An insightful tour & lecture about Spain and the Jews who lived there

An insightful tour through the Gothic quarter about the history of Spain in general and the history of Jewish people who lived there. Dina has in depth knowledge on history and is clearly passionate about it. She conveyed this complex history story simply, from different points of view, knew to answer questions and connect the timeline to other historical events around the world in general and to Jewish events in particular. Dina's map reference as well and standing there on the stone floor conveyed the history in a very personal and real way. Dina shows you how Jewish life in Spain was good & flourishing - the strong Jewish presence in Spain of scholars like the Ramban. Before the horrible inquisition in 1492 that only ended over 300 years later.

A perfect tour with lots of new knowledge

Dina, if I spell her name properly, is a nice person with a huge amount of historical and geographical data that she transfers in a fluent and easily understandable manner. Could we have her e-mail address - we forgot to ask for it on site - to keep contact? Thank you. Márta and George

Excellent guide and fantastic service from Barcelona Dreaming

We really enjoyed this guided walking tour. Our guide Teresa was very knowledgeable and made the hole experience extremely interesting and fun. We had a mix up with the arrangements, our mistake, and Barcelona Dreaming and Michal could not ahem been more helpful. Highly recommended.

Maria was consistently thoughtful & knowledgable!

We had many private/small group tours during our week long visit to Barcelona and Maria was by far the best! She was knowledgable and thoughtful at each stop. She shared fun and interesting facts on the bus ride and at each beautiful medieval village. Thank you Maria!

Only partial tour, due to public holiday

It was May 1, a legal holiday. Our guide, Dina, did her best to provide a meaningful tour, but many of the places we were to visit were closed. It would have been helpful to let us know in advance....we could have booked the tour a day earlier or later
