I worked more than 20 years now as a licensed tour guide and as a lecturer guide for 14 years in the Dordogne valley, my birthplace.
I hold an MA in history of Art and Archeology. I've worked for over the last 11 years for the Centre des monuments nationaux (French center for national heritage monuments) as a lecturer guide and facilitator for schools workshops in the castles of Castelnau Bretenoux and Montal.
I created in 2002 "Rando & Patrimoine" my own business to combine my two passions : the cultural heritage and hikes. It is an absolute joy to arrive early in the morning on site thanks to a little path sprinkled with wild orchids and enclosed with traditional dry-stone walls.
In 2016, I obtained a transport licence to offer private guided tours with a driver guide. Here you'll find some examples but I can design your tour the way you want.
