Real / Local Barcelona Experience (BCN-Bourdainism)
I'm a citizen of the world that is now living in Barcelona for nearly 3 years. I love being able to show my home city to travelers, and give them a "local" experience (Anthony Bourdain style). I am a professional business person, but am also a professional musician, and also a former chef / mixologist. Beyond that I am a history / culture / travel nerd. As a person I am very friendly, considerate and in general a lot of fun. If I am showing you around Barcelona, I promise it will be an experience you will absolutely remember. There are few people who know the city as well as I do. Without a doubt, we will have fun and have a travellers experience, not a tourists. :)
Experience Barcelona (BCN) like a local Anthony Bourdain style! (Minimum of 2 people to book.)
Sure you can go and take a lot of tours around Barcelona, but when I am your host / tour guide I can promise you that you will always walk away with a unique experience that you will never forget. Also, my tours are suited to each group's desires.
My tours are centered around living and experiencing Barcelona like a local, similar to Anthony Bourdain (gastronomic / cultural / cosmopolitain).
The BCN local experience that I offer as a tour guide:
-Showing you the real Barcelona. Anyone can give you a "tourist" experience, but I focus on showing people a "travelers" experience from every perspective, and making sure your time in Barcelona is as easy, fun and enriching as possible.
-I used to work as a chef / mixologist, so I know all of the best bars / restaurants in the city.
-I'm a history / culture nerd, so taking you to any landmark / park of the city I will be able to tell you a number of details that will save you scanning Wikipedia.
-I'm totally happy being a personal professional photographer for you to make sure you get some quality shots to remember your experience.
-In terms of art / music I will be able to not only show you the more famous locations, but also the underground or up and coming galleries, clubs, and concerts.
-I know how to travel around the city better than most locals, and almost always without a map.
-It doesn't matter what your groups preferences are, I will always be able to have options for us to explore together.
-If shopping is more your thing, don't worry. It only depends on what you're hunting for. Barcelona is filled with obvious and hidden treasures.
