My name is Gemma Calveras.
I became Official Tourist Guide of Catalonia in 2003.
I am a tourist guide specialised in Girona and its province.
I like my job and I like my clients to enjoy the experience to the fullest.
Born in la Pobla de Lillet, in the Pyrenees.
I came to Girona in order to study at the university.
Girona is a town you will fall in love with. It means a lot to me: half of my life. I’ve lived here for 20 years and I hope there are many more!
At the University of Girona I graduated in Tourism and did an Erasmus in Liège, Belgium for 6 months.
I also studied the Degree in Tourism Management at the UdG.
I have travelled to several countries and done a Leonardo da Vinci in Britain, where I lived with an English family for 4 months.
I also lived in Germany for 5 months where I worked and studied at the same time.
I first worked as an accompanying guide for Catalonia, Spain, France, Switzerland, Germany, etc. Then little by little I devoted myself to becoming a local guide.
I have 12 years’ experiene as a local guide and it is what I like to do the most ♥

- course on tourism and socio-cultural activities
