Albert CohenUnited States
He is patient, caring and knowledgeable about the subject matter. His expansive knowledge of religion, architecture and history makes our tour enjoyable and extremely interesting. We enjoyed this trip tremendously because of him.
Sheila AtwellUnited States
Francesc was an absolutely wonderful guide. Our flight was delayed by nearly 12 hours and he was able to accommodate two tours all in one day - endeavoring especially hard to get a refund for some tickets that had been purchased ahead of time. He knows so much about the city and special details of all the monuments we visited - it made our short stay in Barcelona very special. Muchos gracias!
Ashley EdwardsUnited States
Francesc was delightful. He has a great personality and a clear love of Barcelona. He even managed to make the tour fun for my 3 teenage daughters, which is saying a lot. He tailored the tour to exactly what we wanted to see...mixing in a little history with the fun food markets in the old town. Francesc is very enthusiastic and knowledgable about his city!
Roni RihnUnited States
This was our second day with Francesc and another fantastic tour. We learned so much about Gaudi and Francesc explained everything in such amazing details. He made sure that we stood in the best places for photographs and he got us into each attraction without waiting in lines. My friends and I are so thankful that we had him for two days to discover Barcelona. Thank you Francesc for your warmth, knowledge, and most of all for your passion . You went beyond our expectations.
Jack McElroyUnited States
This is the second time we have toured Barcelona with Francisc. He is without a doubt the most personable and knowledgeable tour guide we have ever had the pleasure of using. We did a two day tour of Barcelona and then on the third day he drove us to Montserrat in his new SUV. Thanks to his knowledge of the crowds at that very popular site we were able to beat the long lines and see everything we had hoped to on our day at Montserrat.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to see you again, in this occasion with your friends. Besides I was very happy that in these holidays you could finally visit Montserrat. Montserrat is very crowded in high season and it was a great idea to anticipate the tour 30 minutes (now I have rescheduled the tour in this way). A big hug from Barcelona to all of you and I hope our path will cross again Francesc
AnnaMarie FreemanUnited States
We had used Francesc 2 times already and by now we felt like old friends. He did not disappoint us and since we only had one day to fit in all the "important" sites in Barcelona, he chose wisely and we were able to enjoy many of the sights, especially the Sagrada Cathedral. He has so much knowledge about Park Guell and the Cathedral and it was wonderful to be able to have someone who could answer our questions; instead of just taking the audio tour. We highly recommend him for any tour requirements.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks AnnaMarie, it was great to see you again after your two-week trip for the Mediterranean. As you have said: As Old Friend. I hope our paths will cross again! Francesc
Daniel JacksonDallas, TX, United States
WOW - wonderful insights to Gaudi and his history - learned so much - I was fascinated by his understanding of Gaudi and his attention to detail in Gaudi's work.
Deborah WelshPortage, MICHIGAN, United States
Barcelona has been a dream of mine since I was 16 years old and 50 years later,and with the help of our fabulous guide, Francesc, my dream came true!!! Francesc is a very knowledgeable and passionate man about his city, which made this tour so incredible. Our tour of Gaudi's Park Guell and Sagrada Familia were sights I will never forget, even through my tears!!! If you like unusual architecture, then this is tour for you and Francesc is the guide. Even his recommendations for dinner was fabulous.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Deborah! It has been an honor to be the guide who has made real this dream of your life. Francesc
Rosalie SmithUnited States
Francesc is a delight! Very knowledgeable and pleasant to be with. Learned a lot and had an enjoyable day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Rosalie!!! I have had a wonderful day too. Tomorrow we will visit the Sagrada Familia; the Park Guell and the Montjuic Hill. Good evening. Francesc
Debbie TurUnited States
Fantastic tour. Franseca is very knowledgeable. We would recommend this tour.
Terri ChalmersUnited States
Francesc was fantastic. He was very interesting, knowledgeable, his English was terrific. He also made the best of a difficult situation. We toured with Francesc for two days. The second day Barcelona was on strike and all the places we were supposed to visit were closed. Francesc managed to give us a walking tour and described the places we couldn't get into see from the outside. He still made it interesting and informative. He has a nice sense of humor and we just had a great time with him.
