I’m from Argentina, and I live in Bruges since 2015.
I’m a local tourist guide. I’m passionate about new cultures and travels.

I’m an Athletics teacher graduated from the Vlaamse Trainer School in Ghent and got the EREPS level 3 European Fitness Certificate. I have experience in personal training for duathlons, marathons, adventure, and urban trails.
Flavia and Jorge met in 2008 in Bruges and decided to combine their talents, knowledge, and work experience.
As a result, Tour Local was born.
TOUR LOCAL was created to offer personalized tours outside the most visited tourist circuits. They are 100% made by local guides.
We offer walking, cycling, and running tours through different places in Flanders.
TOUR LOCAL is a company with social and ecological responsibility.
We were concerned by the growth of mass tourism in Bruges, especially in some of the most popular areas in the historic centre, along with the rising number of guided tours with big groups of people that generated distress to both the local community and travellers.
This is why we decided that we would work in harmony with the local surroundings and keep a sustainable form of tourism respectful to the local community. We adopted a Small Group Philosophy, reducing the maximum number of our groups.
This allowed us to reduce the impact of our tours on the local community and provide a better experience for our customers.
