I stooped through a little door in a dark…
“I want to thank you for the marvelous and very informative tour of the Jewish Quarter. You listened and responded to all our questions and made sure that we understood exactly what you were telling us. I certainly appreciated the extra steps you took with me, and the time and care you showed me with my walking with my cane, and your assistance in aiding me down some steps. You were very sensitive to my needs. Your knowledge of the Jewish Quarter was invaluable to us; we never could have learned so much on our own. I can only say that you really ruined the rest of our trip to the other countries that we visited. The rest of our tours, we unfortunately, took group tours, and we felt that we did not get as much out of our tours as we did with you. You have taught us that we should have individual guides and skip the group tours. If we ever get back to Barcelona I will definitely use Barcelona Dreaming to guide us through that beautiful country and, of course, I will ask for you”
“Just a few lines to let you know that the tour on Sept 10 was very interesting and “Adi” your tour guide was very knowledgeable and responsive. Thank you very much â€“ we enjoyed it. Shalom and l”shana tovah!”
“For a Jewish Tour, I would recommend Barcelona Dreaming. I used them in Oct., 2011. Michal and Adi are great. Friendly, attentive and made Barcelona and it”s Jewish heritage come alive. We felt that we had the knowledge and visual experiences that we did not have before. These folks made us feel like “natives” of the City and we want to come back and spend more time with them. It was a great prequel to our cruise. To me time with Barcelona Dreaming is Time well spent.”
“We were on the cruise ship for 13 days after it left Barcelona. We made 4 stops on the route back to the U.S. We took several tours. But ship & tours and all the trimmings were fine, but no tour was as good as the tour you took Ellen and me on in Barcelona. It was just wonderful in every regard”
“I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your tour. Adi was great and we got a lot of information and sense of our Jewish root in Barcelona. It gave us an added dimension to our trip.
“We had a great time. Thanks Adi. We will definitely talk to our travel agent about your company.”
“We had a wonderful time on our Barcelona walking tour with Adi. He is very nice, thank you for your attention, hope to be back someday.”
Thank you so much for helping make our trip so wonderful. Your education of the area and your amazing knowledge and ability to details were just great.”
“I just want to thank you for a truly interesting tour. The personal flavor of the walking tour was just great, and I really got to appreciate what a beautiful city Barcelona is â€“ I have no doubt I got to see a side of Barcelona I would not have seen otherwise, and from a Jewish perspective, the tour of the Jewish quarter was just so informative. I had without question my most enjoyable day of my trip, and will no doubt recommend your tour to anyone I know visiting Barcelona.”
“Adi and Michal,
We had a most wonderful time! Though I do not blog, I will let my friends know about you. We actually met a number of folks the next day that were interested in what we had learned from you.”
“The four of us had a WONDERFUL tour with Adi and will highly recommend you to anyone traveling to Barcelona! Could not have been more informative or funâ€¦ Adi â€“ great sense of humor! Loved your city!!!”
“Just a note to tell you Adi was fantastic. He provided an excellent tour and was interesting, knowledgeable and fun to be with. Thank you for providing a delightful tour. We will recommend your company in the future.”
“Hi Adi and Michal, We had a very nice experience and we will be happy to spread the word. We appreciate Adi”s passion for history and he”s a genuinely nice guy. Today, we saw the churro bakery and stopped in to have fresh churro. We missed the opportunity to take a photo with Adi, next time. Regards.”
“Ari, Thanks very much for an interesting tour. It was very entertaining and enjoyable. Even our grandchildren (aged 15 and 9) enjoyed it. The younger one is now an expert on the Mikva thanks to you. We would never have found most of the places you showed us. Will recommend you to anyone visiting Barcelona. Thanks again.”
“Dear Michal. We thank you very much for having Adi and Layla guide our 2 tours. They were well-informed and pleasant to be with. We would have missed so much if we had tried to guide ourselves!”
“Thank you, Michal & Adi, for our excellent Jewish quarter tour with Teresa. She was wonderful, kind, and knowledgable; and we enjoyed our tour very much!”
My daughters (age 8 and 12) and I just finished our tour with Adi of the Jewish Quarter. It was a highlight of our stay here in Barcelona. He is very engaging with the kids and explains well a complex subject. My girls agreed it was one of the most interesting tours we have taken in Barcelona. We saw many remnants and pieces of history that we would have never known existed in this area. It’s a must tour when you visit Barcelona!!
We took the 4 hour combined tour of Barcelona. Adi, the tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. The tour showed sites that you could never find on your own and gave a broad perspective of both the Jewish history of Barcelona as well as the overall evolution of the city. Highly recommended.
Barcelona Dreaming offered one of the best tours on our recent trip to Spain. We originally had a few couples going on this tour of the Jewish quarter. When they cancelled out, Barcelona Dreaming arranged to include us with two others to form a small walking tour. The tour was supposed to be 2 hours, but our guide Adi Mahler did not rush us and with all the information and stories about each site, it ran almost 3 hours. After several tours that week, I believe Adi was the most prepared and knowledgeable of any guide we used. If you have the time this is a great tour.
Adi, I just want to thank you so very much for making our trip to Barcelona so hospitable and amazingly wonderful. Your knowledge of and passion for what you do is contagious and I”m so grateful to have spent the hours with you. Your charming personality and humor was most certainly welcomed!
If you ever venture to the left side of the US, please give me a heads up as I would love to share Santa Barbara with you.
Kol tuv, be well and take gentle care.
Our two hour walk with Adi was a real pleasure. He was so Informative, and friendly and has a great sense of humor!
We enjoyed it thoroughly and will definitely do a review on TripAdvisor.
Please thank him again and we wish you both a happy Pesach!!
We thoroughly enjoyed Dina as our tour guide. She was warm and friendly and gave us so much information not only on the Jewish history and environment of Barcelona, but could answer any question we asked on any subject. I would be more than happy to recommend not only Dina but also the excellent and prompt service we received from you. Thank you for everything.
Just wanted to say thank you for your interesting tour on Tuesday we really enjoyed it.
We are leaving shortly for Venice and will have fond memories of our stay in Barcelona.
We would like to thank you for being our guide in Barcelona. Our trip was enriched by your knowledge and
fun personality. Loved climbing to the top of Parc Guell.
Ken and I felt a great connection with you and we were sorry you couldn’t be our guide for the rest of our
trip in Spain.
After Barcelona we also explored Madrid, Granada, Seville, Toledo and then went to Morocco.
Also, thank you Michal for being such a wonderful manager.
I have given the name of your company and have recommended Adi to 3 of my friends in Sydney. They are
planning to come in September and October.
If either of you are any time in Florida, please don’t hesitate to email us….We would love to show you
around. This is not idle talk.
Warm regards and all the best
Yitzy and I much enjoyed our tour last week
Our two days gave us a little flavor of the great city you live in
Your knowledge gave us great insight into the history of Barcelona
Mazel tov on your nephew’s birth
