Laura S.

Barcelona, Spain

Hello, my name is Laura, and I am a Licensed Barcelona Tour Guide since 1999.

Since I started studying, I knew I wanted to be a Tour Guide. I love culture and art and after so long I still enjoy doing what I do. I feel very lucky to do the job I like. It's more than a job, it's a way of life.

I am a passionate of travelling. I've lived in France, Italy, and United States, and for a while I was a Tour Director for travel companies and I've travelled to many places around the world. I travel whenever I have an occasion!
I have a Degree in Tourism and a Postgraduate Degree in Cultural Tourism. At this moment I am also studying the Degree of Humanities at the University. I try to continuously join programs to learn more about our history, art and culture.

I love to be in contact with people from abroad and show them Barcelona through walking tours in the Gothic Quarter and its hidden spots, by making them discover its gastronomy and wines, the art of Picasso, Gaudí and so many artists that had left their footprint here. I also give tours to the F. C. Barcelona Stadium. Barcelona is an spectacular place! Other tours will be in other places in Catalonia: Girona, Dalí Museum, Sitges or Costa Brava.

I mainly give my tours in English and French, but also in Italian, Spanish or Catalan, my mother language.
I can adapt the tours to your needs and if there is something you don't see in the detailed tours here described, ask me, the tour will always be a tailored made tour for you, your family or friends. Tours will be always private.
Only Licensed Guides like me, can give explanations inside museums or monuments, and we are allowed to skip Museum entrance lines. We will not waste time in that!

Contact me, and I will help in anything to make the most of your time in Barcelona! This city is a wonderful place and I invite you to discover it with me!
See you soon!

A Recent Review of this guide

This was amazing experience for the adults and two kids as well. We wouldn't have appreciated or enjoyed the Gaudí sites without Laura show us and explaining everything along the way. She made everything come alive, got the kids involved in exploring the locations, and helped us understand the history behind every location. She was AMAZING!
