Barcelona Tour Guide - Christian H.

Christian H.

Spain

I left Germany 23 years ago and have been living in Barcelona for 12. I am an experienced world traveller having visited more than 40 countries on all continents. When coming to Barcelona I developed a passion for its architecture, the rich history & the many legends that can be found all over the city. Turning passion into a profession I became a tour guide and founded my own company specialising in off the beaten path tours and historic walking routes. We offer private tours. This way we can guarantee a high level of intimacy. For us it is important that there is also time for personal conversations. We love to learn about the lives of our guests. Our mission is fulfilled when you got the feeling that you discovered Barcelona with a friend who happened to know a lot about the city. Catch The Barcelona Feeling with me!

I am a dedicated professional tour guide with 16 years of experience in the tourism industry. I am an avid traveler who has dedicated my life to seeing the world, seeking out new experiences, and learning from different cultures. I hold two degrees – a Masters in French Literature from La Sorbonne University in Paris and also a degree in Languages and Socio-Cultural Studies. I began my work as a tour guide in Paris with a multi-national tourism company where I was quickly promoted to focusing on training other guides, in addition to providing my own tours. After six years in Paris, I fell in love with Barcelona during a summer trip to the city. I soon thereafter moved to Barcelona where I now call home – and where I started guiding with the goal of providing my guests the most exquisite, personalized and unforgettable tours possible. It is truly my passion to reach deeply into my knowledge of the art, culture, history and cuisine of Barcelona to give my guests a full understanding of Spanish culture from the unique perspective of a local.

I'm a highly passionate and enthusiastic tour guide from Barcelona, well-versed in both the city's mainstream attractions and its lesser-known gems. Overall, food, history, urbanism, and architecture are my passions, but they truly come alive when I can share them with you. I firmly believe that a guided tour isn't just about me and my knowledge. It's about striking a balance between delivering quality information, exchanging culture, and, most importantly, considering the diverse personalities of my clients. Above all, I prioritize listening to your interests and preferences, ensuring that our interaction is tailored to meet your needs. I also welcome the opportunity to learn from your experiences and stories, enriching our mutual understanding if you're open to it. At the end of the day, my challenge is to provide you with an experience offering a 360º view (clear but not overwhelming) of Barcelona, Catalonia, and Spain. I want you to feel that when you return home, you've experienced and embraced a piece of Spain and old Europe. During our time together, I strive to make learning about history and art enjoyable while igniting your curiosity to continue exploring beyond our tour. And, I can't forget something fundamental – I'm always ready to introduce you to the local cuisine. If you're someone who loves experiencing a country through its flavors, you're in for a delightful culinary journey! About my background: With a degree in Languages and Literature, coupled with prior experience in Marketing, I bring a diverse skill set to my tours. Drawing from this background, I specialize in crafting immersive, personalized narratives that delve into Barcelona's architecture, urbanism, arts, politics, and social dynamics. For me, the true magic happens when I can bridge the gap between the past and present through the lens of present-day Barcelona.

Barcelona Tour Guide - André O.

André O.

Spain

When I left my hometown Düsseldorf in 1999 to move to Barcelona, the Catalan capital was rather a polluted, shady and even dangerous industrial site than the trendy and cosmopolitan tourist destination it is nowadays. I came into town as a photographer and event manager and despite of Barcelona's guff post-industrial charm I was instantly overwhelmed by the creativity and passion of its people, their way of seeing things and to live their lives. With the time I got more and more attracted by tourism and achieved work experience as a property manager and travel consultor. Finally, I launched my own little travel consultancy in 2016 and since that I am offering luxury accommodations, DMC / concierge services and a wide range of day tours and group activities. My core business are private day tours from Barcelona to destinations like Girona, Tarragona, Sitges, Vic, Besalú or areas like Costa Brava, Penedés or Priorat. My mission is to leave the beaten path and to make my customers discover unique historical sites, beautiful landscapes, vibrant street life and amazing food and wine experiences. For the tour we use a comfy, private SUV that fits 4 passengers + driver / guide. The tours can be done in English, Spanish, French and German and they can generally be customised to meet the interests and needs of the group at any time. During the tour you get an idea of the long and diverse history of the sites, local traditions s.a. insights about lifestyle, culture and social concerns.

Barcelona thro local eyes

If you like culture, arts and gastronomy, Juliana is the guide for you! My wife and I spent 2 wonderful days exploring the different sides of Barcelona with Juliana - La sagrada familia, Gaudi (Modernism architecture) and the Gothic Quarters. Her knowledge of the city, its history brings you back to a time before what Barcelona is today. She allowed us an intimate peek into the gastronomy of the city when she hosted a private lunch by a local chef couple at their home near the Picasso museum. We are indeed privileged to be able to spend quality time knowing about the Catalan history and culture. Thank you Juliana for making us fall in love with Barcelona. Mucho gracias. Winston & Khin

Winston  H.

Winston, Thank you so much for your positive review. For me it was a huge pleasure to host you and Khin. You were amazing , warm guests and I am very happy to know that you truly enjoyed your experience with me in Barcelona. I really hope to see you again soon. Best wishes, Juliana

An introduction to Barcelona

I had a cruise that did not leave until the afternoon, but a flight that arrived very early in the morning. I wanted to use my time to see some of the architectural highlights are Barcelona, and to learn how to use the public transport system since I would have some extra time after the cruise. Silvana met me at the airport, introduced me to public transport options such as the Aerobus and the Metro, and gave me a personal tour of Gaudí's works including an in-depth one at the Sagrada Família. She also escorted me to the cruise ship. It was a fantastic tour and very useful for my explorations of Barcelona after my cruise.

Jeanne B.

Dear Jeanne, thank you for this nice review. It was so good sharing a tour and show you my city around. I am really glad that you enjoyed our time together and I hope you had a excellent time travelling around Europe. Best wishes, Silvana
