MEET MARGA

Experienced, sweet and detail-oriented. She’s an expert in the city hidden gems.

Marga introduces herself

I was born and raised in Barcelona although I have also lived in other cosmopolitan cities around the world such as London, Berlin, San Francisco and Sydney.

My greatest passion will always be Barcelona and it is for this reason I became a tour guide in 1999.

I attained my degree in Tourism in 1995. At that time I already had a clear goal to become a guide in order to present my beautiful city to people from all over the world. I first worked as a guide in Gaudi’s famous masterpiece Casa Milà for 18 months, where I gained a deep knowledge of Gaudí’s work and experience in guiding people of other cultures.

Since then my tours have expanded to other areas such as exploring the art, history, literature and gastronomy of Barcelona and even the surrounding areas of the Catalonia region outside Barcelona. I have also guided secondary school study groups.

I love meeting people of all age groups and cultural persuasions.

What we love about her

Marga is a top-class guide with a deep connection to her culture and has always had a clear goal to share with the world the many wonders of Catalonia.

She is a gifted story teller and relays the history of her ancestors in an accessible and entertaining way along with a great sense of empathy and good humor, and she’s always ready to show you those hidden gems easy to miss on your own.

She’s absolutely lovely and a delight to be with. Plus with her, you will learn an incredible amount in only a few hours: she’s highly informative and knowledgeable, and she knows how to make you enjoy your time with her.

What customers say

This is why everyone raves about Marga:

Daniel C (Ramstein, Miesenbach, Germany)

She was extremely knowledgeable, but when she spoke about the sights and the history of the city, she made it fun and interesting immersing us into her stories. I have a 9 year old daughter and Marga went out of her way to teach her so she could understand. She also tailored our tour to our interests and timeline. If you want a passionate and brilliant tour guide, ask for Marga!

Anjikan (Wichita, Kansas, USA)

Like a hip guidebook come to life.

Debbie M (New York City, NY, USA)

Marga, our guide, was perfect – very engaging and knew how to entertain my troop! She knew her stuff but also captured my boys interest with snippets of Spanish history and life. My kids were very impressed and have since talked to friends about what they learned… which is a good measure of how much went in!

Julie S (Drummoyne, New South, Wales, Australia)

Traveling as a family of five, Marga made it interesting for us all, moving at just the right pace to give us adults the history and stories we wanted while not too long for the impatient teenagers.

Jennhaber (Washington DC, Columbia, USA)

Marga was a dream! She tailored the content, kept everyone interested & made sure I still got the level of local insight that I was hoping from a private guide. #ForeverMarga – she really was a great find!! Well worth the investment.

Richard P (San Diego, California, USA)

 She took us where we wanted to go, and pointed out places we would have missed on our own.

Jenlikesbeaches

Needless to say we were SUPER sad to leave Marga on our last day. No doubt we will be back in Barcelona one day – we would do another tour with her, maybe Gerona?!? Never enough time, but Marga made sure we got the most we could in three days.

Lhusseini (New York, USA)

 She provides you with information as if she’s telling the story for the first time.

Thughes (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA)

Marga transferred her love and knowledge of Barcelona to us. What an enjoyable way to experience the city. She delivered a personal tour of Barcelona by car and foot tailored to our preferences. Marga is knowledgeable and pleasant and passionate about her city.

Joy S

Marga was an excellent guide, both in mastery of content and how easy she is to be with.

Ajovani (Avon, Connecticut, USA)

Marga took me on a four hour tour of the Gaudi sites. She was exceptionally knowledgeable and sweet.
