Heavy rain in Barcelona, and on our way to meet Sandra I was sure the day would be a failure. But Sandra saved the day! Her enthusiasm and energy were contagious, and the rain ceased while we were in Casa Battló, our first stop. Sandra was so knowledgeable and easy to be with, it was like spending the day with a friend. Our second stop was at Park Guëll, where Sandra spoke to a guard who allowed us to circumvent a construction area— the friend I was traveling with and I both have walking difficulties, and Sandra was always on the lookout for ways to make the path easier. Third stop was Sagrada Familia. As it happened, I had bought advance tickets for the wrong day, but Sandra not only managed to get new tickets immediately, but also found out how I could apply for a refund for the first set. Overall, Sandra’s knowledge of Gaudí, his work, and the social scene of his time taught us so much that we never would have known. We weren’t sure that we could manage 6 hours of touring, but it flew by. I recommend Sandra highly. She was so pleasant and easy to be with— a thoroughly satisfying day.

Sandra is a wonderful guide, knowledgeable on all things Barcelona, and accommodating for our family (including our 3 year old). We had a great day exploring Park Güell, Sagrada Família, Montjuïc, plus walked around gothic quarter and el born for lunch. Highly recommend a tour with Sandra!

We found Sandra on u tube and were very pleased with our 2 day tour with her in Barcelona. The 1st day we went to a great restaurant in the country and then on to a private wine tour and tasting. The second day was a 1/2 day Gaudi tour and then to the Gothic area for a wonnderful tapas lunch and walking tour. Sandra is very knowledgeable, personable and flexible.

Our traveling friends found Sandra on you tube and we booked a winery tour and a day in Barcelona. The winery tour was unlike any other and the restaurant near the winery was perfect. It was a cut above anything we had ever been on before. We were really sleepy after and Sandra recognized that and let us fall asleep without interrupting. Nice!

We then met her for day 2 and toured all the big attractions in Barcelona. She helped us buy our tickets before we left home and it made the day so much better. Again she took us to a very small restaurant that we would have never found and it was great. Our traveling companion Dan loved the squid sandwiches.Finished up in the Gothic quarter.
Sandra has plenty of energy and experience and really knows her architecture and history. If we come back we will definitely use her again.
We aren't the only ones who liked her. Ck out her exemplary ratings!
Thanks, Sandra!

A friend recommended Sandra as a guide during our stay in Bacelona and we enjoyed an excellent half day tour with her. Sandra was very knowledgeable and professional and made visiting Sagrada Familia and Park Guell a seamless and enjoyable experience. We would not hesitate to recommend her and only wished we had had time for a full day tour!
