Sandra did a great job with our group. I especially appreciated her flexibility in dealing with a larger than normal group. She was able to take care of us very well. Our members were particularly impressed with her detailed knowledge of the history of Barcelona and Spain. We enjoyed both the gothic walking tour and the tour of the Sagrada Familia and other Gaudi buildings.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a great day with your group. It was a great pleasure to be with all of you. Thank you very much . Enjoy your trip in Spain!! All the best. Sandra

He English is excellent she keeps things moving. Provided us great insight into viewing key features we saw. She made access to each venue a breeze. We got to by-pass some long lines.

Gregory MersolUnited States
We highly recommend this tour. Sandra is a Barcelona native and was extremely knowledgeable about Gaudi and the history of his buildings and his contemporaries. Having a guide enables you to skip the lines at some attractions (yay!) and Sandra got us excellent arrangements at a busy time. One note: Some of the Gaudi attractions have high entrance fees. It's worth it, but budget 40 Euros or so per person if you see everything.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a great time showing You Barcelona. All the best. Sandra

Linda GreenwellUnited States
I highly recommend this tour with Sandra. She was very knowledgeable and very easy to understand. My husband and I had done the Gaudi sites on our own several years ago. We decided to use a guide this visit and it was so much better. Sandra pointed out details we would have not seen on our own and we felt like we understood the sites more. Sandra also recommended a great restaurant for lunch after our tour.
The tour was excellent. The guide (Sandra) showed to be an expert in Gaudí, she illustrated us a lot and also, she described many things that we could not appreciate by ourselves. Furthermore, she is very kind and efficient. It was a very good experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to be with you in Barcelona and show you the city . Fue un placer enseñarles Barcelona. Thank you so much, Sandra

Sandra, was a great guide. She was on time, friendly and knowledgeable about our tour. When we ran late (our fault) Sandra was able to change the tour and organise taxi to take us to our next stop to make up time. Sandra made our time in Barcelona really interesting as she told us places to eat, and visit as well. Sandra spoke English well and we were all able to understand what was happening and why. We will be recommending Sandra and Tours by Locals to friends and relatives when they travel.

Jonathan PearceUnited States
Sandra was great! She was super-informative and, once she found out I was a decent Spanish speaker, she also made me practice during the tour! Sandra clearly knew her stuff and was happy to help and answer any questions. I was, perhaps, a bit spoiled, as the tour had been booked as a "group," but ended up being only me. So, we had a very nice time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a great time showing you Barcelona. I enjoy speaking with you in spanish . me encanto hablar con usted en español Have fun today with the magical fountains Thank you, Sandra

John HuttonNew Zealand
As we booked with just three days notice, we were lucky to even have a guide, but well worth it! Sandra's knowledge of Gaudi was impressive, and her experience after 14 years guiding showed. We feel after the four hour "walking" tour, we have now "done Gaudi", but she also added her knowledge of Barcelona, and suggested other subsequent attractions. John and Heather, NZ.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to he your guide. Please enjoy today and Tomorrow of the other attractions. Thank you so much, Sandra

Boris G.United States
This tour was excellent. We even visited the towers in La Sagrada Familia which wasn't originally planned. Due to this the tour ran late and Sandra stayed with us until all points of interest were covered without skipping anything. She has a lot of knowledge and good command of English language. I would highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear mr. Gachpar and family, Ir was a pleasure to be your guide. I wish you a nice 2014. Regards, Sandra

Elizabeth FoxUnited States
I have had many guides never one that went 20 paces in front without turning back. Talking without paying attention to others. Talking to no one far ahead of us. We emailed 930 she confirmed and then showed up at 10 am. Not good at all with children. Annoying loud tone of voice. No regard for our thoughts. Talked as if reading a pamphlet. Very unenjoyable. Would have rathered no go. I wanted to go in sagrada tower but she didn't want to go.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Fox, I am very sorry that you didn´t enjoyed the tour. The tour was programm at 10 am according the Confirm booking (T.By l. will send you a copy ). The 9th of August was one of the days with more cruiseships in Barcelona : 7 and all the places were very crowdy. We visited sagrada Familia without queing and I tried to purchase tickets for the towers, not in the Programm, but there was no availability until 4hours later and as a courtesy wevisited a casa Batlló not in the programm without queing
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your tour with Sandra - we've reviewed the messages and don't see a confirmation of the time change. Tickets to the Sagrada Famille are often very difficult to arrange when the tour is such short notice. We've asked Sandra to be sure and let travelers know in advance when these tickets can't be arranged.
Patricia PalomboUnited States
Sandra provided us with an excellent introduction to the Gaudi architecture in Barcelona. She also differentiated his work from the other Moderniste architects. We highly recommend her and this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr and Mrs. Palombo, It was a pleasure to be your guide in Barcelona. I had a very nice time with you. All the best, Sandra
Sandra was great; very knowledgeable and great company! I would thoroughly recommend this type of tour if you are interested in learning more about Gaudi than you will pick up on more generic tours. I will certainly be using tours by locals in the future!
Susan EtraUnited States
Sandra was an excellent guide for the Gaudi walking tour through Barcelona. She was extremely knowledgeable with respect to Gaudi, and other artists and architects who built in Barcelona. Her insights as a "local" made the tour very special.
