I went on the Gothic quarter tour with Riccardo and it was absolutely amazing. His passion for what he does, together with his knowledge, preparation and really nice presence made the two-hours tour an unforgettable experience, one of the best ones I've made in Barcelona. I would highly recommend the tours and the company, they're fantastic.

We did the free Gaudi & Modernism tour with Patrick. What a wonderful experience. Patrick was full of energy and incredibly smart and engaging; we learned so much about the architecture of Barcelona and what it signified historically, socially, and culturally. He was an absolutely fantastic guide, and our trip to Barcelona wouldn't have been the same without the tour. Amazing! Really shouldn't be missed.

Myself and my fiancé did the Civil War walking tour with David and can definitely recommend this tour. David was an excellent tour guide and gave us a really interesting tour of the history of the Civil War. He answered all of our questions and provided some excellent recommendations. Thanks David.

We really appreciated David's knowledge of the area in this tour. His passion for this area was infectious. He gages his audience well and was so helpful. We loved the injection of humor. Well worth the time and we highly recommend it.

We had a terrific Gaudi and modernism tour on our first day in Barcelona. David was an engaging, informative guide. Perfect intro to the Gaudi sites we later visited inside on our own. Highly recommend!!

Great tour with Ricky! It was easy to spot their blue umbrella in Placa Catalunya to start the tour. The tour was 2.5 hours and covered parts of Placa Catalunya, Las Ramblas, and mostly focused on the Bario Gotico. Ricky was a great tour guide and had a vast knowledge of the culture and history of the area, including buildings that were renovated or added onto to look Gothic or old. Ricky was very passionate and easy to hold a conversation with. He answered all questions and kept the group together. At the end of the tour he also gave us a bunch of great food recommendations that ended up being some of our favorite spots of the entire trip!

Note: this is a walking tour for 2.5 hours, so BRING COMFY SHOES!

We did the Bari Gòtic tour with Patrick on a Tuesday. Small group and terrific guide. I have done this exact tour in 2016 and many other free city tours. Patrick is really a history buff who makes hearing about Spanish history and culture lots of fun. As a Spanish major in college , I’ve heard it all but forgotten a lot. Patrick brought it all back and added lots of interesting touches that anyone would enjoy, even if hearing it for the first time. My friend and I really enjoyed the tour. Thanks Patrick!!

I have done two yours with this amazing team, Ricardo for the artístic and Gaudí architecture part, and the other tour with Patrick for the historical Gothic quarter tours.
Both guys were great, very clear English, quite passionate about their job and indeed super friendly.
Almost two and a half hours each... Filled with fun, information, jokes and history...
I would even do that again if I have time
