Great tour and guide! Ann Marie made the tour enjoyable for the entire family. Our kids, 5 and 7 years old learned a lot about the history and the area in a fun way. She also engaged the adults and facilitated free sampling of local sweet treats. We highly recommend this tour, especially if you are traveling with a young... More

In fact... you can ONLY do it with children! As an adult spectator, we were as fascinated by the obvious enjoyment of the children as with the novel, well prepared and engaging content. Stunningly simple idea to entertain children for 3 hours with a wonderful and enthusiastic guide (Tati) who absolutely related to all the children who ranged from 4... More

Went to the kids and family tour with a 9 and 12 year old. Both kids were engaged in the walking tour and the guide was very knowledgable. The tour was 3 hours Long which is my only criticism. At the 2 hour point most of the kids were starting to lose interest and the last hour was a highlight... More

Ann-Marie took our family of four on a 2 hour tour of Barcelona's old roman/ gothic parts of the city - we had a fabulous time looking at hidden gems with highlights including spotting original Roman architecture merged with more modern day buildings as well as the Giants workshop, museum and sweet making. A very enjoyable afternoon and one of... More

Lovely, low key tour of the highlights of the Gothic Quarter, with some secret locations we would never have found on our own. Anne-Marie could not have been more sweet or attentive to our girls (6 and 8) and she was very accommodating in tailoring the walk to our specifications. A perfect guide for people who don't like traditional tours.... More

Booked online - very easy! The Dark Past tour was excellent. Our guide was very passionate about the subject matter and able to answer questions readily. Great walk and conversation and story telling kept our attention. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is traveling to Barcelona and wants an interesting way to spend an evening.

Thanks for reviewing our Dark Past Night Walking Tour. I am afraid that you have posted it to the wrong listing. This is the Kids and Family Walking Tour listing and we don’t recommend the night tour for children under 14. Again, thanks for sharing.

Ann Marie was prompt, friendly, prepared and knowledgeable. I recommend her for families w children touring Barcelona. She is a native English speaker living in BCN. She knows points of interest, best times to go and is very kid-friendly.

My six year old son was dreading walking for a few hours but then he didn't want it to finish. AnnMarie was great with the kids - very interactive, playing simon says as they walked. Kids loved it.
