Francisco M.

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain

Hi !!. I'm Francisco M, experienced local tour guide for private tours, only your group.

Born and raised in Barcelona at the neighborhood of Gracia.

A traveller too that visited Europe, North America, Mexico, Belize, North Africa, Thailand, Bali, Philippines, Vietnam.

Also spent 8 years in England, graduated in a combined degree (Film and Arts).

In 2010, became a development tourism agent, where I gained the skills to develop areas and design tours for specific client's needs.

One of the best tour guide in Barcelona, Spain. Delivered over 1, 000 Private Tours here at Toursbylocals with 5 stars rating.

TOP 10 classification at worldwide level of the 2018's, 2017's, 2016's, 2015's, 2014's BUSIEST TOURIST GUIDES (published by ToursByLocals BLOG) among 3000 guides in more than 150 countries!

Sharp on the details to spot many thing that the naked eye tends to miss. I will be showing you my city and explaining the history of the neighborhoods, giving you a lot of information of the sights, buildings and their artists/architects/engineers.

With me we will discover our most important architect Antoni Gaudi and his work, his organics, religious and masonic influences. Where he comes out with the idea of the four arm cross coronating all his buildings with actual examples and much more. . .

Taking advantage of my professional photography background if you wish I will be taken some pictures of you with my camera from your visit in Barcelona and sends them to you as a keepsake at no extra cost.

Those smiles and memories does not have a price.

At the end of the tour I will help you to plan and what to see if you staying longer days in Barcelona.

In my experience as a tour guide and in life made me understand that each person or group is unique and what is fast for ones is slow for others. One of my skills is to quickly get to know people and develop a fluid and open communication to understand their needs and adapt the tour to them.

So feel free to send me a message if you have any questions.

And above all,

Welcome to Barcelona and enjoy your trip !!!.

A Recent Review of this guide

This was an excellent tour by Francisco. A fantastic 4 hours as Francisco is very knowledgable about Madrid, Monserrat, and the surrounding area. In addition, the pictures he took we're great ...much better than we would have taken with our phones.
