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 amazing! He met us at the port on time. Best guide for English visitors to Spain as he is from England. We had a great day touring with Jim. He had great knowledge...we learned so much. Highly recommended!

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.

Jim was an awesome guide and we had a great time. He went above and beyond for us. Highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Ron, glad you enjoyed the day and got home safely.
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

Jim did a good job making our diverse group happy touring Barcelona. We got a good mix of historic and contemporary with excellent commentary along the way.
