was a personnel consultant, languages teacher, travel agent, communications trainer, travel writer, and book publisher, in roughly that order. And, throughout my early career, I frequently organized and led group and family tours in Europe.
When I first heard about the tour guide job, it felt like it was made for me! I love languages, I like socializing and working with people, and I love showing off. I got a degree in French at age 22, and have a load of other communication based qualifications such as speaking six other foreign languages, to varying levels – so, being a tour guide couldn’t have been more perfect!
I’m divorced, and have three gorgeous children. I can’t stand tomato pips, tripe or sauerkraut; otherwise I can eat pretty much anything, which is definitely a great help when working in far-flung places.
Although I’ve travelled extensively – to around 70 countries – I haven’t actually worked in most of them. I have led tours in the following places:
France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany
Hong Kong, India, China, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand
USA (California, Miami, New York, Pennsylvania, New Orleans)
Morocco, Gambia, Libya
Australia, New Zealand
I would love to hear from you and will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the Tour Guide Course.
