Senior Program Manager
Rebecca joined WegenKunstReisen in July 2019. She has worked in the tourism industry for over 15 years, arranging special interest itineraries for groups from the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South America, and Europe, with a focus on music, educational, professional tours, and sports.
She has lived and studied in the US, completed her internationally focused studies at the University of Bonn. She has worked for and with commercial industries, companies and non-governmental organizations at local and international levels. She not only promotes cultural exchange in her day-to-day work, but on a personal basis continues to explore many corners of the world in an attempt to learn more about foreign cultures, their people, and herself.
Wether teaching English to refugees in India, rambling with an RV through New Zealand's natural wonders, or curating the "KunstamStrand" sculpture exhibition in Sylt, she likes to peel back the obvious to discover the hidden layers travel has to offer. This curiosity has carried her to the Americas, New Zealand, the South Pacific, Africa, Asia, and throughout Europe; Rome still being one of her favorite "onions".
Her home base is Bonn, where she lives with her family.
All of our Berlin tours will be accompanied by a local expert who knows her city by heart. Your guide Claudia has been living in Berlin for more than 30 years. As a licensed guide and „professional Berliner“, she offers city tours in Berlin and its surroundings.
While working as a head of a financial institution, she experienced first hand the fall of the Berlin wall. Influenced through her profession, she has always had an interest in getting further insight into different companies and their philosophies, as well as, their new developments.
In 2003, she turned her passion into her profession and left the financial industry to become a licensed guide. With a strong personal interest in contemporary art, she loves to explore the local museums and art galleries with her groups but also likes to weave cultural diversity and the many historical twists of the city into her tours.
