The tour with Mariela was great and fun. My group of friends and I were 5, we ended up being separated due to organizational problems of the company, we were not allowed to exchange with other groups of the same company. Two of my friends had to go with another guide, who in the end they didn't like and ended up boring them, they didn't finish the tour.

Fue nuestro primer tour al llegar a Barcelona, y fue realmente un acierto. Martin nos explico muy buen la historia de la ciudad, sus barrios, y nos recomendó lugares, y nos dio tips para luego entrar a los diferentes museos, catedral y basílicas que fueron de suma utilidad al estar recién llegados. Lo recomiendo hacer al llegar.

El tour fue genial gracias a la guía, Paula, que hizo que se nos pasara el tiempo volando gracias a su gran conocimiento de la historia, explicando cada detalle del tour con muy buen humor y siempre una sonrisa. Personas así hacen que los lugares que visitamos sean todavía más bellos gracias a su buen hacer y gran profesionalidad.
