Sandra is an amazing guide/owner offering the BEST of Barcelona with tons of knowledge. She delivered enthusiasm, history, passion, laughs, minute by minute. As a native of Barcelona, she has a heart for the history and the balance of old and new throughout the city. She nurtured our group to ensure our safety in the hustle and bustle of the... More

We recently took a school group of 20 students, aged 16-19, to Barcelona for the first time. They were booked in for a 4 hour walking tour and we were worried this might be too long, but our tour guide Christina was absolutely fantastic! She factored in breaks for them, and as the tour was longer than usual, she showed... More

A great way to be introduced to the finer sights of the city. Walk the steps of Picasso, drink coffee from the same table where he started as a teenage boy. Pass the thresholds of palaces and down the lanes in the Gothic area where Christoph Columbus, Gaudi and even the evil Inquisitors walked and lived their lives. This and... More

Sandra is very knowledgeable of the city of Barcelona as well as really knows how... More

We took a day trip to Sitges and started the day with a walking tour by Walking Planets. After a 30 minute train ride from Barcelona we met our guide, the lovely Sandra, at the Sitges train station. We spent a great 3 or 4 hours exploring everything that Sitges had to offer. Sandra's a true local and she made... More

If you are planning a Barcelona trip do not go without taking this tour! Sandra is a native who knows more about her city's culture and history than anything you could put together yourself. The streets, walls and buildings come alive while walking with her through the real Barcelona. Her ability to connect with people is amazing and the information... More

If you want to explore Barcelona's through the eyes of a local, then Walking Planets is the way to do it. I had been to Barcelona several times and done loads of tours of Barcelona before my first walking planet experience and I haven't looked back since. While you might hear some of the same stories, Walking Planet guides bring... More

We travel all around the world, and always try to go on a walking tour to get a feel for the place and the people. Planet Raval with Sandra was fantastic - in-depth history of Catalonia and Barcelona illustrated by places along the route; Lifestyles, public policy, education, immigration - Sandra answered the questions and helped us really understand how...

I have had two Walking Planet tours in 1 week - one walking through the Gotic district and a 3hr bike tour of which both were awesome! Sandra was humorous, very informative and took the time to ask me what I was interested in to personalise the tour. I really appreciated that! If everyone could make history as interesting and...

I could have never imagined that barcelona had so many hidden treasures. I contacted Sandra, walking planets guide, to do the planet raval, I had been a couple of times in barcelona and I felt like I needed to know about the things that only locals can tell you. She opened my eye to all what's going on in the... More
