About the Owner:
Bcityng was created in 2020 by Maria Carmen Barrera, a licensed guide in love with her job, her city and Catalonia. She was born in a little medieval village with tones of history (in the center of Catalonia), called Cardona, in 1988. She grew up surrounded by nature, fairy tale buildings and catalan traditions, maybe that’s why she became being passionate about arts, history and culture.
To interpret Heritage and to be an experienced tourist guide she studied tourism studies in Barcelona city. During this stage, in 2016 she joined the Erasmus programme in the Italian Tuscany. She had the opportunity to learn how are the Tourist Offices Information working in other countries and could gain more experience in this wonderful and international industry.
When she finished her studies, she obtained the Accreditation of Official Guide by the catalan government, the Generalitat de Catalunya in the following languages: catalan, spanish, english and french .
She has been working for more than 8 years in the tourism industry: entertainer of tourist activities, tourist office front desk and hotel reception. She travelled around the whole world learning about every single country, learning from different cultures and that’s why today she knows your needs very well.
She considers herself a friendly person with lots of energy and some of her passions are travelling, cooking or dancing.
About the past of Bcityng:
Prior to this project, as a freelance tour guide, Maria Carmen owned a small tour company called Cool Tours Barcelona since 2014. In Cool Tours Barcelona we provided walking tours, bike tours, food and wine tours, bus and chauffeured tours in Barcelona and Catalonia.
We met wonderful people from all over the world, and we want to thank you because without you we would not have been able to grow.
After the stop of the Covid-19 crisis, in 2020, and in order to improve business, we are back stronger, with a new corporate image, new and modern website and more renewed than ever. So we can say today that Bcityng is Cool Tours Barcelona’s top project.

''We booked a bike tour on line for May 31st 2017 - its was one of the best things we did whilst visiting Barcelona - there were 7 of us in our party - 5 adults and 2 teenagers - the tour guide Maria was very enthusiastic and informative about the tour and made it really interesting - such a beautiful place - would definitely book it again."
''We would thoroughly recommend this tour of Barcelona. Our tour guide was fun and informative and spoke very good English. It was 4 hours and she took us to so many different areas of the city and told us so much. Barcelona is amazing and our guide too. Thank you so much''
''First off, La Sagrada Familia itself was absolutely beautiful and the tour was fantastic. Our guide was great, she was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and answered all of our questions. With her our experience was phenomenal. Just long enough. She took her time and explained all the spaces we visited and had great stories and inside information to bring the space to life. We really appreciate it''
''The best way to spend a day. The driver and the guide were on time in our hotel. The tour guide was very attentive and very knowledgeable, lovely. The tour was well organized and fun. The scenery you can see on your way to the top, where the Monastery is, is just too awesome. Our visit to Montserrat was the most memorable. If you go you will come out of the place feeling awed and renewed''
"Very nice way to start our trip in Barcelona. Very informative and interesting. We were 8 in our group and all of us learned so much about the origins of Barcelona, even our children learned and had fun. Our guide was fantastic and led us to some of the highlights of the old city. Definitely it was worth paying every penny"
