My name is Marcela and I am a Licensed Official Tour Guide who would love to welcome you in this magical city!
I have got a University degree in English Philology and I have always felt passionate about travelling and making photographs. My different stays in England, Germany and Italy aroused my interest for monuments, art and foreign languages which, after a while, gave rise to a new perspective in my life.
This is the reason why after having worked as a language teacher and as a Management Assistant in multinational companies, I decided to become an official tourist guide. Little did I know about it long ago…!
I have been guiding visitors in this amazing city for seven years now. I enjoy not only working as a guide but also getting in touch with people from other countries and cultures.
I am keen on planning the tours taking into account your preferences and interests. My aim is basically to make the visitors happy during the tour and, above all, to make them really feel at home. I will give quite many local tips and also show you the best iconic sites!
Either in the city, in the mountains or on the coast, we can visit hidden corners and talk about history or just about local traditions and gastronomy, so that you can get a deeper insight of this fantastic place and its friendly people, making an unforgettable experience out of it!.
I hope to see you very soon in Barcelona and I wish you all the best!
Skip the lines! You will have direct access to museums, to World Heritage Sites like Sagrada Familia and other important Gaudi Buildings and even more!
Remember: only Official Guides can do that
A Recent Review of this guide
Marcela organized a wonderful tour for our party of 11 people. Since we were a big group she took care of the transportation as well. She picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel and this made it very easy for us. The mini bus was very comfortable. Marcela did a fantastic job at taking us to the important parts of the city and explaining the history behind it. It was quite a challenge to please the big group but she managed to do so. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and our visit.
