My wife and I did 2 tours, one with Xavi and one with Biel, who are both locals who love Barcelona. Their enthusiasm is infectious and their stories were entertaining and informative. Their English is fluent and they were easy to understand. Some phrases and pronounciations were different from native English speakers, but that only added to our experience.

We did two of the three Discover Walks tours on offer in Barcelona-- the Gaudi with Biel and the El Born (PIcasso) with Irene. Both guides were knowledgable and very helpful. We couldn't stop Biel talking and he ran way over the 1 hr 40 mins we expected, such enthusiasm. Well worth joining these walks. Will look for them again... More

I stayed in Barcelona for three days and have taken two of the Discover Walks Tours: the Ramblas and Barri Gotic and the Gaudì/Modernisme Tour. Both of them were excellent. The tours are free and depending on how you liked it you give a tip to the tour guide at the end of the tour. For the first one, the... More

Our very knowledge guide, Monste, knew so much and was so enthusiastic about, Gaudi and her Barcelona you could not help but be infected by her energy. Weather wasn't great but she was.

My husband and I took all 3 tours during our 6 days in Barcelona. They were all great. Xavi was the guide for Gaudi and Biel for the other 2. Both gave wonderful insights and made us feel "in the know" when we went back and toured the places we'd seen with them. The tips on bars, etc. were also... More

We did all three of the Discover Barcelona tours on offer and would quite happily have done more! Marçal and Xavi were excellent guides - knowledgeable, interesting and really engaging. There's no better way to bring a guidebook to life - plus you also get an insight into modern day Barcelona. Thanks Marçal for also taking time to explain the... More

Me and my girlfriend met Marçal by hazard. What he showed us on the following city trip was just great! You won't find a better guide in the whole city- and no tour that is so personal and interesting! Greetings to Marçal from Switzerland!

I love Discover Walks :) This was our second, third and fourth time with Discover Walks and it is just awesome. Our first tour was in Prague (best of luck to Martina). The guides in Barcelona are fantastic people. They really discover the city with you. It is a delight to spend time with them. Best of luck to Xavi... More

We did the Gaudi trip a few weeks ago with Montse and it was brilliant. She was so well informed, gave us so much fascinating information, and it was great to be told all this, as well as other things about the city, by a true local. It's lovely to see her love for the city come through as she... More
