I am a true Barcelonian and I've been giving tours since 2000. I love my city, know it in deep and enjoy showing it around to visitors. It’s amazing how after so many years giving local tours I still enjoy it as if it was the very first time: and that’s because I adore to see my guests having fun! Plus this long experience has given me lots of resources to make every tour a success.

I’ve lived in France, the USA and Russia, and I have travelled also to most countries in Europe and a couple in the Middle East (and my must-go list is still very long!). So my travel experience helps me enlightening my tours: I’ll give you not just data (which of course I know by heart, being a certified tourguide), but also a human touch only a local can give you: anecdotes that bring the stones and paintings alive, ancient stores and markets, traditional food, local way of life, unique details you were likely to miss… as well as many great ideas for the rest of you time in town!

My clients say my English is perfect… as I say, 10 years giving tours are a lot of practice! And my Translation university degree trained me to look for language command. I also give tours in Spanish, French and Italian, by the way!

Gaudi architecture is my passion. The flavour of the Old Town charms me. The Mediterranean sea gives our land a personal touch. The Montjuic Hill symbolizes Culture and Enterteinment. Our museums are Full of Life.

And above all, my tours are Flexible and Adaptable to your needs and interests. It's Your Tour!

My fees depend on the type/destination of tour, transportation (I can hire a driver, if you need) and length of the tour. Contact me to learn more!

Ideally you need three days to discover Barcelona: one for the Gaudí works, one for the Old Town, and another for Montjuic, the waterfront, your favourite museums, some shopping, going to the beach… But if you don’t have that much time, I’ll help you seeing as much as possible in the most efficient and fun way!

And if you still have some more time left, then we can explore the surroundings together: the Montserrat Holy Mountain and Monastery are a favourite, the Penedes wine country isn’t far, the Girona Jewish heritage is fascinating, the Dali Museums are uniquely unforgettable, the Costa Brava is the best seaside to relax, the city of Tarragona hides and impressive Roman past… What would be your favourite choice?
