      Interesting and engaging walking tour
      Adi was an engaging and friendly tour guide and answered all the questions we had . Would definitely recommend him for the Jewish Quarter tour. He also told me he does many other of the tours and is well educated.

      Informative Experience
      Deena was very knowledge and pleasant. Even though we had a walking tour of the Gothic Quarter earlier, we learned new things from this tour. Donna pointed out things we had not seen before that had Jewish significance. We had passed by the area of the old Jewish ghetto before without realizing its historical significance. I highly recommend this tour if you are interested in the Jewish history of Barcelona.

      Learn about the Jewish history of Barcelona with Dina
      My daughter and I loved our tour with Dina Arad. She was so nice and accommodating, and very knowledgeable. She shared her love of Barcelona and it’s Jewish history with us, giving us so much information but in a digestible way. She also organized when she spoke in line with what she showed us very well. Highly recommend - enjoy your time with Dina.

      This is our second time to Barcelona and our second time we used Barcelona dreaming for a walking tour. Dina was enlightening, filling us in on history of Europe and Barcelona. We highly recommend.

      Old Jewish Quarter in Barcelona
      We had such an interesting walking tour with Adi Mahler. He pointed out such interesting things that we would never have found on our own. His knowledge is incredible and he can answer any questions. Adi also has a great sense of humour

      Excellent tour with experienced guide
      We really had an amazing time with our tour guide Mar. She was very informed of the areas we toured and made the entire 5 hours very easy to navigate. She made excellent suggestions on lunch and snacks as well. The tour was just as the description stated. Excellent transportation service as well. Picked up in a very clean van with friendly driver. I would highly recommend.

      Our families best day of touring spent with Dafna and Dina!
      Our family of 9 travelers (7 adults and 2 small children) spent the entire day seeing Barcelona with Dafna and Dina. All I could say was it was the most wonderful day. We spent the morning hours with Dafna walking through the old town and Jewish Quarter. Dafna was so knowledgeable about Jewish History and made everything come to life. She held our attention the entire time, took us to unexpected places, and was a real delight. After lunch (which Dina had arranged for us) we spent the remainder of the day with Dina touring the important sites of Barcelona. She was a real pleasure to deal with through all of the planning process, and the day we spent with her could not have been better. We felt so fortunate to have had seen everything we did, in the allotted time, and with two such special people!

      Don’t Miss This Experiences
      The day before our tour we walked around the area of our hotel. We marveled at beautiful buildings and thoroughfares. During our tour we learned about what we had simply “looked at”without the knowledge imparted by Dina. We want to thank Dina, for the wonderful tour we had today. What impressed us was not only the valuable history she imparted but the manner in which she approached the subjects. She was very prepared and I could tell by the smile on her face that she really enjoyed her job. Her “stories” helped to bring the information to life. Her enthusiasm was contagious! Again, thank you very much for an enjoyable two hours….

      The BEST week!
      Michal was amazing! She helped us plan our amazing honeymoon. We had the best tours and the guides were so knowledgeable, informative, fun and left everlasting memories. Our entire week was planned perfectly and stress-free. From the logistics of transportation to the different cities, and meeting our needs, Michal was spot on

    I hired them for a 4 pm tour. I called to ask if they,perhaps, could meet us early and they couldn’t which was fine and I totally understood. Michal said someone would be there at 4:30. I had booked a tour for 4 PM not 4:30. Per all the paperwork sent the tour started at 4pm. I shared that was not the correct meeting time. Normally 30 mins wouldn’t have been an issue but had I not reached out about meeting earlier I wouldn’t have known that she was not sending someone until 430. Normally a late start is not an issue but we had an appointment at a specific time later that after noon so we need to start promptly at 4 PM. she was unwilling to send someone there on time. I asked her to cancel the tour and refund our money because we had somewhere else to be. Micah asked if we wanted to cancel the tour and sadly we needed to because of the late start and her mistake. There are many other tours and companies that do similar tours some advice to you is to use a different company that is more reliable.If Michal credits our payment I will gladly update this review. Please know that if you book this tour you must be extremely flexible on start time and be willing to wait until Mical is ready to send someone to be your guide.

    Dear Kim, Thank you for taking the time to communicate with us about your experience. It is critical to us that we understand our clients and the ways in which we failed to meet your needs. I am truly sorry we were not able to provide you with the BarcelonaDreaming experience and that it caused unnecessary complications for you and your schedule. I contacted all of our guides to try to arrange for someone to come at 4 PM, but they were all previously engaged, so unfortunately we were not able to provide you with an experience. We absolutely understand this was a limitation in our ability to meet your needs and your timeframe. We will offer a full refund, and appreciate your understanding and willingness to update the review. I am personally invested now in making sure this does not happen again to any of our clients in the future. My most sincere apologies again, Michal

    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. It was a waste of time and money.

    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.

    We recently took a tour of the Jewish quarter in Barcelona with Dina from Barcelona Dreaming Tours, and it was a fantastic experience! Dina's passion for the city and deep knowledge of its Jewish history and culture brought the streets and landmarks to life. Her warmth and friendliness made the tour feel like exploring the city with a knowledgeable friend, making it an unforgettable experience. Highly recommend this tour!

    I wanted to do a Jewish tour when we were in Barcelona and an online search turned up this company. My husband and I decided on taking the Jewish Quarter walking tour. We were aware that many of the historical sites have disappeared through the ages but decided to learn what we could. The company was very responsive and we had no trouble making a reservation. Our tour guide was ready for us a the appointed time and place. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the Jews of Barcelona. There was plenty to see plus a few unexpected surprises. She had a great sense of humor and it was a lot of fun despite the seriousness of the subject. I highly recommend this tour.

    Our family of six (one teenager, two parents, and three grandparents) enjoyed our tour. Our guide, Teresa, was extremely knowledgeable about the history and locations and did a great job pacing the tour. If you’re interested in visiting the Jewish Quarter, due to the winding streets and lack of physical markers (due to the various expulsions), better to have a guide. Highly recommend.

    Our tour guide Adi provided a thorough history of the the Barcelona Jewish Quarter, tracing it's importance and significance in Jewish history. Adi is knowledgeable, personable, engaging, quick on his feet with a wink in his eye, and thoroughly experienced. We also visited the Jewish Quarters of Girona and Besalu in a one day combined trip, where we had meaningful spiritual and historically based experiences.

    We visited Barcelona as Spain started opening up post covid. A few places were still closed (for example the Synagogue) but we met Dina and walked around and had a wonderful time. Dina is very knowledgeable and likeable. It was a pleasure to have her as our guide.
    Michal was very responsive and patient and helped me work around our schedule to figure out timing for the tour.

    Dina was our tour guide and she was amazing!
    We are Jewish History lovers and were thrilled that DIna was able to enthusiastically add so much information about Spanish Jewry from before the Inquisition and until today. We did the tour in Hebrew, eventhough Dina is perfectly fluent in ENglish, Spanish , and even Catalan.
    DIna was very accomodating. ALthough we arrived half an hour late for our private tour, she toured with us for more than two hours, and even found a quiet spot for us to daven the MIncha prayers.

    We had a very insightful and meaningful tour of the Barcelona Jewish Quarter with our guide Dafna. She is very knowledgeable of the complex history of Spanish Jewry as well as current status of Jewish life there. This tour was a highlight of our time in Spain. Highly recommend for anyone interested in a better understanding of Spanish Jewish history.