Peter DrakeUnited States
We had an amazing tour with Francesc! He was so helpful, informed, timely, easy to get along with, and willing to cater to our every interest. Huge recommendation!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Peter. Fortunately Sunday has been a sunny day as well. Francesc
Thank you Francesc for spending three days with our group in Barcelona. We all finished our stay with a greater understanding of the architecture, art and history of this wonderful city thanks to your engaging tours and excellent restaurant recommendations (including the best helado in Spain). So many highlights and great conversations to remember - we'll definitely be back!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Diane, what a great family that you are! (included you adopted-daughter Claudia ;-) I enjoyed sharing my city with you I hope our paths will cross again Best, Francesc
Rose PettiUnited States
Francesc was a wonderful guide, he was very knowledgeable and informative. He knew exactly what our interest were and helped guide us in our interest. I will refer him to anyone that travels to Barcelona in the future. Sincerely, The Petti Family
Olga SamsonovUnited States
Francesc was very knowledgeable and he gave really great explanations of every site we visited. He kept my 3 teenagers interested and answered every question that they had for him. His English was excellent. He recommended few local places to eat that we wouldn't ever find ourselves. He was a wonderful guide and I highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Olga, thanks so much for your kind review. It has been lovely to know your family and I'm happy that your experience with me was not only my tours but also the places that you visit by your own after the tour. Thanks Francesc
We had a fabulous tour with the very knowledgeable Francesc. A lovely tour guide with heaps to tell us about Gaudi... spending a good amount of time at the Sagrada was a magical experience. Thank you Francesc !!
Julie SkeenUnited States
Francesc was terrific! We would highly recommend him if you are visiting Barcelona!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Julie. It was a pleasure to tour your family through the Gaudi Highlights. We organized the tour to visit the towers of the Sagrada Familia after my tour. I hope you liked them as well. Francesc
Janet McLaughlinUnited States
Francesc provided an excellent Gaudi tour, explaining both details of interest and an overview of the subject. An effective guide is also a good teacher. He is both. We thoroughly enjoyed spending the time with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Janet!!! Tomorrow we will see the Old Town. I hope we enjoy it as well. See you soon! Francesc
Michelle KingGRAPEVINE, TEXAS, United States
We had two half days with Francese. This was day one and was outstanding. His insight of the city and Gaudi are incredible. There is no way we could have navigated the city so quickly or gained as much understanding of the venues without him. He seems to know everyone and was able to get us in sites quickly and show us the important points. Just knowing how to to quickly move around the very busy Barcelona is invaluable. He gave us some lunch options that turned out great after the tour.
Gordon CrespoSan Francisco, CA, United States
Francesc is very knowledgeable about Barcelona, our new favorite European city. We started on day one with Park Buell and Sagrada Familia. (No waiting in line!) and on Day 2 the historic city and Las Ramblas. He also accommodated our desire to visit the Picasso museum and again took us right in past all the lines! Highly recommended as Barcelona is stunning, a real surprise to us. We will definitely return
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Gordon. It's nice to read that you have "fall in love" of my city, besides I have contributed a little bit to it, it's even better. Please if you come back to Barcelona, let me know. Best Francesc
Kyra HoffmannUnited States
Francesc provided us with a wonderful tour of 3 Gaudi sites (Park Guell, Sagrada Familia, and La Pedera). He had a wide breadth of knowledge of the sites and gave us valuable insights on their history and significance. All 4 of us enjoyed the tour and highly recommend Francesc. Thank you very much!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kyra. I had a wonderful afternoon with your party. Francesc
Pamela A.United Kingdom
We were so lucky to have Francesc as our guide! We are a large family with kids of different ages, but he managed to include everyone and to create inspiration for each one of us! Francesc is smart, professional, attentionate and has great expertise when it comes to Barcelona's history and the incredible world of Gaudi! We only had one afternoon with Francesc, but we all wished that we had more time to spend with Francesc on tour. We will have to go back to Barcelona and try to book Francesc again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It will be my pleasure to guide you and your family again. I'm looking forward to seeing you again. Francesc
Kurt BagwellUnited States
Francesc was great. Very knowledgeable, very thorough, very well educated, and very interested in what he is talking about. Also very easy to hang out with for the day. Great job !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kurt!!! And it didn't rain!!! It was a great day ;-)
Diane SchleicherUnited States
5/5 rating! He was a great communicator and he was very knowledgable. We thoroughly enjoyed the 5 hours spent with Fransesc. Diane Schleicher
Shirley S.United Kingdom
I would recommend Francesc as your guide without hesitation. He made Gaudi come alive and the history was clear and fascinating. The Sagrada Familia was stunning and Francesc was able to show us details big tours would miss.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Shirley for such 2 half days that we have shared. I have enjoyed learning from you about the different traditions that they had in other cities in Europe in medieval time. Thanks Francesc
What an excellent tour. Francesc explained so much in a very interesting way, it was the best 4 hours we spent in Barcelona! Thank you Francesc.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Anne. I hope you and Roger have had a good trip to Australia.
