Javier introduces himself
After working as a Tour Guide for 7 years in Spain and Europe, I started working as a Local Guide in Barcelona in 1996. I also worked at the Sagrada Familia to get a deeper knowledge on Gaudi.
In first place, I’m a traveler: I love to see the world and its wonders. I am so passionate about it, that I have live half of my life in exotic places like the Caribbean, the Philippines, Egypt, Japan or the Maldives.
What we love about him
Javier is a wonderful guide, always ready to deliver the best tour you can imagine. He is extremely knowledgeable and informative, but he wants your tour to be enjoyable and fun, not tough. That’s why he chooses to deliver his knowledge by entertaining you with interesting stories.
“That is why I try to deliver what I expect to receive when I hire a guide myself. I do not want to listen only all the information that I can find online, but to the real vision that only a local can have. I expect: flexibility, relax, fun, interest and an open mind to switch to what the client is looking for. So basically: “It is all about the customers”.
He is personable, and amazing at customizing your tour based on your interests and needs: he’ll be glad to answer all your questions and show you those things in Barcelona that you probably would not have found on our own.
But above all, he’s great at sharing his passion for Gaudi:
“My favourite moment is when we get into the Sagrada Familia, and my clients are looking up with the faces full of joy…”
