Excellent tour with Vanessa! The Sagrada Familia is incredible on its own, but Vanessa brought the building to life with her stories of the history, Gaudi, the following artists and more. Highly recommend this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dennis, brother and daughter, Thank you so much for your review! Enjoy your stay in Barcelona! All the best! Vanessa

Our guide Vanessa, was lovely. She had a thorough knowledge of all the sites she took us to in Barcelona. Included in our tour were tickets to Gaudi's Holy Familia cathedral which meant we skipped the queues. Vanessa arrived promptly at our ship with a driver and a lovely modern van to accommodate our party of six. She was happy to answer any general knowledge questions and to satisfy our queries about the state of modern Barcelona. All I in all, a great half day tour with no hassles or problems. Thanks

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Julie, Thank you so much for your review! It was a pleasure to guide you through the city. Enjoy your cruise. I hope to meet you again in Barcelona very soon! All the best! Vanessa

Wow! We had a wonderful tour of the Sagrada Familia with Vanessa on October 21, 2019. Her English is perfect and she is very easy to understand. She packed the tour with interesting information and helped us understand much of the symbolism that is displayed. While we have visited the Sagrada Familia twice before this tour is vital to truly appreciating its wonder. We would defiantly use her again on future trips and we highly recommend her.

Absolutely one of the best tours I have ever been on. The care and concern for the tour group was obvious and we were very lucky to have Vanessa making sure we were okay and that the tour could accommodate mobility limitations. She was very aware of what was going on around the city and how to avoid traffic and other problems. Quite frankly she and the driver were so fabulous that I would without reservation recommend not only Vanessa but Toursbylocals with the highest confidence that this is the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karen, Thank you so much for your review. I liked meeting you in Barcelona the day of the general strike. Have a nice cruise and a nice stay in Barcelona! All the best! Vanessa

Vanessa did an amazing job touring my family around the Sagrada Família! Our group consisted of my husband, two boys ages 9 and 11 along with my mother. She did a great job of engaging all of us including the kids. She has a wealth of knowledge that she was able to share with us. Vanessa had the answers to all our questions. She is truly lovely! She even gave us a recommendation for lunch that was fabulous! I would give her a higher rating if I could. Thank you again Vanessa for a perfect tour!

Vanessa was the perfect guide for us. We were interested in seeing the Picasso & Miro museums and the food markets. She was excellent. What also impressed me was that when seeking a guide for the purpose of visiting the museums other Tours by Locals were so honest and accommodating in acknowledging their lack of expertise in that area and referring us to Vanessa.

Vanessa was excellent!! Our tour of the Sagrada Familia was one of the highlights during our time in Barcelona. We learned so much from her about the architecture - never would have appreciated the details without her as our guide! She also did a great job pacing the tour. I felt like we spent just the right amount of time outside/inside the church, as well as seeing the highlights of the museum.

2hrs with Vanessa was the highlight of our visit to Barcelona. No question went unanswered. In fact Vanessa was so thorough in her knowledge, both historical and the future, that the time just flew by and we were sad when it came to saying goodbye. Vanessa's enthusiasm was contagious and we will recommend that any of our friends who plan a trip to Barcelona MUST use Vanessa and your Company. Jane and Len - Toronto, Canada.

Vanessa's tour of Sagarda Familia can only be described as superb! She is very knowledgable about all aspects of this magnificent structure - its history, its symbolism and its future. Not only that, but she was attentive to our particular needs to 1) take pictures and 2) to sit for a bit as we are approaching 80. On a scale of 1 to 5, this was a 10! We recommend her highly.

Vanessa was a great tour guide! Her knowledge of the Picasso museum and the history of Barcelona is wonderful. She is very informative. We were with our two 20something "kids", who both enjoyed her tour just as much as my husband and I did. There wasn't a question she couldn't answer. After our museum tour, she took us on a walking tour of the gothic and born districts, which was really great. She also gave us some good restaurant recommendations. I would recommend Vanessa to travelers of all ages!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Annie and family! I had a great time with you in the Picasso Museum and walking around the Old Town. Kind regards! Vanessa
