My husband and I, along with our two children ages 15 and 11 had an amazing day with Maria Teresa. We experienced a full-day tour of Barcelona with half walking and half chauffeured throughout the city. Maria Teresa took us to see and experience Barcelona from both a tourists perspective but also from a local Catalonian perspective. Areas we toured included: Gothic Quarter, Cathedral (Christopher Columbus came to this cathedral when he returned from Spain from his voyage to the new world. My 11 year old son loved this!), La Rambla, Boqueria Market (this market is amazing and I so wish we had one of these in my hometown. it was bustling because all were gathering their ingredients for their Christmas meals), Eixample District / Passeig de Gràcia, Block of Disagreement & Casa Milà / Pedrera, Park Güell (amazing! a must see), Sagrada Familia church (inside – also unbelievable), Waterfront, Olympic sites. I always recommend hiring a private tour guide when visiting a new city or region. I believe it is so important to know and understand the area, architecture and history. It is important for my husband and I to teach our kids of different cultures and to know what streets we may be walking down or past significant historical sites. Very well done!!
