Maria NADINA Private tour guide in Barcelona - Spain


Guide profile:

If you are full of questions about Barcelona, you have come to the right place. After more than a decade working as a Tour guide and coordinating international events around the world, I have discovered a deeper understanding of the different nationalities and personalities with which I come in daily contact through my work.

I was born in Belgrade (former-Yugoslavia) and my first foreign experience came with a move to Berlin in 1990 to study for a degree in German Language and Literature. Transferring to Barcelona in the summer of 1992, I found this glorious city just re-awaking from the lethargy of the past decades thanks to the Olympic games, which transformed the city for the years to come…

Let me share with you my personal insights about Barcelona and you will see that it is impossible not to fall in love with this city and its people...

See my tours and let me know how can I best help you to explore the city.

Maria was a wonderful guide. She took us on a walking tour of Barcelona that explored the nooks and crannies that tourists would never see on their own. Her knowledge of the history of Catalonia, Spain, and Europe was superb. We highly recommend her.

5 stars Karl S. 04 Sep 2017

Hire her. Hire her! Hire Her! She is the best. Knowledgeable, Flexible, Interesting. She made the city come alive. Solved problems. Listened to our needs and interests. She expertly helped us thru a delious tapas meal, gave us a historical overview of the city, we saw many of Barcelona's important sites, even took us shopping to hidden little shops for gifts. In two days she became a friend not just a guide. We loved Barcelona and to great degree it was because of Maria. Hire her!

Maria is an excellent guide without any doubt. She accepted my booking in an very short time, and managed to get the tickets of Sagrada Familia even all the tickets had been sold out. She is also very knowledgeable and willing to help. Highly recommended!

5 stars Lynn S. 02 Oct 2016

Maria is an Excellent Guide. We used her services for a few hours on the day we arrived in Barcelona and for a few the next day before boarding our cruise ship. She was knowledgeable, helpful and gave good advice. She prearranged tickets for Sagrada Familia and Palau de la Musica, both recommended sites to see in the short time we had.

5 stars DeAnna S. 08 Sep 2016

I would highly recommend Maria for a very knowledgeable, educational cultural background of the history of the lovely town of Barcelona, Spain. She really has some wonderful stories and fabulous recommendations to any restaurant for your particular requested food choices. I would highly recommend you book her early as she is a gem and you might miss out on the pleasure of having her show you Barcelona

We have done many private guided tours and this was the BEST ! I would not hesitate to endorse her without reservation. If we ever get back to Barcelona, we will definite want to use her again.

We managed to plan a personalized tour of the sites we wanted to visit and Maria was most accommodating as well as making some very relevant suggestions. She was punctual, very knowledgeable and professional. She was flexible with our needs and also our budget. We had a great tour with her and would highly recommend her.

5 stars Nadine L. 18 Jun 2014

Maria Nadina was a great guide for Barcelona. She took us to the sights we requested for 4 hours one day, and the next 4-hour day we visited parts of the old city we never would have found without her. She is very knowledgeable of Barcelona history, is on time, and was agreeable to changes in sights to see. It was a perfect way to see Barcelona - a city of many interesting sights.

5 stars mandy B. 11 Jun 2014

Maria was great tailoring 6 hrs each of 2 days so that saw everything we wanted to, and somethings we would never have found by ourselves. She organised transport to enable disabled parent to make the most of our time in Barcelona too . Very knowledgeable and able to give us just the right amount of info so we were not overwhelmed but came away knowing a lot more than when we started. Highly recommend

I and my family had a wonderful day in Barceola spending 4 hours with Maria. She told us quite interesting stories about the history of Barcelona, showed us interesting places to enjoy life and explained the cultural background of Catalona. She gave us the feeling to be a little part of Barcelona. Thank you for this tour Maria

4 stars Karen B. 10 May 2018

Maria was very informative. Our tour was to Montserrat. However, we were not informed of an additional charge for the driver and van until 3 days before the tour which seemed very high. Also the van had seats that faced backwards. This was not comfortable for members in the party.

Tour Guide Comment: Dear Karen, rate charged for van was the same as quoted March 15. Pls advise which additional charge you mean. Pls accept my apologies for the seats. Usually clients prefer to face each other on tours outside the city, but I understand it can be uncomfortable for some people. I will have in mind to always ask in the future or assure convertible van
