Florenta was the absolute best guide under terrible weather conditions (lots and lots of rain and wind). She was able to give us a great walking tour and was such a trooper to continue on with the tour. Can't wait to get back to Barcelona and get another tour with her in the sunshine!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Paula!! You deserve an award for the bravest traveller! I can't wait for you to be back!!

Florenta is an excellent guide for a tour to Montserrat. she suggested using the train to get to the monastery area and that was a good choice. She knows a lot of the history of the monastery area and she was so helpful. She insisted she take pictures of us and we were both glad she did. My wife and I highly recommend her as your guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!! It was a pleasure guiding you! We were so lucky the sun came out after we prayed in the church! ��
Tiffany M.United States
Florenta may be the best guide of all time. We were exhausted from weeks of busy traveling when we met her, and her lively spirit and love for guiding perked us right up. My daughter is extremely shy, and she absolutely adored Florenta. Thank you Florenta!! When we come back to your area we will be booking again
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Tiffany!! It was a pleasure knowing you and your family!! I will be waiting for you to come back!!!

Florenta's tour was the most enjoyable tour we did on this European trip. She is immensely knowledgeable and friendly, and her passion for what she does comes thru in her energy and love of Montserrat! Truly a joyous day with Florenta! Highly recommended!! Really good at engaging our two teenagers, as well, and involving them in the discussions!

Ronald (Ron) KitlasUnited States
Our tour to Montserrat with Florenta was very memorable. Florenta is very knowledgeable about Montserrat, Barcelona and the entire Catalonia Region. She is very focused on providing her clients with a tour experience they will remember. We learned a great deal about the Benedictine Monastery, the people and traditions of Catalonia. She even suggested a deviation to our tour start time so that we could experience the Montserrat Academy Boys Choir. We highly recommend this tour, as well as our guide!
Lorie AlemaniaUnited States
Felt like I had been picked up by an old friend showing me the City she loved . Florenta was knowledgeable not only about Montserrat but also the Catalan culture. Already planning our next visit !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Lorie!! I would love to be your guide for your next visit! Let me know if I can help with the planning!
Florenta was knowledgeable, personable, and fun to be with. Her English is better than a lot of native-born English speakers, and she imparts the information in a way that makes it memorable. We have had several guides from ToursByLocals during our stay in Spain - all have been very good, but Florenta was the best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Paul! It was a pleasure being your guide and sharing information and opinions! I hope I will visit your fantastic country soon!
Carol PelfreyUnited States
This was our second tour with Florenta. She is full of energy and excitement about what she does. Our tour was packed full of information about Montserrat, most of which we would not have know if we had gone on our own. Very enjoyable tour. Be sure to book Florenta for your Montserrat tour so you can gave the pleasure of meeting this lovely young lady.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Again, thank you, Carol!

Florenta is the best of the best. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of the history of Montserrat and used it to build a fascinating story of how the site evolved from a few hermits to the major institution that it is today. She organized our tour to maximize the possibility that we would be able to hear the Boys Choir sing at the end of the Sunday Mass--and her strategy worked! My husband and I loved her suggestion to take the funicular rather than driving all the way up.
Anderson TingleyUnited States
Florenta is GREAT! We had an amazing day with her touring Monserrat. She is so knowledgeable and clearly passionate for all things Barcelona/ Montserrat. She is friendly and outgoing. We have great memories of our day with her, and we learned so much. I would recommend Florenta to travelers of all ages, and especially to families with kids/young adults of any age.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review!! It was a pleasure spending the day with you and your family!!

Robert DingaUnited States
Florenta gave us a beautiful tour of Montserrat yesterday and we give her a 5 stars out of 5 stars rating. We loved our time with her and she took excellent care of us. She is a very professional guide and was friendly and kind and thought of our every comfort and need. She customized our tour so we could take in the Mass and the personal time with the Black Madonna and we got right up front for the Boy's Choir performance. We highly recommend Florenta. She is wonderful~~we have made a new friend!
Peter PenaUnited States
We had a great time touring Monserrate with Florenta, she was awesome.
Florenta is just the most gorgeous guide. We had a really lovely day driving out to Montserrat with her. She was informative, funny, kind and generous and made our day just perfect. She had my 15 year old daughter captivated and was so inclusive with her. The hike was amazing, I am not the fittest person and Florenta went at a pace that was suitable for me and the view at the end was breath taking. I wish we had booked more tours with her she is such a delight!
Sal PellaUnited States
Excellent guide, very flexible and knowledgeable.
David ToloUnited States
To summarize in 2 words - the best. In addition to being a guide during the tour Florenta is also a chauffeur, historian, photographer and friend. Thank you Florenta for a wonderful tour of Montserrat.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very, very much for the review!! I had a wonderful time myself, and I hope we could repeat one day!

Albert WeissbergYonkers, NY, United States
Florenta gave us an excellent tour of Monserrat. She picked us up at the port at the scheduled time. On the drive she pointed out historic sites and the history of the mountain. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We arrived at Mountserrat and took the cable car up to the village. We took a tour of the church and gave us the history of the church. After that we took the funicular to the top of the mountain. We took some fantastic pictures. Thank you Florenta
Sonya YonashUnited States
Florenta was our favorite tour guide while in Barcelona! She was the perfect combination of educative, humorous and sweet. Our drive to and from Montserrat were full of pleasant conversation and education. She was great with our 6-year-old: kind, patient and fun...he was utterly smitten. She braved the cable car with us (despite her fear of heights!), and was always willing to adapt the tour to our needs, likes and limitations. We LOVED Montserrat, and were so thankful we had Florenta to care for us!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the review!! The entire family was adorable! I hope one day we will meet again, and take the Cable Car to Montserrat, then you will see how much I love the ride now!
Ada LangUnited States
Florenta was great and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour, it would be a shame to come to Barcelona and not see Montserrat. It is a 45 min. drive outside of Barcelona so you would have to give yourself 4 hrs at least. Florenta is accommodating to your schedule and knows the history of the area. Thanks so much Florenta for a lovely day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!! It was a pleasure showing you Montserrat!
Mary WilliamsUnited States
Florenta provided a wealth of information during our wonderful time in beautiful Montserrat! She is warm, knowledgeable and made an already beautiful place PERFECT! I highly recommend tours with her, she will share such history and knowledge with you making the scenery come alive!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Mary!! What a great day we spent at Montserrat! It was a pleasure, and I hope we will repeat someday soon! Good luck with your adventures!
Camille LandryUnited States
We can't say enough wonderful things about our Montserrat tour with Florenta! Not only was she incredibly knowledgeable but she was very personable and friendly. She led us on a wonderful hike before touring the basilica and she was happy to take pictures of our group and offer any other suggestions/recommendations for the rest of our stay in Barcelona. Highly recommend her for any tours while in Barcelona!!
