Our happy clients

Francesco of Unison Routes was our Mandarin and English speaking guide for the half day tour in Barcelona that included the Gothic Quarter, Park Guell, and Las Ramblas. Everyone in our family of 10 noted quickly how in-depth Francesco's knowledge of the history and culture of Spain was. Even more noticeable was his Mandarin, which by far was the best of the many guides we used. Since my cousins and I left China when we were young, our Mandarin is not good enough for understanding historical events, whereas some older family members don't speak much English. Francesco comfortably switched between Mandarin and English, so that everyone in the family received a very good introduction to the beautiful city of Barcelona.

My husband and I visited Barcelona in 2018. Francesco of Unison Routes was recommended as a guide by friends of ours who had used him previously. We arranged for a city tour of Barcelona, an evening tapas tour in Barcelona, and an all-day tour of Monserrat and Manresa. Every tour was exceptional. The city tour gave us an overview of the city and its rich history. The tapas tour was fantastic and Francesco took us to places we would have never found on our own. We were introduced to the owners and chefs and enjoyed fabulous food, drink and music. All the while Francesco told us more stories about Barcelona, the beautiful architecture and customs of the people. The day trip to Monserrat and Manresa was the experience of a lifetime, spectacularly beautiful. Everything was arranged superbly, from the car and driver, the choir performance, viewing the black Madonna, to lunch at the monastery. Francesco is extremely knowledgeable about the monastery and the Catholic faith. It was fascinating. Our last stop before heading back to Barcelona was Manresa and the Cave of St Ignatius. We had not expected to see this sight, but Francesco wanted to show it to us and it was wonderful as well. His warm personality and impressive knowledge made our trip one that we will never forget. Anyone who visits Barcelona would benefit from hiring Francesco. If we are fortunate enough to return, we will do the same!

- Sherry Beasley (Oklahoma City, USA)

We did 4 individual tours (Sagrada Familia and Park Güell; Tapas & history in the Born and Barceloneta, Pedrera and Casa Batlló; Montjuïc on foot) with Francesco of Unison Routes to show Barcelona to our family and friends visiting us from Austria. It really was an amazing experience for all of us - Francesco completely tailored each tour to the special interests of the group - from deep historical and cultural backgrounds to local Tapas enjoyment - every tour showed a very different face of beautiful Barcelona. Francesco was not only a perfect guide, but also a great storyteller and entertaining companion during the whole day - making the tours a unique event for our family, friends, and for us. We still talk about our memories of that day. If you want to experience Barcelona from a different and individual angle with someone who has to a lot to say about this city - we can only recommend planning a tour with Francesco.

- Christoph Till (Vienna, Austria)

Abbiamo visitato la Sagrada Familia nel settembre 2019 accompagnati dalla guida Francesco di Unison Routes. E’ stata una visita meravigliosa per la bellezza della chiesa che abbiamo potuto apprezzare grazie alla competenza professionale, la passione e la pazienza di Francesco.
