Aleksandra provided a great insight to the history of Barcelona. By doing the tour sights and minutiae that one would take ages to find came easily to view and understanding.

“Perfect way to get to know the gothic part of Barcelona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

As we were a group of 5 we decided that this walking tour was probably the best way to learn about el Barrio Gotico. We booked online rather late the day before but Aleksandra replied promptly and gave us all the information we needed to meet up with her the next day. The walking tour was entertaining, informative, and colourful. We learned not only about the history of that area, which is fascinating to say the least, but also gleaned much information about local culture and traditions. One of our group had spent her childhood in Barcelona but even so she too found that she learned much from the walk. Along the route Aleksandra pointed out good restaurants, interesting shops, market places and so on and after the walk we found ourselves going back to visit those. I would certainly strongly recommend using Aleksandra, as she knows her stuff.

“We'd never experienced Barcelona as we did without Aleksandra!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Wow! Wow! Wow! This was a great tour! We were staying in the Hotel Colon right IN the Gothic Square and without Aleksandra's assistance we'd never have even dared to venture out where she took us. All the streets, which look like alleys to us Americans, were overwhelming. But with her guiding us we felt like we just belonged there. This history of Barcelona is just amazing and to see buildings that are centuries old is just overwhelming. Aleksandra's knowledge of history of this city is very in depth. I highly recommend her!
