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.

Jim was absolutely fantastic--knowledgeable, flexible, thoughtful...His insights into the history, art, architecture, and contemporary culture of Barcelona added so much to our understanding of the city we were visiting. A group of seven professional historians, we had high standards for our trip and Jim met and surpassed them all! We can't recommend him more highly!

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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Paige, I'm glad you both enjoyed the visit.

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.

Jim was one of the finest, nicest and most knowledgeable guides that I have ever met. His knowledge of the customs, art and architecture of Barcelona was encyclopaedic. My wife and I spent a really pleasant day with Jim.

Shekar ChandrasekaranUnited States
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.

Jim did a really nice day in Barcelona for us that included places we had never been, despite the many times we have been there. He also arranged tickets for Sagrada Familia for the perfect time of day. We would book Jim again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Mary.

It's hard to imagine a better guide than Jim D. He is well-educated, well-informed, thoroughly knowledgeable, extremely personable, cooperative, kind and patient. Born, raised and educated in Britain, he has an excellent command of E english. Having lived in Barcelona for many years, he knows the city intimately.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: One of those tours you want to extend indefinitely, so many interesting things to talk about. Thanks to both of you for such kind comments.

Jim was a wonderful guide. He was flexible, extremely knowledgeable, and a delight to be with. He made our visit to Barcelona excellent. There were 4 of us and we all agreed that we couldn't imagine having a better guide. He was the best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: For me too, the most enjoyable way to show the city, with interested, informed companions. Many thanks.
Jim was a fantastic host. His thorough knowledge of the history and flavour of Barcelona was outstanding. We shared many laughs and would highly recommend Jim as an excellent guide. Jim was our first Tours By Locals guide - we have already booked our second guide and will ensure we keep this service handy for future travel plans.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Frances, It was a memorable tour, as you say lots of laughs and always interesting spending time with you. Yours, Jim

We gave Jim quite a challenge: we engaged him to pick us up,with our luggage,from our hotel, plan an 8 hour tour which 2 eighty year old+ clients could undertake and enjoy, pick them up, with their luggage, from their hotel, and then deliver us and our luggage to the airport. He was kind, attentive, and knowledgeable, and we praise him highly. He brightened our last day in glorious Barcelona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Zvi, it was a privilege and a pleasure to spend the day with you both, I wish there was still the opportunity to talk with you about so many interesting things and enjoy your company for more time. Best wishes and many more travels.

We spent a wonderful day touring with Jim. He is friendly, knowledgable, & an excellent driver. He helped us make the best use of our time to see sights we had not seen on a previous visit. We wish we had booked him for two days. A great guy & we would highly recommend him. Thanks, Jim.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dennis, did have a very enjoyable day out, saw lots of the country outside the city as well as the top of Montserrat. Jim
