“Jose was the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

We just spent a day with Jose and enjoyed every bit of it!

He picked the 6 of us at our hotel and we spent 6 hours touring the highlights of Barcelona. He was so personable and knowledgeable about the city and its history. He was able to answer all of the questions we had. He also tailored the tour to the sites we had requested to see.

We skipped the line at Sagrada Familia and went to Park Guell. His driver dropped us at the top of the park and Jose guided us down with all kinds of info about Gaudi and his designs in the park. (Then the driver met us at the bottom....important if anyone in your party has issues with climbing hills...)

We asked that he take us to a tapas place for lunch and he did. We loved the restaurant where he helped us order items that fit with the likes of the 6 people in our party. A lovely meal!

After lunch we visited the site of the 92 Olympics and the Montjuic park. What fantastic views of the city and port. Then we drove down to the Gothic quarter and walked through some of the oldest parts of the city.

I've taken other private tours in other countries, but this was by far the best!!

I highly recommend it to anyone. We had only 2 days in the city after coming off a 14 day cruise and this was the way to make the most of our time.

“Pepito Tour - Jose - Barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

I did two tours with Jose. First day was a 4 hour walking tour of Barcelona's old town - Barri Gotic, El Raval, El Born. An excellent historic walk through the Roman and Medieval periods. We also did the Picasso Museum which was much better than I thought it would be. Jose had lots of information, stories and aneqdotes about the city and its history.

Day two was all Gaudi! What a day with was as we did a 4 hour waling tour, we did all of Gaudi's works and Jose gave me a detailed review of the history and timing of Gaudi's works. We finished at Sagrada Familia - so impressive.

I use Private Tours on my trips and Jose is as good as I have experienced. Highly knowledgable, skilled with many stories of his City. He is flexible and moves the tour to suit you.

I highly recommend Jose!

“Barcelona, "The Best!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

Jose Soler, Pepito Tours was our guide for a walking tour of both the Gothic District and several examples of Gaudi's projects. Barcelona is a fantastic city to visit but what really made it special was how Jose Soler presented it to us. He demonstrated a level of enthusiasm that was fresh and w/ great insight!

“Excellent day of Gaudi sights!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

We booked the Gaudi and wine tour with Jose and had a fabulous time! It was obvious from the website that we wanted a slightly more in depth tour than what is the typical Gaudi tour offered by Jose, which he easily organized. I emailed Jose a list of all of the Gaudi sights that we wished to visit including Park Guell, Casa Milla and others. Jose was able to accommodate all of our wishes. He whisked us quickly from sight to sight, skipping long ticket lines. We saw all of the Gaudi sights that we wished to see while in Barcelona in just one day. We had a delicious lunch At a taps restaurant that we will visit again. Jose was pleasant and personable giving us insight into local restaurants and attractions. We all absolutely recommend him as a tour guide to all of our family
And friends.
