Fabulous tour! I was impressed with our guide's information and charisma (Chris K.). This was a fabulous two and a half hours, and I would definitely recommend these tours. We ended upnat the Travel Bound bar for discounted drinks, where Chris offered to help guide us for the rest of our stay in Barcelona, including marking maps with key sights. Although this was free, we all tipped him, and it was worth every euro!

The tour is great, the city is beautiful and Jamie is fantastic! You don't pay for the tour but you tip the tour guide at the end, and they deserve it!

Chris from Australia was our guide and he did a fabulous job. We saw and learned about Barcelona's history. Some sites we would have walked past not giving it a second thought.

Afterward we got a discounted drink and talk to other travellers. Chris was great by marking our maps with interesting places to see and eat.

It's based on tips, so you decide how much to pay your guide. This makes all the guides try their hardest to impress and do a good job.

Very worthwhile!!!!!

Chris is great. Very informative and funny! I learned things that they don't tell you on the tour buses. We visited inner streets and learned about their peculiar past and how they came to be. Definitely something to do when you get to Barcelona!
