Helena Svedova Private tour guide in Brno - Czech Republic

Helena Svedova

Guide profile:

Welcome to my profile about Brno and the Southern Moravian region in the Czech Republic.

I was born in Brno and grew up hiking, cycling and skiing in the surrounding countryside. Having lived and worked 7 years in Canada, (volunteered in JASPER and YOHO NP, Alberta), traveled widely in Europe, Canada, the USA and New Zealand, I understand very well how daunting an unfamiliar culture and language can be at first. So my hope is that I can be a "cultural bridge" and make Brno and the area that I love so much a bit more accessible to you who might otherwise think that the Czech Republic was only Prague.

5 stars Robert S.

Helena is a great guide. She took time to share the wonders of the BRNO region with me considering my personal interests, experiences and knowledge. Helena was able to share both nature & history as well as culture & cuisine. Our lunch included local wild boar served in a traditional sauce with dumplings & great local wine. We visited the country and the city - the caves and the cathedrals - wonderful - I highly recommend Helena - I intend to come back & learn even more from Helena next time!
