WHO ARE WE?

Marta Laurent is the founder of ForeverBarcelona. She got her tour guide license in 2000 and soon specialized in private tours for couples, families and groups of friends.

In 2005 she created her first website, and that’s how ForeverBarcelona was born. Little by little, she started getting more and more tour requests and in 2012 she started creating a team of hand-picked tour guides that are proud to collaborate with one of the top tour guide companies in Barcelona. That was the year she got her first Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence, after getting our first review in November 2011. Since them, we’ve received it every year and we’ve won other awards as well. You can see the full list here.

Every guest is different, so paying attention to detail is crucial to give each guest their perfect tour. We love adapting.

Excellence

Our goal is to provide an excellent service, from the first contact you make to the end of the tour. We strive to be the best.

Knowledge

We are here to pass on our knowledge to you, in a way that is informative but also fun and family-friendly.
