Luana Riccardi Private tour guide in Barcelona - Spain

Luana Riccardi

Guide profile:


this is Luana from Barcelona.

I am hugely passionate about my city and I love sharing my contagious enthusiasm with my guests.

Barcelona is a unique, a vibrant city, one of the most enthralling and fascinating ones, with districts so different from each others.

I have guiding since 2000, first as a tour manager throughout Europe, then as a local licensed guide in Rome and now in Barcelona. As a passionate traveller I have learned as well how important is to find the right guide, to feel like you are in good professional hands and at the same time to feel comfortable, just like with an old friend.

I will be very glad to offer you tailor made tours to suit your interests, dates and times of availability and offer local recommendations to help make your trip memorable and authentic.

See you in Barcelona.

Luana gave an UNBELIEVABLE Tour of Barcelona for my wife and I during our honeymoon. She did an amazing job of keeping the trip informative, fun, as well as mixing historical sites with amazing restaurants for food and wine. We highly recommend taking a tour of this beautiful city with Luana and feel so fortunate to have found her.

Luana is the best! She knows Barcelona and it’s history pretty well. Most of all, she’s got a cool, awesome personality. I’ll recommend her in a hearbeat. Thanks Luana for a commendable job.

My husband and I had an AMAZING time with Luana. We enjoyed her tour of the city so much, we booked a second tour with her to do a Gaudi tour. She is extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating to keep at a pace that you enjoy.

We have told friends to book with her too!

Very difficult being in Barcelona, 2 days after horrific terrorism attack on Las Ramblas, but our wonderful guide, Luana Riccardi was informative, fun, interesting and very conversational. We had a driver, as well, and 5 of us went all ver the city, of several hours. She couldn't have been more amazing under what clearly were trying circumstances. We ended our day at las Ramblas and walked the roadway together (it was her first time being back there) a few tears were shed. Amazing!

My family of four (18 yrs. +) spent two wonderful days with our guide, Luana Riccardi, exploring the city sites, as well as taking a Gaudi tour. It was both our first time in Spain, and the first time using a private tour guide, and after our experience, we would recommend anyone who would like to make the most of limited time to take advantage of Luana's services. She was/is engaging, intelligent, personable, and very adept at engaging the attention of every person in my family. Her wealth of

Luana was a great guide! Our group of 9 women thoroughly enjoyed the days we spent with her. Her presentations were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. My company will definitely use her services again.

5 stars Lexie C. 24 Oct 2016

My wife and I just toured with Luana for two days in Barcelona. She is terrific! Very warm and engaging. Very genuine. And fun! Her English is perfect, her knowledge of Barcelona and Spain is truly impressive. Details on history, culture, and day-to-day life were delivered with confidence, humor and warmth. Leaving Luana at the end of our tour was a sad moment as we had gotten to know her so well. We recommend her completely.

5 stars Stacey V. 21 Jul 2016

5 stars Lynn M. 12 Sep 2015

Having Luana Riccardi as our guide in Barcelona was the very best choice we could have made! She met us at the airport with a smile and a hug, and she was so enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and pleasant that we wished we could take her with us on the rest of our trip! Thru the booking process she was responsive and offered excellent suggestions, and she was truly a delight. We were left at our hotel, tired but so happy, and we all hope to return to Spain and Luana one day soon!

5 stars Jay F. 06 Sep 2015

Simply the best tour guide ever had

5 stars Eric C. 22 Aug 2015

Luana was fantastic - over 2 days (3 hrs each) she showed us Gothic Barcelona and then Gaudi's masterpieces.

She brought both to life with great enthusiasm and incredibly in depth knowledge - that had it not been for her extremely lively personality could have been overwhelming. She was particularly great in keeping our kids (7 and 11) engaged. Extremely highly rated!

Luanna is great, highly recommended.

Luana was the perfect guide for our small family group. She is very articulate and informative. She paced the tour beautifully so that we covered everything in depth allowing for our 89 year old mother, who incidentally, said that it was the best tour she had been on. We would have liked to spend another day touring with her.

This was the first time one of my clients requested a private guide in Barcelona. I was a little concerned,but was immediately relieved with Luana's prompt and warm responses to every inquiry I made. My client was traveling with his wife and daughter and spent 3 days with Luana. They absolutely loved her and emailed the following feedback: Luana was WONDERFUL! Warm, friendly and very knowledgable. I think we would have loved Barcelona in any event but she certainly made it easy. Great job.

5 stars Ali J. 18 Dec 2014

Luana is an amazing guide. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our tours in Barcelona. She has the right blend of historical facts and interesting anecdotes about the city and monuments. In addition she is very knowledgable and eager to share her knowledge on Catalan culture, history and tradition.

Her restaurant recommendations were fantastic. We just could not get enough of all the delicious food.

I would definitely recommend Luana to anybody who wants their trip to Barcelona made very speci

Luana is a fantastic guide! I highly recommend to anyone travelling to Barcelona to take her as your personal guide. She is very friendly, nice, and full of information. My wife and I had a wonderful time in Barcelona with Luana.

Luana was absolutely wonderful! She was pleasant, very knowledgeable and provided just enough information so that we were not bored or overwhelmed! Her enthusiasm for Barcelona was so contagious - we got caught in her web! Loved her tour!

5 stars Linda F. 03 Jun 2014

We were a group of 7 with 2 teens and can't say enough good things about Luana. We all fell in love with her. She met us at our hotel and spent the day with us and it seemed like we had known her forever. She makes guiding seem effortless and there wasn't a question we asked that she couldn't answer. She is a plethora of knowledge of the area and tailor-makes the tour. You will not be sorry if you choose her. Thanks Luana!!

5 stars Ana M. 18 May 2014

Our experience with Luanna was excellent! We highly recommend her, specially for Spanish speaking persons...

5 stars Brian H. 17 May 2014

I had Luana for a tour of Rome in 2012 and made sure to have her for my trip to Barcelona in 2014. Once again she did not disappoint. My brother and i had a Tapas tour and Gaudi tour, both made even better with Luana to guide us. Highly recommend her and i for one will book her again for either Rome or Barcelona. Thanks Luana.

5 stars Robert S. 10 May 2014

Luana Riccardi gets 10 stars but unfortunately we can only give her 5.

I spent hours looking for a guide to enhance our Gaudi tour and make it a special event. We were so lucky to decide on Luana. She is a mature, intelligent, energetic young woman who loves what she does. She speaks very good English and has the gift of being able to design your tour and time with her masterfully. Do not look any further for "the perfect guide". You have found her!!!!!

5 stars heather G. 10 Sep 2013

Luana is spectacular! My group booked with her in both Barcelona AND Rome. AMAZING! she was on time, knowledgable, energetic, priority access always, small places that made us feel like no one else really gets to see this but US. You will not go wrong to book with Luana. She can take care of EVERYTHING, smart, funny. just a terrific experience. She truly made our European vacation the best! Thank you Luana! best wishes to you and your family!
