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.
LOVED this tour!! It was by far the best one of my trip to Barcelona. The beautiful Spanish girl who conducted the tour was absolutely lovely, had great local knowledge and showed us quirky parts of the city that I wouldn't have seen otherwise. She taught me the basics about my camera that helped me take great photos, and recommended a fab iPhone/ iPad editing app that has made my photos look amazing! Thank you! The tour could be improved a bit with a quick stop off for some food, due to the hours stretching right through lunch (10am-3pm ish), I was a bit flagging by the end of it! There were only two people on the tour I went on, which was great, but not sure it would work as well if there were the maximum number of people on it.
I greatly enjoyed the tour. Alicia was very knowledgeable about the city. As I am an amateur/tourist photographer, her skills as a photography tutor was also exceptional. She showed me how to take more interesting and better shots with my compact camera and the camera on my smartphone.
The description should mention that scheduling the tour on Mondays is not recommended. The tour included several museums but all of them were closed on Mondays. I was advised to visit them during the remainder of my stay.
It was well worth it. For some history into a lot of the city, for some great photos and photo opportunities. Thank you for your time.
