I can't imagine that there are many guides of Lidia Santiago's caliber. She has witnessed much of the building of Sagrata Familia since her childhood. Friendly personality and skilled with languages. Make her your first choice.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your comments! and please contact me when you come back!

We are a family of 6 with 9 year old twins, 11 year old and a 17 year old and our tour guide Lidia was great. She made sure to make sure we all understood and tried keeping the kids engaged by showing pictures on her iPad. It was a cold rainy day and she made the best of it. The next tour we take is the Gothic Tour and we look forward to better weather , but over all the Gaudi and Sagrada Familia Tour was great.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ana, Thanks a lot for you review! I already light a candle to Santa Rita for good weather ��

Lidia is an extremely well versed student of Gaudi. She knows her stuff. She was prompt, prepared and enthusiastic about presenting some of the most famous as well as the most famous, La Sagrada Familia, in Spain. She is a native of the city of Barcelona and will give you a good background into the history of the city as well. Very professional and enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jean! Thanks a lot for your review! I really enjoy the visit with you! please enjoy your stay in Barcelona!

To visit everything Gaudi was always on my bucket list and when we planed our trip to Barcelona a top priority. Lidia our lovely tour guide provied us with all the information and history and the 4 hours passed far too fast. She made the tour interesting and also related well to our teenage daughter. The highlight was the Sagrada Familia where we got in without standing in any que. Highly recomend Lidia, her english is perfect and she is great company.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Gabriela!! I really enjoy your company! See you soon!!

Lidia is a first rate tour guide in every way. Lidia's research is thorough and because she is such a good listener, she customizes her narrative to your needs. On our tour of Barcelona we were delighted to spend two days with this consummately professional guide. Lidia's presentation of Guide's masterpieces reflected the depth of her research into his life and architectural genius.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again!! please contact me when you come back!!

Lidia did a very nice job helping us explore the Gaudi sites in Barcelona. She is very pleasant to be with and is extremely knowledgable not only about Gaudi, but all aspects of Barcelona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lotfor your comment Jack!!!
Lidia is an outstanding guide who had comprehensive knowledge of Gaudi as well ability to relate this information in an interesting and enjoyable way. The day was packed with visits to all the sites I wanted to go to as well as Lidia suggesting visits to areas she understood I would appreciate.Lidia had such interesting facts and knowledge that there were people not on this tour trying to listen in and ask me questions! I highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for you review Annette, I also get a very good time with you, I hope to see you soon.

Spent 3 days with Lidia and she was excellent in every way.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot James, it was a pleasure to me meet you I hope you enjoy yor cruise and see you soon!
My time in Barcelona was short and I wanted to see specific things. Lidia tailored 3 separate itineraries for me and organized her schedule so that in 4 hours per day over 3 consecutive days I was shown all the major Modernist buildings in the city. Lidia has a vast knowledge and her passion for the history of her city is apparent in the way that she describes events that have occurred over the centuries. She is engaging and her sense of humour is infectious making for a delightful experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your comment Ron. For me, it was a pleasure to explore the city with you. I hope to see you again by Barcelona... in order to check the results of he big 11th September demostration we were ;-)
