Delight in the famous sights and savour the hidden corners

Discover your Barcelona

Customised tours with a qualified English guide

Forget the fusty tours full of facts you never wanted to know, I'll bring Barcelona's history to life for you and let you in on how the city's changing today. Create your own tour – touch on themes varying from the Roman founding of the city, to the secrets of the Gothic Quarter, the scars of the Civil War, the mind-blowing modernist architecture or the neighbourhood markets, or whatever else you’re interested in…

And why not stop off and taste the local flavour in one of the wine cellars or hidden watering holes other tourists cannot reach.

About Our Man in Barcelona

Hola, I’m Dan - ‘Our Man in Barcelona’ - qualified to be your tourist guide by the Official Tourist Board of Catalonia. I was born and grew up in England, but when I first came to Barcelona as an exchange student at the age of 13, I was hooked. Barcelona has been my home now since 2002. I speak fluent Spanish and Catalan and I have a degree in Hispanic Studies from Cardiff University. 

I know this city like the back of my hand, so let me share my knowledge and my passion for this wonderful place with you. As a native English-speaker I understand where you're coming from, and I also know where to take you to in Barcelona.

What Our Man in Barcelona's clients say

"My wife and I just returned from Barcelona and to say that Dan "made" our trip would be an understatement. 


"Dan was a terrific guide, but he was much more than that. (...) He added so much to our trip to Barcelona. For us, he was exactly what we needed to raise our experience several levels.

"So, in reading the other reviews for Dan (which are all glowing, 5 star reviews), I'm tempted to just say "Ditto" and leave it at that :)"
