Why a guided tour of Barcelona with a private guide?
“What to see in Barcelona”, this is probably the first questions that pops up when you choose Barcelona as your next destination. After reading thousands of blogs or guide books, the answer is: a lot.
This is where the private guide service begins.
We can advise you the most interesting visits and also we optimize the itineraries. That way you will see more than you imagine now. In fact, a two-hour tour, for example, through the Old Barcelona will give you the keys to understand the history of the city and also to explore it without getting lost. In addition, the valuable assistance of your private guide in Barcelona will give you ideas and tips for the rest of your stay.
Besides, no matter what your interest are, you will find your perfect spot. The Picasso Museum or La Sagrada Familia are the most visited monuments followed by the Gothic Quarter, Saint Mary of the Sea and the Boqueria Market. Finally, we also propose off-the-beaten-path tours to reveal an unusual and authentic Barcelona, such as the Torre Bellesguard or the Poblenou Quarter.

Expert insight and advice from our blog
A tailor-made tour?
Are you a Travel Agent?
Guide in Barcelona
My name’s is Anna, a Barcelona Private Tour guide and in 2012 I started Barcelonina. Thanks to many travelers like you, nowadays I am leading a small agency specialized in private tours.
With us you will discover the main Gaudí’s buildings (like the Sagrada Familia), the Gothic Area or the more-than-famous Ramblas.
Are you a Gourmet person? if yes, we can arrange for you a Tapas tour to explore the Raval area or a cooking class where you will learn how to cook local specialties (and amaze your friends back home!). Do you like biking? Just just let us know and we will plan the perfect biking tour of the city.
Gradually I selected a team of five-star guides. Mercedes has been with us since the beginning and over the years other guides like Lluis, Elena, Clara, Agnès, Mireia and Silvia have joined the club. Under what criterion? To have empathy, to be friendly, to have vast knowledge and to know how to transmit it are some of the conditions required to become a Barcelonina guide.
Your Barcelona guide
All our tours and activities are private and exclusive. They are planned to be done without rushing, allowing you to take your time to breath, to take pictures and to experience.
Forget about carrying a heavy guidebook or reading a map to navigate around the city. Just relax and follow your Barcelona guide. This is your moment.
Do you need ideas to visit Barcelona?
A private tour guide’s small agency can be a traveler’s best friend. When booking with us, you will have all our knowledge at your service.
Our back office manager Jordi will be glad help you to design your perfect stay in Barcelona, giving advice about the best restaurants or informing you about the best shows in town (just as a for instance).

This way your can relax – and that is what holidays are all about, isn’t it?
Do you want to discover Catalonia?
The vineyards of the Penedès region, the sinuous shapes of the Montserrat mountain as well as Dalí and his museum in Figueras and his house in Cadaqués are just a few examples of all that Catalonia has to offer. For a more exclusive, unusual and authentic experience, our tailor-made tours of Catalonia are ideal: a discovery of Cava in a 14th century Masia, a visit to an exhibition by Sean Scully in a Romanesque-style chapel and a lesson of wine painting are some of our ideas.

Would have missed many sights without Anna. Short cuts we never would have found on our own. Also loved her choices for small off the beaten track restaurants. Highly recommend.

Anna is an excellent tour guide! She clearly loves Barcelona, and shares her enthusiasm and knowledge with her clients.
My customers from South Africa told me that the next time they come, they want to hire Anna services again. They got delighted with her knowledge, how she puts accross the information and the flexibility to adapt to their own rythm. We will hire Barcelonina services again for sure!
