Marta is the founder of Foreverbarcelona.com and has been a Barcelona private tourguide since 2000.
Marta’s love story with her profession started as a summer job when after traveling for a year after finishing college she was hired at the Sagrada Familia church (Gaudí’s Masterpiece), where she was trained to give tours for the special visitors (VIPs, press, etc.) amongst other responsibilities.
In 2000, encouraged by other guides she’d met, she passed the exams to become an Official Tourguide, and two years later she quit the Sagrada Familia to devote herself to touring full-time. She quickly discovered that private tours were her favorite way to show people around: she loves connecting with people, sharing her passion and making her guests fall in love with Barcelona.
Marta’s guiding style
Marta is as passionate about her job as much as she is in love with Barcelona… and she’ll make you feel that way, too!
After over 10 years giving tours, she’s still enthusiastic about her job (and people rave more and more about her tours!). She’s friendly, personable and fun, but also efficient and responsible.
Knowledgeable and informative, with her you’ll learn a lot… and enjoy doing it!
Her goal is to make you feel at home and understand your needs, so she can tweak the itinerary on the fly and give you what you want.
For all this, many of her guests won’t doubt to count her amongst the very best tour guides they’ve ever hired. You’ll be charmed by her delightful personality.
She’s an entrepreneur and runs her business and her tours with professionalism. She’s also a foodie, and she’ll be glad to share with you her favorite places to go eat.
She speaks fluent English and French, good Italian and can communicate in Russian (but she doesn’t offer tours in this language).
