Katherine FotiUnited States
My group of 6 thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Barcelona with Josep! We would have never been able to see everything that Josep took us to on our own. He was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in an overview of Barcelona. Thanks, Josep!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Katherine for your excellent review. I enjoyed hosting you in Barcelona. Warm regards. Josep P
Scott RodrickUnited States
Josep was an exceptional guide for my family of 5, taking us to many places on a wonderful overview of Barcelona for our first time visit. We were actually amazed at his depth of knowledge, from history to architecture, at every site that we visited. A true travel guide professional that obviously takes great pride in his craft, introducing visitors to the great city of Barcelona. I could not recommend someone to spearhead a private tour of the City any higher.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Than you very much Scott for your great and encouraging review. It was great to be be able to host your family during your Barcelona visit. All the best and have a wonderful summer. Josep P.
It is always a good start when your guide arrives promptly and with a smile. The ice broken, Josep is passionate and spoke of Barcelona with so much pride and knowledge. At every turn Josep had a suggestion for cuisine, culture and activity and this was really appreciated. The trip to Boqueria Market was awesome! The receiver earphone was so efficient, we never lost Josep in the crowd! Finally, the Sagrada tour with Josep was just perfect. Josep gave us our space but was always on hand for questions.
Josep es un guía espectacular. Tomamos un tour privado de Barcelona de 5 horas iniciando 1:30pm. Nos recogió en la terminal del crucero puntualmente con el chofer Alan. Ambos cuidaron hasta el último detalle. Mi esposa e hijos de 20 y 22 años y yo estuvimos más que encantados. Vale la pena la inversión. Barcelona es una ciudad muy rica en historia. Josep es un experto y toma las mejores fotografías. La comodidad de el transporte con chofer hace que la experiencia sea inigualable. Muy agradecidos
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchísimas gracias Antonio y Paola, Sois una familia encantadora y fue un gran placer enseñaros Barcelona a los Carrera. Muchas gracias por el "review" que seguro me mantiene motivado para dar el mejor servicio posible a mis clientes. Que paséis un buen verano Un abrazo Josep
William CroftUnited States
Josep made the tour fun and interesting for both the adults and kids. Keeping the attention of our two middle school age children is no easy task. He used his extensive knowledge to keep it interesting for the adults and his sense of humor made it fun for the kids. We will definitely use him again if we return to Barcelona. Thanks Josep!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear William, Thank you very much for your excellent and encouraging review. It was great being able to show Barcelona to your family and that I was able to engage your kids in it. Hope to see you back some day! Have a great summer. Josep
Salvatore LawrenceUnited States
Josep was punctual and extremely personable and knowledgeable. He was easy to understand and we loved his narration of the various sites. We had a wonderful tapas lunch at a restaurant he suggested and a highlight was our visit to Gaudi's Sagrada Familia cathedral. I would highly recommend him to others and only wish every guide was of his caliber!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mr Lawrence for your very appreciated review. I enjoyed showing Barcelona to your family. Hope to see you some time again soon. Have a great summer Josep P.
Barbara HolmesUnited States
My family and I took the 5 hr All Barcelona Highlight Tour with Josep yesterday and it was the best tour we took on our entire vacation. Loved the blue tooth headphones. the kids (18, 22 and 24) thought they were cool and wore them all day. Josep was entertaining, educational and informative. The pace of the tour was exactly right for our family and we will recommend ToursByLocals to all of our family and friends. I will look for these tours in other cities that we visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Barbara for the excellent review and comments. It was a pleasure hosting your family in Barcelona and the best compliment of them all is that the kids found it also cool and enjoyable. It was very encouraging seeing their interest in the Tour contents. Have a lovely summer. Josep
Robert SlingerlandUnited States
Josep was a fantastic tour guide - highly professional, well informed on all important highlights of the city (especially Gaudi and Sagrada familia) well as warm and friendly. The accompanying car service and head sets were a great asset for seeing the entire city and getting the most out of Tour. We loved it. With two teenagers on the trip we really wanted a guide to help set a foundation for further exploring the city to get the most out of it. Josep delivered!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Robert for the encouraging excellent review! It has been great hosting your family in Barcelona. Hope to see you some time again in the future. My best regards to you all. Josep

Debra DevilleUnited States
Josep is an exceptional guide!!! We have used Tours By Locals for many years, all over the world, and I can honestly say he is the best we have ever had. His knowledge of Barcelona is amazing. His tour was a fabulous overview of the city, with special emphasis on Gaudi and the Sagrada Familia. A very special experience in a "must see" attraction. He uses individual ear pieces with his microphone transmitter which added a wonderful dimension to the tour. Must use Josep in Barcelona!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Debra for your superb comment and review. Nothing can be more motivating than your appreciation when saying: "...I can honestly say he is the best we have ever had" I wish you the very best. Josep
Robin DavisUnited States
YEAH for our guide Josep. Josep was an amazing tour guide for my husband and I. His private tour of this amazing city was so much fun, informative and exciting. I highly recommend Josep. Muchas Gracias mi amigo. Robin & Lyle
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robin and Lyle. I thank you very much for the motivating great review. You were a great couple to be with! You have also a big 5 stars from me as excellent guests! Best regards Josep
Kathleen G.United States
Our Barcelona city tour was the first of 2 tours we had with Josep. We could spend a week seeing all of this wonderful city. But we only had 5 hours. Josep gave us an excellent taste of the city in the short time we had. He is so knowledgeable of the city and especially the Sagrada Familia which we got to skip the line and spend quite some time at. After the morning tour he brought us to a great tapas restaurant where we had lunch before our afternoon Monserrat tour with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kathleen for your excellent review. I certainly enjoyed having you as guests in Barcelona and Montserrat. Best regards Josep
Claudia Russ AndersonUnited States
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
Sheryl MallettUnited States
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
Debirah ShilloUnited States
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
Gwen AlredUnited States
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
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am really grateful for your review of our tour delivered on the past difficult referendum date. I really appreciate it and it will certainly keep me very motivated. Give my best regards to all of you on my behalf All the best and thank you again Josep

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

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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Argueta Family, I´m indeed very passionate about Barcelona and my guiding expertise but reviews like yours keep me highly encouraged and motivated. I certainly enjoyed hosting your family! Especially the so well educated younger members. Thank you again Josep
