Four of us did the walking tour of the Gothic and Jewish Quarters with Francisco who was a wonderful guide. He was very informative and gave us a good understanding of the area in a very personal way. He took photos of us during the entire walk and we now have great memories. We are a little older and the weather was terribly hot but Francisco was very considerate by keeping us in the shade and hydrating us at all times. We can highly recommend Francisco to anybody traveling to Barcelona RUTH
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ruth and Friends. Thank you for your rates and comments. All the Best to you. Francisco M.
Frederick DanielsUnited States
Francisco was wonderful! He was knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. He paced the tour based on our abilities (my dad is 87 and walks a bit slower and needed an occasional rest). He took pictures of us throughout the tour, which he sent us. A great bonus! This was a great way to get a brief tour of Barcelona and understand the history, architecture, and beauty of the city. We highly recommend Francisco when you visit Barcelona!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Frederick and Family. The pleasure was mine, hope to see you again in Barcelona. All the Best. Francisco M.

We really enjoyed our walking tour. Francisco pointed so many points during our walking tour, that we had no idea of even though we had walked through those streets a day prior on our own. Another plus is that he is a very good photographer, took pictures of us which were priceless. Thanks you Francisco for making our experience a memorable one.

Francisco was a terrific guide. Very friendly, informative and fun tour for my wife and me.

Francisco took us on a fantastic walking tour of Gaudi sights in Barcelona. His knowledge is impressive and his descriptions and explanations were far more interesting and informative than we ever could have obtained from a guide book. On top of that, he is charming and a pleasure to spend time with.

Our walking tour of Barcelona with Francisco was excellent. The walking pace was just right. We were wrapping up an 18 day cruise from London to Barcelona and this was a perfect tour for our last day. Francisco took photos of us and emailed them to us. They are a great addition to the photos we took along the way. I recommend Francisco for great tours in Barcelona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Roger and wife. I did really enjoy too to spend the morning scrolling down Town with you both. All the Best to you.
Timothy BuckleyUnited States
Our guide Francisco met us at our hotel and we set out on our walking tour of Barcelona. We trekked thru commercial, promenade and side streets all the while absorbing the narration presented by Francisco. It seemed each corner revealed a new discovery. I won't provide spoilers but be assured that Francisco's classic Barcelona walk will surprise, inform and expand your knowledge of a wonderful European city- classic, casual and all brought to life by an excellent guide. Many thanks to our genial host!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Timothy and wife, yes Barcelona shows its history by the architecture preserved. It was my pleasure walk with you two revealing those details. Best to you two. Francisco.
Elizabeth TidwellUnited States
Francisco made our time in Barcelona very special. He was friendly, gracious and knowledgeable. Our walking tour with him included everything we wanted to see and more. It was just an extremely enjoyable experience, including pictures he took along the way and then sent to us. When we mentioned wanting to eat in the port area, he continued walking with us and showed us his favorite restaurant, paving the way to an enjoyable meal and end to the evening. We highly recommend Francisco!
