We were very fortunate to have Lidia as our guide. She is from Barcelona and knows her city inside out. It was fascinating to see the Sagrada Familia again after ten years. Lidia has been guiding for over 20 years so understood where we left off 10 years ago and what had been done since. Her knowledge of Gaudi the man was vast. The second half of our tour took us through the old colonial part, and the market. We can highly recommend her. She's delightful.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mona, it was my pleasure to explore Barcelona and Sagrada Familia with you. I really enjoyed your company!!
Debra LeMaistreUnited States

Our final stop in Spain was Barcelona, and Lidia did not disappoint. She is a wonderful indidvidual, and we never would have known that ours was her second tour on a rainy Saturday. We covered a lot of territory in four hours, but did not feel rushed or pressured. Her knowledge of history, art, architecture and local culture were impressive. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her and would recommend her and TBL without reservation. A private tour in a crowded Barcelona proved to be invaluable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Reynold!! many thanks for such a wonderful review!! I’m happy you enjoy the tour, I also get a great time with you. Best wishes for you and Lynn, and please contact me if you come back to Barcelona ��

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the review Ryan ��
We can't thank Lidia enough for making our trip to Barcelona so incredibly enjoyable. We spent 2 amazing 1/2 day tours with Lidia and she was able to show us many of the major highlights of Barcelona. Our first day was truly the highlights of Gaudi and a great history lesson on Barcelona. She was very patient with our 14 year old son and took lots of time to answer our questions. Our 2nd day was tapas and old town. We saw so much more of Barcelona than we every could on our own. Gracies Lidia!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for such a lovely review andrea! it was my pleasure share the city with you!
Lynne H.United States
A fun and very informative tour. Lidia packed a lot into 4 hours but we never felt rushed. She also has a great sense of humor. My husband wanted to stop for coffee at the start of our tour. Lidia took us to a wonderful little shop and we indulged in the Xuxo pastry. So good. (We went back later for another one!) Her restaurant and museum recommendations were great and she showed us how to navigate the subway system. Thanks Lidia!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lynne!! Thanks a lot for your review. It was my pleasure to visit Barcelona with you and your family. I’m also very happy you took advantage of my recommendations and you repeated again “xuxo” experience. Please contact me if you come back. Regards, happy Christmas and Happy 2019!

Lidia provided my group of 18 people 2 outstanding tours. Both this one and the full day tour to Montserrat were completely better than we could ever have anticipated. Her knowledge, her patience, her personality, her animation and her additional suggestions made these adventures the highlights of our 2 1/2 week European tour. We would recommend her highly to others planning on a trip to Barcelona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks!! So happy that you got good memories about your stay in Catalonia!!
Wendi AbramsUnited States
Lidia is lovely, energetic and informative. We covered a lot of ground, and it gave us a great start in BCN. She was also quite aware of the fact that as we were staying in an apt, we would need coffee/snack right away, and paced everything appropriately. She also gave us good suggestions for restaurants and subway instruction.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Wendi for such a nice review!

John BeachUnited States
Lidia is great. In addition to her vast knowledge of history and politics, she can give you her perspective as a Barcelonian--and as a Catalonian-- living in these complex times. Take the tour and learn a LOT.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks!! I’m really happy that you learn about our history and get any clear idea about our political situation.
Michael HughesUnited States
We had a delightful tour with Lidia today. She gave a great walking tour introduction to the old city and then she took us to visit Sagrada Família. She is knowledgeable and friendly. Since we are staying for a few days, she also explained how the subway system worked. Her English is excellent. I would recommend her highly. We plan to use her again, when we come back for a longer visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot ��

Lidia provided a terrific tour of old Barcelona and La Sagrada Familia. Her lifelong residency in Barcelona gives her a unique and informative perspective. We highly recommend Lidia!
Gordon HeldUnited States
Lidia was on time, informative, considerate and made everything seem alive as we toured. We would happily tour with her again. I would have preferred to begin the tour earlier but she could not so I might hope for more flexibility in future tour timing.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Gordon, thanks a lot for your comments, I take note about it. Regards for you and Julia.
John BerryUnited States

Valerie M.United States
This tour is the only way to see all the highlights Barcelona has to offer in a limited about of time. Lidia was fantastic. Easy to work with, and adapt to our wishes. She was also able to accommodate not only my husbands and I love for walking around, but made it feasible for my 70 year old mother in law to manage the sites as well. Highly recommend Lidia to anyone wanting to see the highlights of Barcelona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot!! I really enjoy your company ❤️

It is rare to find a guide as well versed in history and culture than Lidia is. She not only knows how to present the tour, but her pacing and flexibility are outstanding. She makes everything appear effortless. This tour added such value to our short visit to Barcelona! Can't wait to return and have Lidia show us more!
