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.

Wonderful two days. We enjoyed eating our way through Barcelona and learning about its history. I highly recommend him. My only regret is we didn't have enough time as we should have booked a third day with him as we had so much fun. Time does fly when having fun. You will be fortunate to spend time with him as he goes above and beyond to make sure you have a truly memorable experience regardless of what you do.

Francisco gave us an excellent tour of Barcelona. He organized the tour perfectly so that we saw as much as possible in the allotted time. He has a thorough knowledge of, and about Barcelona. To stand in front of a landmark, listening to Francisco, was almost like being present at that place years or centuries ago. Something else that we liked about Francisco is that he asked questions to keep us fully involved in his presentation. At the end, he extended his tour to show us one more attraction!

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.

Really great day with Francisco. We've used him twice now for two different tours and he's been equally excellent. He's a knowledgeable and friendly guide. He's also a fantastic photographer! By the way, the Dali Museum is one of a kind and Girona is worth the drive!

Francisco was a wonderful tour guide! He was incredibly informed on all the aspects of the Sagrada Familia. He showed us quite a few different architectural styles of Barcelona. Very fascinating! Plus he also gave us the added pleasure of taking photos of my husband and I in different locations in Barcelona. It was a truly great experience!

Francisco was fabulous! He worked with me before our trip to customize our tour (3 of us--me, my husband and our 16 year old son). We wanted to hike a little, take the funicular, see the basilica and listen to the choir. And we did everything!! Our tour lasted about 6 hours--starting at 9AM with a pickup at our hotel. It was just the right amount of time as after Francisco dropped us at our hotel, we still had plenty of time to walk and explore more of the city and enjoy a great dinner.

Francisco was a wonderful guide for a great tour! We spend a long, leisurely day learning about Cava and then touring Monserrat and seeing the Black Madonna. Francisco was very patient with us, as we tended to get stuck in the gift shops and also stopped at the (delicious) cheese vendors. Our local lunch was fabulous. He was full of interesting information, and was very organized. The car was roomy and comfortable for four. Highly recommend both Francisco as a guide and the Cava/Monserrat tour!

One of the best guides we have ever had! This tour was great fun! Our guide, Francisco, made sure we were dressed warmly enough. He picked us up from our hotel, took us in his nice, roomy car for a fun day of touring. We went to the Cava manufacturing tour and had a couple of tastings! Followed by a wonderful lunch at a charming restaurant. Francisco then took us to Montserrrat. He knew so much and showed us everything he could. We drove back to our hotel and Francisco dropped us off at the door!

Francisco is the best tour guide we have ever had. He is knowledgeable, professional and fun, thanks for all the photos you took. We will 100% use Francisco again. If you choose a different tour guide you will be missing out on a great time. Thanks for all the great laughs.

We highly recommend Francisco! He was prompt and communicative regarding the logistics of the day but was flexible if we needed more time to explore, take photos, etc. Prior to booking, he allowed us to change the itinerary to fit our needs (wine instead of cava). Francisco is very friendly and experienced the tour with us - he's very professional but not at all stiff. The tour day was long but he made the day flow easily. Also, the photos he took were a great momento!

The tour was great! Our guide was very knowledgeable. He went out of his way to accommodate us. He went the extra mile and took several great pictures of us. We felt very comfortable and safe as we traveled up the mountain with our guide.

Francisco was everything we could ask for in a guide. We had the challenge of navigating the city because of the recent strike and protest and he did so expertly ! Saw all of the sights on our bucket list with a perfectly delivered narrative. Thanks for a great time !! Would recommend Francisco to everyone !

This was the second half of a full day with our knowledgeable guide, Francisco. Following a delightful lunch at a local Tapas restaurant, we toured the old city quarter on foot, providing a blend of ancient Roman columns, 14th century structures, and the old Jewish section, into 19th century Barcelona. We had a full, most enjoyable day.

Our group of six were very pleased to have had the services and historical knowledge of our guide Francisco. His tour of the modern architecture and city art of modern Barcelona, with its beautiful parks and avenues was thoroughly enjoyable. His passion for the city, especially the spectacular Parc Guell, overlooking the entire city, was great. We had a full day , including a tasty Tapas lunch!

We loved Monserrat & highly recommend this tour. The day was well organized and Francisco was very pleasant & knowledgeable about Spanish history. He offered suggestions about which activity to do first to avoid the crowds (thus allowing us more time to enjoy this beautiful area!). He took photos of us at various locations. His photos were the best of our trip, we will treasure the memories of this beautiful day. There is a lot to see when visiting Spain, but Monserrat's splendor is a must see!

Francisco took our party of four on a wonderful tour of the highlights of Barcelona. He was very knowledgeable, and when we finished our tour, we felt educated about all the sites that we visited. Francisco was professional, courteous, and friendly. By the end of our tour, we bid adios to a new friend. I highly recommend Francisco. In fact, we have friends traveling to Barcelona in July, and we are going to tell them to book their tour with Francisco!

Francisco is a great guide. He is well versed in all aspects of his native city and country. He speaks English very well. He is friendly and accommodating, as evidenced by the help he gave to my wife who tours in a manual wheelchair that Francisco helped to push. He showed us all of the places of interest that this limitation imposed. We spent two days with Francisco touring Barcelona and the surrounding countryside, and enjoyed both days immensely.
