Despite the cold and windy weather, we thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Jewish quarter with Dina. She was friendly, informative, knowledgeable and very interesting. Thank you Dina!

We went on three tours in Barcelona. The other two were fabulous! This one was extremely boring. Our tour guide kept showing us pictures and talking for 30 minutes at a time. I told her we would like to see more and have less talking but she didn’t seem to care what we wanted.

Response from barcelona d, Owner at Walking History Tour of Barcelona's Jewish Quarter
Responded 12 Jan 2020
I am so sorry to hear about your negative experience - especially when the other two were such great tour experiences. We will definitely speak to the guide and try to understand what happened and perhaps she misunderstood the situation. In any case, we will do what we can to prevent this from happening again. It is our goal to ensure our tours are interesting, enlightening, and fun. Thank you for your feedback to help us improve our services.
