Hello my guest!
My name is Ksenia
@bcn.stories
Im a slavic girl from Moscow.

I moved to Barcelona in 2012, to discover a new world and find myself.


My life change completely when I stopped working for big companies such as Fashion week and DMC to become a travel guide. Now I have an opportunity to share my passion about the city where I live and travel around.

For a lot of people Barcelona is just a busy city of many touristic attractions. I wanna show you that it is a great place to live, work and travel, with much more substance to it than you'd think at a first glance!

I originally thought that the experience was a little bit expensive, however at the end of the experience it was exceptional value for my money. Ksenia was an absolutely awesome guide, the information provided on the history of chocolate was fascinating and the progression of chocolate through spain was so much more than just eating chocolate. In fact due to the covid restrictions three of the four chocolate treats were takeaways and I only had the chocolate cake after supper tonight and it was delicious. I really enjoyed how I got a tour of the areas,the history of barcelona and the history of chocolate and the families involved in the evolution of chocolate. I strongly recommend this tour to anyone. Even during lock down restrictions. I was initially worried about a curtailed experience but if my experience was curtailed then the full experience must be out of this world! I really enjoyed spending the morning with Ksenia. Oh, and don't eat before you do the tour (I had not eaten breakfast and I had the left over churros for lunch and nearly considered skipping dinner and just having cake). Turns out that chocolate is really filling :)

Ksenia knows her stuff! You can easily tell she's is passionate about history in chocolate and Barcelona. She's organized and offers tid bits of information while walking between destinations. Hands down the best AirBnB experience!

Thank you for sharing your love and knowledge of Barcelona! Would have been great to have better weather to have a nicer walk between places but obviously that does not reflect on Knesia.

I’ve experienced tours in more than 30 countries and have traveled to even more. This experience was far and away the most enjoyable and comprehensive experience I’ve ever had. The amount of detail, the ability to field questions, the breadth of knowledge, the passion, and the commitment to satisfaction were all unparalleled. Not only a highly recommended experience, but so well done that I later purchased a private tour which was equally amazing and seemingly effortlessly personalized. Ksenia has set the bar extremely high. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore with her!

This was a wonderful experience! Ksenia was an excellent host and communicated very much before our booking to make sure we felt comfortable. She was also very accommodating when we had to bring my two small children (a baby and toddler) and easily adapted to our needs. I felt very comfortable on our tour and Ksenia answered all of our questions with patience and passion. She is very knowledgeable about Spain and chocolate and we learned a lot! We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who loves chocolate and wants to learn more about Barcelona.
