Barcelona is family friendly and a great experience for kids of all ages.
This episode is all about Barcelona, Spain for families.
If you’re planning a family vacation to Spain, be sure to include Barcelona! Barcelona also makes a great option when you have just a week in the winter or spring.
Nancy Daum Dailey – Founder & CEO of Enchanting Barcelona Tours
Originally from the US, Nancy caught the travel bug early when she spent a semester abroad in her sophomore year of college and ended up finishing her college years in London.
When she was first out of college, Nancy taught English to foreigners before moving into the world of educational tourism in 1998.
Nancy started her career in tourism by working with a leading educational travel company, ACIS, as a tour manager. She found this to be a really rewarding experience, as most of the teenagers were traveling abroad for the first time.
Nancy truly saw first hand how travel changes lives—especially for families. It may be a child’s first time abroad or they could be an experienced traveler, but Barcelona is new to them and that one tour could be a life changing experience.
“When you are on vacation, every moment counts,” Nancy says. “It is the importance to details that make all the difference! With educational games that get them involved, kids have fun discovering new places.”
For families heading to Barcelona, this is a good starting point. It gives an overview of the major sites you’ll want to visit, where to eat, and where to stay.
