I'm a world traveler, and I always take the free walking tour in every city I visit. They are uniformly great, but there were several factors to this one in Barcelona which make it unique and even more enjoyable. First of all, there are three tours. There is a basic tour of the old city, a photography tour lead by... More

This walk was perfect, revealing all the history that makes discovering a new city meaningful. Luke picked us up from our hostel (360) and walked us to the meet-up spot, giving us some cool architectural pointers along the way. Then our tour with Max was simply fantastic. It was well-paced, with the right amount of time devoted to each section... More
