Jim was a great guide for our party of four ladies. He was very good with Catalan history and culture having married into a Catalan family. We very much enjoyed our day out to Montserrat and Colonia Guell and having lunch at a local restaurant in Colonia Guell. Jim was most agreeable, knowledgeable and gave us a very good tour.

We spent the day with Jim, exploring Barcelona on foot. He was well prepared and very knowledgable about Barcelona as well as the history of Spain. He never rushed the tour and could answer all questions. We saw the best of Barcelona and learned many new impressive things about the city. It was a full day but very much worth it.

We had a great day with Jim. We took a car and walking trip all around Barcelona. We started the day with a scenic overview and learned a lot about the layout and history of Barcelona. Then we drive through the Olympic village. We spent the rest of the day walking through various parts of the city and then toured Sag Familia. It was a great day. He moved at our pace and helped us understand the history, politics, and culture of the region. We highly recommend Jim.

Fantastic Tour! Jim was extremely knowledgeable and easy to talk to. We wanted to see the Abbey of Montserrat, but also visit the Coves del Salnitre, within Montserrat and he was able to make this happen and be our translator as the guide through the caves only spoke spanish. This was my kids' favourite tour. Jim was enthusiastic and informative and we all had a really great day! I would highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Corrie, it was great fun with you all and I'm delighted the whole family enjoyed it.

Jim was the most excellent tour guide. We walked from one end of Barcelona to the other and he pointed out many buildings and told us about the history of each area. He provided much insight about Barcelona and its fascinating history. He customized the tour to our liking and we did the Familia Sagrada on our own which was a wise choice.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Kristy, it was a pleasure showing you both around the city.

Jim planned a great day for us in Barcelona. He arranged for the entrance passes ahead of time for the Gaudi house and the church. He met us at the cruise dock where we disembarked. He drove us around the city for a bit and then we parked and walked as well. He was a pleasant companion and fun to talk to. All in all we accomplished everything we wanted to on our one planned day in the city.

My six traveling companions and I have just returned from a delightful trip to Spain. One of the highlights of our trip was a visit to Barcelona. Jim, our guide from ToursbyLocals, took us on a walking tour of Barcelona sharing its history and explaining its varied architecture. Jim was a knowledgeable and gracious ambassador of his adopted city. We felt well-oriented to Barcelona after our tour ready to explore Barcelona further on our own. Thanks, Jim.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jane, It was a privilege meeting you all and I wish I could have spent more time with you. Best wishes, Jim

Jim was very knowledgeable and made our day complete by being flexible. Instead of visiting a winery which was one his tour stops, we asked and he changed it to visit a mountain top (Tibidabo Amusement Park area next to the Neo-Gothic Sacred Heart Church) that has an amazing view of Barcelona, perfection! The rest of the tour was great visiting the interesting Colonia Guell and the beautiful Montserrat and its amazing views. As we returned, Jim stopped for a quick picture by the bullet shaped Agbar Torres

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bruce, Fondly memorable for me too, I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Jim

At the outset, we asked Jim for an overview so we could get a sense of the city--and, as we travelled through the tour, we got his suggestions as to areas and sites we could explore on our own in more depth on the remaining days of our visit . Through a combination of driving and walking, we got that and more-the more being his wonderful knowledge and historical perspective that he provided in a very personable and enjoyable way. We could not be more pleased for the time we spent with Jim in Barcelona

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ricki, You must come back! It was such an interesting morning, I wish we could have spent more time talking about the city and all the other things that those conversations sparked. Have a happy holiday! Jim

We requested for Jim's guidance in Barcelona for the whole day. We landed on a day where there were public transportation strikes and the governmental meetings etc. Jim brought his car and took us around Barcelona and explained very well all the important things. We had additional days to ourselves at Barcelona and Jim was very helpful in planning our other days and suggesting places to go around. His guidance so was consummate, that we never took a taxi for the next few days and visited all the place

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Shekar, it was a great pleasure to take your lovely family round the city, and I'm delighted you enjoyed the tour.
