The Sagrada Familia is a sight not to be missed in any visit to Barcelona, period. And, to see this wonderful basilica without a guide as enthusiastic and knowledgeable about every conceivable detail of this project as Mar would be the same as losing the chance to truly understand not only the evolving structure but the key, talented and persistent people behind this project as well as the religious significance of the architecture. We highly recommend Mar and her guided tour of Sagrada Familia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, I am very happy to know that you had a great time with me in Barcelona visiting the inside of the Sagrada Familia basilica. I also enjoyed sharing my time with you! Thank you for all and I wish you a fantastic X-Mas holidays with your family and dog... Mar R

Mar is a super guide. She met us promptly at the ship and drove us to Montserrat one way and returned to the ship another way to give us a different view. Since Montserrat is a stop on a pilgrimage trail, it is meaningful that Mar has completed her own pilgrimage. She helped us enjoy the views with minimal walking and explained the meaning/importance of what we saw. She is friendly and easy to talk with. Highly recommend her as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, it's so nice to hear from you and to know that you enjoyed that morning with me in Montserrat. Thanks to both of you and I wish you a Happy X-Mas and also a fantastic 2019! Mar R
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Edward and thank you for the 5 star rating! I imagine that you had a wonderful time in Spain Say hello to your family and dogs.

Mar was an outstanding guide and Evo was a great driver. Mar was knowledgeable and engaging while she shared the history of both Barcelona, Antonio Gaudi and his work. No trip to Barcelona should ever miss the experience of Sagrada Familia, one of the most significant architectural works of all time!! Thank you Mar!!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Spero, family and friends, thanks a lot for the time we spent together. It was my pleausure to guide you and show the best of the Gaudi’s works. I hope that you had a good lunch with lots of wine & fun. I re- sent the review to the driver Ivo, and he was very happy to hear your comments. Best regards, Mar

Great knowledge of history and knows how to share in a fun way. She is able to flex how much time we spent in different areas. When we had a party of 9. The max tour size was for 7 or 8, but she was able to get a larger mini bus for our group. Accommodating and excellent. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Todd, I really appreciate your great words about me and all the services provided. Enjoy the rest of your holidays and say hello to your family, Mar R

Gerard LogueUnited States
Mar was one of the best guides we have ever had. We used Mar for 2 days of touring in Barcelona. She was very knowledgeable. There were 9 of us and we were only in Barcelona for a day and a half but she was able to put together a package to see most of the highlights. We did a panoramic tour along with walking tours. She was able to get us in the Sagrada Familia , Picasso museum and Park Guell plus so much more. If you are looking for a tour guide in Barcelona our group highly recommends her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gerard, Thank you so much for the great review! I enjoyed spending two mornings with you showing you my beautiful city, Gaudi's masterpieces and Picasso. Say hello to all and if you ever come back to Barcelona, let me know. Mar R

Mar was an excellent tour guide; she knows Barcelona inside and out an provided us with a lot of history and explanations. She was very pleasant and she also took us to see a couple of additional buildings from Gaudi that I really wanted to see. She was a delight and I would recommend her 110%. She made us love Barcelona!!

Mar shared so much interesting history about Montserrat. She really knew her way around so we were able to see and touch the Black Madonna&Child. She gave us enough time to enjoy the view, the architecture, the market and the gift shop.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much to all of you. I really appreciate your comments. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Virginia MuellerFlorissant, MO, United States
My sister-in-law and I were visiting Barcelona and we only had one day before we left for home. In searching the web we found "tours by locals" and we wanted to end our stay visiting the church and buildings of Gaudi. It was very short notice but after calling, Mar responded instantly with an email that she was available the next day. She was ABSOLUTELY SUPERB! She made the day a fabulous one from the history, explanations, and a stop for outstanding hot chocolate! Wonderful tour guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, I am so happy to hear so many good things from you... it is really a good way to end up this year and start the new one. The best for 2018!
