Nataliya Worontsova Bowles

Languages:

Having received my Tourist Guiding Proficiency Certificate from the University of Strathclyde along with my Blue Badge in 1996, I have been guiding all over Scotland for many years. I enjoy guiding in Russian, English and Italian because it is so interesting to meet people from all walks of life and to tailor my tours depending on their wishes.

I am passionate about Scotland and strive to inspire my guests to fall in love with my second motherland. I feel that human interest stories of the events, people and places sometimes may be of more interest to the guests than general information widely available online.

Please, join my tours and I promise you will not be disappointed. I will be happy to share my knowledge and passion of the many different aspects of Scotland and Scottish life with you.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
