Lidia is great. In addition to her vast knowledge of history and politics, she can give you her perspective as a Barcelonian--and as a Catalonian-- living in these complex times. Take the tour and learn a LOT.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks!! I’m really happy that you learn about our history and get any clear idea about our political situation.

We had a delightful tour with Lidia today. She gave a great walking tour introduction to the old city and then she took us to visit Sagrada Família. She is knowledgeable and friendly. Since we are staying for a few days, she also explained how the subway system worked. Her English is excellent. I would recommend her highly. We plan to use her again, when we come back for a longer visit.

We are a family of 6 with 9 year old twins, 11 year old and a 17 year old and our tour guide Lidia was great. She made sure to make sure we all understood and tried keeping the kids engaged by showing pictures on her iPad. It was a cold rainy day and she made the best of it. The next tour we take is the Gothic Tour and we look forward to better weather , but over all the Gaudi and Sagrada Familia Tour was great.

Lidia made it possible to get a very good understanding of this beautiful city in a very short period of time. As we walked we learned of the history of Barcelona going back to Roman times and seeing the changes that took place over many century we were also able to get a feel for the people who lived there from the beginning right up to the present. The ridding part of the tour allowed us to see many of the fantastic points of interest in air condition comfort. All and all Lidia was terrific!

Lidia is a great guide-her love and pride of Barcelona shows and you can tell she loves what she does. She easily adapts to meet the needs of your group and we never felt rushed or "herded". We especially loved her knowledge of the art history and the architecture of the city. We did the 6 hour get to know Barcelona tour and she was so helpful with other recommendations and transportation options.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Pavy, it was my pleasure to spend the morning with you and your husband, regards.

It is rare to find a guide as well versed in history and culture than Lidia is. She not only knows how to present the tour, but her pacing and flexibility are outstanding. She makes everything appear effortless. This tour added such value to our short visit to Barcelona! Can't wait to return and have Lidia show us more!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Susan! I really enjoy the company of you three, please contact me when you come back to Barcelona!!

Lidia is an easy 5 star choice, who gave us the most complete, in depth tour of the Pocasso and Miro museums. So many people were sticking like flys to our small 6 member family group as Lidia gave one insight after the other about Picasso, it was hard to fault them. There can't be a better companion to Picasso's art in Barcelona than Lidia. Lidia also knew her stuff about Miro. Miro was not Picasso; still Lidia's guidance maximized our visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Frederick, I really enjoy our visit of Picasso Museum and Miro Foundation.

Lidia is amazing! Our last night in Barcelona (and in Europe), Lidia met us at the hotel, and we were whisked away by taxi to a special attraction site, at which we had tickets for a remarkable flamenco show and tapas for dinner. This deserved a standing ovation. Then more walking, photo taking (which Lidia has since sent us several via email), and back to our hotel for our good-byes. We applaud Lidia for an outstanding performance as a #1 private tour guide. Thank you.

Lidia is amazing! Only a few hours off the cruise ship, and Lidia met us at our hotel for a whirlwind walking tour of Barcelona. Her enthusiastic personality and her knowledge are remarkable. We visited inside the major church, then off to the major market, then off to many major spots around town, finished with the Picasso Museum. Lidia smiled and pointed out sights and gave us directions and lists of places to visit and eat at later. We laughed all day together.

First of all it was really fun to meet Lidia. We had a great tour. We saw things we did not even know we needed to see. She put everything into a historical perspective, answered tons of obscure questions and made us realize, once again, how much we learn when we have a private tour with a local resident. Thanks Lidia.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to you, I really enjoy our stroll, it was my first time with two geologist, I really learnt thing from you too. Please contact with me when you come back!

We had a very limited time to see the sights in Barcelona, and so were looking for someone to give us a good overview of the city. Lidia and her four hour van tour did just that. We could have been more pleased with her service. Were picked up in a bright, shinny touring van, and driven from one end of the city to the other, frequently getting out to see specific sights. Lidia know the city and its history exceedingly well. Ended with a great visit to the Sagrada Familia. No waiting in line! WOW!

I would give this tour 5 stars because to me it was very interesting. Lidia explained very well the historical context and influences of Picasso and Miro. However I have to give it only 4 stars because my family thought visiting two museums was too much in one day. So, I highly recommend this tour anyone over 15years old, but limit your tour to only one museum or 30min in each museum if you are traveling with young children.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I agree, 2 museums for children in one tour can be a lot, I take note about it in oorder to prevent my guests in future customized tours. Thanks for your comment Diana!

The Flamenco show tour is an excellent option if you are traveling with children. Our girls were really engaged by the dancing. We all enjoyed the food. The show was just long enough to be enjoyable without being tiring or repetitive. As we finished early enough, we had time to enjoy the village. The Flamenco show takes place in a little village built about 100 years ago meant to show visitors in 1 hour most representative sites from each region of Spain.
