Sergio La Spina

Languages:

A Scot by choice, that is how I describe myself.
Passionate about my adoptive country and it's culture.
Born in Argentina and since 1990 living in Edinburgh. I have always been in the Tourism and service industry. Travel agency, hotels, tourist guide.

Knowledge is very important when you are a tour guide, visitors want to be informed and told about sights, history, monuments; but the way you delivered it, is paramount. When you are on holiday you want to be entertain, you want to learn in a fun way and that is the philosophy I follow. Fun, entertaining, knowledgeable.

I graduated as a Scottish Tourist Guide in 1996, and been active as a guide since. Learning and updating constantly. 

I am a York Minster accredited guide, and in 2015 I graduated as a London Blue Badge Guide. 

I guide in English and Spanish.
