Let yourself be amazed!!
My name is Francesc Garcia; I am a licensed tour guide in Barcelona and Catalonia and I offer private customized tours for travelers. My tours are in English, Italian, Spanish and Catalan.
Getting to know the city with me allows you to get the most out of your trip, jumping the waiting line and at your own pace.
I was born and raised in Barcelona and I offer a personal experience: a mix of my life as a Barcelonese and my knowledge as a licensed tour guide. I want you to feel as if you were travelling with a friend who knows the history, the enigmas, the small stores and the hidden corners… ultimately, to share my experiences as a local.
You’ll see Barcelona in a different way!
My tours are tailored to your needs. I have got some tours that you can modify to your taste.

“Barcelona in 6 hours” – TBL
Four of us had wonderful day seeing Barcelona with Francesc. He managed to show us most of what we had requested in six short hours. He is very interested in history and loves sharing it. If you want to see more and have him explain a little less, just say so. Great day!
“Walking tour of the Old Town” – TBL
This tour with Francesc is a great way to get a comprehensive exposure to Barcelona. Francesc goes into great detail using maps and images from his iPad to help frame every point on the tour. On this tour, you get to cover a lot of ground and see a lot of important sights from the Gothic quarter. We really appreciated his local knowledge, for example, he pointed out several local stores and eateries that he frequented growing up in Barcelona. He went above and beyond!
“Tapas & Pinchos in the Old Town with Flamenco” – TBL
Fantastic walking tour with intermittent stops at 3 excellent restaurants with recommendations on the best Tapas to try and introduction to Pinchos which were excellent! Francesc was professional and informative about the history of the area. Loved walking the back alleys of the Gothic Quarter with someone who knew his way around!
Francesc’s Response: It was challenging to me to get your interest when it was the end of your tour in Europe but I had a great time with your group. See you soon!
“la mia prima visita a Barcelona” – Tripadvisors
Francesc è stato bravissimo: ha saputo darci una visione d’insieme della città, raccontandoci la storia , la cultura e dandoci molte indicazioni per le visite dei giorni successivi. Inoltre abbiamo visitato la Sagrada Familia e Francesc ci ha dato la chiave di lettura per capire la creatività di Gaudi. Ottimi anche i consigli gastronomici!!!
Francesc’s Response: Thanks so much Michael! The fact that you had chosen a chauffeured vehicle allowed us to see even more than the mentioned places. I hope all of you have had a great cruise trip. Regards
“Un rato divertido conociendo rincones curiosos” – Tripadvisors
Estuvimos encantados con el Tour y encajó perfectamente en las expectativas que teníamos. Mariona, la guía, se adaptó muy bien a lo que buscábamos y supo llevarnos a lugares curiosos que de otra manera no hubiéramos conocido. No solo eso, sino que nos dejó en la puerta del restaurante justo a la hora prevista. 100% Recomendable!

Lo consiglio vivamente!!!!
Risposta da Francesc: Grazie mille!!! È stato il mio piacere farvi conoscere la città.
“Private Tour of Old Town, Gothic Quarter and Jewish Quarter” – Tripadvisors
Francesc was our tour guide for this three hour walking tour. His knowledge of the history, architecture, people and culture was impressive. As a life long resident of Barelona he gave us a perspective that we would not have had doing this tour alone. He was friendly and a pleasure to spend time with. Truly, this was an experience my family will never forget. Well worth the time and money, I highly recommend him!
“Ha sido super interesante y ameno. Repetiré seguro en otra visita” – Tripadvisors
Mi visita ha sido en la Sagrada Familia, ha durado 2 horas, a sido perfecto porque no se ha hecho ni corto ni largo, ha sido el tiempo necesario. El guía nos enseñado fotos del inicio del proyecto hasta ahora y los cambio que han ido surgiendo. Ha sido muy creativo en sus explicaciones. Nos ha gustado mucho, ademas es super atento.
Respuesta de Francesc: Muchas gracias por vuestro comentario. Me alegra mucho que os haya gustado. A menudo hago tours como lo que me habéis pedido: un tour de empresa donde habéis asistido dos personas de vuestra empresa y uno de vuestros clientes. Una visita turística es una buena actividad para amenizar unos días de trabajo juntos.Quizás la próxima nos vemos con la familia. Un abrazo!!!

“Best of Gaudi Private Tour” – TBL
Francesc was an outstanding guide. We are a family of 8 (parents, grandparents, and four teenagers) who booked a 4 hour Gaudi tour with Francesc. He worked with us to personalize the itinerary and professionally handled all details (entrance tickets and transportation to four sites). His excitement and knowledge made it a great morning for all us.
Francesc’s Response: Thank you!!! You were one of my last tours this year and I really enjoyed to share my city with you. Happy New Year!
“4 hour Barcelona Tour” – Tripadvisors
Because of time limitations Francesc accommodated us to start our tour at 8:30am. Mariona was our tour guide and she was absolutely fabulous and has a great personality. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the city, architecture and was very flexible about what we wanted to see. She was on time at the agreed location and we started the tour by visiting the old part of the town followed by a short taxi ride to see Casa Batllo and La Pedrera. The highlight of the tour was visiting Sagrada Familia. Mariona had pre-booked tickets so there was no time lost waiting in queues. Afterwards we had some time left and could enjoy the great views from Montjuïc Hill. We had only 24 hours in Barcelona and with the flexibility of Barcelona365 managed to see many highlights and thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful city.
“Barcelona in 3 hours” – TBL
Francesc was an excellent guide. He responded quickly prior to the tour by email and made all the necessary accommodations. His tour was very interesting, and he made sure to ask whether there was anything I wanted to see. I would really recommend Francesc if you are touring Barcelona!

“Our our Guide Mariona” – Tripadvisors
Marioona was was our private tour guide for my husband and myself for a customized tour created by Francesc and myself after many emails. Mariona was professional, articulate, very knowledgable, accommodating and fun to spend the day with; no request was left unheeded. Consequently, this , our third time to Barcelona, was the best, most interesting and enjoyable as we grew to feel the warm friendship of Mariona’s presence! Thank you Mariona and Francesc!
