We did have a few issues finding the start place for this - the cultural centre at ~El Born is supposedly very important to Catalns but we were only 200 meters from it and none of the people we asked (including a traffic warden) recognised the name on the sheet?
Having said that once we found the start point the guide was very helpful, very knowledgeable and very flexible and is a real credit to you. We discussed that we had booked the gothic tour so he adapted the walk to concentrate more on other options. He was more than happy to allow us to spend more time on sites of special interest to us and provided much useful information for the rest of our visit. I am sorry to say I am terrible at remembering names but am sure you can identify him and hope you will pass on our gratitude.

We took a wonderful tour with Maria from Barcelona eBikes through the El Born and Gothic sections of Barcelona and got to see Gaudi's work, including La Sagrada Familia and the private houses. The electric bikes were easy and efficient and a great way to cover a lot of territory. Fortunately, we had our tour guide, Maria, to ourselves, and she made it very special for us.
