My wife and I took a 3-hour sidecar tour recently. Our guide Quim (Joaquim) met us at our hotel. Before setting off he spent about 10 minutes asking us what we would like to see, ascertaining our preferences, and checking where we would like to end the tour, so that he could make appropriate adjustments to his route. We wanted... More

What a terrific way to see the city! Our guide, Peter, was extremely knowledgeable and the tour was tailor suited for us and what we wanted to see. We also took the option of having a glass of bubbly at one stop, a birthday toast. The tour took in all areas of the city and even the locals wanted to... More

I was a SWF traveling in Barcelona by herself for the first time. I researched tours, and this came up as highly rated (for a reason). I can't say enough good things about the tour and recommend that you take advantage of it. There is no better way to get around Barcelona, and no better tour guide than Quim! This... More

Having found this on tripadvisor, and having read the reviews, I decided to book the vineyard tour. I was a little concerned that the tour wouldn't live up to the hype, but I needn't have worried- this was incredible! We started off with a mini-tour of Barcelona, and then headed North, up into the hills above the coast. The vineyard... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
