I have been working in the hospitality and tourism business for almost 18 years, mainly in hotels and tour companies in Spain, South East Asia and the United States.
Five years ago I decided to become a professional tour guide and passed the exams that allow me to work as a licensed tour guide not only in Barcelona but also in Catalonia. I hold a bachelor's degree in Art History and a second bachelor's degree in Business (Hospitality and Tourism). This solid background allows me to deliver a top notch service and exceed the expectations of my clients.
I love my job, I love my hometown Barcelona and I love my country, Catalonia. It is always a pleasure to share my knowledge about my country and my hometown with visitors coming from all around the world.
I would like to be your host during your stay in Barcelona, please feel free to write me if you have any question about my the tours posted on ToursByLocals.
I look forward to seeing you soon in Barcelona!!!
A Recent Review of this guide
Tano was enthusiastic and informative on all things Gaudi, which was even more impressive considering he had run a full marathon the day before our tour! Tano truly made us feel like friends at the end of the tour. Thank you for helping make my family's first trip to Europe a great one!
