We met Gloria the first full day we were in Barcelona and she took us to all the sites we had requested beforehand. It was the best introduction to the city where neither of us had been...the historic places, and the places which are known for their artistic importance. Very knowlegeable, she taught us so much that we felt that we were a part of her diverse and wonderful city for the rest of our visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pamela, thanks very much for your great review. I enjoyed a lot taking you all around and I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed too. It was a pleasure to show you my hometown. All the best, Gloria

We had a great morning at Parc Guell with Gloria!!! I would highly recommend Gloria as her knowledge of Barcelona, and Catalonia and her Art History expertise are outstanding. She made sure we knew where to meet and how we would travel, ahead of time. We went in the back entrance to the Parc so we could walk down the hill instead of up. Her stories of the Parc's history and of Gaudi and Guell were interesting and fun. she was also able to give us insight into other attractions in and around Barcelona
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Randall, it was my pleasure to show you around Park Guell. Warm regards, Gloria

Gloria was fabulous. How can you wrong when you book with a history major? She met us at our hotel and we took the 2.5 hour walking tour thru old city.We had specific requests and she took us to these places and knew so many interesting facts. Just an excellent experience and Gloria made for many memories.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Betsy and Rus, thank you!! It's very gratifying for me as a guide to know that I've met your expectations. Thanks again for such a wonderful review!! All the best, Gloria

Gloria gave my wife and I a tour of the Familia Sagrada and Park Guell. The storytelling was terrific as we got an explanation of the history and genius behind Antonio Gaudi. I highly recommend Gloria for any Gaudi tour as she was able to take care of all our logistics (i.e., purchase our tickets in advance and avoided all the lines) and gave us an insightful and fun filled afternoon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow Steve, what a nice review, thank you very much!! It was such a pleasure to share the afternoon with you and your charming wife, Melissa. Enjoy the rest of your vacation, have fun!! Best, Gloria
an amazing morning at the Sagrada Familia. We can highly recommend Gloria.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was such a pleasure to introduce and show the Sagrada Familia to you and your charming family. Thanks for your review. Warm regards, Gloria
Gloria responded to all online questions and requests and was right on at the meeting time and place. She was cooperative, informative and understanding and deftly followed our pace, responding to all our questions. She did not hesitate to over-stay her time to accompany us on our tour of the Miro Foundation, where she showed exceptional skills in sharing her passion for this artist. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her and would not hesitate to re-use her services should we come back to Barcelona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Hassan, it was my pleasure to be your guide. I had a great time with you and your friends too. I enjoyed knowing all of you. All the best!

Gloria showed us so many incredible historic sites, markets,speciality shops, squares and places of interest that we would certainly have missed without her guidance. We happily hopped into taxis as she guided us around Barcelona and made suggestions about places we could visit on our own,. She is knowledgeable and fun to be with. We would certainly recommend her as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alison, Paul and you were so nice and fun too that it was a pleasure to stroll Old Town with you. Warm regards, Gloria

We had a great tour, and Gloria was fantastic. Very friendly, took some family pictures first, and explained far more than I can describe here, but included info on Gaudi, construction, timelines, sculptors, history,and we really enjoyed hearing about the features on the facades and their stories. I especially loved the part about Gaudi's use of parabolic and hyperbolic shapes, to create a surprisingly natural space inside, like entering a forest. Gloria was fun, and very friendly, and very knowledgeable
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Rick, I had a great time with you. It was so nice seeing a family traveling together. Regards to them all. All the best.

Gloria was fantastic. Her knowledge of the Cathedral brought everything to light and her delivery just perfect. I would recommend both the tour and Gloria to everyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to show you the Sagrada Familia. Have a great time and enjoy the concert tonight, it will be the ideal colophon to your visit to Barcelona. All the best. Gloria
