Before going out on my own – I worked as Public Relations manager for the Polish National Tourist Office in Amsterdam and taught English in Cuzco, Peru. I also served as a consultant to the film industry, worked as a translator and assisted a number of media and tourism organisations and travel agencies worldwide. In love with tourism industry since my student’s time … over 30 years by now! 🙂
I speak Polish, English, Spanish, Dutch and some Russian – working with guests from different countries. For me, language is a tool to get to know people better, understand their culture and mentality and to enjoy the time with them – showing round the city I live now, talking about its history and present life!
I am a member of Site International – www.siteglobal.com and Site Poland, I work as Amsterdam local guide for many different groups as well as individual guests that visit that city – from my home country Poland, different countries from Latin America and The United States. I also act a as tour manager with American groups in Europe and on rivers as cruise director and as an Incentive tour manager for my own Incentive groups in The Netherlands or within other projects worldwide – for both Polish as well as international groups.
Amsterdam is a great place to be! – yet Latin America & Canarias (Tenerife!) have special place in my heart as listening and dancing to salsa music always cheers me up! ☺
