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.

Francesc was absolutely spectacular! He brought Barcelona to life for the entire family (two teenage daughters). We had fun & we learned so much. His knowledge was limitless. His interest in sharing his passion for the Sagrada Familia, Gaudi buildings and his love of Barcelona in general was most impressive. FABULOUS guide, I would give him 10 stars if I could!!! Thank you Francesc.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Francesc in Barcelona today. He is charming knowledgeable and adapted our tour to our interests. My son, David, will be traveling to Barcelona in May with his family and I will recommend that he contact Francesc. I give him the highest rating in all categories.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Diane. It was a pleasure to spend the morning together Francesc
Francesc provided us with a very enjoyable 4 hour tour of Barcelona - too bad we could not manage a longer tour to see a few more of the sites of Barcelona. Francesc was very knowledgable and was able to provide informative answers to all of our questions. He was a pleasure to be with and it was apparent that he was very proud of his city and enjoyed presenting it to others. On top of all this, Francesc a sore throat but still gave us a great tour of Barcelona.
Francesc was phenomenal. He was detailed in his explanations and went above and beyond when explaining what we were visiting.His 6 hour tour seemed like a 2 hour tour which is testament to the quality of his tour!I recommend Francesc to anyone looking for a personal and private tour of Barcelona!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks John. I enjoyed sharing the day with all of you. Francesc

What a great tour and especially a great tour guide. I learned so much about Barcelona that I would have missed on a larger tour. Spend the money for a car and private tour. It is well worth it! It was an awesome day.

Francesc adapted to what we wanted to do. He was accommodating and very knowledgeable. He made great recommendations at places to eat. He took us to a place to eat indicative of where we were. He was always punctual and easy to communicate with. Would recommend him to all my friends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Pamela, As I told you I'm very proud with your tour. It was different of what I frequently do and I found the way to reach all the places that we have agreed before (even Tibidabo hill). Besides, as you know, Chistmas time is a special moment of the year to know about or "strange" traditions, and we could see them. Thanks for these two days together Francesc

Francesc was charming and knowledgeable. He was punctual and polite and gave us a great initial overview of Barcelona.
Francesc was an excellent guide. He asked my sister and I questions to understand what we wanted to get out of the tour and tailored the experience to meet our expectations. Francesc is very knowledgeable and took very good care of us on the tour. We really saw, learned and enjoyed the experience. Thanks also for the fabulous recommendation for a meal after the tour - it was by far the best we had in Barcelona.

I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of my tour of Barcelona with Francesc. He arrived at my hotel and proceeded to show me the wonderful sights of Barcelona as only a true native could.

Linda S.United States
We much enjoyed our tour of Poblenou & Horta. We learned how the old heart of Barcelona industry is being "renewed" and "restored," in that the buildings are being converted to new uses. We also saw where the locals live and shop, including the local market with its fresh fish, meat, vegetables. We also heard about what it had been like to live in the District under Franco. Francesc provided insight on life in Catalonia in the past and now. He did a marvelous job. We loved the tour and learned much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Linda. Thanks so much. As I told you, your request was challenging to me, because usually tourist ask me the highlights of the city. But you have already seen these and you wanted something off the beaten track. From now on I will offer this tour as a regular one. I enjoyed a lot of your and your husband company and showing you the neighbourhood where I was born. Best Regards, Francesc

Rande S.United States
With enthusiasm, grace, a voice we could really hear, and a detailed "flight plan" for an ambitious tour, Francesc simply made our day. I've never seen a day fly by as this one did - my Mom and I were left wanting more! Francesc is unassuming, yet extremely knowledgeable, approachable, and warm. He brought great life to a Barcelona overview tour, and we could not have been happier.

Francesc led us on a wonderful tour of Barcelona. We wanted to see the most important sights in town and he did not disappoint.

FRANCESC was terrific ... My wife and I added a Couple from Australia from our cruise and the four us felt the tour was one of the best ever ! My wife an I are almost 80 and we saw Barcelona in a day thanks to the arrangements made by FRANCESC ... We learned the history.. the cultures, the politics , the religion, the archeticture and most of all the beauty of Barcelona ! Don't miss using him as your guide if you visit this city.
