If I still owned my Company, I would hire her as my Sales Manager. I have traveled extensively on 5 continents and she is the BEST TOUR guide we have ever had. 5 stars is not high enough for Florenta.....Should be at least a ten. WHY?? ***** Her communication skills are outstanding...both before the trip was booked and during the actual tour***** She is extremely personable and always watching out for her "family"...am I walking to fast for you??....do you want to stop for a rest.. *****She is incredible

Florenta gave us a beautiful tour of Montserrat yesterday and we give her a 5 stars out of 5 stars rating. We loved our time with her and she took excellent care of us. She is a very professional guide and was friendly and kind and thought of our every comfort and need. She customized our tour so we could take in the Mass and the personal time with the Black Madonna and we got right up front for the Boy's Choir performance. We highly recommend Florenta. She is wonderful~~we have made a new friend!

Such a fun day!! Florenta picked us up right at our apartment in Spain and from there we started on an educational and fun adventure. 1 hour drive from Barcelona and you are in the gorgeous mountains of Mountserrat. Florenta gave us a lot of history and insight before we arrived. Once there, it was beautiful and majestic. Florenta did an incredible job navigating and avoiding crowds while there. After, lunch in Sitges was the perfect end to the trip by the coast! Florenta was awesome!

Florenta was incredible. She walked with us around Barcelona and showed us the major sites and taught us about the amazing history of the city. Florenta was fantastic with our 10 year old daughter and she was able to show us great shopping spots and wonderful places to eat. Her knowledge of history and architecture were incredible. We would not have been able to see all of the sites and learn about the history of Barcelona without Florenta. She was awesome!!!

It was like touring with your best friend who happens to know all the details about Barcelona! She brings an iPad with extra photos that help her tell her story and help us understand more fully. We would like to travel with her everywhere! Can't go wrong.

Florenta is just the most gorgeous guide. We had a really lovely day driving out to Montserrat with her. She was informative, funny, kind and generous and made our day just perfect. She had my 15 year old daughter captivated and was so inclusive with her. The hike was amazing, I am not the fittest person and Florenta went at a pace that was suitable for me and the view at the end was breath taking. I wish we had booked more tours with her she is such a delight!

Florenta gave us an excellent tour of Monserrat. She picked us up at the port at the scheduled time. On the drive she pointed out historic sites and the history of the mountain. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We arrived at Mountserrat and took the cable car up to the village. We took a tour of the church and gave us the history of the church. After that we took the funicular to the top of the mountain. We took some fantastic pictures. Thank you Florenta

We enjoyed a wonderful day with Florenta in Tarragona and Stiges. We are lovers of history and good food, and Florenta was a great guide , enabling us to fulfil our priorities for the day. We first visited the Roman viaduct outside Tarragona which set the scene for a morning travelling the Roman history of the area. Florenta was very knowledgeable , but also knew how to convey her facts in a very appealing manner. We explored the little streets of the old town before we visited Stiges for a great lunch .

Florenta was our favorite tour guide while in Barcelona! She was the perfect combination of educative, humorous and sweet. Our drive to and from Montserrat were full of pleasant conversation and education. She was great with our 6-year-old: kind, patient and fun...he was utterly smitten. She braved the cable car with us (despite her fear of heights!), and was always willing to adapt the tour to our needs, likes and limitations. We LOVED Montserrat, and were so thankful we had Florenta to care for us!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the review!! The entire family was adorable! I hope one day we will meet again, and take the Cable Car to Montserrat, then you will see how much I love the ride now!

Florenta was an absolute delight.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in Roman history or just wants to see something different than the typical sights in Barcelona. Tarragona has a well-preserved aquaduct (comparable to Pont du Garde) and ampitheater, as well as a chariot-racing arena and forum. Most of all, you have Florenta to explain it all to you. Although this was my second visit to Barcelona, I'll come back again just to take a tour of Montserrat with Florenta to her "special" place. You should too.

Our time with Florenta was wonderful. I absolutely recommend her as a tour guide. She was organized and an excellent communicator. We enjoyed our conversations; she is well-informed and gave us insights and information we would never have access to if we had ventured to Montserrat on our own. She is delightful to be around, upbeat, outgoing with a lively sense of humor. I wish we could have spent more time with her. If I am ever back in Barcelona, I certainly will!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Susan! It was an amazing day with you girls! I would have loved to spend more time with you too!! You know you have to come back in 9 years, and I will be here waiting! Wishing you the best!! Florenta

Florenta was a wealth of information. She provided us with a good overview of the works by Gaudi and Barcelona. She was friendly, prompt and professional. She even personalized the tour by taking the tie to show us a few things that were of personal interest to us. She made our trip to Barcelona very memorable. We would highly recommend her and thank her for a special day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Susan! It was a pleasure showing you Barcelona and Gaudi's works. Maybe we will meet again in 2026!

Fantastic tour with Florenta. She was early took her time with us, was very friendly and explained so many things that my children and my wife and I will remember. She provided valuable insight and sat with us for refreshments and gave us time to purchase souvenirs. Thanks again and we definitely will remember to ask for Florenta again in the future should we return.

Florenta picked us up at our hotel and took us to Montserrat for the day. We have taken many tours in Spain, but hers was one of the best. Her English was excellent and very easy to understand. She provided very good insights into the history and culture of Catalonia aso well as many historical facts about Spain. As her phone took better pictures than my camera, she took and sent us several dozen pictures of our tour which was much appreciated! Would definitely recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the review! It was a pleasure to spend that day with you and to be your tour guide!

Our recent cruise ended in Barcelona. Fortunately we contacted Florenta to take us to Monserrat for a day and tothe Gothic Quarter. She was very efficient in her response which made our visit memorable. Florenta is an outstanding guide very intelligent, pleasant, friendly and enthusiastic. She goes beyond her tours recommending other sites not to be missed, help with restaurants and got us to a fabulous Flamingo performance. We highly recommend our new friend to make your visit to Barcelona outstanding.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Carol. I felt like I was with friends as well, and hope to see you again one day!
