Francisco is a wonderful guide who led us through some of Gaudi's Most impressive works and described them and all the colorful history and impact of his work .To add to this he is a very delightful guy to spend more than four hours with. He added personal touches including photos of us that arrived in our e-mail shortly after the tour.

Tour: #44498, 4 H City Tour. Gaudi's Sights., Barcelona, Cataluña, Spain    
Date: Sep 9/17

A four hour tour that lasted almost five hours. The day was spoilt by being a very wet afternoon that almost derailed the tour but Francisco took it all in his stride and showed us what he could whilst it was raining but always hoped that the weather would fine up which it eventually did. We were able to spend some good dry time at both Park Guell and Sagrada Familia. Francisco's deep knowledge and love of his home town is second to none. A great start to our four day stay in Barcelona.

Excellent service! Francisco is not only extremely knowledgeable and friendly but accommodating and easy going. I was so happy to have had him while visiting Sagrada; the details provided by him made our experience there whole. And his actually spending his childhood in Guell Park gave us insights we would not have been able to get anywhere else. Thank you very much, Francisco!

Francisco was knowledgeable and friendly. It must be difficult to conduct similar tours regularly and still remain enthusiastic. Francisco did just that. Thank you for an informative and "easy" tour experience. We never would have found the same locations on our own, particularly the Gaudi Park

Francisco should have informed us in advance that we needed tickets so we could arrange to buy them to see Gaudi park which was on our route. We feel it should be part of his job knowing this was part of our tour and that we would not be cognizant of this detail.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joe, my apologies if the tour description and my profile did not make clear to you that if you wished to go inside the Monumental part of Park Güell or any museum, we need tickets in advance, nowadays the norm. Nevertheless to avoid further misunderstandings this tour now includes tickets to Sagrada Familia and Park Güell.

We only had 2 days in Barcelona, so instead of the classic Gaudi buildings (which we did on our own), we asked Francisco to customize a modern architectural tour for us (my husband is an architect). Sites we visited included: Torre Agbar, Barcelona Centre of Design, Mercat dels Encants, Media TIC, Barcelona Forum, Telefonica Bldg., Museu Blau, Torre Fira, etc. We covered a lot of grounds in a relatively short amount of time. Husband was happy as a kid in the candy store. Francisco rocks!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lisa and Jim. Yes, that is the beauty of a private tour (only you) that the tour itinerary can be modify on the spot and adapt to your needs. Thank you for your outstanding tip. All the Best. Francisco M.

Francisco took us to all of the sites we really wanted to see in our short time in Barcelona. An excellent driver, he knew how to get from A to B without fuss. As a guide, he knew everything about the places we stopped and I don't think we had a question that stumped him. A great and friendly person, he even took many professional photos of me and my wife and e-mailed them that night as a souvenir of the tour. I cannot thank him enough and recommend him highly.

The second day Francisco picked my clients up for a full day tour going to Montserrat and other sights along the way. He made the journey pleasant enough that they took advantage of the entire day and loved every minute of the trip. Not only was their trip perfect but when they arrived home , Francisco had sent them pictures he had made of their trip along the way. Very nice ending with memories of the stay in Barcelona.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We had a great day visiting the Penedes region, tasting and seeing how is made our traditional Cava, the sea side front and the Mountain of Montserrat. And for lunch a taste Fideua. Give my Hello and thanks for their extraordinary tip.

Francisco was a great guide and we enjoyed seeing Barcelona in spite of the hot day. He tailored the tour to accommodate an elderly tired person who was limited on physical action but still two teens got a lot out of the morning visit. Great way to do personal sightseeing. Thanks for the service. J. Peters

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jacquelin, daughter and grandsons, the pleasure was mine. The idea is to keep every body happy and ajust the tour with each person necesities. Best to you all.

Great tour!!! Francisco was really good in explaining cultural and historical Barcelona. His tour was unique because he photographed our experience. Highly recommend. P.S. Having done a few tours-by-locals in Spain I have to mention that his English was excellent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Steve and Patricia. Enjoyed very much to show some of the sights we could see in four hours tour. See you next time. Best to you two.

Francisco was PHENOMENAL! He designed our tour so we saw exactly what we wanted. The weather there was NOT nice-rainy & cold-but he made the day GREAT. He found parking spots AT the places we wanted to see-just amazing. His knowledge and comments were very informative- his English was perfect. He even brought us to a hotel so my friend (a travel agent) could meet her contact there and made sure we were okay when he left. He also told us great info re:taxis (& rates) and took great pics of us. He is A++

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Margaret. Thank you for your kind words. It was a shame the weather but is all about attitude to take the best out of the day and you help for that to happen. I always keep a spare umbrella in the car, even if just need it once a year. Thanks again for your generous tip.

Francisco shared his knowledge and an obvious love for Catalonian culture, history and photo opportunities.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Steven, it´s a pity that we only had four hours tour. Hoping to see you soon again with you family on vacation in Barcelona with plenty of time to see the rest. Good luck for your business in Spain and Europe.

Francisco showed us 'his' city as only a local could do. We found him to be very accomodating with what we wanted to see and do. Being picked up at our hotel was a bonus and saved a lot of hassle with trying to find an office or meeting place. Thanks Francisco for a great tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Don and Brenda, we had a nice morning visiting Sagrada Familia and Park Guell. It was a shame that we didn´t have a full day to see the rest of Barcelona. See you soon.

Francisco was excellent as our tour guide in showing us the highlights of Barcelona. He knows the city thoroughly and was polite as well as professional in his demeanor. His command of English was good. He was always on time. The added feature of his being a professional photographer as well as tour guide was added value for us. He emailed us electronic files of the photos he took of us as we toured the city and they were beautiful work! I would recommend Francisco without reservation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Art, it was my pleasure to show Barcelona to you, wife and friends. It always helps to see Barcelona by car to get what the city has to offer. Enjoy the Cruise in the Mediterranean sea !!!.
