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.

Tour description

Small groups only! 🙂🎨

Barcelona's old town has many hidden gems and preserved historic alleyways . While you will lose yourself in a historical and significant journey from Roman times to the Middle Ages , at the same time you will get to know the Barcelona of today and its traditions.
Our free tour reflects a unique style: Harmony of real history and significant legends. I give them my personal touch and vivid way of telling.
While I take the history and every corner very seriously, at the same time we will explore the real local culture and give you more ideas to plan your visit. This will be more than a guided walking tour :)
Our tour will start at the Barcelona Cathedral and over time traveling through the most moving narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter, it will end at 'El Born', which is the oldest but most fashionable part of the city.
Every minute is precious in our lives and especially when we are on vacation :)

So I hope you have an amazing time in this beautiful city where each part has different secrets to tell.

Do not miss it! :)

We were excited to take this tour and easily found the meeting spot. We also received an email confirming the tour the day before, but on the day no tour guide showed. We waited for 20 minutes and asked around. We emailed and messaged the tour guide and no response. Ended up using another company that was great.

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.
