“3 Great Tours”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We loved our tours with Therese. Scheduled three 1/2 day tours and got three very different looks at the city. The Modernist Barcelona had fewer sites because of the distance between them but the walking tour of the Gothic quarter was fabulous. Therese gave us a great mix of history, culture and fun anecdotes while also tailoring the tour to our own interests. The tapas tour was a great way to cap off our three days. Different tapas restaurants with different types of tapas was a great way for our whole family (including our daughter who has been studying in Barcelona) to enjoy a side of the city we wouldn't have seen. She even helped us with dinner reservations at a Catalan restaurant I'm sure we'd never have found on our own. Very accommodating and a pleasure to spend time with.

“Best Guides in Barcelona, Spain!!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

My family and I traveled for the first time to Barcelona and had a wonderful time, due in part to the terrific guides at Hi.This is Barcelona tours......we had a Half Day tour with Nancy that was great as she was very helpful in taking us through the city and made it a true learning experience for my daughter who is 17 and my son who is 12, our family enjoyed learning about the history and culture of Barcelona with Nancy and sampling the local foods, my son loved the Churros!! Our second tour was with Cristina on a Full Day in Montserrat, beautiful views and Cristina made the day a perfect walk through history and time, we all learned so much about the Catholic religious history and its impact on the people of Barcelona, my daughter was impressed so much by Cristina's knowledge of art history since this is also a interest of hers in school. THANK YOU ALL @ HI.This is Barcelona!!!! Nancy Snipes and Family

“fabulous”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

originally suggested by the person we rented our airbnb apartment from, "hi, this is...." was just glorious. we had teresa as a guide. she was/is smart, funny, charming articulate and knowledgeable. we did a half day walking tour of the raval, barri gottica, ribera and then finished in barcelonetta at a fun place for lunch. we liked her so much we got in touch with sam to arrange for a day tour north (in a car) a day later.

i'd strongly recommend having at least one of these tours, especially if you haven't been to the city before. while they are most assuredly not inexpensive, both teresa and sam (samantha) who runs the show in the office, couldn't have been nicer or more professional. each had a huge impact on our overall enjoyment of the area.

“Old City Walk”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Spent a couple of hours in the old city with Mirjam on a walking tour with my son. The tour was very informative and we learned a great deal about the city from its humble beginnings as Barcino until the modern day. Mirijam was very knowledgeable and took us on a great route showing us nooks and crannies we would not have otherwise seen. All in all it was a delightful few hours spent with a knowledgable guide which culminated with a superb tapas lunch at a great restaurant in Barceloneta. All in all a worthwhile experience.

“What´s the word for "beyond incredible?" That is "This is Barcelona"”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

I cannot imagine having enjoyed more, let alone survived, my family´s recent trip to Barcelona without Jordan and his incredible staff, especially Sam. From the first email to the last, their professionalism, friendliness and attention to detail impressed us all. There was NOTHING they couldn´t do for us. And we tried hard to find something! They rose to every challenge and resolved every special (of which we had several) request with alacrity and success, including finding the one store we needed for special food, shopping there for us, meeting our rental flat landlord and filling our fridge with groceries before we arrived. Our guides, Cristina, Teresa, and intern-guideTereisa, and driver, Juan were fantastic. Tours were tailored to what we wanted to see, not just what they wanted to show us. They were flexible, knowledgable and just plain lovely. This is Barcelona is beyond incredible.
