We did the free walking tour with Duncan yesterday and it was perfect. Duncan really seemed to know what he was talking about and could even tell us some fun facts that you wouldnt otherwise get to know about. I would really really reccoment doing that tour, youll learn so much more that youd expect.

My Sister and I joined this tour when we were in Barcelona 3 days ago and it was Brilliant. We only had a small group because the weather wasn't the best but it was still the best walking tour we've ever been on (and we've been on heaps). Our guide Colin was really cool and friendly took an interest in us all and made us feel comfortable. The tour was really interesting without being boring which was brilliant because it took 2.5 hrs but it didn't feel that long and had us wanting more. Afterward we all had a drink at the bar together and we were there for ages chatting about everything from where we were from to music and travel, which was an enjoyable end to the tour. Colin our guide was also really helpful in suggesting places to see, to eat, to party, were to buy tickets for shows etc which was great because we were travelling on a budget and didn't want to get ripped off. You have the option of tipping the guide at the end of the tour if you think they did well, which we did because we've been on heaps of paid tours which weren't as good as this one so we thought it was money well spent. All up I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone, it's interesting, fun and a great way to learn about the history of Barcelona and Catalonia! Brilliant!
