About us

Turin Piedmont Guides is a group of three Professional Licensed Local Guides and Tour Leaders, based in Torino.

We offer a set of standardised and customized city tours and excursions both to the main cities of Piedmont Region as well as to the world-known Unesco sites such as the Vineyard Landscape of Langhe, Monferrato and Roero, the lake district, the Sacred Mounts and the rice fields. Our tours can be customized according to your preferences, interests, time and budget.


My name is Cristina and I was born and raised in Turin.

I have a University degree in foreign languages English and Chinese (HSK level 4) and thanks to my passion for different languages and cultures I can speak German and French.

I have been working as a local guide for 15 years! I started in 2005 one year before the event that made Turin and Piedmont well known all over the world: the famous 2006 Winter Olympic Games.

The love for art pushed me to attend   University courses on Italian Art (architecture, painting and sculpture) mainly of the Baroque period.

Reliability and Passion are probably the best words to describe me. In my job, I try to make every tour a real unforgettable experience. You just have to choose your favourite tour and relax because I will be more than happy to show you my hometown and my wonderful land Piedmont Region.

My name is Matteo and I am a professional Local Guide since 2003 and led dozens of groups around.

With a background in Diplomacy and international relations, I started working in the tourism field soon after achieving University degree, working as a tour director for several international tour operators, mostly based in the USA and UK as well as many  Italian companies.

After the XXth Winter Olympics, which made a turning point for the tourism flows to Piedmont Region and its capital city, Torino, I had the chance to start cooperating with numerous travel agencies worldwide, serving audiences from every Continent.

History and arts are my passion, although I also have a passion for anecdotes with which I do usually enrich my commentaries to add some fun for my fellow listeners.

Food and wine are also a big passion of mine: join a tour with me and feel free to ask anything about it: I will be glad to answer any questions about the extraordinary local and national culinary art.

My name is Carla and I have been working as a tour leader since 1991. In 2005 I also got the licence as a professional local guide in my region, Piedmont, just in time for the XXth Winter Olympic Games, which marked a dramatic change from the industrial core business of the city into a highly appreciated tourist destination.

That’s the reason why I am currently working in my birth town, Torino, but also all over Italy and Europe for several Italian and foreign companies, mostly leading French, American and German groups.

My educational background is strictly linked to my passion: travels and languages.  That is why I got the University degree in foreign languages (German, French and English).

I am quite sporty, skiing being my main passion as well as trekking and mountain biking. Such activities make me happy because I spend time in nature and keep me in a good shape. If you are sporty too do not forget that we can customize bike tours or trekking excursions to the so called “Olympic” mountains. Feel free to ask for more information.
