Official Tour Guide in Alsace

Melissa Hallais

Melissa Hallais

Born and raised in Brazil, after finishing my university studies I went in search of new perspectives. The possibility of living abroad, learning new languages and acquiring new professional skills saw me land in Spain and England, as well as navigating the seven seas while working on cruise ships.

By s stroke of destiny I ended up in Strasbourg. The connection was immediate. The curiosity to learn about the history of Alsace led me to attend the Technical Course in Guiding at the University of Strasbourg. My passion for the region grows every day, facing every new detail I see and learn about its rich and touching history.

I always carry with me my camera - an object that allows me to continue developing a sensitive look - and my virtual backpack with a baggage of more than twenty years of experience in the tourism industry.

Feedback

My girlfriend and I took part into one of her Strasbourg Photo Tours a few days ago. Not only were we incredibly pleased to explore a different neighbourhood, but Melissa also made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. It is amazing to see how she combines knowledge and creativity. Not to be missed when in the city.

Melissa was very friendly and knowledgeable. Her speeches are natural and spontaneous. Besides, she is very creative when it comes to photography. Her keen eye combined with her directing skills resulted in great shots!

Great balance between historical facts and present-day Strasbourg. A must!

I was the only participant on one of her walking tours. I was a bit doubtful how she would handle this, but to my surprise she used that in her favour. She took the time to also introduce me to other aspects of the culture, such as gastronomy. It was a delight. I truly recommend her.

I did one of her walking tours, enjoyed it so much that decided to book another one with her. The photo tour of Strasbourg was a beautiful surprise. What a talented young woman!

Mélissa est une guide très agréable et très à l’écoute. Notre groupe comportait des enfants et elle s’est très bien adaptée. Elle a su nous faire découvrir le quartier de la Krutenau de manière intéressante. Elle a aussi été ponctuelle. Je recommande! (via Google)
