We were eight adults -- a relatively large group -- which Susanna handled with grace, individual attention and excellent planning. WE saw much more of Barcelona, at a reasonable price, than would have been remotely possible on our own.

We were only in Barcelona for a few days, and our half day tour with Susanna allowed us to make the most of our short time there. In four hours she was able to lead us through many of the highlights of the city in an efficient but unhurried fashion, drawing our attention to major monuments and little details that we would otherwise have missed, and providing valuable context in the process. She is intelligent, personable and full of information, humour and charm. I was impressed at how she was able to quickly grasp the interests of our group of four, and tailor the tour accordingly, leaving us all satisfied and feeling that we had gotten a good feel for the city. This was time and money extremely well spent. Highly recommended! Thank you Susanna!

Susanna was great. Exactly like all of the reviews said. Four of did a 1/2 day tour of Barcelona. She was knowledgeable,pleasant, patient and funny. And, she has a ton of energy. You get the real sense that she loves what she does. The other good thing is, being a registered guide, she can jump the line at Sagrada Famillia. No hesitation at all to recommend Susanna.

I hired Susanna for a tour to Montserrat on one day and a half day excursion in Barcelona the next day. Of course we arrive at Barcelona and no luggage. Great. Our hotel helped a little and we at least had another day's worth of clothes. So on to Montserrat. Susanna was very consoling and was giving us ideas on what to do as soon as she heard about our luggage. She knew all the history with Montserrat and she blended in with our family quite easily. She even knew the right angles and best places to take your pictures. So after Monserrat and a great location for lunch we headed to .....the Mall, where come to find out Susanna is studying to be a personal shopper, too!
What luck!
Additionally, Susanna played with my daughter very nicely while I was taking pictures in Barcelona. Susanna helped plan our days and could do this on the fly. If something came up and we had to change the agenda she was very flexible and prepared!

Thank You so much on turning our lemons into lemonade! Way to go Susanna!

Paul & family, thank you so much for your review. This is something really special to me, because it proves that in case of troubles I can find the way to make you enjoy yourselves, no matter what the inconveniences are. It's great to know that your time touring was enjoyable, it also was for me. Your daughter is adorable, so well-behaved for her age...you're doing a good job! Becoming a personal shopper was another value I could offer to my tours, and it was perfect for that day. All my skills, passion and experience made the perfect lemonade recipe for you. I loved this wonderful comparison. Warmest regards!

Susanna Mendoza was the most wonderful walking tour guide in Barcelona, Spain! Her knowledge of infinite details of Barcelona was amazing. We visited all of Antoni Gaudi's buildings including the famous Familia de Segrada. She knew the smallest detail of each building. She is also an opera singer and will gladly sing for you! What a treat!
