Having fun and good time is my priority and I can adapt myself to any wishes and requests.

A Recent Review of this guide

An outstanding 3 days of exploring Barcelona city and the Catalonian countryside. Lydia is an excellent guide and teacher who brought with her maps and historical documents to enhance the tour experience. She is also an excellent driver, a necessity for both Barcelona city streets and the back roads of Catalonia. If you want a great introduction to Barcelona and Catalonia, I highly recommend this tour.
