My name is Viggo Petersen and despite of my Danish and Andalusian background, I was born in Barcelona in 1980. I grew up in a little town with a lighthouse near the big city.
During my childhood I was a regional chess and tennis champion. But life brought me somewhere else.
I played the main role in a couple of Spanish movies, and after performing in some musicals, I was the lead singer of a few rock bands. I combined these activities with my education.
After trying studies on Politics and Philosophy, I ended up taking degrees on Tourism and Business. After some upgrades in Arts and History, in 2010 I became an officially licensed tour guide.
I spent my 20’s traveling around, living in countries such as Denmark, the UK, Germany and France. But I decided to become a tour guide and came back to Barcelona.
Finally I found my vocation, which is sharing my city with you in a pleasant, personal and intimate way.
