My Husband and I did a four hour private tour with Maria. We choose the Central/old Barcelona and Sagrada Familia. Maria was fantastic. Her English was perfect. Loved the history and stories she was able to tell us about every building. She even tolerated our 'dumb' questions I think another guide would have grown tired of. Really enjoyed the detailed history and stories we would not have heard or known had we not booked the tour. She also made good recommendations for our next few days.

I am glad you enjoyed your private tour with Mari discovering the old town and Sagrada Familia. She told me that you were a lovely couple. I just forwarded her the review and she was delighted. Thank you so much for writing it.

All the best,

Gorka

PD: There is no such a thing as a "dumb" question, just a will to learn :-).

We did the Old Town walking tour with Jessie and she was a delightful and friendly guide. Jessie made the tour interesting with all her historical facts and quirky little antidotes. Walking around this intriguing area deserved great stories and Jessie certainly gave us that and more. Jessie also added useful information for first time visitors to this beautiful city and answered all our questions, including where to buy shoes (as every lady wants to know). Thanks Jessie for introducing us to this amazing area.

It was a very informative tour of the Old City, Barcelona. Lowry was our guide, and we had fun learning about some historical sites around the old city.

Caution: Walking for two and a half hours is not for everyone, so please be aware of this and that you may leave before the end of the tour.

I recommend this tour group and will book another after one week. Have fun and enjoy the Barcelona sights and history.

We lucked out right from the start, by getting Anne Marie as our guide. She is knowledgeable, energetic, and helpful. The tour was interesting, with lots of "inside" information and local folklore. A real bargain.
