Wonderful day with Gaston! We were lucky enough to find Gaston through a recommendation. He planned a great day for us which began at a winery. We then had a delicious lunch at a local restaurant on our way to Montserrat! We were in Barcelona to visit our son who is studying there for a semester. Gaston arranged a full day for 8 of us, he is so knowledgeable and friendly, we felt like we have known him for a long time. I highly recommend Gaston to plan your activities while you are in the Barcelona area. Can't wait to visit again and see our new friend Gaston!

I hired Gaston for 2 tours in Barcelona. The first tour was on my day of arrival to La Sagrada Famillia & Parc Quell. It was a 4 hour private guided tour. The second tour was a full day tour of Montserrat, a winery, with a lunch in between in a quaint village.
Gaston was an amazing tour guide, Extremely knowledgeable. He picked us up on time at our hotel. We traveled with another family, for a total of 8, 4 of the kids were of college age. We had a fantastic time with him. Would definitely recommend him & would absolutely hire him again!

We had three days of guided tours with Gaston, and they were all different and all terrific. He knows an amazing amount about the city, its history, its attractions, and even its current issues with growth. He has a very right sense We had three days of guided tours with Gaston, and they were all different and all terrific. He knows an amazing amount about the city, it’s history, it’s attractions, and even its current issues with growth. He has a very wry sense of humor which makes the tour go very quickly. He knows the interesting things that help to make sense of the history of Barcelona. In short, he is a charming and informed host for a beautiful and very different kind of city. We would use him again in a heartbeat.

Our trip to Barcelona was exceptional, thanks to Gaston. His knowledge of the history of the city and country, and his attention to the details quickly immersed us in the culture and heightened our experience. Gaston provided great recommendations for restaurants and sites to see when we were touring on our own. The trip to Monserrat was beautiful, and Gaston perfectly timed our tour so that we could see the area, experience the boy’s choir and have a beautiful lunch. It was the most stress free and enjoyable vacation. Thank you, Gaston!

We took 2 tours with Barcelona Experience.
On day 1 we took a car tour of the city with Gaston. Covered a lot of ground, learned a lot about the history of the city, saw most of the sites, had a wonderful and inexpensive lunch, and came away with plenty of good pictures and memories.
On day 2 we took a walking tour of the old city with Viktor. Great architectural insights and explanations of the various neighborhoods.
Highly recommend Barcelona Experience to anyone who wants to truly experience Barcelona.

This was the second time that we toured in Barcelona with Gaston. When we knew that we were returning to the city, Gaston was the first contact that we made. His personality and knowledge of Barcelona makes touring with him an absolute pleasure. Though we are adults, I would not hesitate to recommend him to families as well.

We enjoyed an wonderful leisurely bike tour through Barcelona with Gaston. The sights were amazing, but Gaston's knowledge of the history of the places we visited was outstanding. The lunch we shared put the entire day over the top.

Gaston was amazing. He made our trip so easy with his planning and knowledge of the area. He maximized our time here and we were able to see the best areas of Barcelona without having to try and figure out things on our own. We never had to worry about a thing and Gaston was a pleasure to around Barcelona with. And, he knows some great local restaurants where you can get away from the crowds and get the best food.

If you’re coming to Barcelona, do yourself a favor and let Gaston show you around. Having a private guide is worth every penny.

I was looking for a “real” mountain bike ride in Barcelona and Gaston had the perfect fit. We rode almost 30 miles and climbed 3,000 feet. From the city to the peak at Temple of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Great views of the city and sea. Mostly dirt, gravel and single track trails with a few technical sections. Great workout and unique experience you won’t get with any other bike guide service.

What a wonderful walking tour of this beautiful city! Gaston was so knowledgable and enthusiastic, we really enjoyed ourselves. He took us to both obvious and not so obvious parts the city. He went at our pace and was glad to stop for a gelato when we needed a break. We would highly recommend him.
