We did not know what to expect from this first visit to Barcelona with Tate. She made our day memorable and taught us so much about Barcelona. It is on our list to return to. If you think the Sagrada Familia is just another wonderful European church, you are mistaken. It is the most amazing architectural site I've ever seen. Tate is an expert and you should take advantage of her unique and extensive knowledge of this phenomenal site. My next tour in Barcelona will be dedicated to just that site with Tate.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Tom and family for recovering the nice memories of the October 24! I wish that you come back to have the in depth visit of the of Sagrada Família!!

Tate was so amazing and educational. We had a tremendous tour from start to finish and didn't want the tour to end.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Victor and Karen!! That’s true we had such a good time, great laughs and a charming glass of cava in the balcony of Montjuïc, above the city :-)

What a gem we discovered in Tate. Tate goes way beyond the call of duty to accommodate. She is warm, energetic and shares her knowledge in such a way that all can follow and enjoy. Her patience to cope with older ladies and a wheelchair speaks volumes of her character and warm personality - thank you Tate!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Maxi!! It was a great pleaure to meet you two! Truly we shared great moments :-)

Tate was great ! My sister and I had a wonderful experience in Barcelona. She was so accommodating to our likes and interest. We made a life long friend in Tate . We enjoyed her city so much more by Tate sharing her knowledge. We enjoyed the cathedral so much more with her wealth of knowledge. I purchased a beautiful book for my home, after finding out she had a part in the book. 10 stars if that was an option. Thank you TBL for another wonderful guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Joni! That was a great girls afternoon! And you are right, we became long life friends :-) i hope you come back sometime to have LOL!!
Ann NewmanUnited States
Tate is a wonderful guide. She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and flexible. We felt like we were visiting Barcelona with an old friend. Tate is truly an amazing guide and a lovely woman. My family and I look forward to exploring Spain with Tate on our next trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Then I am waiting for you to come back! I take tour word, I am your old friend in BCN :-) Ann, Scott, Nick, Jake and Mandy, it was a lovely morning!! Ann, you are a great woman!!
Pride ScanlanUnited States
Our 8 attendees were very impressed with Tate's knowledge and even more so with her sparkling personality and humor. What a fun and rewarding afternoon! She's an exceptional guide who listened to and read our group, adjusting her delivery and history details to fit us. Are there 6 STARS that we can give Tate?
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ohhh Pride, thankssss!!!! So, when did you say you are coming back????
Terri J.United States
We loved out tour with Tate. She was warm and welcoming and obviously passionate about the city. Her extensive knowledge greatly enhanced our visit and appreciation of Barcelona. We could have happily spent 4 more hour with her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I felt the same way, Terri!! You were a warm and charming group
Sandy BonahoomUnited States
BEST TOUR GUIDE EVER... Tate was exceptionally knowledgeable about history, geography, culture, current events and all things pertaining to Barcelona! She was fun to be with and was very accommodating. There were 7 of us and 2 languages to be considered and she was excellent! If we ever come back to Barcelona, we will absolutely be asking for Tate. We were also so pleased with our driver Pedro. They were both completely aware of our needs and were right there to help. An exceptional experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I have transmitted your gratefulness to Pedro and we are both so glad that you enjoyed! Specially because Barcelona was the last port of call of your european trip and you had to put a good colophon in it. Our tour has run nicely & smoothly because you are 2 lovely, openminded and easygoing families, it has been our pleasure to be with you :-)
Eryn Weber-ShifrinUnited States
Tate was the perfect guide for my family. Not only does she have much experience and endless knowledge about the places we saw and the current cultural and political climate in Barcelona, but there also wasn't a question we asked that she couldn't answer. She's a wonderful ambassador of this great city. In addition to being knowledgeable, she was flexible, responsive, and so easy to be with. She even took us around by foot for an extra hour to be sure we saw everything that interested us! She's terrific!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Eryn! I had a great time with you and your 4 boys :-) You are all so positive and active that you make it a pleasure to walk around with you. For me, as a mother of only daughters, to see the interaction among the 5 of you was great fun! I am sure you enjoy yourselves so much wherever you go!! Congrats for such a lovely family!
Susan DeBrechtUnited States
Tate was the most knowledgeable guide! Her background is impressive. Our tour of Sagruda Familia was outstanding.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Susan! It was a lovely tour!
Sally W.United States
Sadly, our time with Tate was short as an airline delay cut our scheduled 4 hour tour of Barcelona with her to only 1 1/2 hours. We did manage to pack a lot into that time and so enjoyed the time we spent together. Tate is so engaging, knowledgeable and energetic that we felt we missed so much of what Barcelona had to offer due to our shortened tour. It makes us want to return and finish her tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Sally! Yes, despite the hassel of the plane delay at least you made the most of your short stay!! the day of Saint Jordi is the most beautiful celebration in Barcelona and I am so glad all your party got the traditional red roses and you took them with you on board to accompany you throughout your journey by the Mediterranean sea...
Deborah AshinUnited States
Tate's tour was a highlight of our visit to Barcelona. She is extremely knowledgable, very personable and was flexible in creating a tour just for us, focusing on Gaudi. She is an accomplished writer and historian, with a terrific sense of humor. It was well worth hiring a private driver because we maximized our time with Tate and were able to do and see more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Deborah has worked as a guide for art museums in NY and we had so good laughs sharing our stories!! I would like to share with TBL a good one: Deborah was heading back to her office after a tour when she heard that lady telling her friend: -is it Guetty? -yes it’s him! -said the other. And then Deborah turned back and said: -I am sorry ladies! It is not Paul Guetty, it is Saint Bartholomew, and the portrait is by Rembrandt!!
Franco FelizartaUnited States
Our tour guide, Tate, was extremely knowledgeable, she was able to Answer all of our questions. We had a great time! Strongly recommend our tour guide. We had most in depth tour of Sagrada Familia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I thank you, Franco and family for a lovely morning shared together, I felt more like friends than customers! And I learned so much about California and the US!
