“Una excelente oportunidad de conocer mejor Barcelona.” – Tripadvisor
Somos dos familias que, en total, sumamos 5 niños, entre 7 y 13 años. Queríamos enseñarles Barcelona de forma amena. Que pudieran tener un buen recuerdo de la ciudad. Como complemento a nuestra visita, contratamos los servicios de Fransesc durante una mañana. Fransesc nos enseñó la historia de la Barcelona Gótica y la Sagrada Familia. Su explicación atractiva y cargada de anécdotas fue un éxito, no sólo para los niños, sino para mayores. La experiencia es altamente recomendable.

Un diez!
“Great Tour” – Tripadvisor
We recently had a four hour tour with Francesc. We covered as much ground as possible and felt thankful for having connected with him as our tour guide. We enjoyed discussions about Catalan history and culture. Our tour of the Cathedral was unforgettable! Truly a highlight of our stay in Barcelona. I have no trouble strongly recommending a tour with Francesc. We appreciated his knowledge and insight. You will definitely be pleased by taking a tour with him.
“Tour was great!! Amazing!!” – Tripadvisor
We did two four hour tours and they were both fantastic. We learned so many interesting facts about Barcelona and saw so many unique things that we never would have seen on a big bus tour. Francesc was very fun to be with. He seems to know everything about Barcelona. In addition to all the exciting things we did on the tour, he pointed out so many great places that we spent the entire next day going back and visiting them. It was fantastic and worth every penny. I highly recommend the tour.
Francesc’s Response: Thanks so much. I’m glad to know that you and your husband also enjoyed the places that I suggested to you. I hope to see you again in Barcelona
“Muy recomendable” – Tripadvisor
A unos amigos se les ocurrió regalarnos una excursión por la ciudad. Eramos un grupo más o menos grande. El paseo con Francesc por la Barcelona Gótica fue muy ameno y agradable. Es muy profesional y recomiendo cualquiera de las rutas y excursiones que organiza.
Respuesta de Francesc: Muchas gracias por tu recomendación. Yo tambien me divertí mucho con vuestro grupo y además trabajando. Un abrazo y hasta pronto
“Walking tour of the Old Town” – TBL
If you are looking for perfection, look no further. You will be met at your hotel by a handsome, classy, very experienced guide who will give you a brief description of your tour and ask for your input. Then it is off to see Barcelona! Fransesc will keep you amazed and mesmerized by the history and sights of this awesome place. You will travel thru centuries of history in 4 hours and end longing for more.
“Walking tour of the Old Town” – TBL
Francesc was very friendly, knowledgeable and very personable. He gave us a wonderful introduction to Barcelona and made the city come alive to us. We walked some and took the subway. This was the first of a two-day, four-hour tour of different parts of the city…..the old and new parts which Francesc suggested. It was a good suggestion as there was so much to absorb. He used his iPad to give us a good picture of where we were and some historical information. We would highly recommend him and this tour
“All Barcelona in 4 hours” – TBL
We spent 4 hours yesterday touring Barcelona. We give him a 5 of 5. He made sense of everything for us! My kids really liked him. He made the architecture of Gaudi come to life! Truly a wonderful guide.
“Visita a la Sagrada Familia muy recomendable” – Tripadvisor
Visita guiada muy completa en la que nos explicaron el proyecto inicial, las obras actuales y la imagen terminada. Una de las mejores obras arquitectónicas de todos los tiempos requiere una visita guiada de este tipo, que aúne la historia contemporánea, situación socio económica de cada etapa, las creencias religiosas, y de manera amena entremezclando los datos con comentarios y anécdotas que enriquecían aun más las explicaciones. Un guía muy organizado y profesional que recomiendo con sumo gusto. Lo pasarán bien y terminarán con la sensación de haber aprovechado realmente la oportunidad. Después podrán profundizar en algún aspecto que le haya interesado, pero una visita de este tipo es imprescindible. Disfrútenlo.
Respuesta de Francesc: Muchas gracias por tu comentario. Como comentas, encuentro necesario conectar aquello que estamos viendo con el momento en que construyó y que lo llevo a ello. Si no fuera así, hacer una visita turística sería ver un listado de sitios como quien ve un álbum de fotos. Muchas gracias y hasta pronto.
“The 4 must-see places in Barcelona” – TBL
Francesc was terrific. He was engaging and knowledgeable -we totally enjoyed our full day tour with him! I would recommend to others. Thanks for a great time!
