As a travel professional and experienced traveler I expected a lot from my first visit to Barcelona.
I had planned our time carefully with Gaston and got so much more than expected. Our office uses Barcelona experience as our only source for this wonderful city. Gaston never disappoints. His command of "American" English is such a positive! He understands fully what each person is looking for and provides that and more to his clients. The traveler goes fully prepared with a daily itinerary and so gets the most out of short periods of time. He is knowledgeable and passionate about his city and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment with him and would not hesitate to go back and do some more exploring ----WITH Gaston.

Only a few days to spend in Barcelona and so much to see and experience. In hindsight the solution was simple....Gaston! My wife and I just returned from a 10 day trip to Spain that included 3 days in Barcelona. And the day we spent touring with Gaston as our guide was clearly one of the most memorable, if not the most memorable. From the Segrada Familia to everything Gaudi, the tour was incredibly informative with a guide who was an absolute pleasure to spend the day with. From the moment he met us at our hotel, it was obvious the love he has for the city and the pleasure he gets from sharing this. Gaston took great care in planning the day based on what we had already seen prior to us meeting him, thus making everything extremely efficient and carefree. He was even kind enough to share his recommendations for how we should spend the balance of our time in Barcelona following the tour. Of all the decisions to be made in planning our trip, the decision to hire Barcelona Experience for a private tour of this amazing city was probably our best.

Gaston was amazing , so informative and a really fun person . I would recommend anything that his company does. We chose a private 1/2day tour that set us up for things to do all week.
His direction and passion for what he does is amazing. I will go back to Barcelona and explore
even more. Thank you Gaston for the additional recommendations everything you told us was spot on.

For our recent first time trip to Barcelona, we booked two private half day tours with Gaston- a tour of Gaudi buildings, and a tour of the Old Gothic and Roman area, which also included visits to the market on the Ramblas, and the Borne neighborhood. First, booking these tours over the internet was easy and pleasant- Gaston was a great respondent and all transactions worked out well! The tours themselves, one led by Gaston and one led by his colleague Sebastian, were just terrific- we covered a lot of terrain in relatively limited periods of time, which met our needs very well since we were only in Barcelona for a few days. Both tour guides were lovely, knowledgable people who were responsive to our questions, provided both historic and practical information and overall were delightful companions for the time we spent with them! A totally pleasant and valuable way to tour the many sights of Barcelona with an informed guide! Would highly recommend this tour group!
