Spanish Trails was born in 2001 as one of the first small group (max. 8 pers.) day tour companies and incoming travel agencies to experience the best of what Barcelona and all of Catalunya, Spain have to offer. Our year-round, regularly scheduled day tours are all-inclusive fully guided all day experiences, though guests are more than welcome to explore on their own. We cover the corners of Catalunya including the Costa Brava, Pyrenees, Girona, Montserrat and Penedes and Priorat wine regions, as well as half and full day Barcelona city tours and food & wine tours. We also specialize in customized family tours, private touring and small group events. We use comfortable touring vans and our staff are fun, experienced local guides with a deep love and knowledge of the regional history and culture. Average group size in 2011 was 5 clients/tour and we have now proudly served over 13,000 clients over the last 12 years. See you soon! The Spanish Trails team.

For the 3rd year in a row, another superlative tour experience with Spanish Trails: Barcelona Old Quarter, All Things Dali, & Private Costa Brava. Mateus was our guide for the Old Quarter. His genuine enthusiasm for his adopted city (he is Brazilian) set a nice tone for the tour. It was much more than listening to a boring set of... More

We have to thank Alex (Alejandro) for spending the day with us and educating us on all things Dali. Probably the best tour we took in our 9 days in Spain. Alex met us right on time and he drove us to Port Llagat to see the Dali house. The entire time we were in the car, he provided us... More

This escapade with Andrew, our "teacher" and guide was a highlight of our trip! Not only is he filled with more than enough information about each location, but he was also continuously attentive to our group of 8 with rest times and humor. We WILL be back and will only settle for Andrew as our guide!

Three couples booked this private tour with "Spanish Trails" to escape Barcelona during the "Catalonia Day Celebrations". The trip was educational, and catered (flexible) to our interests. It was great. Our guide, Martin, was engaging and gave us a detailed overview of the sites. Costa Brava was colorful & beautiful. One of our companions said she could have stayed several... More

Our Costa Brava Hiking trip with tour guide Filippo was fantastic. We were picked up driven to Costa Brava, which was a nice trip by car, not much longer than 1.5 hours. Our group ended up being 4 people, myself, my boyfriend, and another couple. From start to finish we learned a lot about Spain, Catalonia, and Barcelona. Filippo was... More

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
