I work in Barcelona.

About me

As an American living in Barcelona, I revel in the history and architecture of this bustling city; I try to bring the past alive and evoke the era of the Romans, Goths, and Catalan-Aragonese princes and Castilian monarchs who ruled here. But Barcelona is rich in its contemporary offerings, too: from the hopping covered markets to tiny nooks where artisans work, from terraces that spill stunning views to tapas bars to holes in the wall where one can taste fantastic wines.

BARCELONA, EXPLORE EL BORN, BARCELONA’S BOHO NEIGHBORHOOD

September 2019

Had fun with Karla!

We met our local guide, Karla after we finished our tour of Familia Sagrada. We took a taxi to the El Born district and then started our walking tour. She showed us the area, talked about it, we took pictures and tried some local food and drink. She was very personable and fun, we had a great afternoon with her! I'd recommend doing this to anyone who wants to learn a bit more about Barcelona and walk to see the area.

BARCELONA, MUST SEE BARCELONA WITH A LOCAL

September 2019

Few days in Barcelona

Karla was excellent! This was my first time in Barcelona and we managed to cover a lot in one day. She was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and made me feel welcomed. I will definitely recommend Karla and City Unscripted to whoever wants a personalized experience in Barcelona.

BARCELONA, FAMILY DAY IN BARCELONA WITH A LOCAL

July 2019

Interesting tour with engaging host

We enjoyed a relaxing walk through the gothic quarter and a local park with Karla. The experience was excellent, kids enjoyed it and took away some of the stress of visiting a city with kids. Karla made some excellent suggestions of things to do and places to go, including a marvellous tapas restaurant.
