My husband and I were delighted with our guide. She was very knowledgeable and passionate about the cultural destinations in Barcelona. We visited the Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, and the Barri Gotic all in one day www.privatetoursinistanbul.com but it never felt overwhelming as she paced us well and took breaks as we needed (what with me being 7 months pregnant!) Her English was excellent and she always took the time to answer any whimsical questions about Catalan language, life, and whatnot that crossed our minds. A must if you want to experience Barcelona in the most in-depth way possible!
