Had a great guided tour with Jana, who was from the Czech Republic but spoke perfect English. She was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and gave us many tips for the rest of our stay. Well worth it, even for old fogies on the wrong side of 50.

We had a great tour today with Luke. Very informative and intriguing tour. Luke showed lots of local knowledge. He took us around the old cathedral, town square and more places like this and gave the tour with a witty repertoire of quirky stories.

Mateo was a funny and knowledgable guide for this tour. He provided the right balance between historical fact and relative anecdotes. He even includes tips for shopping, eating, and drinking both like a tourist and like a local. Plus, you get to dance along the way. Highly recommended!

Amazing tour! Guide was very knowledgeable! Didn't realize that the place didn't meet on la ramblas near the Liceu station but rather is down a side street at a place called Travelbar. But we ended up asking someone who sent us in the right direction!
