Wandering through the back streets and coming across places you wouldn't know were there, along with fascinating historical and local information from friendly guides. Free tours, e did the gothic tour with Jess who was fabulous. Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 1/2 hour amble.
Just pay the guided what you think the tur was worth- fantastic, will do a similar tour hen I return. Thoroughly recommend them.

A huge thank you for leaving such a lovely review for Jess's tour. She is very passionate and knowledgeable and that's really evident when on tour with her - thanks again for a great recommendation.

We hope to see you again soon :)

We did the free walking tour through the gothic quarter. I suggest making a reservation online ahead of time, to ensure a place on the tour. Meeting point was easy to find, look for the bright green umbrella. Our tour guide was Eric who was very good and enthusiastic. This tour focuses on the history of Barcelona and the old city. The company has other tours with different themes. Duration around 2.5 hours. One suggestion for the company is to build in a short break in the middle as some of the older people on the tour were getting quite tired. At the end of the tour, TIP THE GUIDE. There were people who took the entire tour and left without tipping. Yes, the tour is technically "free", but seriously, if you want the benefit of a guide to take you around Barcelona and explain the history and significance of what you're seeing, TIP THEM. These guides depend on the tips for income, they are not working for charity.

Thanks a million for the review. I am sure that Eric will love it as one of the new members of the Runner Bean team :-).

Thank you also for your suggestion about a break in the middle. We do schedule a short break in the Cathedral where people can rest a bit and use the toilet. However, as this tour is not that long (2.5 hours), we feel that a longer restaurant/cafe break is not really necessary. We prefer to give customers the option of choosing their own place (we are always there for recommendations too) instead of pushing a particular cafe.

I hope you enjoyed your time in our city and will come back soon,

We had already done the big bus tour to get the feel of the city and had plans for certain destinations, but we wanted to get an intimate feel for the old part of the city with all or the narrow streets/alleys that we would get lost in by ourselves. This is where RBT kicked it. It was absolutely perfect. Very highly recommended.

Miguel was the tour guide for the Gothic tour. Great knowledge of the old city. The guide also had additional visuals pictures and maps to give some context to the explanations. I have done many free walking tours, and this one was definitely one of the better ones. Also very funny guy!

Marc was our tour guide for the Gaudi tour. Excellent knowledge of the architectural history of the city. Though the tour was focused on Gaudi, the guide also showed us the works of some of Gaudi's contemporaries. I would not have been able to appreciate Gaudi's works as much without this tour.
