Francisco Miro was a wonderful guide. A group of 4 of us from a cruise ship toured Girona and Costa Brava with him. Not only was he knowledgeable, but he took many pictures with his camera and sent them to us. I would highly recommend any tour from Barcelona with Francisco. His car was very roomy for 4 passengers, his English was terrific, and we totally enjoyed our tour with him. You can't go wrong booking with him!

4 hour side trip to Montserrat. The trip was very well organized by Francisco and our group enjoyed it. Francisco gave very interesting comments about the sights along the way. I would recommend Francisco as a guide.

Francisco was terrific. Very knowledgeable, flexible for our desires. Picked us up at our hotel and returned us there. Showed us the highlights of his native city. Took us to a great place for lunch. Gave us some beautiful photos of the day. A first-rate guide!!

5 stars KOCHA V. 15 Sep 2014

Francisco Miro met us at our hotel and took us in his car for a whole day's trip. Turns out it was a great decision we made because Francisco was knowledgeable, experienced, thorough, and most of all easy to talk to . He understood what we wanted and delivered. We would recommend him highly. He is also a photographer and sent us a great set of pictures.

5 stars Baris C. 30 Jul 2014

Thanks to Francisco, it was a perfect tour. He pick us with his car and took to the places as agreed. Being a photographer is a plus for him. He took great photos.

5 stars Linda H. 20 May 2014

We had a wonderful day with Francisco getting outside of Barcelona and seeing Sitges, Freixenet, and the Monastery at Monserrat. It is so nice that he has his own car to tour us in -- as my husband has limited mobility. It wasn't the best weather on our tour, but we really enjoyed Francisco's easy manner and friendliness. The place he took us for lunch was so great, too!! We loved that he took lots of pictures of us and shared them with us!! Thanks Francisco!!

5 stars Linda H. 19 May 2014

Francisco was such a great tour guide. He met us promptly on time. It was great to have a private car to tour us in as my husband has limited mobility. He showed us all around the city. The tour was just the right amount of time. We went to a very nice place for lunch and saw a lot of the city -- what a beautiful city. And on top of it all he took pictures of us both -- I am usually the photographer -- but I actually got my picture taken too!! Thanks so much Francisco!!

Our guide, Francisco Miro, provided expert local knowledge and planned an excellent day touring the old town of Sitges, the mountain village of Montserrat and the cava cellars of Freixenet. The itinerary allowed time to enjoy each stop, and included lunch at a hilltop vineyard restaurant. We recommend that visitors to Barcelona explore the countryside with Francisco, who also offers complete day tours within the city.

5 stars Nancy H. 23 Mar 2013

Francisco was the perfect guide for us. We had only one day to see Barcelona. He met us at our hotel at 10 and brought us back at 6. During that time he took us to see all of the important landmarks, gave us a sense of history and, best of all, took some outstanding pictures of us. Since my husband is usually the photographer on our trips, I rarely have any pictures of him, much less us together. Now I have 15 great photos. I recommend Francisco highly. He is a delightful tour guide.

5 stars Susan S. 21 Mar 2013

Francisco Miro is an excellent guide. He collected us from our hotel and took us in his car on two days. He showed us Barcelona from Tipidabo to Mont Juic and we learned a lot from him. He speaks very good English and looked after us very well. We loved Barcelona and I would highly recommend Francisco as a good and informative guide and we were thrilled by the photos he took and sent to us.

5 stars Dorothy A. 25 Sep 2012

Francisco was an excellent tour guide. We wanted a tour of the town of Navas, which is not really a popular tourist spot. Francisco researched the town and put together a lovely tour for us. It was exactly what we wanted.

Francisco is very pleasant, knowledgeable and engaging, as well as flexible. And, we were thrilled with the photos that Francisco gave of us. We strongly recommend him to anybody visiting Barcelona. Francisco is a terrific guide and you will NOT be disappointed!!!

5 stars David B. 20 Sep 2012

We had a group of 12 people that Francisco took on an all day tour of Andorra. He took us to a neat old church up in the top of the mountains with an amazing view then we hiked around a lake followed by lunch and some shopping time in the city center. Not only is he a great tour guide but he's also an excellent photographer and provided us with photos so we will remember our trip forever.

5 stars Louise L. 01 Sep 2012

We had a full day of sightseeing with Francisco while in Barcelona on September 1, 2012, prior to boarding our cruise ship. Francisco was energetic, pleasant, and very knowledgeable. Moving about in his private car allowed us to see everything on our list. We walked through the Gotic District along the old cobblestone streets, had lunch at a small cafe that Francisco had discovered near La Sagrada Familia, and shopped for authentic espadrilles. Francisco took photos of us during the day.

5 stars Mae A. 24 May 2012

Franc was on top of things where our tours were concerned. He was quick with his email responses, and met us at our hotel at our agreed times. We left it in his good judgment to decide which places we needed to see, and experience. We did a walking tour whereby we covered the old areas of Barcelona. It was a fun walk being right in the middle of beautiful architecture, and I got to have gelato at Las Ramblas. He insisted in driving us to a lookout point at Tibidabo Mountain with this beautifu

We have had guides in the past Francisco rates at the top.

5 stars HARVEY H. 15 Oct 2011

Francisco was the BEST! We would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to see the best that Barcelona has to offer. Sending pictures to us that he had taken of my wife and myself was a great surprise and an added touch to his service. His English was excellent. If you are looking for a personalized guide, Francisco is your answer. Since our group consisted only of my wife and myself, we feel fortunate to have chosen Francisco!

I used Francisco for three days on my recent trip, as well as for airport transportation. We toured the city for two days, and spent the third day outside of Barcelona, visiting a winery and touring the countryside. He was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable, and provided a good introduction to BCN.

5 stars Elizabeth P. 30 May 2011

My family and I booked a four hour tour with Francisco and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Francisco was friendly, polite,informative and had organised a really great tour of Barcelona for us.

He also took some lovely photos of us and very kindly sent them to us via e mail.

He definitely went out of his way to make it a very enjoyable day and I would highly recommend him!

4 stars William C. 04 Oct 2018

8 hour old city tour. Other than spending too much time walking on Passeig de Gracia and Park Guell, and hence missing out on the Old Town, the tour went well. I should have discussed the itinerary with Francisco before we headed out. Francisco booked us into a good restaurant. I would recommend Francisco as a guide as he gives good explanations of sights.

4 stars Heather I. 17 Dec 2012

Francisco really worked hard to have us see a lot in a short time, and accommodate our large group on a budget. We had a great day in Barcelona with him.

4 stars Reica G. 17 May 2012

We had a very enjoyable day in the wine region thanks to Francisco, firstly visiting the very interesting Freixenet vineyard. Following this, he drove us to Sitges where we had time for lunch and a brief look around. Later in the afternoon we were taken to the Torres winery which contrasted interestingly with Freixenet. It was a well organised and well timed day and a good opportunity to see the countryside (and taste the wines!).
