Who we are
Carlos Martínez Barcelona, 26 of September 1973
With a background in Business Studies and a Master’s in Financial Management from ESADE, he dedicates over 15 years of his professional career to the area of finance and management of companies dealing with distribution, chemicals, health care products and hospitality.
After this long period he decides to make a radical change in his professional career and moves towards entrepreneurship as his vital objective, embarking on projects as fascinating as ByYou Barcelona.
Married, with a son, Carlos enjoys sharing outings in nature and practicing winter sports with his family and friends. You may someday see him trying to climb a mountain on a BTT, but it’s more likely to find him enjoying good food enlivened with a delicious Pinot Noir.

WHAT MAKE US DIFFERENT
Beyond the conventional
The vast majority of companies that offer tours in Spain are specialized in conventional tours, in some cases offer what they call “tailor-made tour” which is based simply on asking the customer for some preferences without going to know in depth the real concerns, tastes and needs of the client.

In contrast to the other operators, ByYou Barcelona is a company specialized in the design and production of 100% tailored experiences.
We understand the importance in travel of knowing what to expect before you get to Spain. We really want to know you!!!
