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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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!

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.

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

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!

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!

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.

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!
