Ona D.

Sant Cugat del Vallés (Barcelona), Catalunya, Spain

My name is Ona, local licensed guide active since 2008.

I was surrounded by architecture, art and history since I was a baby, and I love it.

My goal is that YOU ENJOY while LEARNING about the city, the monuments, its artists, the paintings; or maybe while eating a bit of 'Jamon' and drinking a nice cup of Penedés.
I will start our private tour asking you about your wishes to tailor it. You might be interested in details more than general information, or more in photography rather than historical data. Only a few minutes face to face is my strategy for a perfect customized tour based on your requests and taste. At the end, all your expectations and wishes will be accomplished, and you will feel pleased and content.

Everything is connected: the walls of Gothic Barcelona cathedral are so tall because of pirates. PIRATES? Yes, Sir. Ask me why. I will give you true data with interesting ANECDOTES.
I love to connect art, social, historical data, anecdotes and compare them with different countries or actual happenings.

The tours I prepare are art oriented and at the same time FUN. I can personalize any of those and turn them, all of a sudden, into something else such for example a gastronomic tour if this is what it is needed in that moment.
I try to be FLEXIBLE, and I understand that after flying so many miles, you deserve the best because THIS - IS - YOUR- HOLIDAY!

Barcelona, Girona, or Tarragona are a GIFT OF LIGHT, art, history, traditions, gastronomy, joy and… much more.

LET ME SHARE ALL OF THIS WITH YOU!

A Recent Review of this guide

Ona was really fun and very knowledgeable - better than we could have ever wished for. She knew all about the history of Barcelona even though her sepeciality is Art and Architecture. She took us to the perfect restaurant for lunch after my husband pointed at a Catalan painting and said "That is where I want to go for lunch"! She was fantastic. Everyone should have such luck wit a guide!
