If you want to have an authentic experience of the old town of Barcelona, I highly recomend it! Chrisi, who was our guide, helped us to see the city from a different aspect and provided information that otherwise we wouldn't have known. She was ready to answer every question we had. It was such an amazing experience after all!

Our tour guide was originally from Greece and I can't remember her name but she was great and knew the city very well. She takes you through the gothic quarter which is rich with history and architecture. We learned a lot about the city that we would not have known just by exploring on our own. It was very well-rounded... More

We had a great time with Luke our tour guide. He was very informative and gave us great tips on our travels. It's obvious that he was passionate about the city and we appreciated that very much. I would recommend doing this tour at 1 in the afternoon because the lighting was great for pictures. We went in July and... More

If I was only allowed to do one thing during my time in Barcelona it would be this walking tour. Our tour guide was Max and if he was a teacher, history would be the most popular subject at school. He was so engaging and I was completely enthralled by all the stories he was telling us. His enthusiasm was... More

This is the second time that I've done with Travel Bound, and both times were great experiences! We were able to learn a lot of fun facts about Barcelona and get a local perspective.

What a wonderful way to learn about Barcelona! We headed to the Travel Bar within an hour of arriving in the city and could not have had a better introduction. Alex was wonderful--informative, funny, and enthusiastic. There was absolutely no pressure to tip anything but there was so much value, I can't imagine not. Thanks, Alex!

Luke was a fab & friendly guide; he obviously has a wealth of knowledge which he summarises beautifully into the two hour tour, yet can always provide deeper insight where requested. Great to be shown around a city by a someone who is passionate about it, and you come away with a new insight on the what surrounds you.. Fab.

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. 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. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night.
