HOLA from the amazing & beautiful town of Barcelona, my hometown.
It was in 1994 when I did my first guided tour and I still remember it!
Since then it has been my full-time work.
I love to show the main sites but also the non-touristy places and explain things that are not in a guide book. You want to save time? Know how? If you hire me you won´t have to queue at any monument.
I want you to LEARN about Barcelona but also have FUN.
I know that different clients have different needs.
"Special tours for special people" ALWAYS THE TOURS ARE PRIVATE, ONLY FOR YOU!
Recent reviews of this tour guide:
We very much enjoyed our 4 hours with Mar. She is very knowledgeable, courteous and fun to be with.
She offers choice but gets to the heart of the matter quickly and uses time wisely by pointing out what is the most important to see.

Reviews of this tour – by clients who booked!
Mar met us at the ship, provided a brief explanation of what was planned for the day.
In the time we had available, Mar covered all the points of interest that Barcelona had to offer and provided commentary that outlined the history at each of the locations.
At no time were we rushed, and had a great tour in the six hours before heading to the airport.
We would recommend Mar to anyone visiting Barcelona, and we found her demeanor very relaxing.
