I was initially skeptical about taking a paid night time tour. However, within the first 5 minutes I was glad I did. Lorna was incredibly knowledgeable and incredibly funny. The 2 hour tour was action packed - we had play acting, quizes, trivia, urban legends and of course a dark/heavy dose of history.
If you have an unplanned evening in Barcelona - definitely recommend this tour - You'll get done just in time for Dinner and then can also go on an enjoy the Barcelona nightlife.

I must admit, I booked this tour because the ghost walks were fully booked. But I'm so pleased I did. Our guide, a lovely Welsh girl whose name I can't remember ( she said we wouldn't lol ) mixed just the right amount of fact with fiction ( or was it? ) Some of Barcelona's history is dark and spooky enough to not need embellishment. The buildings and alleyways were all atmospheric in the dark and the 'punishments ' handed to each of us by the Spanish inquisition were a fun touch.

Glad you had such a nice time on the Dark Past tour. Your guide that night was Lowri (our Welsh guide with a difficult name to remember ;-). I am sure she will love your review too. Thanks a million for posting it.

See you next time around,

Learn about the Spanish inquisition, a very dark and deathly period, in an engaging and humorous way. Lorna is a fantastic tour guide. She is enthusiastic, engaging, well informed and absolutely delightful. I wanted to know more about the inquisition so signed up for this night tour. I really didn't know what to expect but I did not expect to have so much fun while learning. Lorna had props, pictures she projected on the the historical walls, audience participation and lots of historical stories to tell. While we were an audience of all adults, I felt she would also be every young child's favorite teacher.

Hi Sherry,

That was a fantastic review for Lorna. I couldn't agree more with you about her guiding skills. I would have also loved it to have her as a teacher ;-).

Thanks a million for taking your time to review us and I hope you will visit us again soon.

Until then,

Gorka

Eric was our guide (8 folks in party altogether). Was a lovely mix of information, insights and stories with an added pinch of humour. It came across as if Eric had put some effort in to researching and sharing the darker history of Barcelona - which was appreciated. Great fun for an evening, rounded off with a couple of beers is one of the bars he pointed out.
