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.

“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.

“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!
Francesc’s Response: I’m very happy that you had a great experience with Mariona. Thanks! Francesc
Here her answer:Thank you for your words. The biggest pleasure is to see that you have enjoyed… and that you will certainly will come back in 2026 when the Sagrada Familia is finished). Mariona

We had the best time on our 8 hour, 2-day tour with Mariana. She was knowledgeable, funny, flexible under our changing circumstances (independence vote). We learned so much. She was the highlight of Barcelona.
Francesc’s Response: It’s great that you had a great time with Mariona. I was sure you would like her. Please see below her answer.

“Gaudi Tour: Sagrada Familia and more” – TBL
Francesc was fantastic. He was very interesting, knowledgeable, his English was terrific. He also made the best of a difficult situation. We toured with Francesc for two days. The second day Barcelona was on strike and all the places we were supposed to visit were closed. Francesc managed to give us a walking tour and described the places we couldn’t get into see from the outside. He still made it interesting and informative. He has a nice sense of humor and we just had a great time with him.
