She was fabulous. We walked around the Jewish quarter and stopped at various locations. At that time she showed visuals and explained the history of the Jewish people as well as the history of Spain. She connected the various information in a concise manner. She pointed out many things that we just overlooked. The palace walls were made from Jewish headstones. Most were not visible to the eye but there were a few stones in Hebrew. We saw where the inquisition was held. We passed the office of the rulers who administered the inquisition.
The skip-the-line tickets are nice although the timing that we visited Casa Batllo and La Sagrada Familia on a Sunday also seemed less busy. There were 15 of us and it was a good group size and with the earphones, it was easy to hear the narration and jokes by Javier. However I thought Javier could have done a better job ensuring that all 15 of us were together before moving off to different spots to explain the attractions. The transportation was comfortable and prompt by David.
The guide was absolutely wonderful. Genuinely concerned about our well being and if we got everything she said. Spoke perfectly English which even my mom understood (we're Dutch). She deserves a salary raise whatever her salary is! Only thing is that the time in Parc Guëll could have been a bit longer as far as I'm concerned. Would have like to stroll around a bit more. But all in all a really great tour with a very knowledgeable, sweet Nd sympathetic guide.
This is a complete tour of Gaudí’s work in Barcelona: Sagrada Familia. Park Güell and Casa Battlo. We went from one location to the other in a bus. Park Guell is just so charming and definitely a must visit in Barcelona. It’s also a bonus to walk the street of Passeig de Gracia and see Casa Milà on our way to Casa Battlo.
A time efficient way to see Gaudi highlights if you don't have much time in the beautiful city. Personal guide much better than audio guide. A bit of time wasting when there was the English and Spanish versions to listen too but that gave the opportunity to step away for photos.
