So, a part from offering tailor made tours, I also offer tours-lessons with which you practise your Spanish while discovering the secrets of the city. I have an array of unique 'activities in the street' for the purpose.
As a teacher, I used the street as a classroom for many years and it was by doing so that I discovered my passion to show my home-town. I became a licensed tour guide in 2005. Now it's my full job and I love it. It's extremely rewarding and it keeps me always busy exploring, reading and learning. As a licensed tour guide I have PREMIUM access to all monuments. Very convinient since when on holidays time becomes precious: we'll skip the lines even in UNESCO World Heritage Sites and the work of Antoni Gaudí, such as Sagrada Familia or Park Güell.
You are the boss, therefore it's very important to design the best visit just for you, that's why my tours are tailor made depending on your time and interests, but because Barcelona is very eclectical, I make sure you won't miss some off the beaten-track sites to gain a feeling of local life. I also take into account what's going on in the city at the time in order to make the most out of your visit. I'll be very happy to recommend, my main concern is to make you live unforgettable experiences.
Thanks to my teaching background, I'm used to deal with all kinds of people and my explanations are very dynamic, instructive and a pleasure to the ears. I am always very flexible and my tours are adapted either to shore excursions or private tours. I love to tour couples, friends, single visitors and, as a mother of a 13 year old child, families as well.
If you stay for some days, I recommend a day out of the city to discover a more traditional and local Catalonia: Girona and Costa Brava or Dali's Museum; or a bit closer: Montserrat mountain or Colonia Güell; a winery in Penedés area, Sitges or our Catalan little Rome: Tarragona.
It will be a honor to accompany you while discovering all these treasures.
Hope to meet you soon and thanks for reading my profile!
