We were extremely happy with Jose. He was very personable, timely and the perfect host. Couldn't have asked for anyone better. He will go as fast or slow as you want. We really enjoyed his personal knowledge of living in Barcelona and growing up there.

Wonderful tour of Barcelona, Montserrat and Manressa
Jose is by far one of the best tour guides I have ever worked with in all my travels to Europe. He did a wonderful mix of lecture/activities so that the kids appreciated and understood Barcelona’s history yet making it also fun and interesting. When he realized that getting in/out of the mini van was a bit challenging for my mother who has mobility limitations, Jose changed the vehicle to a mini tour bus for the remainder of our tours. For the visit to the Black Madonna, Jose was able to take my mother as close as possible to the Black Madonna without having her stand in line for hours.
Thank you Jose for making our visit to Barcelona, Montserrat and Manressa (Oct. 20 - 22) a very memorable experience for the family. To anyone planning a visit to Barcelona, we highly recommend that you contact Jose for your travel and tour arrangements.

Best tour guide for Barcelona
I highly recommend using Jose when touring Barcelona. He is such a friendly guy and so knowledgeable about his country. I asked him not to take us to typical tourist places and he showed us unique places in the gothic quarter that no tourist would ever know about. We explored the market, Picasso Museum and he then took us for a fantastic lunch. This was one of our favourite days in Barcelona.

Wonderful day in Barcelona
My wife is handicapped. Jose took us to see all the sights and made sure that it wasn't too strenuous. We enjoyed every minute of the tour and of his informative comments. Highly to be recommended.

The only way to see Barcelona!
My husband and I spent two days with Jose in early May 2013, the first touring Gaudi sites in Barcelona and the second visiting Montserrat. Both experiences were above and beyond what we could have asked for. We learned so much and also had fun spending time with Jose, who is very friendly and interesting. He clearly knows his city and his passion was clear from the moment he picked us up at our hotel. Being foodies, we especially loved the tapas lunch on the first day and both restaurants that Jose recommended to us for more tapas and paella. If you are seeking a knowledgeable, well-valued tour, do not hesitate in hiring Jose while in Barcelona. We will no doubt plan another Pepito Tour in the future!
