Mar R.

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain

Hi! My name is Mar and I am a Licensed Tour Guide of Barcelona and Catalonia.

It was in 1994 when I did my first guided tour and I still remember it. Since then, it has been my full-time job, and I LOVE IT

As a native of Barcelona and a local expert, I know that travelers have different needs, so I can also suggest a tailor-made tour for your party.
My clients range from couples, friends, families with children, to seniors…

My goal is you to learn a lot about the visited sites, the history, culture, traditions, gastronomy while having fun. I will also show you the places where the locals go and visit, recommend you restaurants, shopping areas and much more.

Would you like to save time and see as much as possible? With me, you will SKIP ALL THE LINES at museums and also monuments.

Because of my traveling background to many different countries, I will also be able to share nice memories with you.

See you soon in Barcelona and remember that all the TOURS ARE ALWAYS PRIVATE, ONLY FOR YOU!

A Recent Review of this guide

Mar is an excellent guide. Not only did we receive general info, but also wonderful specifics about Gaudi, Las Ramblas, the Gothic Quarter, and Sagrada Familia. Very personable. You will enjoy the tour and the time
