David, our ToursByLocals guide, was nothing short of amazing. We did the Gothic Quarters and Sagrada Familia tour on short notice and he managed to get tickets for us to visit Sagrada Familia. His knowledge is impressive. He took us to several hidden gems and treated us to a nice surprise. His photos of the Sagrada Familia to show the lighting at different times of the day and year gives a full experience. He even sent us extensive recommendations for restaurants the next day. Thanks David.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot, Caroline and the rest of the group (Zoe, "Pricess Fiona", "Kash" and "Jose"). It was a fun tour which I enjoyed a lot and I'm glad to hear you did too. Enjoy the rest of your holidays and hope to see you again in the future when you return to Barcelona. Best regards, David C

Just before our trip, I had a medical issue that made it difficult to walk. David was so accommodating in changing the itinerary for our day with him. He went above and beyond to make sure we had a memorable experience in Barcelona. He is so knowledgeable about the Sagrada Familia. He gave us a new understanding of the church, people and customs. We'll never forget our time with him and if we ever return, will be sure to book him first thing. Thanks David!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your review. I hope to see you and Jim again in the future and next time we will be seeing what we had to skip on the walking part fo the tour and might be we can also go together and see Tarragona. Best regards, David C.

David, is a tour guide you need to be with. Two of us had been to Barcelona in 2017, but he managaed to help us discover new and interesting insights to the City. He was patient with his being asked many questions with insightful knowledgeable answers. We had a wonderful time touring and he manage to find something new and interesting for us around each corner. He mastered the tour with ease and made sure all of us were included in his narratives. He left nothing to chance. Again, thank you David.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot, Gerald, it was very nice meeting you all and I'm glad I was able to surprise you with new places that you didn't know from your previous visit to Barcelona. Best regards, David C.

David took us on an amazing tour of the Gothic Quarter. This area is filled with so much more history than meets the eye. Our kids (14, 13 and 9) really enjoyed learning about the different areas of the city. David is very knowledgeable and was great when the kids had questions. However, nothing can quite compare to La Sagrada Familia! David navigated us through the story of the basilica, through the architects' eyes, and how both the outside and inside of this spectacular basilica reveal its story.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi there Stephanie, muchas gracias for your words. Your kids actually posed some interesting questions, I was surprised that at their age they were asking such things! Best regards, David.
Sean McBrideUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with David. Our group consisted of 11 people aged 81 to 11 and David was able to keep everyone engaged and entertained. He knows the city well and had great stories to tell that kept the tour lighthearted and gave us extra insight into the old Barcelona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sean for such a great review. It was great having the chance to guide 3 generations of your family and would have loved having had more time to listen to your mum about your grandpa, their life in Barcelona in the postwar period and his work for Walt Disney! Best regards, David.
Had a great time walking around Barcelona w David & visiting Sagrada Familia. A valuable experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your comments Michelle. I'm glad to hear you and your boys enjoyed the tour. Best regards.
Good guide, knowledgeable, pleasant and organized.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Barbara for your comments. It was nice spending a bit of time with you and Traty despite of the cold and rainy day. Enjoy the rest of your stay and your trip to Portugal too! David

The tour could not have gone better. David was easy to coordinate with and extremely knowledgeable. We took the walking tour that culminated in the tour of Sagrada Familia. Both parts were entertaining as well as enlightening. I highly recommend hiring David and would absolutely tour with him again. Our entire group had a great time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Than's Charles for such a great review! It was a pleasure and fun showing you a bit of Barcelona. Best regards from Barcelona, David C.
