Mark is a delightful gentleman, repleat with interesting facts and so very proud of his beautiful Barcelona. I asked Mark to take me "off the beaten track," as I have been to Barcelona several times before. He obliged me by touring me through the recently revived El Raval and charming Gracia district, all in the midst of Catalunya's Patriot Day frenzy. I came away with a broader picture of Barcelona's diverse population and its civic pride. Good job Mark!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Theodore, Thank you so much for your great review! Indeed it was a pleasure to show you this other side of Barcelona, "off the beaten track"! All the best, Mark

Our tour was fabulous! Mark was a great guide - he has a wonderful personality and is very knowledgeable and accommodating. In the 4 hours that we had for the tour he went above and beyond to make sure that we got to all of the places we wanted to visit without feeling rushed. Throughout the tour his commentary was insightful, informative and stimulating. We also had a great driver and the air conditioned van was very comfortable for our party of 5 people. I would recommend this tour highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Richard, Thank you so much for your great reviews! It was a pleasure to show Barcelona to you. All the best and regards from Barcelona, Mark

Mark was an outstanding tour guide giving the right amount of information and not giving information overload. In spite of rain he found plenty to show us and keep us dry.
He was prompt, punctual & very knowledgeable about both locations. He was able to tell us all about the history & folk tales about them all the time remaining courteous & attentive to any and all questions that we had. We were there at the time of the vote for secession from Spain and he addressed all the issues involved both historically,impartially and contemporarily . I would recommend him as a tour guide who wishes to get the best of a trip to to Barcelona Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the feedback and nice words, Alex! Best regards, Mark Planellas-Witzsch, Licensed guide.
