Very good tour that addressed the questions we had about Catalan identity and independence
Biel is incredibly knowledgable about the history, culture, and politics of Catalan Independence. He wove together a compelling narrative of the role of associations in Catalan culture and respectfully brought to life the relationship between Catalonia and the Spanish government. We learned a lot on this tour and thoroughly enjoyed our time with Biel.
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.
