This is our second time touring with Context. Our first was in Rome and we were taken places that I am sure we would not have seen on any other tours.
This recent tour in Barcelona was beyond what we thought we would see and learn. Our tour guide Biell, was very knowledgable and had such a passion for Gaudi. His passion truly rubbed off on us. We enjoy the walking tours and not having to go on and off the buses. For us, the English has always been perfect and never a problem understanding our guides.

We look forward to using Context on our next trips. Thank you for making these options possible to us.

We've had great experience with Context tours, but Santiago, the tour guide for our tour was a cut above. He was so passionate about modernism and very knowledgeable. The tour goes to a couple of Gaudi sites, but truly does place his work in context -- the architectural context and even political. He was wonderful and the tour was wonderful. We'll be doing others as we travel.

They invited me to take a tour with them, and it was my first experience with Context, and I really enjoyed seeing such a neat perspective on the city from a local. I went on the Chocolate tour in Barcelona, and I loved the length of the tour, the docent was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the city's history in addition to the chocolate history! Just the right amount of chocolate on the tour, the tour length was great, and I would recommend for chocolate lovers. It was also great as a solo traveler because I was able to be friendly and chat with everyone else throughout our tour.

We took the chocolate tour with Esther on our first day in Barcelona. It was a great way to start our trip because we learned a lot about chocolate in Spain, loved the samples, and got a great look at a lot of the old city. Esther is knowledgable and lovely. We all loved it! We also took the Spanish Civil War tour with Allen Warren. He has an amazing amount of information and makes the tour interesting and fun. Allen took us to places we would never have found on our own and really made us feel like we understood the events as well as the emotions. We couldn't recommend it highly enough.

We combined The Gothic Quarter and Casa Mila as one four hour walking tour. Our docent, Sonia was knowledgeable, personable and made our day.

On the chocolate tour, not only did we learn about the history and making of chocolate but all the samples were absolutely delicious! Thank you, Esther!

We had a great time on both tours.
Kudos to Context Tours...we're ready to be your 'good-will' ambassadors!
