I love free walking tours as a way to orient myself to the city, get tips/advice, and to meet people. The Gaudi tour with montes was no exception. She was very engaging as a guide and provided great information about all the sights! Definitely recommend!

My first introduction to Barcelona was through a walking tour with the delightful Montse. I found her to be knowledgeable, entertaining and very engaging. I'm just sorry I didn't have time for a second tour with her. Next time...

I have been to Barcelona before, and yet the knowledge of Montse, our native Catalan guide was overwhelmingly detailed, yet entertaining and personable. Highly recommended, whether new to the city, or a returning convert.

Thank you Monsi for the wonderful tour you gave us around the EL Born area. It was fantastic to hear your love of your homeland and all the little "secrets" you shared. I went on other free walking tours but yours was the best by far!

These free Walking tours are great. Small groups and you tip whatever you think the tour is worth. Our guide, Montse, was fanastic, and very knowledgeable about the Picasso's Barcelona. Montse was easy to spot in the Placa de L'Angel in her bright pink vest. We were only two, so had a private tour. Next time I go to Barcelona,... More

Very informative and fun. Great guides who give "local insights" on history, art and culture. Loved all their three tours :)

Over the course of two days our group of four students went on all three tours. Consistently the content was interesting, and of course, the sights were spectacular. What particularly set these tours apart from the others (apart from the friendly tip-based pricing) was the fact that locals were able to share their unique insights. Any questions we had about...

We are 7 mature adults who signed up for the Gaudi tour on our first morning in Barcelona. We arrives at 8:45 from the airport and walked to our meeting with Alex. We went to the wrong metro stop but a quick phone call to Alex got us started. Alex is not only young and beautiful but she has great... More

A friend and I went on the Gaudi Tour with the tour guide Montse, and it was just wonderful. She was waiting for us near Passeig de Gracia with an easy-to-spot pink vest and a bright, welcoming smile. It was a great way to get a feel for the magical city of Barcelona on our first day in the city,... More

We met our tour guide Monset at 5pm near the metro. She is a native from Barcelona who loves her city and enjoys sharing all the hidden secrets of the city. She was informative, funny and sweet!
