"Anna is an exceptional guide and individual. She is extremely personable and knowledgeable and we highly recommend her. She enriched our stay in Barcelona."
"Thank you for coordinating with my husband Curt to create an experience and memory of a lifetime for me; the blessing of our marriage in the crypt at La Sagrada Familia will stay with me forever. Your own excitement and joy that this was happening and that you had played a role in it was palpable and made it all the more special for me. You are a knowledgeable gifted guide well suited to your profession. Not only do you impart the information but your bring it to life in a meaningful way and you are a delight to spend time with. You exude enthusiasm and warmth. You clearly went the extra mile to make our time with you special and valuable, thank you!!! I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone I know visiting Barcelona and I hope that our paths will cross again in the future. We do hope to return to see the completed basilica.!"
"Anna did a superb job of guiding us through Gaudi's Pedrera, Sagrada Familia, and Park Guell. Her knowledge and passion about these special works comes through. It was so helpful to see the intricacies of these special works through her eyes. Added to all that she is warm personable and unpretentious. You won't go wrong choosing Anna as your guide! "
"We had two tours with Anna in Barcelona and they were awesome! She showed us all of the highlights at La Sagrada Familia and we had a lovely tapas tour in the evening throughout the Gothic Quarter. She was very flexible and accommodating with our needs. We enjoyed her company a lot and communication with her was very easy. She was extremely knowledgeable with many years of education in the tourism business. A true professional and we highly recommend!"
"Anna was so personable and attentive! We felt like we were the only ones there - ok - not quite -but she navigated it as tho we were. So much history to share and she knew every answer to every question we had. Truly a delightful person - don't miss the opportunity to share time with her on any aspect of Barcelona history. "
"Ana is kind, organized and fun. She tailored the tour to us. There was a climate march blocking streets and she made sure we got around it. She took us to a wonderful market and tapas bar. We had a marvelous time in our only day in Barcelona."
"Anna was absolutely wonderful. Great explanations of what we were seeing. Adjusted the tour to our pace and to our interests. Hard to imagine how we could have had a better experience.Thank you so much Anna for giving us a special day in Barcelona."
"I cannot say enough about Anna .... her tour guide skills were outstanding!! I am Buddhist and knew very little about the Christian practice but within a few hours Anna took me from 0-100. Additionally, we got off to a rough start...we were robbed in the Avis car rental, with the help of Anna everything was returned back to us within one day!!! If, that isn't enough, she answered all our unrelated questions!! With great appreciation and respect ...... Anna thank you so very much. "
"I was completely satisfied with Anna and the tour. Prior to the day of the tour, she communicated very clearly by email, so we knew exactly what to expect. During the tour, Anna was friendly and considerate, a good communicator, thoroughly knowledgeable, and happy to share her knowledge with us. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to others."
"Anna did a great job showing us some of the many highlights of Barcelona. She was very personable, and had an in-depth knowledge of all of the sites we visited. I particularly liked her enthusiasm and professionalism. As a side note, Anna was also really good with my 11 year old twins. She was able to easily relate to them and make the history fun and interesting. She even suggesting a few alternatives based on their interests. Book Anna for a tour. You'll be very happy with your decision!"
"Anna is a total delight. We were 4 mothers and 4 thirteen year old sons. She kept everyone engaged and is clearly passionate and very knowledgable. We hope to return soon to Barcelona and will contact Anna again to learn more about this wonderful city. "
"Just finished our Barcelona tour with Anna P. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the city and planned a perfect trip for our group, ranging in ages from 3 to 69. Everyone loved the tour and we give Anna a 5+."
"Anna was knowledgeable about all things Gaudi. She arranged her tour so as to reveal ever more impressive Gaudi works in Park Guell, finally leading us to the Sagrada Familia, where we were all overwhelmed by the exterior, and equally awed by the interior, especially the effects of the stained glass windows in the late afternoon sun. She made sure we quickly got into all venues, skipping long lines, and focusing on key points of interest. An excellent guide! "
"We booked a 4 hour private tour of La Sagrada Familia and the Park Guell with Anna P. What a lovely woman. She was so incredibly informed, cheerful and it was obvious that she loved her work. She told us everything we could want to now about both locations. We gladly give her 5 out of 5 stars and would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in the historical aspects and details of any exhibit. Great job, Anna! Bob and Eva."
"We highly recommend Anna, a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. With Anna we visited Montserrat and the Oller Del mas winery. Her commentary was rich in interesting facts and description. Anna also took the time to answer my inquisitive family's various questions about Spanish and Catalan culture with enthusiasm. What a lovely time we had!"
"Anna is First Class!! We arrived early via Black Car Service to view the Black Madonna with NO LINE!!(Experience pays) We toured the Montserrat, rode the Funicular, hiked the hill top and took some amazing pictures. She planned our 4 day excursions for Barcelona. Our kids favorite Guide!! Worth every penny!!! "
