The Photography Walking Tour was full of history, as well as catchy lessons to improve one's photography skills. There was also a little individual instruction, since we had a small group. I enjoyed the walking tour very much and recommend it to everyone with a penchant for history and photography.

Very knowledgeable and fun filled tour. Jana was our guide, and we had a great time. It lasted for 2 hours but still learnt quite a bit about the history of Barcelona and lot of so called legends ;-) Kudos to the team managing such free trips.

I really enjoyed this informative walk through Barcelona. Alex was a great guide who really knew how to keep things interesting for his audience. He told us some incredible stories about Barcelona and its people and at times, I couldn't believe that this could be true. Later, I talked to people originally from Barcelona about these things and they all... More

We did this walk around the Gothic area, leaving from Travel Bar, on our first morning in Barcelona. Jana was an excellent guide, giving an informative and fun description of the area and historical events of Barcelona, which we found useful for the rest of our stay. I would thoroughly recommend the walk
