Excellent tour. Very informative. Rained the entire time and I slipped around the city in my flipflops (not my best choice!) and yet still really enjoyed the morning. Found out heaps about the history and surrounding buildings. Thanks Duncan!!!

Chris was our tour guide and he was nothing short of enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I enjoyed learning about Barcelona's history (ancient and modern) and about the Catalonian culture. He seemed to know something about everything and always had an answer for our questions. It was a beautiful day in Barcelona and it really set the bar for the rest of our trip. We became very acquainted with the city afterward.

Matthias was a great guide! We had a great time on the walking tour! We only had 2 days and 1 night in Barcelona and including this tour in our plans was great!

I happened to be staying at a hotel where this tour picks up people and decided to join in. It was great! Colin is very knowledgeable and pointed out many interesting things I would have missed walking around on my own.

Although the tour is free, tips are accepted - and I was happy to pay!

Thanks!
