Barcelona is an amazing city, rich in beauty, history and things to do. We are a family of four, including 2 boys aged 10 and 6. We discussed to Jordan (Hi This is Barcelona) the best way to see the city according to our wishes, which included calm and pleasant walks, taking the best of what we were able to see, instead of an usual hurried and superficial sightseeing.
I think this is the main difference of Hi This is Barcelona: you do exactly what you want to do, in your rithyn and you feel like you have the company of a friend who lives and loves Barcelona, not a tour guide simply doing his job.
That's how we felt about Jordan. We did 2 half day tours (Gothic Quarter and Modernism). At the end, Jordan took us to have a lunch in good restaurants and indicated and reserved others to dinner and made us very confortable to call him to get others tips.
And we had another good surprise: besides English and Spanish, he could speak basic Portuguese, what helped us a lot with the kids.

I'm usually not into walking tours but really wanted to see the Gothic part of the old city. Jordan is a walking talking encyclopedia of Barca and its history and has knowledge of the every lane and cobbled street. It was a terrific experience and along with his tapas bar recommendation at the end of the walk, the perfect evening in the city.

We have traveled throughout Euope and whenever we do, we always take private tours. Up until now ,we have found the entire gamut of guides, from poor, so so, good and one great one. The tour that we took with Jordan and Hi This is Barcelona was the best tour we have had! Jordan was exceptional.. He is a very knowledgable, personable and charming former Southern Californian who is passionate about the city of Barcelona, its people, languages, culture and cuisine! His tours are interesting and fun! He showed us the undiscovered parts of the Bario Goitica, old city, which included some really interesting surprises.At the end of the tour, Jordan joined us for a fabulous tapas lunch in Barceloneta! In addition to being a tour guide, Jordan really acts as a host in the city, eager to make restaurant reservations and assist in any way that he can. He truly is a wonderful guide and we look forward to returning to Barcelona and having Jordan as our guide!

If you've never been to Barcelona before, the best way to see it is not from inside a fast moving car or bus, but on foot. I took a half-day walking tour of the Barri Gotic with Jordan Susselman and it was one of the highlights of my entire trip to Spain. Jordan was fun and easy going, showed me the main sites but also things off the beaten path that sadly many might skip or never know about. He loves the city and it shows. Jordan is an American who's lived in Barcelona for years so there's no language barrier in English or Spanish, which was a relief to me because my Spanish is horrible. I'm a big foodie, so he took me for a chocolate and churros break at a locals haunt, to lunch at a great tapas place by the water, and recommended a great restaurant, Monteil, that I ate at that evening, too. Yay!

then you must use Jordan Susselman´s tour company. We were referred by friends of ours who used him last year and he was every bit as good as promised. We are thinking of relocating here, so we needed more than just a normal tour and he came through. With him showing us his favorite pastry shops, restaurants and jewelry stores, we felt like we were on a neighborhood outing with a friend. A friend that knows more about BCN than most. He took us to some very cool hidden sites and and great stories were told about them. We stopped for lunch and then walked through different neighborhoods where we might want to live, He was able to give us history and insight into modern and ancient culture. It was a fascinating day! Thanks Jordan!
