This was our second time using Lidia as our guide in Barcelona. She is a native of the city, and a font of information and history. I would not consider a visit, as familiar as we have become, without at least one day of guidance from her. She customizes her tours to fit your interest and needs, and will vary her itinerary as needed to suit you. We learned about the pintxos and the wonderful chocolate stores with the BEST of the hot chocolates, because she knows THE places to go! When we wanted to explore some antique shops, she knew just where to take us. Cannot recommend Lidia enough. Fabulous guide!

Lidia has a deep understanding of Barcelona and the region. We had tours with her for two of the seven days we were in Barcelona. On the first tour she took us on a walking tour of La Ramblas and the Gothic Area. She then showed us how the Metro worked as we took it to Sagrada Familia. She also gave as numerous suggestions on what we should see and how to get around while on our own the following days until our second schedule day with her to take us to Montserrat. The walk down La Ramblas and then into the Gothic area with her gave us so much insight into the area and it's history and places we might want to spend more time in the next days (and great places to eat). At Sagrada Família, we got an incredible understanding of a remarkable place, and she also gave us an insight into the designer and builder Gaudi and his life. He came alive to us. Lidia is an engaging person who we enjoyed spending time with. We highly recommend Lidia.

Lidia was the perfect choice to guide our trips in Barcelona. We were a group of 5 with 2 teenagers and 83 year old grandma in a wheelchair. That was the reason we chose a private tour and it turned out so great. We did the walking tour, which is very doable with a wheelchair in Barcelona. We also did the daytour combining Montserrat and Sitga visits. Lidia has a great knowledge of Barcelona history and current events. The tours ran so smoothly and we highly recommend her!

We did a day trip to Montserrat. Lidia was very knowledge and we had a disabled passenger with us. Lidia knew exactly what and where to see that was accessible. We didn't feel we missed out on anything. She is very good and very helpful. I would recommend Lidia to anyone who is thinking of doing a day trip. She can customise it to suit you. Very flexible. Thank you Lidia. We loved your sense of humour and you know the sites very well.

We did a walking tour of Barcelona and a visit to the Picasso Museum and Sagrada Familia with Lidia. What a delightful person. She was very knowledgeable and informative. While we enjoyed walking the city, Lidia excelled at the Picasso museum. We could have wandered from room to room with no real purpose, but not with Lidia. She has a vast knowledge of Picasso and his art. We enjoyed masterpieces with a guide who could tell us all about the life of this artist. Then we went to Sagrada Familia. Lidia showed us all the details of this sight that we would have probably missed. She also advised us against going up the towers, she said that they weren't worth the extra 14 Euro. My wife and I went up anyway, because we wanted to see the view. Well, Lidia, you were right. Not worth the money to go up the tower... I would recommend using Lidia for a wonderful Barcelona experience!
