"I started guiding when I was 17 as a tour director, and I've since traveled the world and lived in many cities to learn the 4 foreign languages that I now guide in. I have always loved to be among people from all parts of the planet, and I am so lucky now to be able to host them virtually in Barcelona," says Josep. Born and raised in Barcelona, Josep, or "Pepus" as everyone calls him, is a licensed guide with more than 25 years of experience showing people around his incredible city. He takes pride in his extensive knowledge of the masterpieces of Antonio Gaudi, the most outstanding architect of our time whose works include the Sagrada Familia, Park Güell, Casa Batlló, and La Pedrera to name a few. He has hosted many distinguished guests, including foreign dignitaries, celebrities, actors, and 1000s of other visitors around his city. "An unforgettable memory was when I was told that I had to guide a personality whose name they could not disclose, and then I had to show Barcelona to the first man that had stepped on the moon. Neil Armstrong! I felt very honored!" he says. On his tours, you might also get to discover some culinary delights. Josep loves cooking up a gastronomical storm and if you're lucky, he might just take you along to a gourmet food tour, especially "Mediterranean cooking that they would not dare to order or try on their own…and then they end up loving it forever!" he laughs. Pepus is your man if you want to get under the skin of Barcelona, and discover the culture and history oozing from every street!
Pepus has been guiding since Jul 1992

We have now done 4 of Pepus' virtual trips (as well as many others by other guides in other places). He is definitely one of the most engaging guides. We love the way he uses props to help illustrate his explanations. His enthusiasm for his home city is engaging as well as his understanding of the value of virtual trips for people who like myself, for whatever reason, find actual travel challenging. I was due to visit Barcelona this year which I doubt will now happen but having done Pepus's tours it feels like I have achieved the next best thing and if I do get there in the future, then I will have a much better basis on which to get the most from the visit than I would have from reading any amount of guide books. Well done Pepus. I would have no hesitation in recommending your virtual trips and am encouraging my friends to book with you.
