Can only really echo what everyone else has written, but this was a highlight of our whole holiday. We were nervous to book because we could imagine the whinging and moaning from our 2 boys (aged 7 and 10) at being dragged round the city for 3 hours. By some miracle this didn't happen, and they absolutely loved it, even... More

We really enjoyed the Kid and Family tour with Ann-Marie earlier this month. Our kids (ages 6 and 7) were entertained for the entire tour from the songs and games to the interesting facts she pointed out. She even had a booklet with some activities for them to work on along the way. While the tour kept the children busy... More

This was the perfect introduction to the tremendously exciting but sometimes overwhelming city that is Barcelona. Our daughters loved it, and thought the candy store stops were particularly fantastic. We all learned a bit of history along the way, and were very impressed by our guide's enthusiasm and knowledge. The trip to the Gigantes factory was something we never would... More

We have taken several walking tours throughout European cities recently with our two daughters, aged 9 and 11. They both agree (for a nice change) that this tour with Ann Marie was the best of them all. They enjoyed Ann Marie's stories, and noted the stop at the candy store and seeing the giants display & workshop as absolute highlights.... More

I remember your family well and I am so pleased that the girls enjoyed the tour so much. It was a full tour that day but we certainly did fit in all the main sites. I think the Giants workshop is my favourite part of the tour also. Hope you guys enjoy your last few stops before heading home. All... More

This was an absolutely brilliant activity that kept our 2 young children (7 & 4) engaged from the moment it started. We had been travelling through Europe for a month and this was the first time the kids had happily walked a city for 3 hours. Ann-Marie was amazing, taking us to places the kids would be interested in that... More

We had a great time learning about Barcelona and seeing places we never would have found on our own -- like the Giants Museum and workshop. Our 6 year old had a wonderful time exploring, playing games, and learning about the pooing shepherd. Thank you to Anne Marie!

Anne-Marie captivated our three girls from the moment we met, enticing them through the Barri Gotic streets of Barcelona. Gory stories, interactive activities and the story of the Catalan pooing shepherd made this one of the most memorable events of our holiday - even better than the trip to the Water Park according to my 7 year old! Anne-Marie was... More

Thanks so much for sharing. I can't believe I came out tops against a water park ;-). I always try to fill in walking time with games when I have younger groups as children have endless energy to channel in this direction! Thank your children for all the positive feedback. I hope you all had a great holiday here. Ann-Marie More

As a family travelling with two young children (ages 4 and 1) it is really hard to do any sort of walking tour when visiting a city. This tour allowed our whole family to enjoy the sights in Gothic Quarter and learn about some of the history of Barcelona. My four year old was completely engaged during the entire 3... More

Hi Audrey, Thanks a million for the great feedback. Your daughter did a great job walking the whole 3 hours! I am so glad that you enjoyed the Gothic Quarter as a family (that is the whole reason I designed this specialised tour). Until the next time around, Ann-Marie More

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences.
