Javier was always prompt and available and willing to modify the schedule based on our needs. We are two 60 year old women who are interested in different things. One is more food-related; the other is interested in architectural and culture. He did not overwhelm us with detailed information. He gave us great guidance in what restaurants to choose and... More

My family (4 adults and 4 college kids) arranged for a private guided tour in early August. Bego was our guide. We were picked up promptly and driven in air-conditioned comfort to all of the sights we wished to see. Bego was very knowledgeable and kept us moving at a very good pace - it was hot and while we...

This was my first time in Barcelona. I was with my daughter and grandson. We really wanted to get a good sense of Barcelona and felt a walking tour would give that to us. I found ForeverBarcelona and Marta - What a great find. We could not have asked for a better tour guide who was so knowledgeable, spoke beautiful... More

We found Forever Barcelona through TripAdvisor and wound up booking three half-day tours with them. We were on the final few days of an 8-day Silverseas cruise from Nice, France to Barcelona, Spain and were lucky enough to have Javier guide us for the entire, amazing, memorable experience! We decided to go with two half-day driving tours and a final... More

We took a half-day Gaudi chauffeured Tour with Javier and it was fantastic! Javier was so knowledgeable and he did a great job personalizing the tour for us based on our interests and questions. We learned so much more than we could have ever learned by reading a book or brochure. He brought Gaudi's brilliance to life for us, pointing... More

Given that there were 11 of us and I didn't book the tour until a couple weeks before, I wasn't sure how our day in Barcelona would be. We only had one day and 11 people!! Wow!

Without a doubt this has been the best tour that we have taken in a long time. We have been on many different tours in our travels and found this one to be very exciting and educational.

Mata shared her extensive knowledge of Gaudi with four Australians at Parc Guell and Sagrada Familia where Mata worked for many years.

Our guide (Montserrat) was knowledgeable, warm and personable. She took us on a personalized tour of Barcelona, focusing on (but not limited to) architecture. She tailored her tour to our interests as the day progressed, and answered our many questions skillfully. We had very limited time in Barcelona, and we would have missed out on so much without the background... More
