When you ask your hotel for a recommendation for a guide you cross your fingers. We were lucky enough to enlist the services of Javier. My husband and I were traveling with another couple and had guides in other cities with mixed reviews. Seeing Barcelona through Javier's eyes was a perfect way to end our trip. I wish I could...

My husband and I and another couple visited Barcelona in August 2014 and had the great fortune to experience a private Gaudi tour with Javier. Javier was fantastic! He was so knowledgeable and shared incredibly detailed information about Gaudi and the sites we visited that we never, ever could have experienced on our own or learned from a brochure or... More

In late July, our family of four (including boys, 15 and 12) had a private tour with Javier Sanchez. He was terrific! We had signed up for a City Tour, to see key Gaudi and other important sites in Barcelona, yet Javier came to our hotel and patiently asked questions about the interests each of us had relative to the...

My wife and I were fortunate to get the opportunity to meet and be with Javier in Barcelona. He knows the city intimately and taught us much about things known, but also much about things unknown by the usual guides. His love for the city and his enthusiasm for guiding made our time spent with him special. He was not... More

We recently visited Barcelona on vacation. We had a group of 4 of us, all friends from the US, and when we met with Javier we discussed a particular tour. Due to some complications earlier in the day visiting Sagrada Familia (i.e. we weren't able to), Javier happily helped us revise our tour and plan to where we could get... More
