We were on a budget when visiting Barcelona so when we saw a leaflet for Free Walking tours we were thrilled. And how glad were we that we went with Discover Walks We ended up doing all of the three tours which were so much fun and very informative. Great overview of the city and all with a personal tour...

I visited Barcelona with my parents and all of us loved the walking tour. We found it was great to learn about the city from a local. We were the only ones who showed up on the tour which was very lucky! Our guide was friendly, energetic, and extremely informative. She taught us about the history of Catalan, the surrounding...

We had 4 days in Barcelona and doing all three of the Discover Walks really gave us great insight into this wonderful city. Our first was the Barri-Gotic with Ignassi (Nacho), our second was Gaudi with Montse and our third was El Born with Alex. We found all three guides very professional, informative and very proud Barcelona natives. We received... More

We were lucky enough to be the only people on the tour (2 of us). Our guide was Monste, an extremely lively and inspired young woman who loved telling us about the dynamic history of her home town. It was a pleasure and a joy to listen to her and interact as she beautifully described a snapshot of the stories... More

We went on the Goudi tour with our very sweet guide for the day, Montse. She made the tour personal and very interesting! A smart way to learn about The history of Barcelona as well as why streets and buildings are built the way they are. Montse made it all easy to remember, both the way she told it and... More

On my first day in Barcelona I took the Picasso tour with Montse and on the second day the Gaudi tour with Alexanda. Both tours were really interesting, the guides very motivated and experts in their fields! With Montse it was only me and my friend and with Alexandra I was alone! Still they were all so full of energy... More

We did a Gaudi guided walk. The distinctive fuschia garments worn by the guide for the day, makes it easy to pick her out from the crowd that were already assembled at Casa Batlo, which was the starting point of our walk. Montse, our guide, was friendly, cheerful and informative. Having her input and explanations added so much value to... More

Hi took the Picasso tour with Montse yesterday. I was not new to the Born but Monte surprised me with the history and bringing me to new places. It was a great tour I'd recommend to everyone and Montse is really passionate with her job.
