I`m Vick Fichtner,
Hello, and welcome to Barcelona!
My name is Vick Fichtner, and I`m the face and soul behind EXPERIENCE BARCELONA.
I was born in the South of Brazil, near Argentina and Uruguay, and it was visiting those two countries that I developed my passion for traveling.
After I graduated in Architecture and Urbanism, I decided to come to Barcelona to study a master`s degree in Photography, which has always been a big passion for me.
Being able to unite two of my biggest passions – travel and photography – was always a dream and that`s how Guiri Insider, my travel blog, was born: so I could document and share my experiences around the world. It didn`t take much until tourism became more and more important to me, and I started working as a tour guide, along with being a photographer specialised in architecture, real estate, travel, and food.
Having worked both as a professional photographer for Airbnb and a tour guide, I had the amazing opportunity to meet both travellers and hosts, and that gave me great knowledge and experience in understanding people`s needs and mastering the private concierge world. My passion for the Savoir-Vivre, enjoying life`s little pleasures and experiencing new things and places gave me the passion to start EXPERIENCE BARCELONA.
I decided to launch the EXPERIENCE BARCELONA travel guide based on the growing trend of unique experiences as a new way of traveling. What we do is to research, curate and offer special, bespoke premium experiences to travellers coming to Barcelona and surroundings. We offer only the most unique, authentic and original experiences, with the right amount of luxury and taste because we like the good things in life, and if you are here, so do you.
I like to treat every client as a friend, and I`m here to help you have the best holiday you can. If there is anything that you couldn`t find on the guide, don`t worry. Me and my team of dedicated tourism experts can design and create something just for you!
Also, don`t forget to check our calendar, updated weekly and published on our website so that our clients can have exclusive, insider access to all the most amazing activities happening during their stay. With EXPERIENCE BARCELONA, you won`t miss a thing!
I am glad to have you here and I hope you can have a great Experience in Barcelona!

Vick Rocks! My husband and I just took our first trip to Spain. Vick was our guide in Barcelona !! She was AMAZING! We never would have seen near as much if we would've been on our own. We loved her spirit, her enthusiasm, and her knowledge! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone who wants a fabulous experience. Much love to Vick!
A FUN TIME WILL BE HAD BY ALL WITH VICK! Vick was a tremendous host - knowledgable, funny and spirited! She took us to some amazing places for several delicious treats along the way. The local olive oil store La Chinata was definitely one of our favourites and something Vick tailors specially for her tours. Vick even chased away a pick pocket like she was a big sister of ours wanting to protect us! Vick spent an additional hour with us which we hope she enjoyed as much as we did! What a fun young woman! I highly recommend you choose Vick to lead your Experiences of Barcelona which includes many other interesting sights along the way!
I traveled to Barcelona alone and had only a short time to see the city and wanted an overview in a concise and photography oriented way! My research discovered VicK on a website of many independent guides. She being a photographer, I could see by her bio that her bright spirit came through! I requested a walking tour to give me the highlights of what and where I should spend my limited time! Perfecto! We moved quickly and finished with a glass of wine and a view of the city from a great location atop a hotel. I decided that the company was great and enjoyable so I hired her to guide me to Girona! It was great to walk the old walls of the city and share that unique experience. I would have found the Museum myself but not the walk on the walls or the ice cream from the world famous Rocambolesc restaurant in Girona. Delight and knowledgeable! Would gladly tour with her anywhere!
My wife and I were fortunate enough to be able to work directly with Vick to have a personalised private tour of Barcelona. Vick was able to put together the perfect tour taking into consideration our interests in history, architecture, photography and of course food and wine. We spent nearly six hours in complete and total awe, strolling, chatting with and learning from this amazing woman. Vick was able to provide us with her unique insights on not just every major building, landmark, and market, but also the people, foods and neighbourhoods of her beloved City. By the end our our tour we felt like we were having to say goodbye to a close friend, we didn't want it to end. Thank you so much Vick! We will never forget your tour, and we have the awesome pictures to remind us just how special you made our precious few hours in Barcelona.
Thoroughly enjoyable evening for our party of five (aged from teen to 40's). Vick's enthusiasm and knowledge at the earliest opportunity, as it's extremely unlikely that you would find many of these amazing places on your own. Vick recommended us great places and a restaurant that we liked so much that even if we were only there for a short stay we were so impressed that we went back the following day. Highly recommended.
Barcelona - culture at its best! Our first visit to this wonderful city and enhanced by signing up for a walking tour to see the sights and try some tapas with some Spanish wine / beer. We signed up with Victoria (Vick) who kindly came to our hotel rather than the normal meeting place. She took us for about 4 hours through the streets of various sections of the city and introduced us to places tourists would be unlikely to visit. She is very knowledgeable, has excellent English and a very delightful personality and though we we were tired after an early start from Dublin that morning, we were so glad to have signed up. We can thoroughly recommend Vick to others wishing to discover the local side of Barcelona through someone who knows the culture and the people intimately.
We had a customised trip with Experience Barcelona. Vick is a lovely and friendly guide! She took us around the city for a kickstart tour and it was so much fun we felt a bit sad when the tour ended. It was a great way to get insights and recommendations about Barcelona in a short time. We only had 3 days in Barcelona and we coulnd't have seen and done as much as we did if it wasn't for Vick's suggestions that made it so easy for us to do a lot! Thanks Vick, will definitely come back for more!
