I hold degrees in Tourism and Social Studies Education from Barcelona University and have lived in UK, France and Germany.
Previously I worked at the Spanisches Fremdenverkehrsamt (the official Spanish Tourism Office) in Frankfurt am Main (Germany) responsible for the promotion of Catalan tourism, organizing trips for travel agents and German journalists to several tourist resorts in Catalonia such as: La Costa Brava, the Pyrenees and Barcelona.
In 2014 I decided to become a full-time local tour Guide and to merge my knowledge and interest in art, culture, the city of Barcelona and my affection for interacting with people.
I'm a personable and engaging guide who likes sharing my knowledge with enthusiasm to all people. I will provide helpful recommendations to help you get more from Barcelona.
I customize the tours according to preferences, since each person or group have specific interests. Only Licensed Guides like me can offer explanations inside museums or monuments, and are allowed to skip museum queues.
I am looking forward to sharing my city, its surroundings and the rich Catalan culture with You.
A Recent Review of this guide
Anna was amazing. She took us in through a private entrance (not the standard or group entrances) where we went through our own security line. Her tour was thorough, yet concise - not lingering overly long on any one piece, but giving us enough time and background to really appreciate the beauty of the Sagrada. Her descriptions really helped bring the history alive for us. We especially liked how she pointed out the more interesting exhibits in the museum portion.
