Dear history fan;

Thank you for your interest.

My nickname is Leo (although I'm a girl),  I've been working as a tour guide for six years until the pandemic ruined my profession. 

Then, I decided to offer virtual tours so anyone can access culture even if unable to travel. This new type of tours allows me to still share my passion for history with you!

I hope to see you soon!
