Lawrence FlorescaUnited States
Anna was amazing. She took us in through a private entrance (not the standard or group entrances) where we went through our own security line. Her tour was thorough, yet concise - not lingering overly long on any one piece, but giving us enough time and background to really appreciate the beauty of the Sagrada. Her descriptions really helped bring the history alive for us. We especially liked how she pointed out the more interesting exhibits in the museum portion.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lawrence, I am very grateful for your comments on the tour. My goal as a guide is to provide the customer with that much-needed balance between the most relevant information of the place, getting to the point, within its context and energize it with curious anecdotes and facts. If the result is positively valued by the customer like in your case, I feel more than satisfied.Happy to have made it. Kind regards, Anna.

We enjoyed our walking tour of Barcelona with Anna. She provided a great overview of the city and key highlights with special focus on the buildings designed by Gaudi. It was great being with a tour guide that could go to the front of the line at various attractions. We would not hesitate booking another tour with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Patrick, It was a pleasure to spend the morning with you visiting La Pedrera, Passeig de Gracia, the old town and Sagrada Familia...greetings to your wonderful wife Mary, brother and daughter. Anna
Doug McCreeUnited States
Our tour with Anna was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable and personable. It was hard to believe the 5 hours passed so quickly. In addition to the tour, she provided recommendations for areas to explore on our own. We would highly recommend using Anna while in Barcelona!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Doug, thank you for your review, I had a great time with you. It was a pleasure to be your guide. Happy New Year! and see you soon in Barcelona :) Anna
Neal SheetsUnited States
Anna was exceptional! Friendly, knowledgeable, empathetic, flexible and willing to go beyond expectations. We felt like there was nothing she would or could not accommodate on our behalf. We felt like we were with an old friend. Do not pass on an opportunity to experience any Barcelona tour with her. She loves and knows her city and is able to express the highlights so that you will also come away loving it too.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Neal and Peggy, thanks for your nice comments. It was a lovely afternoon and time flew by exploring the neighbourhood of Gracia. I also felt like being with nice friends in our free time and not like working. I hope you keep coming to Barcelona. Anna
Marcos CruzGallatin, TENNESSEE, United States
This is another must when it comes to visit Barcelona. There is no way that you appreciate and understand Barcelona's history and art without understanding its origin. It's a chance to have a 5 mile-long walking tour. It's amazing. Loved it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marcos, nothing better than strolling through the streets of the old town with people of excellent education and kindness like you, on a sunny autumn Sunday. Thank you very much and greetings to Mariela and Amelia. Anna.
Marcos CruzGallatin, TENNESSEE, United States
What a lovely tour guide. Classic example of a person that not only loves her country and its art, but also loves when you show interest of learning the Barcelona way.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marcos, thank you for your kind comments, I enjoyed very much touring through the Gaudi sites with all of you. I also appreciated your interest on going in depth to several aspects of the Catalan culture, language, politics, traditions and art. All the best, Anna.
Darlene Renee G.United States
Anna met us on time, was a wealth of knowledge and had great enthusiasm while we were with her. She took us to the best spots to view the Basilica, and took photos for us. She relayed that she grew up in Barcelona and watched the progression of this her entire life. Her English is beautiful. I would loved to have stayed in Barcelona longer to see more of it with her. The price of this tour was well worth it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Renee, thank you for your feed back and kind words, I had a great time with you. Enjoy the rest of your vacation. I hope we meet again in Barcelona. Kind regards, Anna
Tricia BuddUniversity Place, WA, United States
We felt instant rapport with Anna. She is warm, personable and enjoyable in addition to being an informative guide. Our tour of La Sagrada Familia began in the crypt where Fr. Jordie greeted me by name with outstretched arms wishing me a happy 25th wedding anniversary. My husband and Anna had secretly collaborated to provide me with the loveliest surprise gift ever; a special blessing of our marriage in the crypt as other tourists looked on. Anna went the extra mile to orchestrate this, she is amazing!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tricia, it was my pleasure to collaborate with your husband to provide the blessing of your marriage in the crypt of Sagrada Familia with Fr. Jordi. I have always thought that small details are those that allow relationships to last in time. I am very happy that everything went well and that was a very special moment, not only for you but for your son and myself! Thank you very much and I also hope that our paths will cross again in the future. Anna

Anna did a superb job of guiding us through Gaudi's Pedrera, Sagrada Familia, and Park Guell. Her knowledge and passion about these special works comes through.

