Florenta was an absolute pleasure to be with as our guide. We were very impressed by her knowledge of Barcelona, and its history. Her enthusiasm, energy and pleasant personality made the tour all the more enjoyable. Her English is excellent and we strongly recommend her.
Barcelona with Florenta it is just "something" - great, funny, very interesting and amazing. We have got fantastic picture of the city, history and people thanks to Florenta. Thank you so much. Halina and George
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for for the review! I hope you will be back on Saint George's day so you can celebrate with us!!

Our trip to Montserrat with Florent was our best tour in Spain. She is very knowledgeable as a tour guide, and is also very personable and enthusiastic, and truly does her best to make the tour the best experience for you. We all loved it, and would highly recommend Florenta as your guide in Barcelona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Dmitry!! It was a pleasure guiding you and your talented boys! See you next time for a great Fideua!

Florenta was the absolute best guide under terrible weather conditions (lots and lots of rain and wind). She was able to give us a great walking tour and was such a trooper to continue on with the tour. Can't wait to get back to Barcelona and get another tour with her in the sunshine!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Paula!! You deserve an award for the bravest traveller! I can't wait for you to be back!!

Florenta was a perfect guide. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and full of energy! We covered a lot to ground and she easily tailored the tour to our interests. We highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Jesus, for the beautiful words and for keeping up with Barcelona Fast Track! I will be waiting for you to come back to Barcelona!
Stanley WitkowUnited States
Wonderful. Completely personalized the tour for our needs. Incredibly knowledgeable, helpful in all respects, concerned for our well-being, and a huge amount of fun to be with. Lots of insights and historical info filtered through her lens as a young woman in a country with lots of contradictions. We couldn't have hoped for a better experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! It was such a memorable day! Have a great time on your Trip and enjoy life!
Michael LawrenceMacon, GA, United States
Florenta is an excellent guide for a tour to Montserrat. she suggested using the train to get to the monastery area and that was a good choice. She knows a lot of the history of the monastery area and she was so helpful. She insisted she take pictures of us and we were both glad she did. My wife and I highly recommend her as your guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!! It was a pleasure guiding you! We were so lucky the sun came out after we prayed in the church! ��
Howard RosenUnited States
Florenta is a delightfully charming and outstanding guide, who communicated clearly and precisely in flawless English about the culture, history, and architecture of Barcelona. We retained Florenta for a six hour walking tour. Florenta presented us with an incredible amount of information about the current and historical city with an emphasis on the architecture of Antoni Gaudi that we would not otherwise have obtained on our own. It was a true pleasure treat to have such an amazing and personable guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Howard and Norma! It was a great pleasure meeting you and showing you Barcelona! I love when I meet travellers which are curious about our local culture, and just take every information in! See you soon, I hope!
one of the best guides we have ever experienced - Florenta did what most guides fail to do - she gave a knowledgeable holistic presentation of the city that enabled us to appreciate its history and development and its people. She was unfailingly courteous to our needs, ensured that we had an enjoyable lunch and did not walk us to exhaustion ! Highly recommended for all day tours of the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Denis! It was such a great day showing you Barcelona!! Hope to see you again in 2026!
We loved our time with Florenta in Monserrat. She was very knowledgeable and fun. She shared lots of great history as well as provided great recommendations for our time in Barcelona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Theresa! It was a pleasure! Enjoy the rest of your trip!
Caroline MercerUnited States
Florenta is a delight! She is able to keep attention from vast audiences ~ our family of four has two adults and a 19- and a 16-year old daughters. Florenta is clearly knowledgeable and her sincerity and generosity is just infectious. We truly appreciated Florenta's excitement, and hope to be lucky enough to have her guide us again in the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the review!! I had a great time during our tour! With travelers like you it feels like I am showing my city to my friends!
Florenta was so great, we had no idea about what we wanted and she filled the day with many great sites, history and interest for our girls (14 &13). I can't wait until one of my friends tell me they are going to Barcelona and I can recommend Florenta! She kept our interest and enthusiasms for a 6 hour walking tour - that flew by - one of the best family experiences if our lives.
Tiffany M.United States
Florenta may be the best guide of all time. We were exhausted from weeks of busy traveling when we met her, and her lively spirit and love for guiding perked us right up. My daughter is extremely shy, and she absolutely adored Florenta. Thank you Florenta!! When we come back to your area we will be booking again
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Tiffany!! It was a pleasure knowing you and your family!! I will be waiting for you to come back!!!
Lisa MartinUnited States
Florenta's tour was the most enjoyable tour we did on this European trip. She is immensely knowledgeable and friendly, and her passion for what she does comes thru in her energy and love of Montserrat! Truly a joyous day with Florenta! Highly recommended!! Really good at engaging our two teenagers, as well, and involving them in the discussions!
Jim MurakamiUnited States
Fabulous. Very energetic, friendly, and knowledgeable. Easy to spend time with
Mary Lou EchoUnited States
Me and my family took the Best of Barcelona Full Day Tour with Florenta. She was delightful to be with. She was very knowledgeable about the history of Barcelona. She made the history come to life and made us want to hear more. Seeing the houses built by Gaudi and learning about them was interesting. Seeing the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar was a highlight for me. I would highly recommend this tour and if I could rate her higher than 5 stars I would. Mary Lou Echo
Charmaine SesinUnited States
Truly the BEST 2 DAYS IN BCN! Florenta was the last & final tour guide of our European adventure, and we must say, it was our unexpected SAVE THE BEST FOR LAST! She is highly sought out, so if you are doing your search, look no further! She is enthusiastic, personable, super-attentive, always looking out for us esp the kids. Day 1 was highlights of BCN, which my kids enjoyed hunting for dragons & unicorns. DAY 2 was the stunning Monserrat & paella at Can Laury, Sitges. Smart, great listener, LOVED her!!!
Donna SepeUnited States

