introduced this walking tour in hostel 'casa gracia hostel' I applied for gothic walking tour but couldn't do it cos im the only one applied for it. However the guide, who come to our hostel, kindly explain about the routes they proceed and gave the advice about the local tapa place!!!!! It was really helpful cos in there, I can feel local atmophere of barcelona!!!

anyway, I decide to the original walking tour of WWA, which starts in catalunya plaza. The guide John was such a nice guide that he gladly explain details of the place and questions I asked for numerous times! The tip was worthy of it.!

I enjoyed whole 3 hours of gothic tour... very friendly tourguide who gives you solid insight into the Barcelona very early history, helping you to understand better with plenty of maps, pictures... and what is more... it is FUN... as a bonus you will find some historical facts in architectural context, which I found pretty interesting... definitely worth it

We can strongly recommend this walking tour of the Gothic area of Barcelona. Pepe, a final year architectual student, was our tour guide for our small intimate group of three. Pepe was punctual, well informed and enthustiastic throughout our 2 1/2 hour walk of the old Gothic area. Pepe spoke clearly and distinctively. We saw many fascinating sites and gained a deeper understanding of the history and a greater appreciation of the architectural features of many of the old buldings. The tour was an easy pace and at no time were we bored. There was no pressure to pay, but we felt that after such an interesting tour, Pepe should be rewarded.

I went for the Gothic tour and it was great!! Walked in a group of six persons (we were 4 friends) for 2-3 hours around town and were shown the area with the Gothic buildings. Pepe guided us through the streets and told us about the buildings, the streets and all the stories attached to them, too - Picasso, Orwell etc.
We asked many questions and he could explain everything we enedes to know!
It was such a great tour!
You pay what you can afford - I only wish I had had more money!
I recommend this tour highly to anybody who likes to know about Barcelona !
