We booked a half day tour of the city with Marta and we are so pleased we did. Marta was friendly, informed and engaging. Her stories about Gaudi and the planning behind his buildings made it so much more interesting, and even the tour of the market was fascinating because of her insights. Marta adapted her approach to suit us,... More

Visiting a city for a weekend is great fun but to get the best from your trip you need to have someone, preferably a local person, to show you around. From the internet I found Forever Barcelona and booked a tour 3 months in advance - however due to an airline strike I had to move the day of the... More

Our family book a 4 day tour that encompassed the City of Barcelona, Montserrat and Figurines and Girona. It was exactly what I hoped it would be. Fun, interesting, informative and designed for our family. Our tour guide Monserrat was excellent. Her love of her country and her respect for its history and culture was evident in her plans for...

We are firm believers in private guides. On our recent trip to Spain we hired several. Forever Barcelona was by far the most expensive. While our guide was very nice she was just average. She was informative but did not go out of her way to make the tour come alive. When traveling from place to place by cab she... More

My family enjoyed very much our time in Barcelona - thanks to Marta! We met her for the 4 hour Old Town Gotic tour and then the following day for the Gaudi tour. It was fantastic! Marta is very nice, patient and attuned to the needs of the group/family. She leads the tour with great confidence and logical and engaging... More

Hi Ellen! Thank you for your review, it's great to hear from you! I loved being with your family, too. You were wonderful. It doesn't matter if I've been to all those sites thousands of times, or if I've explained the same stories a million times: what really makes every tour exciting is that every time my guests are different...

My husband and I did a 5 hour walking tour with Javier that was enjoyable every minute! Javier is extremely personable and engaging. He read us perfectly and explained things "just enough", noticing when we were reaching information overload. Javier also made some excellent restaurant suggestions (i.e, Costa Gallega). Javier is an excellent guide, who geniunely loves what he does,... More

Marta and Montse were excellent! Marta accomodated our last minute schedule change without missing a beat. Montse took us (group of 4 w/ 2 21& 22 yr olds) to the major sites in Barcelona and did a wonderful job with her deep knowledge of the city to keep us engaged. We also went to a great Tapas spot for lunch!... More

Last summer, my wife and I did a Med cruise for my 60th birthday. We were in Barcelona for a few days before embarkation, and my wife found this company. We booked three tours, one general Barcelona tour, a tapas tour, and a tour of Montserrat. This was no question, hands down, the highlight of our trip. My sister decided... More

We enjoyed a week in Barcelona and touring with Forever Barcelona with our two 15 year olds. We spend 1 day with Marta and 3 with Maria Teresa (Tessa to her friends). As someone else commented, seeing Barcelona and Monserrat with Tessa was like seeing these sights with a dear old friend. After spending three days together, we felt like... More
