Today we took the gothic tour with Fran. He was extremely helpful and made a great gesture to us! Due to Corona situation the only attendants were me and my boyfriend, but he still took us for a tour! He gave us a great deal of interesting info we could never find otherwise concerning Barcelina history, art, social and political life. He was friendly, positive and we definitely recommend his company! Thank you!

Just me and my partner, felt like a private tour , thanks to Covid. Was a nice experience, we learnt a lot about the city we are living (thus good activity also for locals). Many thanks to our Argentinian guide , Carlos.

We really loved the way Carlos explained the details of the tour (about district Gothic ). He made the history more interesting than we thought it may be. Great experience. We highly recommend it

I felt guilty that I hadn't got around to reviewing our Gothic Quarter Tour and guide from October 2019, the wonderful Carlos from Brazil, and there I see he is in the lead photo! This was a great "free" tour and worthy of a very generous tip. The tour covered the Gothic quarter and its 2000 year history. Carlos was knew his stuff, he was passionate and shared his knowledge of history and politics as it related to the area. Carlos had the insider knowledge and gave us lots of clues of what you might want to do if you had more time to spend here. spent a little more time exploring at the end of the tour before going off to another activity we'd booked, but we came back and spent the evening exploring futher - a great area. Thanks Carlos, sorry for my tardyness and stay safe during COVID-19.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and had family members who were involved in the conflict, so extensive anecdotal knowledge of how the locals dealt with the conflict. He gave a great account of the civil war in Barcelona and its effect on the city and its inhabitants. Well worth doing the tour!! Payment is what you want to give - we thought 20 euros each was an appropriate amount.
