Sara PodraskyUnited States
Gloria's informative tour of Roman & Medieval Barcelona took us throughout the old town, stopping at various points of architectural and historical interest. It was fascinating to learn about the founding of Barcelona, what it was like to live in Barcelona during medieval times, and what modifications had been made to the city as it grew. We also stopped at the villa that houses the Picasso Musuem, and learned about Picasso's early life. My family LOVED the tour - including my 15 and 17 year old boys!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sara and Tom, thank you so much for your great feedback! It was my pleasure meeting and touring with your wonderful family. Please forward my regards to your boys. Best, Gloria
Ron EpsteinUnited States
We greatly enjoyed our tour with Gloria. Not only was she tremendously knowledgeable, but she was also very engaging and friendly. We did with Gloria two tours: one around the gothic quarter quarters and in Picasso museum, and the other in park Guell and Sagrada Familia and enjoyed both. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ron, Thanks very much for your nice words. I had a great time with you and your lovely family! Best, Gloria

Michael AnzelUnited States
Gloria customized our tour of Roman and Medieval Barcelona to allow for stopping in small shops, finding some museums to go on our own, etc. This tour was a follow-up to previous days tour of Gaudi architecture. Both were excellent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Michael again, thank you for taking the time to review your tours with me. Best, Gloria
Malcolm HenkeUnited Kingdom
We were a family group of 10 ( including 3 children of 14 - 3 and 3 months !) and wanted to see and learn about the historic quarter of Barcelona. Gloria took us all around the medieval area and was very informative and fun. The kids weren't sure about whether they wanted to join us at first but by the end of the morning they all said how much they enjoyed the tour. We were also delighted Gloria managed to get us a table at the best Churros cafe in Barcelona ! Highly Recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Malcolm, thank you very much for your rating. It was my pleasure to show you all around Old Town. Congratulations, you have such a lovely family!! Happy New Year!!

Karen BernallUnited States
This was an excellent tour and Gloria was a knowledgeable and passionate guide. We were a group of four and we all enjoyed strolling the streets and learning about Barcelona's fascinating history. This was truly a highlight of our five night stay. Gloria left us with a great appreciation for the city as well as little tidbits of knowledge we never would have gotten by randomly reading the plaques on monuments. Thank you, Gloria!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karen, thanks so much for such a nice review!! I had a great time with the four of you too. Best, Gloria.
Stephen EisenbergUnited States
Gloria was wonderful. She showed us old town and the Roman ruins we would have never found on our own. Her knowledge of architecture and history was phenomenal. Most importantly, she was a pleasure to be with-very friendly. She made touring Barcelona so interesting. Gloria had just the right amount of information to convey about Barcelona to keep our attention without being mundane. A difficult skill to master. She made our day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was great to meet you and I enjoyed very much our day together. Thanks again for your kind comments. Best, Gloria

Mary A KolenUnited States
Gloria was very knowledgeable about the historical, architectural, political, and religious aspects of Barcelona and Catalonia. She did a great job of scheduling and confirming our appointment and was very prompt. I especially appreciated her flexibility and patience with trying to keep us on task and focused. We had eight women moving in different directions in very hot weather - she did an amazing job of gently "herding cats". I would highly recommend Gloria R. and Toursbylocals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mary, I am very grateful for your great review. I have certainly enjoyed being with you. You are all lovely "cats" and it was such a pleasure guiding you through the maze of street in Old Town. All the best, Gloria
