Hello Ryan,
I would be very pleased to receive and guide your clients in Barcelona so they could enjoy the day visiting the main landmarks of our city with a personal guide in english.
Barcelona has a lot to offer and it's worth taking a guide first. Later, if your clients have more time, they can spend it on their own to see a bit more. So what I advice is to take a panoramic tour with me, using my Mercedes van or taxis to go from a place to another (it all depends on how many people they are).
Either ways we would be able to see the following places:
- Passeig de Gracia (we'll drive in front of casa Batlló and casa Milà/Pedrera)
- Sagrada Familia (we could visit the interior)
- Plaza de España
- Montjuic hill with the olimpic stadium (visit the interior) and great views on the port and the city.
- if we still have time (that depends on the traffic) we could see a bit of the gothic quarter (Cathedral etc...)
This programe could "fit" in about 4 hours (half a day tour) for which I would charge 250€ using the private van, or 155€ using taxis (and the clients would have to pay for the taxis)

If you'd like to hire my services all day long (8hours) we could also see the Park Güell, we would have more time to discover the Gothic Quarter, Las Ramblas, the Born district with Santa María del Mar church, Picasso museum etc... For this full day tour I would charge 360€ with the private van, or 304€ using taxis (that would be paid by the clients).

The rates I gave you are concerning my services only, payment in Euro cash on the day is fine unless you prefer to transfer the payment (in that case I would give you my bank details). Customers would also have to pay any extra cost such as taxis or entrance fees to museums and monuments. Please if you want more details about the visit or if you have any other question, don't hesitate to ask, I'll be glad to help you.
Waiting for your booking confirmation, sincerely,
Marie
Hi
Thanks for the info. We are looking for a few more things for this client !
1. We need commissionable rates from you, since we will be pre-paying for the services.
-- all private services ....
April 22 -- all day City Tour with private vehicle
April 23 -- A Culinary experience with maybe going to the market -- cooking course or something similar
April 24 -- half day city tour with drop off at the airport for a 6:00 PM transfer to other location

Let me know what you can offer us.
Thanks

Please make us an offer for:
April 22 -- all day City Tour with private vehicle
April 23 -- A Culinary experience with maybe going to the market -- cooking course or something similar
April 24 -- half day city tour with drop off at the airport for a 6:00 PM transfer to other location
Hi, I'm sorry I didn't answer so quickly. The total cost for those 3 services would be:
April 22: Full day city tour with private car: 360€
April 23: Half day city tour (visit of the market and translation for a cooking workshop): 155€ (I give you below the options for the cooking workshop)
April 24: Half day city tour with private car and drop off at airport: 300€

TOTAL OF MY SERVICES: 815€

What is not included is the price of the cooking workshop itself which can be done as a private workshop or in an opened session (together with other people)
PRIVATE: 185€ per person (lunch included)
OPEN SESSION: 60€ per person (lunch included)
I have experienced myself those cooking classes and they are great fun.

I hope that helps you in budgeting the trip, I'm not used to the "comissionable rates" but I imagine it is up to you to decide how much comission you want to add on top of my rates. Anything else you need to ask, please don't hesitate.

Hello, the place is called cook and taste, it's a very centric location, right on the Ramblas and I give you their web page so you can see what they offer.

I hope you'll find it convenient.

Hi, Ryan. I would go with this company, Hi This Is Barcelona (website). They cater to those looking for personalized, private tours in Barcelona, are extremely professional and really unique as a boutique tour company. They've dealt with many VIP's including Leonardo DiCaprio's parents, so they know how to handle all types of clients.
As far as I know the guide in this website is not an official licensed tourguide. That means he definitely cannot take clients inside the sites nor explain them - let alone skipping the lines! If the does, he's doing something illegal.
I always wondered why local "guides" that consider themselves good and professional don't get their license within the very first year of starting their business.
