Meet your guide, Marta

Hi, my name is Marta and I can’t wait to host you in the heart of the Great Caucasian Mountains in my native Ossetia! I’m a travel guide and a professor at a local university. I love introducing people to the culture and beauty of North Ossetia and hope that after the virtual tour you will want to  “taste” my small motherland in person!

I really enjoyed this live online tour of North Ossetia! The small group size allowed all of us to ask questions and participate, and our guide Marta was great. She showed us beautiful pictures and videos not just of the country, but of her life...her cousin's wedding, the road leading to Georgia (with her house in the view), even a few seconds of her mother giving advice to the new bride. Unlike a recorded tour, this felt personal and genuine. It was absolutely fascinating to learn about this little-known republic from someone who is clearly so proud of her heritage there. Marta's English is excellent and she is very easy to understand (and has a lovely accent). It was really interesting to learn about the culture, the battles that shaped this area, and of course, the famous Ossetian pies! Anyways, I highly recommend taking this virtual tour with a group of friends for a fun and unusual experience!

Marta’s tour was great! I was engaged the whole time, and I really liked how it flowed naturally from topic to topic, not spending too much time on one subject. I loved the pictures and music, and feel I was really able to get a good grasp of what both North Ossetian culture and people are like. Throughout the tour I could send the love and pride Marta has for her home. It’s such a unique and beautiful place!
