“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
“Mariana was excellent!” – Tripadvisors
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.
Thank you. I enjoy so much when you do! You were so eager to listen that it was a pleasure to stroll you around my Barcelona. We had a very nice tour! Mariona

“La bellezza sconfigge il terrore” – Tripadvisors
Non ci eravamo ancora incontrati e già Marina aveva iniziato a prendersi cura di noi. Giovedì 17 agosto, ore 17.10. – Le auto e le moto della Polizia, dei Mosses, i mezzi dei vigili del fuoco, le ambulanze già sfrecciavano all’impazzata sulla Rambla. Alcuni del nostro gruppo (27 persone dai 6 agli 80 anni, a Barcellona per festeggiare i 10 anni di Comunità Pastorale) erano appena usciti da Palau Guell, non riuscendo a realizzare – per fortuna o per un miracolo – cosa era appena accaduto a qualche centinaia di metri più in là. Il resto del gruppo era lontano, in uscita da Parc Guell. Via whats app Marina ci ha seguito e supportato – benché il suo incarico sarebbe iniziato solo la mattina dopo – fino tarda sera, quando siamo rientrati al sicuro in albergo, per la notte. Solo a quel punto, guardando la tv, abbiamo compreso cos’era realmente accaduto. Venerdì 18 agosto, ore 9.00 – Come da programma, Marina si presenta regolarmente in albergo – in Carrer della Escudellers, a due passi dalla Rambla – per accompagnarci nel Barrio Gotico, sulla Ramblas, a Santa Maria del Mar, Santa Maria del Pì, in Cattedrale, al Paseo de Gracia e a Casa Batlò. All’indomani dell’attentato Barcellona è una città ferita ma non vinta. Anche Marina è inevitabilmente così: ferita dal dolore, ma con un’incredibile tenacia e passione per il proprio lavoro ci conduce con piglio deciso a scoprirne la bellezza, senza tralasciare alcun dettaglio. Le sue lacrime agli occhi e il nodo in gola sono anche i nostri. GRANDE, GRANDISSIMA MARINA!!! Grazie per averci accompagnato a scoprire le bellezze di Barcellona in questa giornata sicuramente non facile, quando altre guide turistiche hanno rinunciato a lavorare. Orgogliosi di aver seguito il tuo passo sicuro, a testa alta, camminando per le vie della città, mentre Barcellona ferita ma non vinta rialzava la testa. Ti abbracciamo forte Patrizia
Risposta da Francesc: Grazie mille Patrizie per il tuo ringraziamento all’attenzione di Marina. Lei certamente coccola ai suoi viaggiatori come se fossero i suoi parenti o amici. Marina, mi ha detto di farVi arrivare un grosso abbraccio e di ricordare che “il terrore non vince la voglia di vivere”.
“Three wonderful days in Barcelona with Francesc” – Tripadvisors
Our group of two adults and four teens were shown the best of Barcelona over three days with our friendly guide Francesc. He thoroughly understood how to keep four teenagers engaged and gave us many insights into the history of Barcelona and the beauty of its architecture and culture. We worked together before we arrived to find an itinerary that checked off all of our “must sees” and while we were there he added many other interesting locations along the way to make our visit complete. Thank you for the excellent restaurant suggestions that allowed us to eat Catalan food like the locals, and for taking us to the best helado in Spain. We highly recommend spending your time in Barcelona with Francesc.
Francesc’s Response: Thank you! It’s a pleasure to show the city to travellers so well prepared and organized as you. The teenagers are lovely, they are very intelligent and it was easy to capture their interest in what we saw. Thanks!!!
“Fabulous private tour” – Tripadvisors
Amazing tour with Bettina who certainly knew Barcelona and was a brilliant guide. She understood the specific needs of people using wheelchair and adapted the tour so we all had a great time.
Francesc’s Response: Bettina has a long experience as a guide. She knows how to deal with each situation. I’m sure that she will be very happy to read your review. Thanks for choosing us.
“Complete tour despite the short time available from our side.” – Tripadvisors
It was a business trip with people from different countries of Europe. We were quite tired after the whole day in a meeting. In addition we had short available time. Despite these circumstances she got our attention and every one was happy with the tour. I do recommend it.
“Excellent, flexible option” – Tripadvisors
We had a really incredible time seeing Montserrat through Francesc and Bea. They were attentive and the flexible nature of their tour style allowed us to see everything we wanted to with minimal time standing in lines. Bea was a wonderful guide and we are so glad we chose to go with them!
Francesc’s Response: Thank you for your review. I’m sure that Bea will be happy to read your comments.
“We had two half days with Francesc and they were both outstanding.” – Tripadvisors
We had two half days with Francesc and they were both outstanding. His insight and knowledge gave us a great start to our days in Barcelona. We did a four hour Gaudi tour and 4 hours in the Old Town/Gothic Quarter. Along with the walking tours he gave us confidence to use local taxis and the subway to efficiently get around after the tours were over. Francesc is an outstanding professional. We truly enjoyed our time with him. He navigated us in and out of venues we wouldn’t have found on our own and used our time very efficiently.
“Costa Brava “ – Tripadvisors
Francesc was punctual, friendly, particulary with our young kids, and very knowledgeable of those hidden corners and gems within the Costa Brava region. He was excellent and we will book the Gaudí Barcelona and Girona/Figueres tours with him. You can only appreciate the geography, history and culture with an experienced and well-versed tourist guide like Francesc.
“excellent guide and knowledgeable person” – Tripadvisors
We really enjoyed our day with Francesc. He took us to Sagrada Familia and the other major Gaudi sites in Barcelona. His knowledge and enthusiasm for his work showed, and he is a wealth of knowledge.
Francesc’s Response: Thanks so much. I really love to show the city where I was born. By then it was a very different city, and NOT touristic!!! Can you imagine?

“Exelente” – Tripadvisors
Nuestra experiencia con María Jesús fue excelente. Nos enseñó un montón de rincones de Barcelona que nosotros solos no hubiésemos encontrado. Nos hizo la visita muy amena y entretenida. Estuvimos 5 horas y se nos pasaron volando, aunque los chicos del grupo se nos cansaron un poco.
Respuesta de Francesc: Celebro que a todos gustara, es cierto que ser turista no es fácil y uno acaba cansado 🙂 María Jesús está encantada de leer vuestro comentario. Un abrazo
“Fantática” – Tripadvisors

“Great 2 Days in Barcelona..” – Tripadvisors
Family trip to Barcelona, teenagers included.

Francesc’s Response: Thanks for your comments. It was lovely to spend the day with your family. I’m going to let it know to Maria Jesús, I’m sure she will be very happy to ear from you. Enjoy your trips in family!!!
“stupendo” – Tripadvisors
Francesc Garcia ci ha accompagnato a vedere le principali attrazioni di Barcellona, spiegado in Italiano, in modo chiaro e con simpatia, i segreti e le curiosità. Un grazie particolare per l’attenzione prestata a mio padre con problemi di mobilita. Per pranzo ci ha portato in tipico locale dove servono tapas di tutti i tipi, buonissime e curiose. Complimenti
Risposta da Francesc: Grazie mille, è stato un piacere conoscervi a tutta la famiglia. Ho passato una giornata molto gradevole con voi.
“VISITA MUY RECOMENDABLE” – Tripadvisors
