It's all about getting to know and understand Barcelona and the region of Catalonia. We'll pass by the main Old Town sights but it's not about seeing as many highlights as possible, it's about insight. The walk isn't scripted. We'll use our many years of experience living in Barcelona and sharing our passion for our beloved city to customize each walk taking into account your interests, the time of the year, the day of the week, the weather etc.

    I highly recommend this tour. I get a lot of Barcelona history. It gives me more sense of historical spots and not just take a look.

    Albert is a very knowledgeable guide, had a great time getting to know Barcelona through him. Got to know some really interesting trivia about the Gothic Quarter and if it's really fake or not! ;)
