«Our tour, just the two of us, my wife and I, was one of our real highlights from Barcelona. Anna, has a wealth of knowledge, she is personable and charming, and we would heartily recommend a tour with her to everyone who loves culture, art, history, architecture and the life of this great city.»

«Anna was great. We toured with 2 adults and a 13 year old. She answered every question, gave a great overview and knew everything about the cathedral. Her english is excellent and she made learning fun. I would highly recommend to everyone for her vast knowledge of Barcelona and the cathedral.»

«My husband and I spent all day with Anna of Barcelonina touring the Sagrada Familia and all the interesting parts of Barcelona. She was charming and spoke great English. Her vast knowledge really made the city come alive. She did an incredible job taking us through the Sagarada Familia. She also gave us great recommendations for the rest of our stay, such as the recently opened Bellesguard house--another Gaudi masterpiece.»