We had two tours with Anna in Barcelona and they were awesome! She showed us all of the highlights at La Sagrada Familia and we had a lovely tapas tour in the evening throughout the Gothic Quarter. She was very flexible and accommodating with our needs. We enjoyed her company a lot and communication with her was very easy. She was extremely knowledgeable with many years of education in the tourism business. A true professional and we highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Renne for your kindness, it was great fun to share the Gaudi and tapas tour with you and your husband. That’s true we had such a good time, great laughs and a charming glass of sangria, tasty octopus, patatas bravas and pa amb tomaquet...I hope that you keep coming back to BCN! Anna.

Chairie SmithUnited States
I cannot say enough about Anna .... her tour guide skills were outstanding!! I am Buddhist and knew very little about the Christian practice but within a few hours Anna took me from 0-100. Additionally, we got off to a rough start...we were robbed in the Avis car rental, with the help of Anna everything was returned back to us within one day!!! If, that isn't enough, she answered all our unrelated questions!! With great appreciation and respect ...... Anna thank you so very much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chairie, Thank you very much for your kind words. It was a pleasure to help you recover your luggage and also provide useful information during your stay in Barcelona and Catalonia. I really enjoyed every second with your family and I hope to see you soon in Barcelona. Anna
Robert LindauerUnited States
I was completely satisfied with Anna and the tour. Prior to the day of the tour, she communicated very clearly by email, so we knew exactly what to expect. During the tour, Anna was friendly and considerate, a good communicator, thoroughly knowledgeable, and happy to share her knowledge with us. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, thank you very much for your comments! It has been a pleasure to me and I am happy to know you enjoyed the tour and also the orxata :). I hope we meet again in Barcelona. Kind regards, Anna

Excellente guide. Nous étions avec nos enfants et Anna s'est bien adaptée à eux. Elle était très préparée avec des supports visuels. Excellente connaissances tant sur l'architecture que sur l'histoire. Je vous la recommande fortement.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci Karinne. Je suis très heureuse de savoir que toi et ta merveilleuse famille avez passé une bonne journée à Barcelone. Ce fut pour moi un grand plaisir de vous montrer et expliquer en détail la Sagrada Familia et le Park Güell, et en même temps partager des informations sur nos pays: la situation politique ainsi que la linguistique et culturelle. A bientôt et merci pour tout, Anna.
Andrew DayUnited States
Anna did a great job showing us some of the many highlights of Barcelona. She was very personable, and had an in-depth knowledge of all of the sites we visited. I particularly liked her enthusiasm and professionalism. As a side note, Anna was also really good with my 11 year old twins. She was able to easily relate to them and make the history fun and interesting. She even suggesting a few alternatives based on their interests. Book Anna for a tour. You'll be very happy with your decision!

James CainSan Diego, CA, United States
Anna was knowledgeable about all things Gaudi. She arranged her tour so as to reveal ever more impressive Gaudi works in Park Guell, finally leading us to the Sagrada Familia, where we were all overwhelmed by the exterior, and equally awed by the interior, especially the effects of the stained glass windows in the late afternoon sun. She made sure we quickly got into all venues, skipping long lines, and focusing on key points of interest. An excellent guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jim, thank you very much for your comments, I am happy to know you enjoyed the tour as much as I did. The Park Guell and the Sagrada Familia are exceptional. Hoping to see you again in Barcelona. Warm regards. Anna

We booked a 4 hour private tour of La Sagrada Familia and the Park Guell with Anna P. What a lovely woman. She was so incredibly informed, cheerful and it was obvious that she loved her work.

We gladly give her 5 out of 5 stars and would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in the historical aspects and details of any exhibit. Great job, Anna! Bob and Eva

We highly recommend Anna, a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. With Anna we visited Monserrat and the Oller Del mas winery. Her commentary was rich in interesting facts and description.
