I placed a last minute request for a solo private tour and ToursByLocals put in great effort to make it happen! Ona was spectacular! Aside from the instant bond we built, she took extra care to tailor the tour to my needs. She will add interesting personal touches that lead you to look at Sagrada Familia and Parc Güell in a different way. Having been to BCN 2 dozen times before, I wanted something different and deeper...Ona delivered! Thank you Ona!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: GRACIAS Sean. I enjoyed seing you enjoying! Beauty & colors make hearts beat with Joy, and Joy in the world is much needed; to lose joy was the opposite, nevertheless life goes on, and I am very glad my grain of sand contributed to it.

Linda RussWestport, CT, United States
My husband and I had a fantastic and unforgettable tour with charming Ona in Barcelona. She really knows her art history and added many historical and architectural facts and facets to the tour. She whisked us easily in and out of sights, skipping the lines, and teaching us so much about what we were seeing. We felt like we made a friend in Barcelona, one who took very good care of us, including showing us things like how to use the Metro. Ona is outstanding!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: LINDA, my dear... what a fantastic tour you let me give! You were receptive, smily and your eyes were shining. Seeing you enjoy is my best joy. How lucky I was to get you !!! Big hug to you both, and thank you for your nice words. Ona

Juan Carlos OrozcoUnited States
We had the pleasure of spending almost a full day with Ona, her love for Barcelona is really amazing and it shows in her touring. She was very well versed in many aspects of the City and Gaudi's work, which made our tour very special, she was able to connect with everyone in our family (travelers from 17 to 75 years old) and always provided pieces of information that enhance our knowledge and experience of our visit. You wont be disappointed when touring with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice reference. The pleasure of touring three generations of The Orozcos was mine; you have a fantastic family... I really hope that you come back in 2026 when Sagrada Familia is finished!
