Stacie SchmidUnited States
Thank you Jim! Our tour was five stars!! You were so knowledgeable and we loved that we got to see things off the beaten path that the locals enjoy. It was a great day. Thanks again!! Stacie S
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Stacie, a fun visit all round.
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

Jim met our plane, took us around Barcelona, including the long stop at Sagrada Familia that we'd requested, and then dropped us off at the cruise port. Though we'd visited Barcelona on two previous trips, we learned many new things about the city and its history from Jim. He's a great guide who communicated his knowledge and love of his adopted city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you to you, too, for a most enjoyable and stimulating morning.

Terrific introduction to Barcelona. Jim sprinkled history, politics, current events and much more into our three hour tour. Very personable. He zipped us around to the key sites so we got up close to everything. Very good pacing for us. We strongly recommend Jim for any visitor. When we return to Barcelona, we hope Jim will be available again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dick and Bonnie, many thanks, I hope you will come back again, and with time to see inside the Sagrada Famila for sure. Jim

Jim is an excellent guide. He showed up at the hotel before time, was very professional and courteous, and helped us make the most of our time in Barcelona by showing us the highlights of the city up close.

We enjoyed an informative tour with Jim, during which we got to see important buildings and to learn the importance of various events to Barcelona's history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Linda.
Jim had let us know that we could do some of, or most of, the tour by car and this was wonderful. He met us at our hotel. He was exceptionally knowledgeable and we learned much more than expected. Jim routed us to places we had not seen as we had been to Barcelona before. It all worked out really well and he left us downtown at a great spot for lunch, from which we could get back to the hotel without getting lost. A great visit!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Robert, it was a lovely morning exploring the city with you both and discussing all manner of subjects, very enriching. Enjoy your travels, Jim
