Hola! My name is Leonor and I am an experienced Tour Director that's been working for EF since 1994. I'm passionate about traveling and culture. I am Spanish. Being the daughter of a Spanish diplomat, I have lived in Chile, Argentina, Portugal, the UK and of course Spain until adulthood. I live in a very beautiful town, outside Madrid, and have lived and travelled through most of Europe and the Americas, both with EF groups or on personal trips. My passions are History, Arts, traveling, reading, gastronomy, and religion.
I practice sports that take place in nature like kayaking, skiing and trekking. I really enjoy my job, it has made and continues to make a great contribution to my life. Traveling has brought me joy and taught me about the many different ways to happiness. It has enlarged my perspective of this world we live in and I love to share this meaning and enthusiasm with my travelers.
Hola! My name is Paz and I have been a Tour Director for 22 years. I studied Law at University and I do Legal translation when I am not on tour. I speak 5 languages (Spanish, English, Italian, Portuguese, French) and my new challenge is learning Arabic. When I don't work, I love reading, the opera and dancing. I am learning to dance tango now.
I am always excited to teach my travelers about the wonders of Spain and Portugal.
Hola! I'm Bernardo. I was born in Valencia, where I grew up and also studied, and live in Madrid since 2004. I also lived in Barcelona and in Dublin (Ireland) for five years. Because of my previous jobs, I gained a lot of travel experience around the whole world for almost twelve years and also traveling on my own for pleasure...so you could say I am a real globetrotter! I love traveling a great deal. Socializing with people is something I always enjoyed and being able to show our culture and traditions is a great honor for me. I really have a passion for traveling and showing all the places I know.
