I offer private tours that can be costumized for you and your group according to your personal preferences.
I consider myself a dynamic, proactive, and thoughtful guide. Besides focusing on History and Art, I like to give my tours a laid-back approach, telling stories, funny facts and anecdotes.
I love traveling, nature, and learning from other cultures. I have been working in the Tourism industry for the last twelve years, since I graduated from University. Six years ago I passed the exams to become an Official Tour Guide.
I have lived in five different countries and after spending some time in Australia, I established myself again in Barcelona 9 years ago. Currently, I live in Barcelona with my partner, my son and my dog.
My city is a place to fall in love with. There are many spots in Barcelona not shown in guide books that will surprise you. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about my tours. I will be pleased to assist you! I am very flexible so I can costumize your tour according to your personal preferences.
I am looking forward to showing you my city the way I know it: with its unique architecture, cheerful people, astonishing views, bustling shopping streets. . . and so much more!
See you soon!
A Recent Review of this guide
Our family had a fantastic one day tour with Julie. She is energetic, fun, engaging, funny, smart and really knowledgeable about Barcelona and Catalonia. Our kids (13 and 16 years) really enjoyed her. She provided great historical overviews of the numerous places we visited and added interesting local insights and stories that only someone from Barcelona would know. We spent most of the day with Julie, and we were never without an interesting and fun conversation. I recommend her highly!

I do not drive while on tour. We can use public transport or taxis if needed. I can also arrange a private vehicle with a professional driver.
