Our hotel was a five minute walk to meeting place with tour guide. Meeting up was perfect and there were 7 of us and I am sorry I don't remember our tour guide's name. No reflection on her, however at this writing four weeks ago. Our guide was professional and knowledgeable and made the historical tour very interesting, and kept everyone's attention. We had just arrived off our cruiseship and wanted a quick introduction to the area where we were staying in and this tour was perfect for a 3:30 pm something to do.
This walking tour was one of the high points of my trip to Barcelona. That's because our tour guide Leah did such a great job making the city's history come alive as part of our overview of this oldest part of Barcelona. Her enthusiasm and friendliness drew you in and made you want to soak up as much of her knowledge as you could. I especially loved the opportunity to enjoy tapas and beer at the end of the trip and to enjoy the company of our group of eight.
This was our first trip to Barcelona were a family of four with two adults, in our 40s, and two teenagers 16 and 14. We took the English tour on 27 July 2017. Our guide, Núria, was friendly, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and full of information, stories, and legends of the Gothic Quarter! Our tour lasted a bit over two and a half hours, and provided us with lots of interesting information and helped us better appreciate Barcelona, its history, and its culture. We highly recommend this tour! It was lots of fun, and very interesting too!
Our guide was easy to find - she was located right where we were told to look, holding her red umbrella.
This was a great tour! Our guide was super knowledgeable and we learned a ton of interesting history and lots of little interesting tidbits of information that really illuminated they way people thought in the Gothic time period in Barcelona as we wound our way through and within the walls of the Gothic Quarter. And, we ended up in a little gem of a place for a pinxer and a beer, which was perfect. If you want to know what a pinxer is, or the difference between that and tapas, take the tour!
We enjoyed this tour.The guide was really knowledgeable and friendly. Learned some interesting facts and histories of the Gothic quarter in Barcelona that we would not have gained by ourselves. The pintxo and drink at the end of the tour was a nice touch. I can safely recommend this tour for anyone interested.
We thought we had missed the group at the meeting place. There was a street fair setting up and the area was very crowded. So happy we kept wandering and finally saw our guide with her umbrella. This is a tour with fascinating sights and stories. Of course, lots of walking and photo opportunities. We actually had a longer tour than posted. Guide was a wealth of knowledge about the history and architecture. We had a wonderful snack at the end of the tour. Highly recommended if you have a free afternoon in Barcelona and good walking shoes.
