I was_born and educated in Great Britain with a Dutch father and an English mother and after taking a degree in History I married an Italian and began the wonderful adventure that has been life in Italy. We settled in Parma in 1990 and I have been a licensed guide for the city and environs of Parma for nearly 25 years.
I specialize in art history tours, music tours built around the figures of Verdi and Toscanini and food and wine tours which take in the products of excellence of the Parma area. I work with agencies and individuals and use my experience in collaborating in the preparation of customized tours guaranteed to give the visitor the best possible experience of the Parma area. My tours are aimed at sharing information with knowledge, enthusiasm and humour, English style !
