“best way to see Barcelona!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

This walking tour was great! I had Aussie guy Chris G, who has been living in Barcelona for a number of years, and he had a great knowledge of the culture and history of the city. He had a knack for telling stories in an interesting and entertaining way, and made everyone feel really welcome. I feel like i got to know a lot about the city in this walking tour, and Chris also gave us great tips for the rest of our time in the city. Highly reccommended, Chris was a fantastic guide!!!

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

This tour is an awesome way to start your stay in Barna! Our guide, Mattias, was very knowledgable and entertaining. From seeing the best of the Gothic Quarter to understanding a little bit more about Barcelona and Catalunya in general, I feel so much more informed after the tour and have a little more insight into what is around me. Definitely worth the time!
