Ever since I was a teenager I wanted to be a tour guide. I love meeting new people and being able to share part of my culture and history.
I studied in Buenos Aires and graduated as a Tour guide in the year 2000.
After doing a master's degree in Spain I came back to Argentina and decided I didn't want to live in a big city anymore. So I chose Ushuaia as my new home, and moved here in 2002. I soon started working for a local company and after a few years I was hired to work as a trip leader taking American groups to Antarctica and Patagonia.
I met my husband in Ushuaia, and we now have two little girls who share our passion for nature.
Working as a tour guide is a rewarding and fulfilling experience. I'm very passionate about my country, and love to talk about anything passengers are interested in. I'm very friendly and knowledgeable about my city, our traditions and history and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you.
As every person is different and has different interests, I'm more than willing to organize the kind of tour you need, so don't hesitate and ask!
If you take a tour with me, I'll make sure you visit and enjoy Ushuaia in a different way, offering an insight of what life is like in this part of the world.
The End of the World awaits your visit! See you soon. . .
A Recent Review of this guide
We really enjoyed our tour to the end of the world with Barbara, she was very professional, knowledgeable, friendly and fun. The picnic break we took at the lake was a bonus and we really enjoyed the treats Barbara made for us. All the food and drinks were from local products. I would highly recommend this tour and Barbara. Thank you Barbara Sincerely Donna, Michael, Bonnie, Ross, Beccy and Rick
