Hello travelers! Welcome to Barcelona! My name is Maya and I'm a very passionate about history and stories behind it. I worked in giant cruise ships for many years just to discover the world and travelled to so many countries. After travelling different continents I worked as a back streets food tour guide and still working as a history and city guide to show unique cultures and spend joyful times with other wanderers. I look forward to give unlike perspective to the alleys we walk and different flavours to the stories we talk. I've been living in Barcelona for many years and this city is my love.

About the Tour

Small groups only ! 🙂🎨

The old town of Barcelona has many hidden gems and preserved historical alleys. While you will be lost in historical and meaningful journey starting from Roman era through the Middle Age, at the same time you will meet today's Barcelona and it's traditions.
Our walking tour reflects a unique style:  Harmony of the true history and significant legends. I give them my personal touch and lively way of telling.
While I'm taking history and every each corner very serious, at the same time we will be exploring the real local culture and give you more idea to plan your visit. This will be more than just a guided walking tour :)
Our tour will start from Barcelona Cathedral and with the time travelling through most soulful narrow streets of Gothic Quarter, will end 'El Born' which is the oldest yet most fashionable part of the city.
 
Every single minute is precious in our lifes and especially while we are on vacation :)
 

So I look forward for you to spend an amazing time in this beautiful city where every part has different secrets to tell.
 

Don't miss it ! :)

We had a great tour! Maya was very enthusiastic and keen to answer questions. She also gave us a list with recommendations about all different kinds of topics. The tour wasn't as full as other tours around us.

We wanted hidden gems and Maya delivered all the sites and passion we could have wished for. Her love of the city and the hidden gems definitely came through. It was a great way to start our time here in Barcelona now with so many recommendations for the rest of our stay.
