Get Creative like Gaudi at Park Güell

We almost cancelled because my husband wasn't feeling well. I am so glad we instead decided to leave him behind! We easily found Marta at the meeting point, and she immediately engaged with my kids. While her English was sometimes a bit challenging to understand, she was patient and gracious, and we were always able to figure out what she was trying to express.

My children received a wonderful lesson in architecture that tied in to the art project Marta did with them. It was challenging enough to be interesting but not so hard as to have them lose interest. They were both very proud of their finished product. They also had a much greater appreciation for Gaudi and Park Guell after our time with Marta.

I highly recommend the art experience and our host, Marta.

90 Minutes Kickstart Tour of Barcelona

Traveling with elderly parents and young children was never an easy task, especially in a busy city like Barcelona. Nevertheless, Fiorella was so kind and gentle, she made walking in the winding streets in Gothic Quatre like a magical journey with all hidden gems.

Fiorella’s command in English is perfect and take time to make sure everyone in the group can hear her. She was punctual, adaptable and super easygoing. The whole trip was so relaxed that it felt just like meeting an old friend. You will not be disappointed with Fiorella as your host.
