Date: Sep 28/19

We met Gloria the first full day we were in Barcelona and she took us to all the sites we had requested beforehand. It was the best introduction to the city where neither of us had been...the historic places, and the places which are known for their artistic importance. Very knowlegeable, she taught us so much that we felt that we were a part of her diverse and wonderful city for the rest of our visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pamela, thanks very much for your great review. I enjoyed a lot taking you all around and I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed too. It was a pleasure to show you my hometown. All the best, Gloria

Date: Jul 16/19

After touring the old town with Gloria, we booked the Awesome Afternoon in the Sagrada Familia. It was wonderful to see this amazing cathedral with Gloria, as she brought it to life with her knowledge of the evolution of its construction and the iconography employed by Gaudi. As we traveled home, my husband reflected that our tours with Gloria were the highlights of our entire 10 day trip to Spain. Gloria is a fantastic guide and we learned so much from her. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Again, your feedback is much appreciated. Thanks so much for taking the time to write about your experience with me. It was an honor to work with people like the four of you, so well educated, interested and interesting. Best, Gloria ;-)

Date: Jul 15/19

Gloria's informative tour of Roman & Medieval Barcelona took us throughout the old town, stopping at various points of architectural and historical interest. It was fascinating to learn about the founding of Barcelona, what it was like to live in Barcelona during medieval times, and what modifications had been made to the city as it grew. We also stopped at the villa that houses the Picasso Musuem, and learned about Picasso's early life. My family LOVED the tour - including my 15 and 17 year old boys!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sara and Tom, thank you so much for your great feedback! It was my pleasure meeting and touring with your wonderful family. Please forward my regards to your boys. Best, Gloria

Gloria was a wonderful guide for my 6 hour private tour of several Gaudi designed venues. She was knowledgeable, warm and well organized. Just a pleasure and delight as a local companion. She also gave me several recommendations on additional things to see during my visit, and her suggestions turned out to be excellent. Having her as a guide absolutely enhanced my sightseeing and I recommend her unequivocally.

We were a family group of 10 ( including 3 children of 14 - 3 and 3 months !) and wanted to see and learn about the historic quarter of Barcelona. Gloria took us all around the medieval area and was very informative and fun. The kids weren't sure about whether they wanted to join us at first but by the end of the morning they all said how much they enjoyed the tour. We were also delighted Gloria managed to get us a table at the best Churros cafe in Barcelona ! Highly Recommended

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!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karen, thanks so much for such a nice review!! I had a great time with the four of you too. Best, Gloria.
