After having read a number of Marta's Forever Barcelona's Newsletters, our group of 8, grandparents, adult children and grandchildren, anxiously anticipated our first day in Barcelona and Spain. We had scheduled a half day van and walking tour. Begonia arrived promptly in a roomy and air conditioned van with driver. She covered many of the sites, Gothic Quarter, Barcelonneta, Mt.... More

We booked a half day Gaudi tour with Bego (Begona) for ourselves and our two teenage children. From the moment she arrived at our apartment, we knew we would enjoy her company and the experience, as Bego is the perfect guide - professional, informed, passionate and a very warm and genuine person. The fact that she referred to Gaudi as... More

Our guide Miriam gave us a fabulous tour of the city centre. The tour had the right mixture of history and hints on places to explore at a later date!

We booked a private Saints and Sinners Tour with Marta which involved an in depth tour of the incredible Sagrada Familia and an introduction to the Barcelona Tapas scene. Both elements of the tour were hugely enjoyable and the balance spot on. Marta is a quite superb guide and very pleasant company. Highly recommended.

Our 2 half day tours with Miriam at FovererBarcelona were fabulous. Miriam was challenged with 3 very tired kids aged 16, 13 & 6 but she remained engaging and informative throughout our tour and her personalised advice & knowledge imparted added value to our stay in Barcelona. We learnt so much more than we would have if we just toured... More

Marta's knowledge, charisma and enthusiasm about her city and it's wonderful treasures is impressive. She draws you in to her explanations and truly engages everyone on the tour.

We were a group of 7- extended family, ranging in age from 10 years to 66 years old. Begona was a wonderful guide. She was relaxed,... More
