About
This Tour will give you a quick insight into the rich and complex history of Barcelona. On a relaxed walk through the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter and El Borne district we will follow the footsteps of its ancestors and learn more about different epochs and personalities that shaped the history of this heroic city over 2000 years. Founded by the Romans in 1c.BC, Barcelona still embraces part of its origins inside the medieval buildings. During prosperous times of Kingdom of Aragon, it was one of central ports of medieval Sea-trade with many merchant and diplomatic delegations established in the city. The Jewish community, living in El Call, also helped in consolidation of culturally rich and cosmopolitan spirit over centuries until 1492, when Iberian Peninsula stopped being homeland for all 3 religions: Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Eventually we will learn more about the political changes after the War of Spanish Succession (1702-1715), still echoing today.

Excellent 2-day tour of Barcelona
Mar 2019
My wife and I had a great 2-day tour of Barcelona with Maria who expertly structured the tours to meet our request that the pace be leisurely, not too tiring and a maximum of 4 hours per day. Maria had limousine to drive us around Barcelona with stops on important sites such as the Montjuic Hill, Olympic stadium, Casa Batllo, La Pedrera and the La Sagrada Familia Cathedral. Maria walked us around the old town and introduced us to some Catalan cuisine. I strongly recommend Maria if you are looking for private and customized tours.

Maria was awesome! She knows all the ins and out of Barcelona and took us to ll the places we wanted to see. Her knowledge of the history of the city was amazing. Her passion for the city made our tour very exciting.

Maria was punctual in picking us up and made sure we weren't rushed as we had an older person in our group. She spent half a day with us and also had a driver take us on a scenic tour around the city.

I would recommend her in a flash!

Maria Nadina is an excellent guide. We have used her twice for two different tours at two different trips to Barcelona in 2016 and 2018. We have recommended her to friends. She is prompt, caring, knowledgeable, organized and speaks excellent English. We will use her very professional and friendly services again if our 2021 trip to Barcelona comes to fruition. She is highly recommended. Lynn S. (Alabama)

Oh what a great news Lynn! Happy to hear you are coming back! I am glad you did not get tired of Barcelona. Let me know the dates when you have it more clear, to keep the day free for you. We will have to plan in advance, so we do not repeat things, although as I told you every trip is different! Looking forward to your new visit. I will have to be creative this time :))

Barcelona with Maria Nadina
Sep 2019 • Couples
Maria was a wonderful guide. She took us on a walking tour of Barcelona that explored the nooks and crannies that tourists would never see on their own. Her knowledge of the history of Catalonia, Spain, and Europe was superb. It was a truly amazing experience. We highly recommend her.

Dear Ben, thank you for a nice review. I am glad I made you discover the secrets of Barcelona, but hopefully not enough so you do come back one day to explore some more! All the best to you and your wife. (I hope she still uses those exclusive fans we bought in the Old town :)
