I am a dedicated professional tour guide with more than a decade of experience in the tourism industry. I am an avid traveler who has dedicated my life to seeing the world, seeking out new experiences, and learning from different cultures. I hold two degrees – a Masters in French Literature from La Sorbonne University in Paris and also a degree in Languages and Socio-Cultural Studies. I began my work as a tour guide in Paris with a multi-national tourism company where I was quickly promoted to focusing on training other guides, in addition to providing my own tours. After six years in Paris, I fell in love with Barcelona during a summer trip to the city. I soon thereafter moved to Barcelona where I now call home – and where I started guiding with the goal of providing my guests the most exquisite, personalized and unforgettable tours.
