What a wonderful tour we had with Gloria of the Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila and a walking tour seeing other examples of the work of Gaudi ! Gloria has extensive knowledge of the history of the Sagrada,the exterior components as well as the interior,as well as of Gaudi himself. She is extremely well educated on all the important history and was a pleasure to spend time with. I highly recommend her services as a tour guide!

Gloria was punctual, warm, personable, & v knowledgable about Barcelona & Spain history & current events. She was particularly attentive to my elderly mother's slow pace. Her English was perfect. Wish we had had Gloria for subsequent tours in Spain, where many tour guides have strong, difficult to understand accents. The 4 hours were a perfect introduction. Would like to go back to Barcelona & take more specialized tours with Gloria. There were 4 of us, with a driver. Perfect combination.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elisabeth, many thanks for your comments. It was such a pleasure touring with the four of you, and your mother is so adorable! Again, muito obrigada !!

This was an excellent tour and Gloria was a knowledgeable and passionate guide. We were a group of four and we all enjoyed strolling the streets and learning about Barcelona's fascinating history. This was truly a highlight of our five night stay. Gloria left us with a great appreciation for the city as well as little tidbits of knowledge we never would have gotten by randomly reading the plaques on monuments. Thank you, Gloria!

We had a great morning at Parc Guell with Gloria!!! I would highly recommend Gloria as her knowledge of Barcelona, and Catalonia and her Art History expertise are outstanding. She made sure we knew where to meet and how we would travel, ahead of time. We went in the back entrance to the Parc so we could walk down the hill instead of up. Her stories of the Parc's history and of Gaudi and Guell were interesting and fun. she was also able to give us insight into other attractions in and around Barcelona

She understood we didn't want to spend all day in basilicas and cathedrals - we went to market, ate oysters and cherries...we wanted her to stay with us!!!

Gloria spent hours with us in the Sagrada Familia and Mila's house, then helping us find lunch. She feels to me now like a close friend. Her knowledge and sensitive awareness of Gaudi's vision and the spiritual depth he expressed was exemplary, above and beyond what I even hoped for. This was very well worth the investment for our family of 7, the memories and images priceless.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary, thank you so much for your kind words. I'm glad you and your lovely family enjoyed the tour. I enjoyed the time we spent together too. I wish you all the best, and maybe our paths will meet again in the future, who knows? Maybe in 2026 when the Sagrada Familia will be finished? Mary, again, thank you, muchas gracias!!!

We did the tour in Spanish but you could hear her seamless transition between Spanish and English (and Catalan!) and she also does the tours in French. Just amazing, educational, kind, flexible and, most of all, fun! Worth every penny!

She took us on a morning tour of old town first. And we learned things we never would have without her. She was terrific

We had a great tour, and Gloria was fantastic. Very friendly, took some family pictures first, and explained far more than I can describe here, but included info on Gaudi, construction, timelines, sculptors, history,and we really enjoyed hearing about the features on the facades and their stories. I especially loved the part about Gaudi's use of parabolic and hyperbolic shapes, to create a surprisingly natural space inside, like entering a forest. Gloria was fun, and very friendly, and very knowledgeable

We had a great time with Gloria. Her expertise in art history made our visit to the Picasso Museum particularly interesting and she also showed us around areas of interest around the Gothic area. We particularly enjoyed the market off the Ramblas. I would definitely recommend Gloria for her knowledge and her great personality.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Marcia! being with you and your daughter was a pleasure. We had a great day together! Warmest regards.

Gloria is an outstanding guide. She was very knowledgeable of the Sagrada Familia and Casa Mila. She was flexible of the hours of the tour and very responsive to our direct inquiries. She showed us and explained some of the other sites in the vicinity of the Casa Mila. The Sagrada Familia is a wonder, if you visit you must go inside.

We really enjoyed our tour with Gloria. Before we even met her she was keen to help us make the most of our stay in Barcelona - she modified her tour to suit our needs exactly. She's knowledgable, personable, professional, flexible and kind. It was really fun to spend time with a "local" person who helped us understand so much about Barcelona and Catalunya. I highly recommend this tour.
