I also had read Dan’s glowing reviews and can honestly write that our all day walking tour met all our expectations. Dan met us at our hotel exactly on time. The provided headsets were top notch allowing us to walk and listen without any difficulty. As native English speakers, it was very easy to understand Dan. He has a wealth of information about all the sites and neighborhoods of interest. I highly recommend touring Barcelona with him.

This tour is not to be missed. Dan is incredibly knowledgeable and jam packed each tour with all of the highlights you need to see. He makes it moving and fun. He is incredibly flexible find each itinerary for his guests. If you are coming to Barcelona you must take a tour (or two) with him.

We are very big on having experienced, licensed private guides wherever we travel, since we know, based on experiences we have had all over the world, (Sicily?Crete?Myanmar? South Africa?) that a good guide can make all the difference between a terrific experience and one that is just so so. Dan Wilde ("Our Man in Barcelona,")was, quite simply, one of the best and most knowledgeable we have ever had. We did a half day (mostly) walking tour with him that took us from the Gothic Quarter through many things Gaudi. His wound us around the winding streets of the old city, pointing out fascinating bits and pieces on every street. Gargoyles anyone? The Gate of Angels? Since we were interested in architecture, he took us to churches, houses, markets. We wanted to see something if medieval and Roman Barci, even though the history museum was closed on Monday. No problem for Dan as he whisked us through medieval courtyards and showed us roman remains hidden within a house, protected from the elements for 1000 years. Moreover, he did it with such humor and good spirit, thoroughly understanding that our preteen and teen granddaughters might need a little pick me up after several hours of touring. Best ice cream in Barcelona anyone? Yum! We chose to do some of the standard sites (Sagrada Fmilia, La Pedrera) on our own the next day. (Dan had taken us through the Eixemple quarter and given us an amazing tour of the Passeig de Gracia modernest houses ending with the Casa Batllo ) Armed with the background Dan had given us, those sites were so much more interesting and impressive. If you can swing it, I cannot imagine a better introduction to this most fascinating city than a tour with "Our Man in Barcelona." If we hadn't been with our granddaughters, we would definitely have booked a full day tour).Thanks for everything, Dan!! (ps. although he has lived in Barcelona forever, he is a native Brit, so no language issues.)

Our visit to Barcelona would have been lacking without Dan. He opened our eyes to the spectacular beauty, history and hidden treasures of the city . His knowledge and love of Barcelona is evident, and more importantly he helped us love the city as well. If you do anything in Barcelona, hire Dan to help you fall in love with the city. Be sure to get recommendations from him for the best Tapas. Ken

We spent a wonderful afternoon with Dan visiting the Sagrada Familia and the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, and we're so thrilled that we did! Dan is a brilliant guide...knowledgeable, funny, insightful, and flexible. Visiting these places with Dan made the experience so rich and enjoyable, and gave us insights we would never have had otherwise. Treat yourself and spend your time in Barcelona with Dan. Our afternoon of touring with him was the true highlight of our stay! Thanks, Dan!