Martin SanchezOakland, CALIFORNIA, United States
Excellent knowledge of her city expressed with pride. Constant care & concern for us as we walked the tour and after we completed it. Her English diction is completely clear and totally understandable. Recommend her without reservations. She also provided terrific "foodie" site's for us to try. Every one we tried was fantastic!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the review!! It was a pleasure showing you my city!!
Deborah ScottUnited States
We lucked out with Florenta. You can tell that she loves her work, and she genuinely wants to share her love of Barcelona, it's culture, it's history, and it's architecture with you. She might have the most in-depth knowledge of any guide I have ever toured with....I honestly can't think of one question I asked that she did not answer. She was extremely responsive via email prior to our trip and worked to customize the tour per our request.I would highly recommend her to our closest friends and family.
Ronald (Ron) KitlasUnited States
Our tour to Montserrat with Florenta was very memorable. Florenta is very knowledgeable about Montserrat, Barcelona and the entire Catalonia Region. She is very focused on providing her clients with a tour experience they will remember. We learned a great deal about the Benedictine Monastery, the people and traditions of Catalonia. She even suggested a deviation to our tour start time so that we could experience the Montserrat Academy Boys Choir. We highly recommend this tour, as well as our guide!
Deborah GabrielChino Hills, CA, United States
Florenta was a fabulous tour guide. I would highly recommend her. She is extremely knowledgeable, personable and was very aware of what our family wanted to see on the tour. Our experience was so fantastic with her that we hired her to take us on another tour of Barcelona the next day. A fabulous experience and we will definitely hire her again when we visit Barcelona in the future.
Nanette AllenUnited States
Our group of two, senior couples had a wonderful day visiting Barcelona and Montserrat with Florenta. She is an excellent guide who is very knowledgeable, fun, and adaptable. She tailored our tour to cover the places we most wanted to see and was extremely considerate of our needs throughout the day. This tour was by far the highlight of our six tours in Spain. We will certainly contact Florenta if we have the opportunity to revisit Barcelona in the future!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ohhh Nanette, what a pleasure it was to guide you! It was a fabulous day, where I realized how lucky I am to have travellers like you! Thank you for the review!!

Felt like I had been picked up by an old friend showing me the City she loved . Florenta was knowledgeable not only about Montserrat but also the Catalan culture. Already planning our next visit !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Lorie!! I would love to be your guide for your next visit! Let me know if I can help with the planning!
Florenta was knowledgeable, personable, and fun to be with. Her English is better than a lot of native-born English speakers, and she imparts the information in a way that makes it memorable. We have had several guides from ToursByLocals during our stay in Spain - all have been very good, but Florenta was the best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Paul! It was a pleasure being your guide and sharing information and opinions! I hope I will visit your fantastic country soon!
Carol PelfreyUnited States
This was our second tour with Florenta. She is full of energy and excitement about what she does. Our tour was packed full of information about Montserrat, most of which we would not have know if we had gone on our own. Very enjoyable tour. Be sure to book Florenta for your Montserrat tour so you can gave the pleasure of meeting this lovely young lady.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Again, thank you, Carol!
Anthony Mancarivero beach, FL, United States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Anthony!
Carol PelfreyUnited States
Outstanding guide. Very energetic and enthusiastic. We almost didn't book her because she is not from Barcelona. That would have been a terrible mistake. Florenta was very knowledgeable about the area. We liked her so much and did a second tour with her to Montserrat. Don't miss your chance to spend some time with this lovely young lady.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the review!! It was such a pleasure guiding you, in Barcelona and Montserrat! I might not be from Barcelona, but I definitely feel like a Barcelonian, and I absolutely love this country! My Catalan language is better than my native language!
Mimi FisherUnited States
We loved Florenta! She is incredibly well-informed about Montserrat and made the trip very special even though it was foggy and rainy. She was very friendly and attentive to our needs. Excellent guide!

