Cayetano sets the bar. He truly loves Barcelona and knows everything about, past, present, and future. We had another wonderful day touring the city of Barcelona with Cayetano. Our teenage daughters were engaged and interested in everything her shared. They did not take their phones out once !!! Thank you for a memorable day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Darvish Family, It was nice to spend a second day with you exploring the Gothic Quarter and Santa Caterina Market. Safe travels! Cayetano

Dena KaplanUnited States
Taking a tour with Cayetano is like having your own history professor telling you all the details of what took place throughout history. He is so knowledable and a delight to listen to. I would have loved to have him with us for our entire 3 days in Barcelona. Our 4 hour tour went by so fast. He is wonderful. I highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dena, it was a pleasure to spend the morning with you! Thanks for the review! Cayetano
Hilary MillerUnited States
Cayetano's tour was absolutely wonderful! We enjoyed learning so much and walking around the entire Gothic District, Jewish quarter, and ending with the Segrada Familia! Cayetano is a fantastic tour guide, extremely professional, punctual, informative, and fun! Highly recommend Cayetano as a professional tour guide in the gorgeous city of Barcelona!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Hilary and Jacob, thanks of your your review! I loved touring Barcelona with you! Good luck!!! Cayetano
Stephen W.United States
Cayetano led us on a terrific 4-hour walking tour of Barcelona's Gothic Quarter. From the moment we met him, Cayetano brought to life the rich architectural, social and political history underlying the Gothic Quarter and it's most important sites. He has an art history background and deep experience as a Barcelona guide-specialist. He is very personable and was able to answer all our questions (we peppered him with many). An A++ tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stephen and Don, it was a pleasure to meet you. I enjoyed showing you my beautiful city. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Barcelona. See you, maybe soon, in Palm Springs! Yours Sincerely, Cayetano

Katie HakesUnited States
We really enjoyed the historical perspective while taking in the wonderful sights, sounds and smells. The rain did not deter Cayetano from sharing his knowledge and love for his city. Only wish is a diagram of the route because with all the twist and turns we we thoroughly lost. Thank you for a wonderful tour.

Joanne RichardsonUnited States
The Gothic Quarter was fascinating. I grew up in a gentile in a Jewish community and learned so much more than I knew about Jewish history. It was a great tour. You will learn so much. I recommend it highly!

Joseph DolanUnited States
Cayetano was phenomenal in every respect. He was warm, personable, super- knowledgeable and caring. He was also energetic and had a real flair for bringing history to life. My daughter and I would give him more than 5 stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joseph and Katie, I had so much fun exploring the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona with you. I am happy to read you enjoyed the tour. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Barcelona and your trip to Carcasonne. I hope to meet you again soon in Arizona or New York! Warm regards, Cayetano
Sharon F.United States
10-star rating! Cayetano has both Substance AND Style. SUBSTANCE - He is extremely knowledgable about the history/architecture + more of Barcelona. His command of English is outstanding. STYLE - Some are knowledgeable, but don't communicate info in an interesting way. He is passionate/personable and, even if you aren't interested in the subject, makes the subject come alive. He puts everything in context and 'read' our interests; IQ and EQ. We would highly recommend Cayetano w/o reservations!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sharon and Ivan, Thanks for your review. I am happy you enjoyed the tours. I enjoyed your company and your attention to my explanations. I hope we can meet again in the near future, in Barcelona or in the United States. Warm regards from Barcelona! Cayetano
Andrea P.United States
Very knowledgeable gentleman who is multilingual, and who has obvious love for his country and its culture and history. Very interesting tour of all that I wanted to see on my private tour list, on a beautiful day. I was very comfortable walking at my own pace and having time for questions and photographs during the tour. I really enjoyed the Spanish courtesy and nice manners, too! This was a wonderful way to see a lot of historic Barcelona and learn about its Roman and Medieval history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrea, thanks for the review, it was a pleasure to spend the morning in Barcelona with you. Cayetano
Mark LowenthalUnited States
This tour is excellent! We received a wonderful backstory to accompany the walk through the Roman & Medieval streets of Barcelona. Cayetano, our guide, was very personable and knowledgable. If you book this tour - you will not be disappointed!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mark, Thanks so much for your review. I hope to see you again in Barcelona. Cayetano
Brenda RootUnited States
Cayetano was terrific as a guide to the ancient and medieval city of Barcelona. We would have spent much more time with him-days if his schedule would have allowed. Loved his walking tour. His grasp of Spanish and Catalonia art and history was beyond our expectation. He knew his city so well and after we finished the tour, we felt we had such a better sense of the city and the province. So well done. So happy we had the experience. Thank you, Brenda Root
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Brenda, thanks for the review! Cayetano
Jordana TemplinUnited States
Thank you, Cayetano, for the outstanding tour of the historic heart of Barcelona during our visit. We loved meandering the narrow streets and exploring the antique shops.

