Meet Maria Jesús
Maria Jesús introduces herself
My real name is Maria Jesús, but I often introduce mysself as Maria because it’s easier to remember. I’m a real Barcelona local from the Sant Andreu and Guinardó off the beaten path districts, but in love with the trendy Born area.
I studied History and Anthropology, and worked as a History and English teacher, before entering the tourism world guiding groups around Europe and working as a museum guide in Barcelona before passing my exam to become a licensed Catalonia tourguide, over ten years ago.
I’ve been many times to the South East of Asia, my favorite place to practice scuba diving. I also play the piano, which I have studied for 7 years.
What we love about her
She’s a great guide: entertaining, adaptable and knowledgeable, and being passionate about world cultures, she’s always able to make her guests connect with our land and make them feel at home.
That constant contact with people from other cultures is one of the reasons why she’s in love with her job: because it allows her not just to share her city proudly but to also meet new people and learn from them.
WITH US SINCE 2016
She speaks perfect English, some German although not enough to give tours in that language, and she is learning… Indonesian!
