We spent two days in Barcelona and did two tours with Runner Bean - Gaudi & Gothic Quarter. Both our guides were knowledgeable and passionate!! They easily answered all questions and kept us entertained and engaged during the tours. Surprisingly, there was absolutely no pressure when it came time to tip, but we were more than happy to do so. Highly recommend Runner Bean Tours in Barcelona and will be watching for them in other places we travel!!

Thank you so much for joining us on two tours and for the fantastic feedback. It is great to hear that you took so much out of your visit.

For quality purposes and in order to keep the local flavour, we only offer our tours in Barcelona but, if you search around, you will find small local companies like us in other places too :-)

I hope you had a great time here,

Gorka

We took the Gaudi tour with Zoe,she was amazing,her knowledge was outstanding.I was kept interested for the whole tour.We are going in Sagrada Familia tomorrow so it was great to get all this history and the outside of the Sagrada Famalia explained to us.You will go on the Metro with this tour,but do not worry.The Barcelona metro is amazing and if you have not yet got tickets Zoe will show you how.
This was a must do.You pay what you can.We paid 20 euro each (4 people)and you could not get a better tour for that price.

Thank you so much for joining our local company and Zoe on the Gaudí Tour. I couldn't agree more with you: Zoe is amazing and, being a trained architect, with an outstanding knowledge of Gaudí and the Modernisme movement. I am glad you had such a nice time on her tour.

See you on your next visit,

Gorka

This was the most organised, friendly and interesting tour I have ever attended to.
In order to really appreciate and understand Gaudi's architecture you must take this tour, as there are so many details hidden in every single building that are not visible from the first glance.
Miguel - our guid was very friendly and his knowledge of Gaudi's masterpieces is impressive!
I wish we could have more time to take the Old town tour as well :(
Thank you Runner Bean Tour - this was an unforgettable experience!

I took the Gaudi tour and it was soooo good. Our guide Marc was tip top and very helpful. I was not a Gaudi freak before the tour, and I'm not one now either but I still recommend it strongely. Marc made it a good story

My husband and I took a tour of the Old City with Lowri from Runner Bean tours. We had a great time learning about Barcelona; Lowri was genial and professional and kind. The tour was well organized with meet up in a central public area. Highly recommended.
