A second tour with the vivacious and knowledgable Mata- this time a Gaudi tour rather that the tapas tour of our trip last year. Mata shared her extensive knowledge of Gaudi with four Australians at Parc Guell and Sagrada Familia where Mata worked for many years. Her enthusiasm and knowledge is wonderful - she has .an intimate knowledge of Gaudi... More

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

We met Marta on our last day in Barcelona. We had wished we had started our trip with Marta. Marta is a gem of a person. She was born and raised in Barcelona and her stories not only reflect her indepth knowledge and love for Barcelona but an appreciate for the past, present and future of Barcelona. I would highly...

Hi Sharon! Thank you for your review! Our chocolate tour was lots of fun, and I loved adapting the itinerary to introduce some other non-chocolate favorites of yours as well. Definitely fun! Next time you come, let me know and we'll plan some other amazing tour together! Enjoy the rest of what's left of the summer! Marta More

Through Forever Barcelona, we had a tremendous experience visiting the city. We enjoyed our Forever Barcelona tour thoroughly. It included all of the main things we would want to visit and so much more that only someone familiar with the city would be able to suggest. Forever Barcelona provided us with Martona, the absolutely best guide. We did not feel... More

Hi Joel! Thank you for sharing your experience with Martona! I'm so excited that she's getting her first awesome review after just joining our team! With two pregnant tour guides this year, I needed to add someone else to reinforce the team. I've known Martona for a while, and I was sure she'd be a great match to our team...... More

Our family of five had the pleasure of spending a half day with Miriam for a Gaudi tour. We were on a two week cruise of the Mediterranean and were in Barcelona for only one day. Barcelona was one of the highlights of our trip and we have Miriam to thank for that. She is enthusiastic, passionate, intelligent and absolutely... More

My wife and I were traveling with our granddaughter and included Barcelona among four cities in Spain, primarily to show her the Sagrada Familia but also the unique nature of Barcelona. We had been in Barcelona previously with a Tauck tour, but wanted to show our granddaughter the wonders of the genius Gaudi. Luckily, we were directed to Forever Barcelona... More

We had an excellent full day walking tour with Javier where he took us to many amazing sites that we would not normally be able to see on a regular group tour. Make sure you know beforehand what exactly you need to come prepared to pay for. We really did not know how much the admission fee for each attraction... More

We very much enjoyed our tour with Xavier. We selected the city tour that included a driver. This tour allowed us to get a quick overview of the gothic quarter and a brief stop for tapas (at our request). We then proceeded to Park Guell and Sagrada Familia.
