There were five of us, two adults and three teenagers: one in college, a senior and a freshman in high school. We spent three nights in Madrid and five in Barcelona. We did two tours with Biel, both the Gothic Quarter and History of Catalan. His knowledge on both subjects was encyclopedic, his enthusiasm was infectious, and he was incredibly generous with his time. Biel made Barcelona and the history of its people come alive for us. He answered all of our questions, even if they didn’t pertain to the tour- he found a way to incorporate the information, such as tying FC Barcelona to the history of Catalan. He gave us a unique window into daily life in the neighborhood in which he lives (Gracia) in Barcelona. We would strongly recommend him as a guide.
Biel was a wonderful guide for our tour of Gracia. We have stayed in Gracia before, but this tour have us the opportunity to delve below the surface the visitors rarely see.
Biel is enthusiastic, engaging, full of knowledge and anecdotes. We enjoyed our morning with Biel very much!
