Why should I hire a local licensed guide?
Well, that’s a very easy question to answer:
Mostly because you are hiring a professional, someone who has passed an exam given by the regional government, proving his/her knowledge of our art, history, culture, and traditions.
Every year we attend many different courses organized by the University of Barcelona, by some of the most important museums and sights, and of course by the two leading tour guides associations in Catalunya, Aguicat, and Apit. So you are hiring someone who has focused his studies and life on becoming a guide.
With a licensed guide, you’ll have Priority Access to the most important monuments and sights.
There’s no intermediary, so when you contact us on our webpage, we are the ones answering your emails, writing what you’re reading now, and leading the tours.
All our tours are only for your party; no one else will join your private city tour.
Sustainable & Responsible tourism
We care about our city and region, plus Barcelona is our home. We are active members of the Tour Guide’s associations that are working together with both local and regional administrations to get the best city for ourselves and our visitors. Begoña was for 2 years the President of the biggest tour guides association Aguicat.
The restaurants that we recommend and the ones we take you during your tour with us are always places where we have been before; this means we take you to the same ones we go ourselves, making sure that local businesses get promoted and rewarded for their passion for our gastronomy.
The same for souvenirs and shopping, we have many local businesses that we’ll offer you a variety of hand/locally made products.
If your group is bigger than 15 persons we’ll use audio guides. You’ll be able to hear your guide in crowded streets, or if we are on a narrow alley early in the morning, the neighbors will not be disturbed by a guide shouting out loud to be heard by everyone. Plus the audio guides will give you the freedom to take pictures while you are listening to the guide’s explanations. We charge an additional 2 euros per person to the price of the tour.
