We had such a great tour with Lidia in Barcelona! Her driver and vehicle were both first class! Lidia’s knowledge of architecture & design gave us a spectacular explanation of the building of Sagrada Familia and the Park Guell. It was simply the best. Lunch at a tapas restaurant was awesome!The visit to the Picasso Muesuem was wonderful because Lidia has a wealth of art Knowledge about Picasso. I highly encourage you to select Lidia for your time in Barcelona-you will be very happy you did
Lidia was very accomodating and really worked hard to adjust to our schedule changes and working with our 87 year old mother. She is very knowledgable about Barcelona, the History of Barcelona, and Spain in general. Great trip to Monseratt. Highly Recommended.
My family and I spent a wonderful morning in Barcelona with Lidia! I have 2 teenage sons (16 and 19). Lidia really kept them engaged and interested! We would highly recommend her!!
Lidia is wonderful. She is a font of information, told from a personal perspective. Her “big picture” van tour was so impressive that we signed up for an old-town walking tour with her later. Big thumbs up!
Lidia provided a terrific tour of old Barcelona and La Sagrada Familia. Her lifelong residency in Barcelona gives her a unique and informative perspective. We highly recommend Lidia!
I can’t imagine that there are many guides of Lidia Santiago’s caliber. She has witnessed much of the building of Sagrata Familia since her childhood. Friendly personality and skilled with languages. Make her your first choice.
What an incredible day! Lidia is a genuine and charismatic guide throughout the city covered extensive topics and featured many incredible sites around Barcelona. She carefully covered many topics, answered our endless question – all the while accommodating and engaging the diverse needs of our group of 6. She is passionate and charming, and a fully trained tourism professional. Every small detail was covered perfectly. My only suggestion is to listen to her advice, she won’t steer you wrong!
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 was very informative. We enjoyed the tour and learned a lot about Gaudi. Her explanations made everything more clear. She was very helpful and we would be most happy to have her on any other tour. Thank you. Lidia, thank you for such an informative tour. We loved learning about Gaudi and your explanations were very helpful. One of the best tours we have had. Thanks again.
Lidia was a great guide. We really enjoyed our tour of Barcelona. The history explanation was particularly good during the morning walk in the old part of town. The highlights of the tour were the Park Guell and the Sagrada Familia. Lidia made everything exciting and relevant. Plus the minivan was a luxurious Mercedes Benz.
Lidia is a Barcelona treasure herself. What a wonderful tour. We saw everything Gaudi and Segrada Familia and left with a profound understanding of the history of both. I have already recommended Lidia to three people while still on vacation. Hire her now. She is amazing !!
Lidia was absolutely delightful! She was informative, flexible, fun, funny, knowledgeable, passionate and energetic. She and our driver picked us up at the cruise terminal, and took us on a wonderful eight hour overview of Barcelona. After our first four hours touring in the van, they took us to our hotel and waited while we checked in. We then went on a walking tour of the Gothic Quarter. Both my wife and I and our traveling friends would highly recommend Lidia to show you around Barcelona!
Lidia was excellent , very knowledgeable and friendly, answered every question, and help us take pictures , She is a great guide and bilingual . We enjoyed our tour a lot!!!!! thank you Lidia.
Lidia was really cool and very Knowledgable. A great way to get acclimated to the Gòtic District and get the most out of your visit to Sagrada Familia.
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.
Lydia was very well informed about Gaudi and about the Sagrada Familia. She was on timely, gracious and very pleasant. The tour was very well organized. I would highly recommend her.
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.
Lydia was engaged and fun and did a great job explaining a lot of city history, and art history, on our tour of Barcelona’s old town and Picasso museum. Skipped the lines, too! Well worth it! Thanks, Lydia!
Lidia was great! Knowledgeable, personable and animated. Good with our teenagers. Would recommend highly!
As soon as Lidia arrived at the hotel in Barcelona, I knew we were in for a wonderful day. Her personality was delightful and even the drive to Girona was fun. The Dali Museum was made even more special because of the depth of her knowledge and her joy in sharing it. She is an excellent guide and we loved our day with her. We have decided that we should never go to another museum without a guide. We learned so much from Lidia that, looking back, we felt that we were in the presence of not only an excellent teacher, but a person who really cared that we understood what Dali was all about – if that is possible! What a special day. Lunch was fun as well – thanks to Lidia for sharing her special cafe.
Lidia was very insightful sharing her knowledge of the city’s history. She was especially helpful in obtaining tickets for the Sagrada Familia. Each person in our group enjoyed the tour.
Lidia is an extremely well versed student of Gaudi. She knows her stuff. She was prompt, prepared and enthusiastic about presenting some of the most famous as well as the most famous, La Sagrada Familia, in Spain. She is a native of the city of Barcelona and will give you a good background into the history of the city as well. Very professional and enjoyable.
My family and I had a great time. Lidia was very knowledgeable, explained the history of the Barri Gotic and Barcelona. To top it off, she provided an incredible understanding of Picasso and his development as an artist. Lidia really made our vacation and convinced us that we will need to visit Barcelona again to soak in all this City has to offer.
Lidia is a wonderful guide. Her English is excellent and she took us to some wonderful places in Barcelona, including some of her personal favorites. A lovely time.
Lidia, was GREAT! Very knowledgeable and interesting.
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.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Lidia on our walking tour. She is very knowledgeable and obviously very passionate about her homeland.
Lidia was on time, informative, considerate and made everything seem alive as we toured. We would happily tour with her again.
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!
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Barcelona with Lidia. We learned an incredible amount and saw so much of the city. Our professional driver was great too. My family loved this tour and can’t wait to return. Thanks for everything, Lidia. You do great work and we learned so much.
Lidia was extremely knowledgeable and personable. I highly recommend her and we will call on her again.
This tour is the only way to see all the highlights Barcelona has to offer in a limited about of time. Lidia was fantastic. Easy to work with, and adapt to our wishes. She was also able to accommodate not only my husbands and I love for walking around, but made it feasible for my 70 year old mother in law to manage the sites as well. Highly recommend Lidia to anyone wanting to see the highlights of Barcelona.
To visit everything Gaudi was always on my bucket list and when we planed our trip to Barcelona a top priority. Lidia our lovely tour guide provied us with all the information and history and the 4 hours passed far too fast. She made the tour interesting and also related well to our teenage daughter. The highlight was the Sagrada Familia where we got in without standing in any que. Highly recomend Lidia, her english is perfect and she is great company.
Another wonderful tour with Lidia! I have already recommended Lidia for all tours Barcelona and the surrounding cities. She is a wealth of knowledge and fun to be with as well. Thank you for everything!
