A Recent Review of this tour

Francisco was the perfect guide for leading us through medieval Barcelona and later, on our tour of Montserrat. A native of Catalonia, Francisco is incredibly knowledgeable and full of insights. He shares historical facts as well as less known aspects such as where to enjoy the local cuisine. Without a doubt, we recommend visitors consider calling upon Francisco.
