The tour was wonderful as the tour guide was top notch... Don't underestimate the amount of walking. Take a street map and keep track of the streets as there might be things you would like to go back to, like the pen and book store ... I tried to find them again but got lost in amongst the alleys. That might be one thing that could add... A tagged map for the customers, something with some little notes about locations and plot points.
Really nice tour, the guide was very knowledgeable and professional. You also get to see Barcelona from a different perspective.
Excellent tour, more meaningful if one reads the book as the commentaries center around that. Young lady leading the tour was fluent in English and Spanish, used together to enrich the experience for all. Fundamentally, this was a nice walking tour of the parte vieja of Barcelona. Good walking exercise as well, will work up a good appetite.
the tour and tour guide were AMAZING. Totally worth it!!! but you must read the book first, and have it with you so you can read it again after the tour. Would recommend it 100 and would even do it again.
Our guide was knowledgeable and passionate about the book and Barcelona in general. She really made it come alive for us.
The tour was just under three hours long, walking through crowded areas as well as small niches of the city. I thought it did well in capturing the mysteries of the book. Our guide was informative and full of knowledge about the story as well as the city. And the red umbrella was a great beacon!

The guide for the tour was enthusiastic and made wonderful connections between the city locations and the book. Although I was the only English-speaking member of the tour group, the guide did a wonderful job of stopping to translate when my Spanish comprehension fell behind. I would recommend this tour to anyone who has enjoyed the book.

This was a fantastic tour. Our guide knew the book and the city very well. She was just excellent. i would recommend her and this tour to anyone.
Fun tour! Our guide Cristina had one of the best reading voices I've ever heard! The tour does a great job of digging deeper into the book and really brings the book to life.
Very worthwhile. Even though I was the only English speaker on the tour and the guide spoke only Spanish, her slow speech (at my request) helped to make the tour inviting and enjoyable. Don't even consider this delightful evening walk without reading the novel.
And her patience with my poor Spanish really helped me pick up some vocabulary - another plus.
A one-of-a-kind experience, unique and providing great insights into the book, the story line and the author. Cristina, the tour guide, was amazing, friendly, knowledgeable and always ready to address any particular questions one came up with. Please keep up this kind of tours and if possible add new ones on stories that occur in Barcelona and other cities where you operate.
Tour guide was very knowledgeable and ended up being a private tour. Wonderful to walk and see the different locations and buildings talked about in the book and l loved when the tour guide read passages from the book to emphasize a location or mood. Also was able to go into some of the stores and talk to owners. Great tour, brought the book to life for me.
Although I was the on;y English speaker the guide took the time between stops to tell me what was said. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
the tour guide was very knowledgeable on this topic and was enthusiastic. the tour was good too and we found out a lot more about Barcelona than just the references to the book.
Intresting and nice guide tour , we discover unknown places , it was nice
Nice tour of Barcelona - would have liked a little more info on the book though!
Signed up for English tour. Got Spanish tour with translation into English. Otherwise good content and knowledgeable guide.
