Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain

HOLA!! Welcome to Barcelona! My name is MÍRIAM. Thrilled to be part of ToursByLocals team after 20 years working as a professional tour guide!

Thrilled to be part of ToursByLocals team after 20 years working as a professional tour guide!


I started working as a tour guide in 2000. In the meantime I went back to University to study Art History, 3 years.

I am an experienced, personal & professional Licensed Guide fully authorised to guide inside museums and historic sites.

Passionate, super flexible, very knowledgeable about Gaudí's architecture, Dalí's, Miró's, Picasso's paintings, Jewish heritage, my culture & my country.

I am looking forward to bringing my love for:
- art, history, food (I have wonderful recommendations for the best restaurants), lifestyle, boutiques (I do Shopping tours, I can help you to find the perfect gift).

I work for schools and I love kids! I know how to keep them engaged, even teenagers!

I'll give you a real feel of what it is like to be a local and I'll take you off the beaten path .

I love been a storyteller and giving you a mix of history and current culture facts including some good temptations.

Wonderful memories are to come in a place but is the people you meet what it makes it UNFORGETTABLE!! That's my GOAL!

Let me be your personal guide and show you things in a short few hours that would take you weeks of research and years of experience to teach you.

It would be my absolute pleasure! As I want everybody to keep unforgettable memories of Barcelona and Catalonia.

I will do my best to customise for you the perfect tour, based on your special interests and as I already said. . .

Barcelona is a walking city, It depends on the tour you prefer we may use subway/taxi
Certain clients prefer travelling by private car/van. That can always be arranged by myself with little anticipation.
