This tour made the Gothic quarter my favorite part in Barcelona. Our guide is very knowledgeable and also very articulate. Having a guide through this historical area of the city is really helpful. I learned a lot about the Spanish history through this tour. Highly recommend it to anyone who would like to not only see things but also learn the stories behind them.

Our guide, Helena, set a friendly and professional tone. She is very knowledgable and was willing to answer questions. We were able to go into La Cathedral and the story of the geese was fun. Even though I had walked the quarter the day prior, I saw new places and learned much.
