Tours of the Jewish Quarter in Barcelona

Has anyone had experience with Barcelona Dreaming or Urban Cultours?

We're using Dominique Blinder's Urban Cultours in September. This company has been in business for quite a while.
We haven't had any experience with Barcelona Dreaming.

For a full day (9-10 hr.) Jewish Heritage tour both inside and outside of the city, to Barcelona's Call, Girona's Call and Besalú, there's also the new "Jewish Catalonia: Hardships & Triumps" excursion offered by Spanish Trails.

We are planning on a day trip to Girona, so would probably just want the Barcelona tour. We are also going in September. I will look at the tour you are taking. What does she charge for that?
Dominique was recommended to us by Micaela Pavoncello (jewishroma.com), our wonderful tour guide in Rome.

A rich Jewish history in Barcelona, and you should also see the old Jewish cemetery on the landmark Montjuic hill with all the museums, theaters, Olympic arenas, greens, and the Castell on the top. The name is most likely refering to the cemetery and the hill as "The Mountain of the Jews" in Catalan: http://www.jpost.com/Travel/Travel-N...wish-Barcelona

dro,
Dominique offers two tours:
a 2 hr. 30 min. walking tour of Jewish sites in the Gothic Quarter
a 3 hr. 30 minute tour that includes a visit to the Shoah Memoral on Montjüic and a stop at the Jewish cemetary there, plus the walking tour of the Old Jewish Quarter visiting the remains of the Middle Ages synagogue restored as a museum.

You will need to contact her directly for pricing for your dates.

Dominique also does offer a full day, 9 hr touring program of Girona and Besalú, which I know you are not interested in, as you're going to Girona independently, but I just mention it for others who might be interested.

Robert2016 I misread your answer thinking Dominique offered the full day tour. Thanks for your comments on several of my posts.

Which tour is you taking?
BTW, she offered us Sept 18 morning tour with another couple. Is that you?

No, the other couple isn't us.
We've arranged the 2 1/2 hr tour of the Jewish heritage sites in the Gothic Quarter.
