Hola,

Thank you for your review! We are grateful to know that it was satisfying for you!
During the winter months, low season, we have smaller groups but we insist on having the tour even if the amount of people that show up are below the minimum. We know your time and vacation plans are precious and we don't want to infringe on that!
Hope to see you again!
Kind regards,
Maria
General Manager

Signed up last minute for the Gothic tour and it was just GREAT!
Guide was charming, smart and friendly!
We loved seeing the Gothic area that would have made no sense without a guide.
We showed our appreciation with a generous tip and felt like it was really worth it!
Maria communicated promptly with her emails to us and we found our guide easily at the Liceu opera house.
GREAT all around!

Was slightly overwhelmed when I arrived in Barcelona with everything to see and do. The Free and Fun Tour grounded me and was a great way to start off my stay there. Guide was excellent and the Gothic tour was incredible! I made a reservation in advance and liked that it started at 10am. The Neri plaza if I remember the name correctly) was incredible, as were many places we went to. I liked the tipping system, it makes the guide stay on top of things and I tipped well because she did a great job!

Hi,

Thank you for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your tour!

10am is a good time to start the tour as it gives our clients enough time to enjoy breakfast and make their way to the meeting point. Also, the city hours generally start at 10am, so it´s a good start time to see the sites.

Glad you enjoyed the places you went to and your guide!

We went in December and did the Gothic and Gaudi tours so it was just me and my daughter. We offered to not go but Ana said "no problem". She was incredibly knowledgeable and could answer every question we had. Would absolutely recommend the tours and Ana to anyone visiting the area.

Did the Gothic Tour and our group was super small, like a private tour. I could ask questions and chat with our guide. This was a big plus in the Gothic section because the streets are so small and we didn´t have to squeeze oursleves to hear what was being said. I found out things about Barcelona I never imagined and about Catalunya! Great free tour!

Hello,

Thank you for your review, we are very pleased you enjoyed your tour!

Our groups are small and have a limit of 20 people.

We find our clients tend to enjoy our small groups and our guides do too!

Kindest regards,
