I've been living for over 5 years in Barcelona, the city of my dreams! After all that time I can confirm it really is an amazing city to travel to and live in. You will find great food, beautiful architecture, a nice climate, interesting culture and history, and a touch of the Spanish tranquility. . . A perfect combination for me personally. I learnt a lot about the city, her inhabitants, food and local culture, and keep exploring new things.
I love sharing all I know with visitors from all over the world and giving people a nice time. Being a city guide is for me the perfect combination of two of my favorite things: I get to combine the cultural aspect and fun of the city, with meeting new, interesting people. I am a highly positive person, always trying my best to give you a good time in our beautiful city.
I first worked 8 years in Marketing but then I founded my own company in early 2016 with a focus on sociable impact in tourism, especially for people in Spain with reduced mobility or in a wheelchair. I combine managing my own company with freelance tour guiding. It feels so rewarding to take every single client, no matter his or her ability, to walk to the most beautiful hidden gems in the city.
I love to customise your tour, let me know what your interests are so I can share my secret tips for the best shops, brunch bars, museums, districts, rooftop terraces, and much more in Barcelona. Getting to know you better before and during the tour is for me the definition of fun.
In my spare time I love reading, going for a hike in the hills near Barcelona, and spending time with family and friends. I've personally built a life of which I could never have dreamed when I left Belgium. I met my boyfriend Daniel here, we have a young baby, and . . . I get to work in this beautiful city as a tour guide and travel agent.
So please feel welcome in my beautiful city, and prepare for a nice experience together!
Hasta pronto in Barcelona!

Esther D. was amazing! She was very very fun to be with, knowledgeable, had great insight into the areas and brought us to fabulous tapas, pinxto and olive oil spots for our tour. I highly recommend this tour! We went in the evening and it was fun to see the areas by night. Thank you Esther!!
I am a tour guide since January 2016 in Barcelona!
