About me

My name is Ivan, I am a graduated and a accredited guide by the French government departments for Culture and for Tourism, and I work basically in Alsace region. 


I am passionate about the history, the traditions and the gastronomy of the Alsace region which is the native land of my mother.


People say that I have a natural gift for languages. I speak fluently French, English, Spanish and Catalan, but I have also some basic knowledges of the German, Alsatian and Esperanto languages.


I did some volunteer guided tours to train me before to go to the university. Speak and exchange with people make me love my trade. Each guided tour is different, and I always learn new things thanks to visitors questions. I like to see its surprising faces when I tell them anecdotes or small stories.

My career

I am licensed in "Development and Protection of the Cultural Heritage, Speciality Tourist Guide" at the University of Strasbourg.

I am also licensed in "Guide, Information and Tourist Assistances" partially done at the Strasbourg Tourism and Hotel High School


Before getting into the University, I worked as a Tour leader organising cultural & linguistic trips to France and Portugal for a Spanish cultural Association, and I also made some city tours in Strasbourg during my free time to improve my professional skills. 


In September 2016, I entered in Strasbourg University to achieve my Bachelor's degree as a Tourist Guide. It made me improve my knowledge about Alsatian history, history of art and other skills. It also gave me the chance to study in a magnificent building, the "Palais universitaire", declared UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2017. 


I made my internship at the Belfort visitor centre, Belfort Tourisme, which allowed me to know a new city, connected with Alsace region by its common history, and to improve my knowledge about the military heritage and constructions. 


After graduation, I started working as independent guide to share my passion with visitors of Strasbourg and its region. Its culture, its history, its built heritage that must be known by people.
