As the year draws to a close, it is our pleasure to share the Christmas greetings of some of your favourite local guides with you. 

In Europe the profession of tour guides is taken very seriously. Years of tertiary study in art, culture, architecture, history, geography, language and more are required in order to become an accredited tour guide. In all the countries we tour it is a prerequisite in many towns, cities and sights to be accompanied by an accredited, licensed local guide. These measures ensure that you receive the very best informed local knowledge. 


VERONA

My name is Katia, I was born in Verona and I'm still living here. I've been working as a didactic guide first and then as a registered tourist guide for almost 25 years. Every day gives me a gift, new meetings with people coming from all over the world, and believe me, every single group is unique. That's why when you have TIKI TOURS groups you absolutely remember the beautiful hours spent together. They are always interested in discovering new places, curious about our Italian everyday life, but most of all, totally in love with our art, history and flavors. Great co- operation is the key word with the TIKI TOURS tour leader: Luigi is the perfect one offering great professionalism and friendship. I really hope people joining TIKI TOURS will come to Verona, they will fall in love with this beautiful, incredible and enchanting town, with its 2.000 years of history.

I miei migliori auguri di buon Natale e meraviglioso anno nuovo scoprendo, gustando e trascorrendo del tempo nel nostro magnifico paese! 
I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful happy new year, discovering, tasting and experiencing our magnificent country!


SIRACUSA

Hello, I'm Laura, I have been working with TIKI TOURS since 2005 and I have wonderful memories of each group coming from your agency. The groups I have been accompanying on your behalf in Siracusa (Sicily) for many years now are a great prestige for me and they have always been very cordial towards me.  Many thanks also to Luigi, your tour director, who is not only a real professional but has also become a good friend. 

Auguro a voi tutti i miei più sinceri auguri per un Sereno Natale e un Felice Anno Nuovo
My very best Christmas wishes to you all and a very Happy New Year. 


PARIS

My name is Ghislaine. Many years ago I started giving tours to Australian guests and particularly enjoy dealing with TIKI TOURS. It is so  well organized and with a relaxed pace ... although  highly cultural !!!. The nice thing is to work every year with the same tour manager, Manuela, so we know one another fairly well and we have become not only a good team  but also  great  friends….. Which leads to a warm ambience contagious for the travellers . So I hope I will have the pleasure to meet you for a tour in our GREAT Paris and/or Giverny Village where Claude Monet spent half of his life painting his magnificent gardens.

JOYEUX NOEL A VOUS ET VOS FAMILLES ET MEILLEURS VŒUX POUR UN JOLI DEBUT D ANNEE 2017  

Happy Christmas to you and your families and best wishes for a beautiful start towards 2017  


PISA

Hi! I am Monica, I live in Pisa (Italy) and I am a licensed tourist guide. I have been a guide since 2003 and I have been working with TIKI TOURS since 2005! Every year I welcome with pleasure Tiki's groups in Pisa and meet the great tour manager Luigi accompanying them as usual. It is a sort of ritual for me! See you hopefully in Pisa or Volterra! ;-)


BUON NATALE E UN FANTASTICO 2017 RICCO DI SPLENDIDI VIAGGI  A TUTTI VOI!

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A FANTASTIC NEW YEAR 2107 FULL OF GORGEOUS TRAVELS ALL OVER THE WORLD TO YOU ALL!

 

LEON

I am Patricia and since 2015 I have been working with TIKI TOURS as local tourist guide and each visit is a very enjoyable experience. I am looking forward to this next season!  This Christmas, I want to take the time to send special wishes to TIKI TOURS staff and friends. 

Feliz Navidad y próspero Año Nuevo! 
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 

 

TOLEDO

My name is Mario and I was born fifty one years ago in the lovely city of SPAIN called Toledo, in fact its ancient capital. I really love this job and I wear it proudly. If I remember right it was 2005 when I met Danielle for the very first time. We did the city tour and at the end of that tour she said: ‘Dear Mario thanks a lot for this enjoyable tour it has been very nice of you to put a smile on our face’. Afterwards she gave me a couple of  small koalas toys I still have in the window of my bedroom... many thanks Danielle ! 

TIKI TOURS are very enjoyable because they never rush and we always dedicate enough time for the city tour and free time for lunch, shopping or walk around. I do not want to forget Ms. Manuela, she is always the Portuguese tour leader coming with the Australian clients of TIKI TOURS.


OS DESEO DE CORAZON, UNA FELIZ NAVIDAD Y UN PROSPERO AÑO NUEVO.

FROM DEEP IN MY HEART I WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR.