Muchas Gracias Florenta! What an amazing day at Montserrat & Sitges We appreciate your warm hospitality, historic knowledge and boundless energy. We were given many options to customize the perfect tour for us. A mix of hiking, touring and a fabulous lunch. We would highly reccommend this tour to anyone who is visiting the Barcelona area.
Pat Morgenstern-ClarrenUnited States
Florenta is the best of the best. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of the history of Montserrat and used it to build a fascinating story of how the site evolved from a few hermits to the major institution that it is today. She organized our tour to maximize the possibility that we would be able to hear the Boys Choir sing at the end of the Sunday Mass--and her strategy worked! My husband and I loved her suggestion to take the funicular rather than driving all the way up.
Anderson TingleyUnited States
Florenta is GREAT! We had an amazing day with her touring Monserrat. She is so knowledgeable and clearly passionate for all things Barcelona/ Montserrat. She is friendly and outgoing. We have great memories of our day with her, and we learned so much. I would recommend Florenta to travelers of all ages, and especially to families with kids/young adults of any age.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review!! It was a pleasure spending the day with you and your family!!
Neil AronovUnited States
Florenta is knowledgeable, warm, friendly and very competent. We enjoyed every part of our time with her. When later my wife became ill, Florenta was there for us if we needed her help. I highly recommend this guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Neil!! It was a pleasure being you guide! I am really sorry for your wife being ill, I hope she wil get better soon!
Heather RutherfordUnited States
Florenta was AMAZING and I highly recommend her 'Best of Barcelona Full Day' tour. She is super warm, friendly, knowledgeable about the city, and we really enjoyed our day with her in Barcelona. Learned and saw so much, which was great because we really didn't have much time in Barcelona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Heather!! It is excellent that we could see so many highlights of Barcelona in such a short amount of time! I will wait for you to come back one day!
Pamela PanczykUnited States

Florenta was excellent and spoke fluent English. In spite of the rain, we had a very good tour of Guadi buildings and the Sagrada Familia. She told us what to look for on the inside of the building - down to noticing the "bugs" on the entrance door.. The restaurant for lunch was excellent. We highly recommend her and would use her services again on a different tour.
Timothy GriffinUnited States
My wife and I both agree that our guide, Florenta, was very professional, knowledgeable and just a complete pleasure for our tour, Best of Barcelona. Florenta provided great information and made it possible for us to visit the major highlights of Barcelona. Without a doubt would recommend Florenta for any visit to Barcelona.
Carmen ComiteUnited States
If I still owned my Company, I would hire her as my Sales Manager. I have traveled extensively on 5 continents and she is the BEST TOUR guide we have ever had. 5 stars is not high enough for Florenta.....Should be at least a ten. WHY?? ***** Her communication skills are outstanding...both before the trip was booked and during the actual tour***** She is extremely personable and always watching out for her "family"...am I walking to fast for you??....do you want to stop for a rest.. *****She is incredible

Robert DingaUnited States
Florenta gave us a beautiful tour of Montserrat yesterday and we give her a 5 stars out of 5 stars rating. We loved our time with her and she took excellent care of us. She is a very professional guide and was friendly and kind and thought of our every comfort and need. She customized our tour so we could take in the Mass and the personal time with the Black Madonna and we got right up front for the Boy's Choir performance. We highly recommend Florenta. She is wonderful~~we have made a new friend!
Holland McGuireUnited States
Such a fun day!! Florenta picked us up right at our apartment in Spain and from there we started on an educational and fun adventure. 1 hour drive from Barcelona and you are in the gorgeous mountains of Mountserrat. Florenta gave us a lot of history and insight before we arrived. Once there, it was beautiful and majestic. Florenta did an incredible job navigating and avoiding crowds while there. After, lunch in Sitges was the perfect end to the trip by the coast! Florenta was awesome!
Joshua LewisUnited States
Florenta was incredible. She walked with us around Barcelona and showed us the major sites and taught us about the amazing history of the city. Florenta was fantastic with our 10 year old daughter and she was able to show us great shopping spots and wonderful places to eat. Her knowledge of history and architecture were incredible. We would not have been able to see all of the sites and learn about the history of Barcelona without Florenta. She was awesome!!!
Peter PenaUnited States
We had a great time touring Monserrate with Florenta, she was awesome.
Maureen W.United States
Florenta is an outstanding guide. She is knowledgeable, flexible and a true pleasure to have her share Barcelona with us. We recommend her without hesitation for a delightful and highly informative experience.
Anita SeamanMount Vernon, WA, United States
Florenta was outstanding. She was extremely knowledgeable and she treated us like family very warm and welcoming. If I could give her 10 stars I would. I highly recommended her to anyone. The tour was extremely informative and her knowledge was way beyond what was expected. She made this tour amazing. I would definitely come back to do more with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so, so much, Anita and Matt! I had such a beautiful day with you in Tarragona, it really felt like I've met some old friends and I showed them the city! I hope one day we will meet again!
