Débora was my local guide. She was excellent in communicating with me prior to our meeting. She was punctual and well prepared. She gave me a great introduction to the city. She covered all the places/streets she had mentioned at the beginning of our meeting. And she made it sure that our walk would end near the place where I was staying so that I would not have any trouble in navigating the neighborhoods on my first day in Barcelona. I strongly recommend Débora!

The guide, Juan, was very knowledgeable about the places that we visited. He also brought me to very beautiful buildings that are not listed in a tourist guide.. Even though the trip was free and easy, he planned it in a way that we could visit different areas within the timeframe in an organised manner! He was also patient with my questions and phototaking! It was a fruitful tour!

Our tour guide was called Anna-Maria and she was super well prepared, individually prepared for us and, at our request, showed us a new side of Barcelona. She picked us up from our hotel and ended up driving us to the restaurant door by reserving a table. She speaks perfect German since she grew up in Germany. My personal highlight was that she showed us a rooftop bar from which we had a 360 degree view of Barcelona. She also recommended a rooftop bar from which you can look directly at the Sagrada familia. Overall, she was able to answer all of our questions very well and in detail and has adapted to us. It felt like we were out and about with a friend who lives in Barcelona and the three hours have just flown by.
