Tour: #433064, Barcelona Private Gaudí Tour with Licensed Guide for Judy Petrie, Barcelona, Cataluña, Spain    view tour
Date: Mar 8/20

Absolutely WONDERFUL tour!! Laura was extremely knowledgeable and enjoyable. We had a group of 9 with varying degrees of knowledge about architecture, and every single one of us enjoyed the 5 hours we spent learning from her. That was no Eady task for her! Plus, she went ABOVE AND BEYOND by helping us when my sister-in-law lost her wallet after exiting a taxi. When this world gets back to normal and people travel again, you simply MUST tour with Laura.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Judy! thank you so much for taking your time to write such nice words! it was a pleasure to show you Gaudí's works. Happy to know you are nice and safe back home. Stay safe and come back soon! Say hello to all your family! Hoping everybody and all your family and friends are ok! Take care, warm regards! Laura

Laura provided our group of six with a superb walking tour of old Barcelona on November 17th, 2019. She was prompt and effective in replying to our pre-tour questions and this helped us substantially. Her knowledge of history and culture, and her expert guidance through the area provided us an excellent experience. She managed our small group effectively and made efficient use of our time. The full group was pleased with the tour, and we would certainly book her again. Highest recommendation!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Diane, Thank you very much for your wonderful comment. It is always a great pleasure to know the tour was a success and my guests are happy. I always say that the tour is a success because I have a great audience interested in our culture! Please do come back and say hello to all the group. Happy New Year!! Best Laura

Our group of 8 did a walking tour with Laura on our first full day in Barcelona and she was fabulous! She was extremely knowledgeable on the history of Barcelona and was very friendly. We covered a lot of ground and saw things we would never had found ourselves. She gave us tips on where to eat and places worth coming back for a more detailed visit. I would highly recommend Laura as your TourByLocals in Barcelona. Muchas Gracias!

We booked Laura for a tour on a shore excursion in Barcelona. It was a pleasure to have her take us around to see the Gaudi sites and the Picasso Museum. Laura was quick to return my emails and very willing to modify the tour to our preferences. She met us exactly as agreed and on time. We found her to be very passionate and knowledgeable about Gaudi and Picasso as well as local insight on Barcelona. We very much enjoyed our day in Barcelona with Laura!

Laura is a wonderful guide! She is knowledgeable, engaging and fun. She went out of her way to be sure our interests were accommodated and was totally open to modifying the itinerary.

We felt as though we were nickel and dimed to death.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Rebecca, I am really sorry that after a great and pleasant morning we spent together you were so disapointed at the end finding out the tickets for the monuments were not included. I spoke afterwards to your agent and he realized he did not warned you about it, even though it was clear in my tour description. I will solve this in the future as I will include tickets for this tour. I am really sorry and present my excuses if I did not made myself clear.
