Lydia is an excellent guide. She was very knowledgable about the subject matter, in our case Girona and Besalú. In addition she provided us a brief but informative history lesson regarding Spain, Catalunya and Barcelona. She also provided us some information on the political climate in the area. Her efforts helped to make our entire visit to Barcelona a wonderful experience.

We had six days touring with Lydia, including this tour. It was an extraordinarily comprehensive experience of Barcelona and Catalunya. Lydia is a brilliant guide and a wonderful person. We became friends right away. She even started bringing us breakfast in the mornings. Lydia rearranged the itineraries between all our tours, removing overlap and adding extra surprises to fit us perfectly, so I am reviewing them all as one. She's just awesome. We're so glad to know her. Book a tour with her now!

Lydia was fantastic. From the very moment she picked us up at the hotel, she filled us with her knowledge of Spain, Catalonia, and their places in history. She was engaging and extremely personable. Lydia was knowledgeable about Girona and Besalu and their Jewish traditions both past and present. I highly recommend!

Lydia put together a fabulous tour that was geared directly to our interests. She was a wealth of knowledge on Spanish history and how it relates to present times. Our visit to Girona and Besalu were extremely interesting and I recommend these small towns to anybody looking for an escape from Barcelona. Lydia had much enthusiasm for Spain and presented both sides of the history relating to independence for Catalunya. We had an extremely enjoyable and educational day with Lydia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr Saphiro for your comment! I enjoyed each and every moment with you too. I hope we will meet again soon. (Happy that you found your hat too!) Hugs and kisses Lydia

Lydia is a terrific guide. She arrived right on time. She is a passionate person, warm and friendly. We took a Jewish history tour of Girona and Besalau. Lydia is an historian. She is incredibly knowledgeable. She taught us Catalonian history and it's Jewish history in great detail. We 2 couples recommend her enthusiastically!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the comment! It was my pleasure to tour with you ! I wish you all the best and hope to see you again! Lydia

We had such a wonderful day with this lady - she was knowledgeable, fun and easy to be with - my husbands interest usually gives out after 2-3 hours but she completely had his attention for the full 6.5 hours - he said he would book a tour with her again any time - thank you for a memorable day Lydia
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mrs Lewis for your comment ! It was a lovely day indeed . I hope to see you again someday :)
Laura M.United States
Lydia was prompt, helpful, extremely knowledgable about both Spanish and Catalan history and was able to help us see parts of the area we never would have found or understood on our own. As we were driving back she suggested a detour to a volcanic lake, enabling us to see parts of the area that weren't even mentioned on the tour. I have no problem recommending her enthusiastically.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you too ! I will cherish the moments with you <3

We have just returned from a day with Lydia. She arrived at our hotel precisely on schedule. Her vehicle was clean and modern. Refreshments were available in a cooler. Her tour was leisurely and complete. She knew her subject and spoke excellent English. We could not have asked for more!!! We were very pleased with her tour and could not rate her more highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr Bennett , I had a great day with you too ! Have a safe flight back home !

Lydia S. is an excellent tour guide. She picked us up at our hotel right on time and drove us to Girona. During the drive she gave us a very informative history lesson of the area. Even though it was raining, she came prepared with umbrellas and ponchos for us to wear and gave us a wonderful tour of Girona and the Costa Brava. She guided us through the Jewish Museum. She showed us all around Girona and accommodated people in our group with walking difficulties. Highly recommend Lydia S.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr Levy, give my love to the family
