I was born 30 Kilometers north of Barcelona, and choosed Barcelona to live in, as I felt in LOVE with this 2000 year old city, its old streets, , its culture, architecture, and the charm of it all . If you permit me I would love to show you around as it has become one of my passions, I am very proud, to live and be a Catalan-barcelonian , and I'll help you to discover around, enjoy Barcelonian habits, tics and little secrets.
As a licensed tour guide, with knowledge of Art and Architecture, I have access to all monuments, including UNESCO World Heritage Sites and the work of Antoni Gaudi, like the Sagrada Familia. In almost all cases, you'll skip the lines with me.
I am always very flexible and my tours are adapted to shore excursions as well and focus primarily in private tours.
As a boy I always felt interested in other cultures, and I wanted to learn other languages, so I Studied Tourism and learned 5 languages, apart from Catalan and Spanish. Now I'm focused on English and Portuguese speaking market.
I have been working as a local tour Guide in Barcelona for 19th years. I've always worked in tourism, since my studies, started in Hotels, Travel Agency, Barcelona Airport, Incentives&congresses, so I have a background in Tourism.
In my family have been and are artists, so I have a particular personal point of view of the city, in this line. I grow up surrounded by artists, My grandfather (Rafael Estrany Ros), was a painter and creator of an arts School in Mataro 30 km north of Barcelona. My father (Jordi Estrany Castany), was an architect. My uncle (Santi Estrany Castany), was also a painter, and my brother (Roger Estrany Sanfeliu), is a musician and also painter. So art is something very common at the family.
Its gonna be a pleasure to show you "My Barcelona", and not only Gaudís architecture. . .
In other words on the hand of "the" local, . . . . . you'll enjoy the best of Barcelona and Catalonia.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me in order to customize tours, prepared by a local!!
Happy to provide a tour in the hands of an expert licensed guide that got passion in his profession!
I am looking forward to Meet you!
A Recent Review of this guide
I wanted you to know that Sergi provided us a fabulous tour for us. Because of Sergi, my family and I are thinking about visiting Barcelona again. On the day of the tour, Sergi arrived to our hotel on time and was ready to take our group on a tour of Barcelona. We visited major tourist sites in Barcelona by Metro, taxi and by foot. During the tour, Sergi provided quite a bit of history about the city and its architecture. I would recommend Sergi to any of my friends. Great guy!!!! Sincerely, Joseph Terry