Paul St AmantUnited States
This is a great overall tour to see the sites in and around Barcelona. Francesc is very knowledgable and gave us a lot of information about the city he loves. I highly recommend the walking tour with Francesc in addition to this driving tour. You get to see a great mix of tourist sites and local sites.
Gerald HeldUnited States
My wife and I had visited the Sagrada Familia 15 or 20 years ago when there was little progress in construction. Through Francesc's remarkablely cogent presentation we could appreciate the history and glory of this Gaudi masterpiece. No guidebook could convey the same insights that our guide shared with us. We were also blown away by his detailed exposition of Gaudi's magical park.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Gerald!!! Now you have to come back when the Sagrada Familia will be finished and you will see if it reaches your expectations. I wait for you :-)
Marjorie StanfordUnited States
The focus of our tour was Gaudi, and Francesc shared wonderful stories that made Gaudi's buildings come to life. He pointed out design details that we missed on our visit to Barcelona 10 years ago, and it was a much more enriching experience. He definitely made us want to return to Barcelona in 2026 to see the completed Sagrada Familia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hahaha... it will be a pleasure to meet you in 2026 to see the Church completed. Thank you Marjorie Francesc
We highly recommend taking a private tour of Sagrada Famillia and Park Guell. We had guide Francesc and he was very knowledgeable about Gaudi and the buildings we viewed. Visiting Sagrada Famillia was the highlight of our visit to Barcelona.
Robin Robie LuceroUnited States
Fantastic tour!! Francesc knew exactly where to go & guided us around the huge crowds so we were able to see as much of Gaudi's work as possible in 5 hrs.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are right Robin, there is a lot to see. I'm glad that we could get the most out of our time. Thanks for choosing me Francesc
Francesc was a delightful guide who's knowledge of Gaudi made our tour an enlightening and enjoyable experience. The more questions we asked the more he delved into the skills of this remarkable man. His explanations on Gaudi's innovative engineering techniques left us in no doubt of the genious of this remarkable architect. A well worthwhile tour. Greg W.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Greg, You were really interested to understand the reason of the things. It makes the tour very interesting to me. Thanks. I learn every day from travelers Francesc
Thomas MehlerUnited States
Great knowledge of Gaudi, great with kids. Also recommended a great tapas restaurant for dinner.
Leslie EdelmanUnited States
Excellent!! Francesc is an amazing guide.. He is knowledgable and interesting . He listens to the clients wants and desires and delivers the tour just that way...
Sarah ClevelandSeminole, FL, United States
Francesc is a fantastic guide and he will make you feel like family! We booked Francesc for 4 days and it was an amazing time. This particular tour was incredible because Francesc ensured he had purchased tickets in advance in order to enjoy Park Guell when it was not crowded and that we were able to see the inside of Sagrada Familia when the lighting (all natural light) was the best to appreciate all the stained glass. Timing is something only a local guide can know.
Bruce HerrmannUnited States
Great guide. We are big fans of Gaudi's architecture and specifically looked for a guide that was an expert in the field. Frances fit the bill. He not only understood Gaudi, but the culture of the time and how it effected his development and style. Highly recommend his services, and not just for Gaudi. He gave us suggestions on other things to see, great restaurants, even a small local arts and crafts market and a public showing of human towers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bruce. Your tour was very special "Gaudi 6 hours". Last year you couldn't come to Barcelona but this year it was possible. I'm glad that you enjoyed your holidays. Francesc
Charles ElliottUnited States
Francesc was outstanding. Knowledgeable, intelligent, and caring. He went out of his way to insure our enjoyment. Highly recommended!
Scott WileyUnited States
Francesc does a fantastic job!
Tina ReedyUnited States
We had an amazing tour. Frances was so knowledgeable about the history and architecture of both buildings. We would have missed so much if we didn't tour with France's. I would recommend this to any including our clients.