“Walking tour of the Old Town/Gothic Quarter” – TBL
This was our first time in Barcelona and thought the walking tour would be a good way to get introduced to the city. As it turns out it was a perfect way to see the city and Francesc really makes it come alive. He does a fantastic job detailing everything from how the city has evolved to sharing his favorite ice cream shop. Francesc took time to explain things to our 6 and 9 year old and always tried to incorporate them into the tour. I highly recommend Francesc and this tour!
“The must-see places in Barcelona” -TBL
We really enjoyed our Tour with Francesc. His local knowledge of Barcelona was fantastic. The pace of the tour was good we got to see a lot. He really blended everything together nicely. He helped us understand the Barcelona / Catalonia relationship with Spain. He gave us some recomendations for Dinner Places and we made it to one of them and we are so glad we did it was a fantastic Catalonia Meal. I would highly recommend Francesc to my friends going to Barcelona.
“Tapas & Pinchos in the Old Town with Flamenco” – TBL
We enjoyed our tour with Francesc. We went to 3 different Tapas bars, he was very knowledgable of the area, the food and the drink. We ended with the flamingo dancer as well. Would recommend Francesc for other tours
Francesc’s Response: Thanks Michele! I don’t know if you had the energy to stop to see the Magical Fountain show after the Flamenco (maybe it was too late after a long day). But if you could see it I hope you liked it as well. Sincerely. Francesc
“The must-see places in Barcelona” – TBL
We had a wonderful time on our tour with Francesc. He showed us around the city, all the while giving us valuable information about the history of what we were seeing. He made a special point to make our children feel included. He even brought us a thoughtful gift. I highly recommend this tour.
Francesc’s Response: Your children are lovely it was easy to tour them because they participated answering all my questions. It was a worderful day. Francesc
“The 4 must-see places in Barcelona”- TBL
Francesc was an excellent Barcelona tour guide. He brought a knowledge and passion about Barcelona that my whole family enjoyed immensely. His use of technology (his IPAD),showing (teaching) us the history of an area through pictures of how a site looked originally and how it now looked was wonderful.
“Viaggio di lavoro davvero piacevole!” – Tripadvisor
Mi trovavo a Barcellona per un viaggio di lavoro con clienti e ospiti legati alla mia attività. Ho deciso di organizzare una breve visita guidata per la mattinata (3 ore) e tutti ne sono rimasti entusiasti. Francesc è una guida davvero professionale. Puntuale e preparato, interattivo, ha reso la visita alla Sagrada Familia e una breve passeggiata in centro indimenticabili. Consiglio di passare un’intera giornata con Francesc (o week end ove ci fosse la possibilità). I miei ospiti ne sono rimasti davvero colpiti e il tutto ha reso il viaggio di lavoro speciale! Bravo Francesc!
“Mariona was outstanding” – Tripadvisor
I contacted Barcelona 365 (Francesc) and he referred me to one of his guides, Mariona. She is an art historian so the tour was especially informative. My husband and I did two half day tours and we packed a lot in. If you want to get the most out of a short time, this is the way to do it. Rates are competitive.
Francesc’s Response: Thanks for your review! I’m sure that Mariona will glad reading it and knowing that you enjoyed her job. See you next time.
“Persona piacevolissima e preparata” – Tripadvisor
Guida professionale ma che non ci ha mai annoiati, consiglio di passare almeno una giornata di visite ai monumenti più importanti con lui, vi aiuterà a catturare particolari su molte cose impossibili da percepire da soli….
“Excellent Tour of Barcelona with Francesc” – Tripadvisor
This was my first time utilizing Trip Advisor for a tour guide and my search yielded many choices. I contacted several highly recommended by Trip Advisor but chose Francesc due to the informative, friendly responses he sent to me. We selected Francesc for a 1 1/2 day tour of Barcelona and had a wonderful time with him. He is charming, polite, intelligent and knowledgeable. It was a great experience and I highly recommend him. We were a family of 5 visiting Barcelona and he made the tour fun for all of us — parents and adult children. I know we saw all the important things and then so and know I saw the true Barcelona!
“great and valuable visit” – Tripadvisor
I took some customers in a tour of Barcelona (my hometown). I decided to contract Francesc to make sure we got the most out of it, and it came out just great. He took us to places I did no know of myself!, also the explanations about art, history and legends were very interesting. On the practical side, his organization was excellent, the timings, the routes, the possibility to skip lines at the major attractions (him being an official guide) and his suggestions about were to eat or have a rest, proofed to be the fantastic. My customers were delighted, some of them already planning to come back with their families! My most sincere appretiation to Francesc for going far beyond the line in a work that he masters.
