BL, a passionate historian and lover of his city, took us around parts of Barcelona we would never have seen. We visited the gothic part and saw and leaned so much. Highly recommended.

I took this tour on my last day in Barcelona, basically to get a bit away from the crowds. The guide, Alex, took us a bit off the beaten track, mostly to the Raval part of the city, which I much appreciated. He was very enthusiastic about street art, and we had a great time spotting local artists.

A very enriching experience with a well educated guide. He takes you to the non-touristic corners of the city and gives you tips for photographing them. Highly recommended for people who like to take photos during their tour.

I would definitely recommend it. It is a good start to Barcelona. Even for me it is very informative, I've been living in BCN for 6 months.