Ernesto RoccoUnited States
Excellent guide, arrived on time, very knowledgeable and organized. Arranged the tour to our interests. Highly recommend. .
Maria GuintaUnited States
Francesc Garcia was outstanding, courteous and very helpful throughout our 2 days in Barcelona. Charles and I fell in love with a Barcelona viewed through Francesc's eyes. Reading and looking at photographs of the main attractions in Barcelona are nothing compared to being there in person; from looking at the city from the Olympic stadium to the Gaudi' house to the Sagrada Familia to the old city. I'll be forever grateful to Francesc who presented his city with pride and love. Sincerely Maria Guinta
We did a tour with Francesc on July 2nd - Gaudi and Modernisme. Francesc is very knowledgeable about Barcelona, Gaudi and architecture. His explanations were most interesting and detailed and we had a very enjoyable afternoon with him. We would highly recommend Francesc, and the Gaudi tour.
William GoodellUnited States
Francesc was excellent...highest rating. We Had eight hours with him over two days, half with car and driver. Sights and history came alive. He set the right pace, as requested, for senior citizens. Also gave us good restaurant recommendations. Thank you, Francesc, for a great time in Barcelona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure. Thank you for choosing me!
Francesc was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. My family, 2 adults & 2 teenagers thoroughly enjoyed his tour and he provided us with excellent dining recommendations too. We would not hesitate in recommending him as a guide.
Michael RandlesUnited States
Francesc is a Fantastic guide. He is outstanding in his knowlege and communication of the sites, facts, and stories of this great city. We had booked the Gaudi Tour, but at the last minute asked about Picasso, so he on the moment arragned to take us there for a quick highlights, and then onto the Gaudi. Because of this our time was short and he adjusted the Gaudi tour to meet our desire! I highly reccomend him, In fact will use him again tomorrow for another tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michael. Really these have been two great days.
Excellent guide, guia excelente. Very well educated, answered all the questions we had, did everything on our pace, showed us a lot of history within Gaudi's works of art. Arrived on time, bought/reserved some tickets in advance so we didn't miss any time. Could not ask for more.
Lori AlleeUnited States
Francesc could not have been a better tour guide! He was so knowledgable. He kept our three children engaged as well! I would highly recommend hiring Francesc to tour Barcelona. We were able to get so much of the city visited in a short period of time, really making the most of our visit.
Lucille McKeyUnited States
Francesc enabled us to understand and appreciate what we were experiencing. He is knowledgeable with good command of English. An excellent guide.
Barry MetcalfUnited States
Francesc provides an exceptional tour of Barcelona and is very knowledgable about the architecture and history of the buildings. Francesc was also very accommodating in providing dining recommendations, all of which have been fantastic. We would definitely hire Francesc for another tour.
Linda LarsonUnited States
Francesc ties history and architectural features together in a lively and understandable manner. There were many, many details at each Modernist site that we would have missed without his commentary. What we learned on our tour with Francesc enabled us to notice and appreciate the other sites we visited on our own in a much deeper way.
Clare S.United States
This was the 2nd day of a 2 day, 4 hour tour with Francesc. We thoroughly enjoyed the 2nd day as we did the 1st day. Francesc had scheduled an appointment at the Sagrada Familia. Having him as a guide, we were able to side-step the long lines and enter right away. The same was true at Park Guell. Francesc had a wealth of knowledge of both sites and made our visits to them fascinating and exciting. We were delighted with his choice of places to visit, his knowledge and highly recommend him and the tour
Kara CroninUnited States
Take 2 or even 3 tours with him, because one simply is not enough. Hungry along the way? Fransesc will know the perfect spot to hop into for quick tapas, a local sweet, or a longer leisurely lunch if you have the time. He is in full command, so just put your faith in him. He can adapt a tour on a moments notice, like when he stopped into the oldest temple in Barcelona after hearing that we had an interest. Book early as he is very popular and spaces fill up fast!
Patrick WheelerUnited States
I highly recommend Francesc and this Modernist tour. He is extremely knowledgeable and adds tremendous color to every site you visit. It would have taken me hours to uncover the details he provide on just the Sagada Familia. We took our two small children (6&9) and he does a wonderful job of incorporating them into the tour. Francesc is a joy to be around, highly knowledgeable and most importantly enhances your visit to this wonderful city by providing you with wonderful lasting memories. Patrick - US
