About

Hola a todos! I am a professional Tour Guide from Barcelona and I have been leading tours around Spain and beyond for more than 15 years.

Formerly, a high school teacher, I hold a Master’s Degree in English and Spanish Studies and another one in Teacher Training and Education from the University of Barcelona. Foreign language teaching and learning have allowed me to travel, live abroad and connect with people around the world.

Being a passionate traveler myself, I decided to study Tourism and Event Management and I became a guide in 2004. I love helping others discover Spain’s rich heritage.

I am bilingual in Catalan and Spanish, and I am fluent in English, Italian and French. Besides languages, my passions are history, arts, current affairs, people and food. My mission is to show you around Barcelona and Catalonia through my local experience, sharing with you its history, legends, secrets and rich culture.
I cannot wait to share Barcelona with you!

    Definitely a MUST DO in Barcelona

    We wanted to organise an activity with our big family to celebrate my fathers’ 70th birthday. Given the pandemia and the mobility restrictions, we were looking for something virtual and we happen to find this super idea of virtual tours. I admit we had our doubts about video quality, connectivity or even about the entertainment of it.

    It was really worth it and Rafi is the best guide I’ve ever seen. Not only she showed us the beauties and secrets in the old town of this amazing city while guiding us through the 2 thousand history of it, but also she made us actually travel there and then. From the youngest to the oldest (25 people in 10 connections) we loved the tour and would definitely love to repeat it again. One last input: Even we, the locals of Barcelona enjoyed and rediscovered our city.

    Excelente. Es el segundo paseo que mis estudiantes y yo damos con Rafi y de nuevo hemos quedado encantados. Nos hemos conectado desde Indonesia, a una distancia geográfica enorme y, sin embargo, hemos vuelto a sentir que caminábamos realmente por Barcelona. El contenido de este tour es muy específico, la arquitectura de Gaudi, lo cual suponía un desafío, en este caso por la distancia cultural. Sin embargo, las explicaciones han sido en todo momento claras y amenas, los estudiantes han hecho preguntas y comentarios y han terminado la visita charlado con Rafi. Este tipo de paseos es un recurso educativo de primera calidad y Rafi es una gran comunicadora, así que lo recomiendo tanto para visitas privadas como para visitas académicas. Muchas gracias, Rafi. Nos vemos pronto :)

    The first time I took a tour with Rafi was in 2011. I was traveling with my middle school students and their parents. We toured Barcelona and Madrid at that time. Rafi is one of the most knowledgeable, friendliest tour guides I have ever known. She is very thorough with her explanations and encourages you to asks questions and learn more. I booked the architectural tour of the master Gaudí. Rafi points out to every detail of his work and his background. We absolutely loved it!! We will be booking another one!!

    Ha sido una experiencia genial. El itinerario combina arquitectura, urbanismo, arte e historia con pequeños detalles de la vida cotidiana. Rafi es muy clara y accesible en sus explicaciones, y transmite una sensación de cercanía y familiaridad que por momentos nos ha hecho olvidar que estábamos a miles de kilómetros de distancia. He hecho el tour con mis estudiantes de español de Jakarta, y puedo decir por ellos que están deseando volver a Barcelona. Así que, Rafi, mil gracias. Nos vemos pronto en otro paseo :)
