Our family of six had a wonderful Gaudi tour with Mark! We booked only a few days in advance, not allowing much time for Mark to purchase our tickets, and create our itinerary, yet he worked his magic and was able to accommodate us. We traveled with our ten year old as well as a parent that has mobility issues. Mark was patient, and found the most convenient, and accessible ways for my mom to get around with her walker. He kept all of us engaged with many details, and wonders of Gaudi. Five Stars!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ronelle, Thank you for your review and your rating! Indeed, it was a pleasure to guide your family of six through the world of Gaudi. I was happy when I managed to secure the itinerary for you, albeit the booking was so close to the day of the tour. And… I learned a lot of new things interacting with you. You’ve got a wonderful family. All the best, Mark
