My wife and I used Materia BCN (Maite) 2 years ago (see write up Conch33040) and enjoyed every minute of it. She is not only profesional and thorough, but totally knowledgable and very well connected. So this August we returned accompanied by our two daughters, son-in-law and granddaughter. We did a tailored combination of car and walking tour of one of the most beautiful and unique cities in the world. There is so much to see and do, all the "known" places and so many others that unless you in the hands of a great tour guide you will never see. Maite surpassed our expectations again this time. Materia BCN is definitely the way to go. Contract them for your Barcelona tour, you will be glad you did....!!!!

If you are looking for a guided tour in Barcelona, Spain don’t look any further. My wife and I visited Barcelona during November 2012. We found Maite, at Materia BCN, by chance on the web. A few e-mails and one phone call later we had decided Materia BCN was for us. They picked us up at the hotel promptly at 09:00 and the tour began. Let me say Maite, our guide, was a very personable, young professional and co-owner of Materia BCN. She holds several degrees and has been a guide at some of Barcelona’s main museums and historic places. She literally treated us as family. She was passionate about conveying to us the history and tradition of the places we visited. Don’t think it’s a “stuffy” tour, actually you can design your itinerary; let them do it for you, or a mix of both. I will not get into detail but I liked Barcelona before…now I love it! Maite, took us to a very, very local place for traditional Catalan cuisine…wow, incredible food and great price. Next day, we did a walking tour, which was just as good as the driven tour, and Maite took us to eat “tapas”… again, wow…!!! We plan returning to Barcelona and will be in Maite’s hands again. Their prices are unbeatable, check it out for yourself.

I hired a 3.5 hour walking tour in Materia BCN (www.materiabcn.com) and did not regret it. The tour was in Spanish, but they also do it in English. Firstly, our guide first gave an overview of the formation of Barcelona thru time, with excellent maps, that gave us a clear understanding of what we were about to see. Very knowledgeable, you could see she was not just repeating some script. It was not a free tour and I felt that the prize was really worthwhile, real value-for-money. When I return to Barcelona I will sure hire another different tour from these two very savvy and enthusiastic guides! Thanks!
