Our tour with Josep was amazing! He is a very knowledgeable guide and went into great detail to explain the history of Barcelona and the magnificent architecture that we saw. He even showed us on his iPhone the reflection of the stained glass windows so we could see the amazing colors which the naked eye missed. This tour made our visit to Barcelona something we will always remember! Many thanks to Josep!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Susan and Raymond for such a good and immediate review. I certainly enjoyed hosting you. Hope you keep using TBL All the best Josep

Josep was very knowledgable, he paced the tour well. We particularly enjoyed the blue tooth head sets so that we all could clearly hear Josep's comments. He also offered us helpful information about Barcelona. We highly recommend Josep as a guide.

Josep was a great tour guide! He knew the answers to all of our questions and the history of the city. We had bad weather, but Josep made the most of it, and we still got to see all of the locations. Josep had ear pieces that we could wear, so we could wander around the different places and still hear what he was saying. It really helped as the locations were often loud/crowded. It was helpful for us who are all mid-20s, and definitely would be great for people that are hard of hearing. Highly recommend!

Josep was very informative and well-organized on this tour. I don't hesitate to recommend him to anyone with an interest in Gaudi's works. The only reason I didn't give him another star is his somewhat aloof personality compared to other Tours By Locals guides. However, he certainly answered all our questions and gave us ideas and reason to further explore Gaudi's and other impressionists' works while we were in Barcelona. His admiration and explanations of Gaudi's genius was very evident.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mr Stoeck, Thank you for your rating, I had just lost a good friend in a motorcycle accident that week and even if I tried my best that my state of mind would not interfere with my guiding that day... that would certainly explain your assessment. Believe me that I am just the opposite under normal circumstances. I appreciate also your recognition of my explanations, knowledge and admiration for Gaudí. My best regards

Josep is an excellent guide -- 5 stars. He's thoroughly knowledgeable and very good at providing context for the Gaudi tour right from the beginning. His English is excellent. He was the best guide we had during 17 days in Spain. I highly recommend him.

Fantastic tour. Josep is very informative and a great communicator. Especially helpful was his use of the in-ear, bluetooth hearing device that enabled us to catch all his commentary despite the noisy crowds.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ronald, I appreciate your very kind review! See you soon again in Barcelona Josep
