Tour by Maria Carmen

Official tour guide of Catalunya GT-3022

I was born in a little medieval village called Cardona (in the center of Catalunya) and I grew up surrounded by nature, fairy tale buildings and catalan traditions... that's why I became being passionate about art, history and culture.

I studied at the EHTB in Barcelona to perform what fills for me the most, being an experienced tourist guide, nowadays I am an official tour guide by the Generalitat de Catalunya, license number GT 3022.

After more than 4 years guiding in Catalunya, ​​I joined the Erasmus programme in the Italian Tuscany to gain more experience. I had the opportunity to immerse myself in the cradle of the Renaissance and saved a piece of its culture inside my heart.

I consider myself a fun person with lots of energy.

Some of my passions are travelling, cooking, dancing and roller skating along the sunny shore.

I created Cool Tours Barcelona, offering private tours. Cool Tours Barcelona was born to offer closer and experiential trips in Barcelona and Catalunya. Exclusive tours where apart from having a cultural experience, you will feel the vibe of Barcelona and its local people.

My main priority is that you enjoy the colorful art-noveau, hidden streets and secrets of the old town, delicious gastronomy, quarter's contrasts, ancient stores, curious traditions or if you prefer discover developing areas and not so well-known architecture.
