My name is Ellen. I'm a foodie with a love for authentic, local experiences, and currently divide my time between San Francisco and the East Bay. I'm passionate about travel, so when I'm home, I want to be able to share as many of those experiences as I can with those from abroad. I speak fluent French and intermediate Spanish, so I can communicate with you in those languages if you want a non-English tour. I'm also a writer and musician, with an educational background in literature, art history, and ethnomusicology. I've written articles on travel, culture, urbanism and outdoor adventure, which have been published in a variety of magazines. I've also worked professionally as a tour guide in San Francisco.

Unsurprisingly, my tours tend to focus on culture! And did I mention that I think the best way to travel is on foot? My first big trip after university was to walk 900km across Spain! So put on your walking shoes, and let's go for a stroll.