Maureen GlassUnited States
We had an excellent tour of the old town and medieval part of Barcelona with Cayteano . He met us at our hotel and took us on a 4 hour walking tour through the twisted narrow streets of the old town. His English is excellent and his knowledge of the history of the area made our visit so much better than if we wandered the area on our own! We are a group of 4 Americans and would not hesitate to recommend Caytenao to anyone. He made our visit to Barcelona so much better!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Maureen, Linsein, Don and Barry thanks for your review! Cayetano
Dev ShahSK9 2LJ, United Kingdom
Cayatona was brilliant and would highly recommend him. He took us to areas which normally as a tourist you may not know of or visit and as it was so hot he made sure we always stopped in shaded areas. Extremely knowledgeable on Catalonian/Spanish history. He made it interesting.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dev!

Allison ObicoUnited States
What can I say except that Cayetano is awesome! Cayetano took us through the narrow winding streets of old Barcelona and gave us great historical information. He is a true history buff and knows his stuff. After going on the tour with Cayetano, I have a better understanding of the layout of the city, why and how things became situated and were laid out in the city of Barcelona. He is knowledgeable, organized, out-going, kind and friendly. Everything you want in a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Allison, I enjoyed showing my city to you Paul and Ella. How was Mont Bar? See you soon again in Barcelona or Pasadena. Yours Sincerely, Cayetano
Gabriela HallNew Zealand
Cayetano is a enthusiastic and fantastic guide who kept us and our teenage daughter engaged and interested the whole 4 hours of our roman and medieval walking tour. He bought the history alive and pointed out details which we would otherwise not notice! His english e perfect. This tour was the first thing we did after arriving in Barcelona and it gave us an amazing introduction not just in the history but also where to eat and where to find cool shops and which museums to go to in our own time. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gabriela, thanks for the review! I hope you enjoyed you holiday in Barcelona. Cayetano
Mary E.United States

Mary HayesUnited States
Cayetno is an excellent guide! We had two wonderful half day tours with him and we were extremely pleased with both tours. His knowledge of all aspects of life in Barcelona is remarkable from ancient times to present. He also, at my request, incorporated " foodie" information into our tour. He gave us great restaurants to try and we had a tour of the market. We highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary, thanks for the review. I am happy to read you had a great time in Barcelona!!

Terry L.Long Beach, CA, United States
We really enjoyed our 4 hour walking tour with Cayetano. He is very knowledgeable about history and how it has affected Barcelona over the years. He was very kind to tourists who asked directions while with us. He answered all our questions and showed us everything on the Itinerary. We even had time for a rest and coffee. We covered a lot of territory on foot and learned a lot about Barcelona. You will not regret this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Terry!!!
Perry GreenUnited States
We booked a 6 hour private tour for 4 people. Firstly I am not the type to provide a public rating, but Cayetano deserved the price we paid and then some. You simply cant ask for anything more from a private tour guide, local knowledge, demeanor, per purchased tickets/ease etc...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Perry, Thanks for the review!! I hope you enjoyed Mugaritz and Akelarre!!!!
Chris AgostinelliUnited States
Cayetano is an outstanding tour guide who is smart, considerate, and very knowledgable. He was willing to customize our tour to our suggestions while maintaining all of the highlights of the described tour. Cayetano is a very kind and personable person who is wonderful to be with on any tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chris, Thanks for the good review!! I am happy to read you enjoyed the tour!! Best Regards from Barcelona, Cayetano
Andrew FeraiosEmeryville, CA, United States
Cayetano gave a great well informed tour of Gaudi Barcelona. His knowledge of the architecture and the folklore surrounding Gaudi was outstanding. I also had him give me a tour of Roman and Medieval Barcelona that was as intriguing. Next time I go to Barcelona, I plan to hire him again. It was a fantastic way to understand the history and culture of Barcelona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrew, thanks for the review!!! See you in Barcelona in 2026!
Richard DrexeliusSedalia, CO, United States
I wish I could give more stars! "Tano" was amazing. Knowledgeable, friendly and conversational. We had already been in the area for 3 days, but the tour made the area so interesting with stories/history/Catalonia identity. Having a tour is WAY better than reading a tourbook. It was a 4 hour tour, but he took a break with us for a drink and a bite to eat- that was probably the best part, since we just chatted about our families, Spanish healthcare, education system, etc. Thank You, Tano!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rick, thanks for the review!! See you soon in Denver or Laguna Beach!! Best Regards from Barcelona.
Gina WilsonUnited States
Cayetano is fabulous! He is smart, witty and quite knowledgeable! If we had time, we could have spent 2 days with him. Such a wonderful and compassionate guide. You can tell how much he knows and loves his city! This is the man to be on tour with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gina, thanks so much for the review!! See you again in 2026 in Barcelona!!

Dianne RosenthalUnited States
Cayetano is a great story-teller, which makes the walking tour of the "old City," all the more interesting. He is very good at explaining its history and archtecture as well as pointing out some hidden treasures. The tour was well organized so by the end, you could manage the old City on your own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dianne!!!
Howard KramerUnited States
Excellent tour of the Barri Gotic of Barcelona. Cayetano speaks perfect English and knows every nook and cranny of the Old Quarter. He is very engaging and provided insights suited to our particular interests. He also provided an enlightening history of Barcelona and Catalonia. He was a great guide and I highly recommend him.
