5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

I liked it very much! Cristina, the guide, knew a lot about the history of the city and of the book of course. By following the steps of the characters of the book you get to learn about history and social life of ancient Barcelona. Great!

Excellent tour. An entertaining guide


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2013

Outstanding! Excellent info provided. Antonia (I think that was her name), made the tour an easy path to understand the history of Catalonia, Spain. Without any doubts, I will take it again.


3 star rating: Worth doing March 2016

If you are interested in gothic architecture this tour is worth doing. The guide was knowledgeable but most of the information as given in Spanish with only snippets in English. As this as advertised as an English speaking tour we were the only English speakers we were disappointed to have missed most of the commentary.


3 star rating: Worth doing January 2014

The tour was interesting, but a bit too long, mainly due to the fact that there were actually two groups - English and Spanish - combined in one, so the guide repeated everything in two languages.
