Josep is an AMAZING tour guide. Even though the weather was a bit wet he made the absolute best of it for us. We saw everything that we could want to in order to truly get a feel for Barcelona. You can tell he LOVES his city and is knowledgeable about anything. This was a recommendation from friends and we are so grateful they told us about ToursByLocals AND Josep in Barcelona!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I have decided to give also a 5 stars as Travelers!!! I have enjoyed having you all. Yes I love my city and love to show it! Thanks for the great review and come back some other time. All the best Josep

Josep was terrific! Given his depth of knowledge, he was able to eloquently educate us on Barcelona, and it's importance to Spain over time. As we experienced the "highlights of Barcelona tour", he brought the city alive with his historical and personal perspective. As a result we gained a deep appreciation for the beauty and significance of Barcelona. It's important to note that technology played a role in our enjoyment...we each had ear buds that allowed us to hear every word Josep has to say!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sherryl! I could not be more than very grateful for your excellent review and encouraging personal comment. It has been a great pleasure having hosted the 6 of you in Barcelona. Best regards and until the next time you visit! Josep
A great tour with a great guide. You cannot pack more into 6 hours in Barcelona - and still we never had the feeling to be in a hurry. Josep also managed it very successfully, to integrate our kids (8&6yo) into the tour and even fascinating them for Sagrada Familia (which was not an easy task). Very tasty lunch at noon in a nice tapas bar. This guide is highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Flo for your excellent review and I am very happy to hear that the kids enjoyed it as well. Be back soon! All the best for your kids, your wife and yourself! Josep P

Josep was prompt, professional and very knowledgeable. He brought portable ear buds, which allowed every person to hear him clearly so we all enjoyed his tour. He obtained fast track tickets for the Sagrada familia at very short notice. Every stop was well planned out he offered great knowledge and history as well as interesting antidotes. The driver was very accommodating and the van was quite comfortable. We are very glad we had Josep as our guide in Barcelona and would highly recommend him to others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Debirah for your your great review! I really enjoyed hosting the 4 of you in Barcelona. All the bests Josep

Josep took into consideration my injured knee, booked a private car for us, and did a wonderful job introducing us to this beautiful and culturally rich city. He was born in Barcelona so he could provide breath and depth to the information he gave us. Great tour. Did not want it to end.
William HallUnited States
Our tour by Josep was outstanding. Much more than a 5 star rating. Knowable and through. Visited the best places in Barcelona. The use of ear buds was great and greatly enhanced the experience. I would hope all guides would take advantage of this technology. Thanks from all six of us for an outstanding day. All the best...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very grateful to you for the outstanding review. I certainly enjoyed having hosted you in Barcelona. All the very best Josep

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr Martin for the great review! Hope to see you again Barcelona. Best regards Josep
Booked a tour with, Tours By Locals in Barcelona for our group of 10. Josep P. was our guide and we could not have been more pleased. In spite of having our tour on the day of the Referendum he and the driver were amazing. Josep is extremely knowledgable and passionate about Barcelona and proved that by giving us the best of his abilities as a tour guide. Definitely a 5 STAR rating from 10 folks out of Canada. Well done Tours By Locals. jack Toornstra

Paul BedfordUnited States
Thank you Joseph for your expertise on the city of Barclona. You were able to customize a tour that was a great fit for our family. Our family has a senior with mobility challenges and Josep made sure she was not excluded from experiencing anything from the rest of the family. We also have daughters age 11 and 14 who Josep won over. Your knowledge of the city and expecially Sagradia Familia is astounding. Thank you also to Daniel, our driver who was always where we needed him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Paul for the excellent review. Nonetheless the best reward is your comment about how your 11 year old Katherine has finally reacted so positively to the Tour. It has ben a pleasure hosting your family in Barcelona. Best regards to you all, and a very especial recognition to Katherine. She is a lovely girl! Josep

Josep is a totally professional guide. We had a good overview of Barcelona in a few hours. The driver and the car were good. The explanations of the Sagrada Familia church were outstanding.

I have looked at your blog with your great pictures and I can wait to see your trip to Barcelona in it. I am happy to know you enjoyed also lunch at the place I recommended. Best regards Josep

Linda OfferdahlUnited States
Joseph was an EXCELLENT guide. Not only was he an expert in the sites we saw, but he entire day was orchestrated to maximize the best time to see things in terms of the crowds and also to maximize sightseeing time. I highly recommend hiring the driver along with Joseph. We saw so much more because we didn't wate time parking and walking to places.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Linda, It was great to have hosted you both in Barcelona. Thank you for the very good review. Enjoy your cruise and have a lovely summer. Josep

The whole booking experience was very user friendly and easy to manage. It could not have gone smoother. I would like to give my thanks to Josep. A superb guide with over 20 years experience and with a deep knowledge on Barcelona. He led our family tour of 9 people and did it flawlessly. We all enjoyed tremendously his passion and knowledge of Barcelona and would do another tour with him anytime as he is superb! I highly recommend Josep to give you an amazing tour of Barcelona.
