Sandra is excellent! She led the two of us on a half day walking tour to give an overview of Barcelona, its history and highlights. Sandra is deeply knowledgeable and passionate about her city, and did a great job getting us oriented and excited to explore the city on our own the next several days. She provided context and depth that reflect a lifelong familiarity, not merely rote stories typical of guidebooks. It really was the perfect introduction to the city. Highly recommended.

I can not recommend Sonia more highly. We have never used a private guide before, but this was our first time traveling as a family to Europe (2 parents, 2 teenage sons) and we were feeling a little overwhelmed. A friend had recommended Sonia so at the very last minute we decided to indulge. Best decision ever! From the minute she met us at our hotel with a smile on her face and "whisper ear buds" for our ears (so that we could all hear her easily even in crowds) we knew we had made the right decision. Not only was Sonia incredibly knowledgeable about her city's history, both past and present, but she was also just a pleasure to be around. She was funny and friendly, and flexible - super helpful when you're traveling with teens. Sonia's 4 hour tour took us along the Passeig de Gracia, through Old Town and ultimately ended at Park Guell where she used her tour guide clout to get us in when other tourists might have been discouraged. We had such a great time with Sonia on our walking tour that we decided to hire her again for a food tour the next evening. Second best decision ever! Our evening was well researched, well thought out and ended with the most amazing bombas at Cala del Vermut -- followed by a spontaneous gelato palate cleanser on the walk home : ). Touring with Sonia truly made our vacation complete. I can't recommend her highly enough.

This was the first visit to Barcelona for my husband and myself. After doing research on things to do and places to visit I was feeling a little overwhelmed. A few days before we set to depart a client and I was talking about my trip and she just so happened to have visited and suggested to contact Sandra Benzal and Sonia Viver for private tours. This was the best decision ever!! Sandra took us on a private tour to Pere Ventura for a Cava tasting. The winery was outside of the city, so we were able to see the countryside of Barcelona as well as the mountains. The drive to the winery and learning about the culture of Spain from Sandra was an incredible experience. We were treated with first class service from the time of pick up to drop off. The next day we met Sonia and she took us to Old Town/Jewish Quarter, which she gave us such an in-depth history of Barcelona. She showed us places to eat, shop and the food market. We strolled past Passeig de Gracia to see different buildings of different architects in order to get to know the city’s history. Overall both tours were well worth it and would highly suggest it to any one visiting Barcelona. Both Sandra and Sonia can get tickets to any of the most visited places in Barcelona, such as Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila or Park Guell to name a few. Where else can you experience the city, sea, countryside and mountains all with a private tour.

What makes this tour so special is Sònia’s enthusiasm to show us her city. She is exuberant, knowledgable, friendly, candid, and fun. We have hired private guide tours all over the world, and this day was something special. From our first encounter till our farewell, we learned so much about Barcelona. And at the end, Sònia helped us map out the rest of our stay so we were prepared on our own for the next 3 days. I highly recommend hiring Sònia. It will be the highlight of your trip.

It was our first time in Barcelona and we were looking for an original and special tour. We found "A Guide in Barcelona" in TripAdvisor and wrote to them explaining our needs and preferences, after a few hours they sent us their proposals. As we are art and wine lovers, we decided to take the PICASSO & CAVA Tour. What a GREAT DECISION! This tour is a MUST DO in Barcelona. It is the perfect mix between art, history and CAVA. Our guide, Sandra, is a fun kind person, a very knowledgeable official guide of the city as well as a qualified sommelier. The experience was much more than what my friends and I were expecting: very clear explanations about the Borne neighborhood and the Picasso Museum, gorgeous cava Master Class in a really COZY place and an excellent value quality-service-price. It was so much fun, I cannot recommend this tour enough!
