Date: Dec 22/19

Marcela organized a wonderful tour for our party of 11 people. Since we were a big group she took care of the transportation as well. She picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel and this made it very easy for us. The mini bus was very comfortable. Marcela did a fantastic job at taking us to the important parts of the city and explaining the history behind it. It was quite a challenge to please the big group but she managed to do so. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and our visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your kind words Sonita! The best reward for a guide is that the visitors enjoy the tour and that they take a fantastic remembrance of it back home. Nobody could get away from the explanations with the whispers I provided to you on ha ha... All the best, and happy new years'!

Tour: #578145, Tapas tour and Flamenco Show (4hs - Tour in the evening), Barcelona, Cataluña, Spain    view tour
Date: Nov 30/19

Negative reviews are hard to write. Overpriced and unprepared. I overtipped Marcela knowing in advance that my review will likely cause her economic hardship. My wife and I both feel that she does not come across as though she has a love of the food or the city. We have enjoyed food tours in other cities and have used guides across Europe. This tour was not worth the money. The Flamenco performance and venue were the highlight, but I could book that on my own.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your words. I am afraid I do not agree on your views. I feel passionate about my work, I have 9 years' experience. This tour includes gastronomy and a visit to the Old Town. I carefully selected the restaurants and made the reservations. No other guest has complained about them, in fact they are considered to be great!. I have explained the origin and ingredients of the different dishes. Out of the many Flamenco places, I chose the best one and got the best seats next to the stage for you.

We highly recommend Marcela and the Montserrat tour while in Barcelona. The history is fascinating, the vistas magnificent and Marcelas knowledge of the area is extensive. It is well worth the drive to appreciate the beauty.

We actually had two tours with Marcela. Both were great but the tapas tour was excellent! We would never have found the restaurants hidden away and she found the best! Thank you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Liga! You have been great guests! I hope the cruiseship and Bridge seminars were most entertaining. Best wishes!! Marcela

Thank you, Marcela! I appreciate your flexibility in working with me on my schedule. Marcela knows her stuff! We spent 3 hours learning the history and landmarks in the Gothic area of Barcelona. I am left informed and enthused about this historical area. Marcela was helpful with other tips for my time in Barcelona. Thanks so much!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Melissa, my pleasure! A travel back in time in the old city is worth the 3hs visit. Wish you a marvellous stay in our city as well as a great PAELLA in that famous restaurant!! A big hug! Marcela

Our Sagrada Familia tour with Marcela was fabulous:) Marcela was able to cater to our interests. We learned so much about the history , construction timeline, designers and also all the symbology and hidden esoteric knowledge behind the designs and facts you don't normally read about in books. It was truly a unique experience ! There is so much more than meets the eye:) Marcela did a really great job; she surpassed our expectations :)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Mercedes for your nice words! I am so glad you are happy with the tour. I appreciate the deep interest you have shown in this Gaudinian masterpiece, you have also been delightful visitors! I wish you a fantastic time in your cruise. See you in 2026!

Ok, this was an awesome insider experience. If you have a chance to book with Marcella, you should jump at booking with her. She is knowledgable, funny and a true pleasure to be around. We all learned so much and the tour with her was certainly a highlight of our trip to Barcelona.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ohhh great words in the review, I am so thankful for them! I also had a wonderful time with all of you, I hope this experience will remain in your best remembrance of the tours taken in this city. I wish all the best to the recently engaged couple, I am sure they are a treasure trove in gastronomy! And of course a big hug for your mum and YOU! Marcela

This was a very good tour, informative and fun! The suggestion I have is not to "demand" too many Tapas stops as this can make things feel a bit rushed. I understand most people want to "get what I paid for" but sometimes less is more - especially if your are enjoying yourselves - there doesn't seem to be the "necessity to make as many stops. Other than this, I HIGHLY reccommend this delightful tour with this delightful guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Gregory! I am glad about the review and above all about your suggestion, which is the very right one. I hope you have enjoyed your cruise, and that next time you will take another tour with your many kids even if it rains again, it wasn't all that bad after all ha ha... It has been a very pleasant evening with you both here in BCN- My best wishes for you and your new flats!

I had Marcela as my guide for two tours in Barcelona. She was awesome! Knowledgeable, courteous and helpful. As a single woman on her own in a strange city, she made me feel welcome and showed me the sights. I highly recommend her as your guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to you again! My pleasure! That is exactly my goal: to make visitors feel welcome in this city! I am so grateful for having given the possibility to tour you as I am a new guide in TBL. Best regards, Marcela

We had such a lovely day with Marcela showing us around Barcelona. She is very knowledgeable about the city and it's history. She showed us some Gaudi highlights and even made a slight change at our request to show us some Olympic spots. The highlight, however, was visiting inside the Sagrada Família. Marcela offered insight into the design and construction that made our visit so meaningful. Don't miss this experience with Marcela. Thank you for an amazing day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Allison, Thanks so much for your visit and especially for having chosen me for this tour, as I am one of the new guides in TBL. I am really glad you enjoyed the tour!, I must also say you and your family have been great guests who have shown a deep interest in the city and its highlights. Say hello to them and above all to the girls, My pleasure! All the best to you!
