The Dali museum is well worth the trek. Francisco was helpful and knowledgeable and was responsive to our needs. I highly recommend him to anyone as a guide and will certainly ask for him again for any future tours in or around Barcelona.He made everything so easy and pleasant for us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Meredith, Daphne and litle Phibi. Yes !!! Dali´s museum is incredable, it is a museum, a circus, a theme park, a science museum about nuclear bombs and atoms, definitely the biggest surrealist work of art. It was my pleasure too to spend those days with you. All the Best !! Francisco M.

The tour in Girona with Francisco was the highlight of our trip! Absolutely would recommend a visit to Salvador Dali's house. It was inspiring on every level. Francisco was charming and so patient with us. He picked us up promptly at 9 am with the plan to return to Barcelona at 6 pm. We were so enchanted with Dali's house that we overstay our time there. But he was very understanding even though we made him late returning. We felt so bad. He also took us to lunch, Theatre Museum and took excellent photos.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Catherine and Daughters. Pleased you apreciated and enjoyed Dali´s work and the inspiring sourindings of Dali´s house museum, so depicted in his paintings. Time is well taken when share with nice people like you, All the best to you all.

Francisco is very personable and speaks perfect English. He is a very cautious driver. We can recommend Francisco for a tour guide while in Barcelona, but we did not like the tour we chose to the Dali museum as it was more driving than touring and took the entire day. We had to rush lunch and then leave before we had entire tour finished so we could arrive back in Barcelona by 1900. Of course this was not his fault.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Richard and wife. Thank you for you kind words. Truely there is quite a bit driving involve in this tour as Dali´s museums are two hours away from Barcelona. Pleased that i was able to take you back in time to Barcelona for you dinner reservation. All the best.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Moul Family. This is my moto to make you feel like you are at Home and feel easy like you do with a friend. Thank you for you invitation to your home. Dali is another jewel in the Catalonian Culture. All the best to you All.

Bland. Be prepared to ask questions because little information is offered voluntarily. A question posed regarding what I considered to be general knowledge on Spanish history required a check on a pamphlet he picked up at a Girona tourist bureau. Since he is not an accredited guide, you'll save money, but.... It would have been far more economical and just as informative to rent a car and drive ourselves around. Be prepared for an ultra slow poor drive to top it off.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I do apologies if you though that i was not so talkative but we were driving through a hail storm and with wins over 90 km/h so my concentration was on driving to take you and return you safe but i did answer all your questions. In Girona always I take a map to explain you where the Romans, Moors, Jews and Christians lived before walking through and to finally give to you as a reminder of the city. Bearing in mind how badly the weather affected to enjoy this tour I will cancel it for winter period.

Francisco is an excellent tour guide and driver. He shared his great knowledge with us regarding all the sites we saw. We walked and drove through narrow streets, stopping along the way to take many photographs. We felt like leading stars in a Hollywood movie. Francisco told us many facts and tales. And then, only a few days after our return to California, I received an email, packed with excellent photographs that Francisco, also a professional photographer, had taken of us on this fine day of exploring.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Karen and Husband. It is also a good conbination to see Dali´s Museum at Figueres and a good scroll through the Medival City of Girona. It was a pleasure to show you around and treated as Hollywood stars ;). All the Best to both of you.

I enjoyed my Dali day tour with Francisco, who provided good company and was able to resolve unexpected problems calmly and effectively. He also took some great photos for me at Cadaques. I strongly recommend taking a private tour to these destinations to make the most efficient use of your time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Luk. It was pleasing to take you to the full Dali trip in Girona. Glad you like it the pictures, enjoy them. All the best to you.

I booked this tour at the last minute after a large tour company cancelled my reservation to tour the Dali Museum in Figueres. Francisco was excellent...Very courteous, friendly and a good driver. He was quite knowledgeable and I was very comfortable the entire day. The cost was expensive as a single, but worth it. I'm looking forward to receiving the photos he took.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kristie, it was a joy to spend the day with you, the area is worth the visit and even more the surrealist museums. Photos are in their way. Best to you.

Francisco's Dali tour is well worth it! He is a good driver, it's an interesting and beautiful trip, and both the Dali house and museum contribute much to one's understanding of this artist. Francisco has considerable knowledge of the artist and the area. It's also great to have him take pictures!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Dagny. I had a great day trip with you. You such a nice person to be with and great conversation. Thanks for you invitation to the Flamenco show at the Palau de la Musica that night. You deserve the best.

francisco was wonderful...especially dealing with 6 old people who didnt know what they were supposed to see !!!! Very intelligent and knowledgeable. Took fabulous pics of us as a gift !!! I would not hesitate to use him again susan gerard

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was great the long trip to Cadaques and Figueras (Girona) to see Dali´s museum and his private house next to the sea in the Costa Brava, great scenery and atmosphere. Don´t say old, it is the spirit that counts and you all are very modern, technical updated and adventurous. It was very nice to share time with you all.
