Francisco M.

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain

Hi !!. I'm Francisco M, experienced local tour guide for private tours, only your group, with 7 years in the tourism industry in Barcelona.

Born and raised in Barcelona at the neighbourhood of Gracia, next to Gaudi's Park, Park Güell, my playground as a boy.

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

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.

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 neighbourhoods, 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 that coronates all his buildings with actual examples and much more. . .

Taking advantage of my photography background if you wish I will be taken some pictures of you 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

Francisco is friendly and knowledgeable and very accommodating to my kids (age 10 and 7) who are not the best travelers as the weather was hot and they are a bit jet lagged. But I had a great time and had a great overview of the city so I know what to do for the next couple of days with my family here. I will highly recommend Francisco!
