Mar was an outstanding guide and Evo was a great driver. Mar was knowledgeable and engaging while she shared the history of both Barcelona, Antonio Gaudi and his work. No trip to Barcelona should ever miss the experience of Sagrada Familia, one of the most significant architectural works of all time!! Thank you Mar!!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Spero, family and friends, thanks a lot for the time we spent together. It was my pleausure to guide you and show the best of the Gaudi’s works. I hope that you had a good lunch with lots of wine & fun. I re- sent the review to the driver Ivo, and he was very happy to hear your comments. Best regards, Mar

Great knowledge of history and knows how to share in a fun way. She is able to flex how much time we spent in different areas. When we had a party of 9. The max tour size was for 7 or 8, but she was able to get a larger mini bus for our group. Accommodating and excellent. Highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Todd, I really appreciate your great words about me and all the services provided. Enjoy the rest of your holidays and say hello to your family, Mar R

Tour: The Best of Barcelona in 2 days, Barcelona, Cataluña, Spain
Date: Aug 20/18

Mar was one of the best guides we have ever had. We used Mar for 2 days of touring in Barcelona. She was very knowledgeable. There were 9 of us and we were only in Barcelona for a day and a half but she was able to put together a package to see most of the highlights. We did a panoramic tour along with walking tours. She was able to get us in the Sagrada Familia , Picasso museum and Park Guell plus so much more. If you are looking for a tour guide in Barcelona our group highly recommends her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gerard, Thank you so much for the great review! I enjoyed spending two mornings with you showing you my beautiful city, Gaudi's masterpieces and Picasso. Say hello to all and if you ever come back to Barcelona, let me know. Mar R

Wonderful tour guide and extremely knowledgeable on the must see's of Barcelona. Coordinated a private car from the port to the hotel as well as from hotel to airport. This was a blessing since there was a 7 day taxi strike.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to show you Barcelona and I am really happy that you liked all the services provided. Thank you for the great review and enjoy the rest of the summer time...

Mar was an excellent tour guide; she knows Barcelona inside and out an provided us with a lot of history and explanations.

My sister-in-law and I were visiting Barcelona and we only had one day before we left for home. In searching the web we found "tours by locals" and we wanted to end our stay visiting the church and buildings of Gaudi. It was very short notice but after calling, Mar responded instantly with an email that she was available the next day. She was ABSOLUTELY SUPERB! She made the day a fabulous one from the history, explanations, and a stop for outstanding hot chocolate! Wonderful tour guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, I am so happy to hear so many good things from you... it is really a good way to end up this year and start the new one. The best for 2018!
