“Yet another no-show”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Two previous trip advisor members have reported on the failure of this organisation to run its advertised tours, and now it's happened to us. We turned up on spec outside the Licieu opera house, and were encouraged to find two other people waiting who had e-mailed to reserve places. At 10.15 we all gave up waiting for the 10.00 tour. Other Barcelona walking tour operators seem reliable, so why bother with this one?

“Such a good free tour!!”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Loved this free tour! Our reservation was confirmed and went to the meeting point, right on Ramblas (!) in front of the Opera House. We met our guide there, a lovely fluent English speaker (a native English speaker!!) who was so nice and knew so much. She was also incredibly pacient with everyone's photo taking time and made sure we were each enjoying the tour! She took great care of us and it helped because it was a small group going in the Gothic Barrio with it's small streets. So glad the group size wasn't big! We gave a big tip and left knowing so much about Barcelona!

“Awesome tour guide and tour”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

My husband and I made our reservations with them and did the Gothic Tour afew days ago, it was awesome! One of the highlights of our trip! Not alot of hard walking, more like strolling with a super friendly and interesting guide in the Gothic area. We were pleasantly surprised!

“NO show”
Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

I had booked a free walking Tour online, before going to Barcelona.
I had dragged my family along on our first day in the great City, having HIGH expectations and lots of tips in pockets.
We came to the meeting point in due time.....already hot...June 25th, along came a Young American couple WHO also wanted to join this Tour, as they also had read "come rain or shine, we do this tour every day"
Sorry to say, we were quiet disappointed, as noone came....we waited till 15 min past......Can not recommend this
