Lydia was great. Our family of 5 loved our day in Barcelona with her. We had so many highlights and really learned a lot of the history and personality of the city and the Catalonian people. The kids are still talking about Sagrada Familia and the churros too. Thank you!

Dot HavardUnited States
Lydia is outstanding! You will not regret booking a tour with her. Our time with Lydia was the main highlight of our trip. We booked a trip with Lydia on our first day in Barcelona. Her tour gave us a wealth of knowledge about Barcelona and the Catalonia region. She provided us with a great foundation to make the remainder of our time in Barcelona very enjoyable. Please don't pass up the opportunity for a tour with Lydia. We plan to book her again in the future when we return to Barcelona!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dorothy, thank you very much for your great review! I am very happy for you and I am looking forward to meeting you again soon! Lydia

John StormsUnited States
Lydia was a delightful and extremely knowledgeable tour guide for our family's Barcelona tour. First, she knows everything there is to know about the history, culture, and every building, restaurant and bar. She customized the tour to fit our family's interests and knew exactly when and where to look to see any amazing bit of history. A true Catalan that you would be lucky as us to spend a few hours with. We loved touring with Lydia and plan to tour with her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr Storm for your very special comment. You have a very special family that I loved a lot. Hope to see you again someday, Hugs, Lydia
Linda R.United States
During our time in the Mediterranean we had several tours, both private and arranged through our cruise lines, thus allowing us to compare between our tours. While Lydia was very nice and knowledgeable, our tour felt more like a guided taxi tour than a private tour. There were no guided tours into any sites, no built-in lunch time and a limited, planned agenda for the day. Lydia did buy our tickets for the Segrada Familia, which was appreciated, but did not accompany us on the tour.
Sharon W.United States
Lydia is by far the best Tours by Locals guide we have ever had. She was truly an historian who shared so much information with us. And she was so thoughtful in accommodating our mobility issues and planning a very special birthday lunch for one of our group. She made us feel like family, and we would love to tour with her again one day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the comment. I hope to see you soon ...in 2026 ? �� Hugs and kisses, Lydia

Another wonderful day with Lydia. She is so knowledgable and is full of personality. We all became like family after 2 days. I would highly recommend her to any one wanting to learn and wanting to truly have a joyful experience while learning. She brought old and new Barcelona to life for the 6 of us in the group.

Rocco PlatiUnited States
We had a great day with Lydia! She was fun and knowledgeable and very professional. She allowed us to customize the day according to our interests and when a ferocious rain storm appeared we all stayed flexible and had a long delicious lunch at her favorite paella restaurant. She went out of her way to introduce us to the best of Barcelona. We hope to return to this amazing city someday and will definitely use her again.

Cynthia SchwartztrauberUnited States
I can't recommend Lydia enough! She was waiting for us at the exit from our ship on time! The beautiful Mercedes van with a/c was also waiting for us. We had a party of 8 so we needed a bigger vehicle. She had a microphone so we could all hear the details of beautiful Barcelona. She knows everything about the city and the area. Her knowledge of history is extensive and she has interesting details about every place we visited. Next time we come to Barcelona we will also request Lydia!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the lovely comments. It was a pleasure touring with you. Hugs and kisses Lydia
