Testimonials

Some kind words from our satisfied clients

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Barcelona, adored the Gaudi cathedral, loved the concert hall. Our two lunches and tapas tour were excellent and gave us a wonderful introduction and experience of Barcelona’s food and bars. Santa Maria del Mar was quite breath taking. 5 stars and a big thank you from us both.

    Mr and Mrs I. Barnett Towcester, UK

  • Barcelona Inside and Out organised a great food tour of the city for a group of our chefs. Anthony’s detailed knowledge of the restaurant and food scene enabled us to visit a number of hidden gems that we would never have been able to find on our own. He guided us effortlessly around the city making it a wonderfully relaxing experience despite how much we packed in a short time, all helped by his calm confident approach and his extensive local contacts. We will be using him again.

  • My wife and I and our 18-month old son have just returned from ten marvellous days in and around Barcelona, and we feel nourished with culture, food, greatly enjoyed ourselves and feel completely rested. Anyone with small children will realise what a feat this is.
    We spent an incredible three days in Barcelona in a lovely, friendly hotel. We saw Gaudi’s House, his park, went to the History museum with all the Roman ruins below, had lunch down at the beach. On day three we went Monserrat, the monastery in the mountains, where we spent the night and saw the incredible museum full of impressionist and modern paintings. In the morning we took the cable car to the top mountain and spent a lovely two hours visiting the old hermit’s dwellings.
    We returned to Barcelona for a gourmet tapas tour and a Civil War tour and we also went to see the Castellers at their club build their incredible human towers.
    All this was beautifully organised, including fast track tickets for the museums, tour guides (which we had to ourselves), our restaurant bookings, the hotels and so much more besides including cots, a lovely babysitter.
    If you want to experience Barcelona in depth with complete flexibility and with the help of someone with 20 years of local knowledge, you will be hard pushed to find a better service than that of Anthony Eastwood and Barcelona Inside and out.
    Having worked in the travel industry myself I know that organising something at this level is like a duck swimming – the bit you don’t see makes the difference and Anthony does this beautifully.

  • Anthony was involved from the outset in organising a trip for twelve friends to celebrate my birthday. My requirements were both specific – I knew what I hoped to do – and vague in that I didn’t have the local knowledge to know how, when and where we would be able to fit in the events and fiestas we wanted to visit. Barcelona Inside & Out’s local knowledge and expertise allowed them to create the itinerary we wanted, make the hotel and other ground arrangements to fit and then ensure all went to plan perfectly. I would certainly recommend Barcelona Inside & Out to anyone planning a trip to Barcelona or Catalonia – all the more so if you want something a little beyond the “standard package”.

    Mr M Quillian Buckinghamshire, UK

  • I just wanted to thank you for organising our trip to Barcelona. The hotel was excellent and very central which enabled us to walk to a lot of the sights. The guided tour round the cava vineyard was fascinating and the lunch afterwards delicious.

    Mrs G. Cowen Daventry, UK

  • For a recent work trip, my colleagues and I (around 30 people) visited Barcelona in October. Anthony from Barcelona Inside and Out was very hands on from the beginning to the end. We had explained to him what we were hoping to do for the weekend and he provided us with a tailored package to suit our requirements. He was extremely helpful in the months leading up to our trip, no request was too big. He was happy to answer any questions we had and made us feel at ease at all times. He booked some amazing restaurants for us, and gave us some great recommendations for bars/nightlife. He also booked a private boat tour for one of the evenings which was fantastic… this a must do! We went on a walking tour one of the days, which was very insightful in to the history of Barcelona. The company has multi-lingual tour guides, which is very useful. I would highly recommend using the services of Barcelona Inside and Out if you are planning a group trip to Barcelona, you can sit back and relax knowing you’re in safe hands.

  • Anthony guided us through the sights, sounds and tastes of Barcelona with confidence and he knew all the right places, which enabled us to get that authentic experience.

    Mark Walker TSC Foods, UK

  • Your inside knowledge steered us in the right direction and away from the obvious tourist trail. The accommodation you selected was characterful and charming as well as being perfectly located for all the sites.

    Mr and Mrs J. Service Devon, UK

  • We had a most enjoyable and different day with Anthony. Having done most of the ‘must see’ places ourselves, Anthony took us on a walking tour of the gothic quarter, showing us all the merchants’ houses and decorated courtyards. We tasted hams and olive oils in a local market with a wonderful roof. we then went on a delicious and interesting ‘tapas crawl’ to all his favourite bars where he was always greeted as local friend.

    Mr and Mrs C. Hunt Northamptonshire, UK

  • A great place to visit again and again and we could have missed so much had it not been for Barcelona Inside and Out. Their knowledge of the city and understanding of what we wanted was excellent.

    Mr S. Goodfellow Cambridge, UK

  • We asked Barcelona Inside and Out to organize a weekend in the Priorat for 3 families (6 adults and 5 children aged between 6 and 9 years). Anthony made several proposals for accommodation, activities and restaurants. We selected the best fit for us and he took care of all bookings. It was a fantastic weekend. Both the hotel and the suggested restaurants exceeded our expectations; for the activities, we focused on visits to wineries and these brilliantly were chosen with families in mind (entertainment and education for the children while adults enjoyed the visit). A perfect plan! (Translated from Spanish)
