Very interesting visit. The rhythm was perfect for a family with young children, our daughters were able to play in a park, taste the churros… We learned a lot about this city that we love. Indeed, we had never taken the time to take a guided tour, it's a budget but it allowed us to have another vision of this city that we had visited many times by missing certain things. . Our guide Fred is originally French which is a real plus for communication.

A great ride to fill your eyes ... and your stomach If you are lucky enough to have Oscar as your guide, you will have an exceptional time, his knowledge of Barcelona and his kindness really made all the difference

The guide (Caesar) has adapted compared to the tour we had already done 5 years ago. He offered us a grand tour on the outskirts of town which was awesome.

Loved the experience! The guide was very nice, the group bonded and we had fun together, eating and drinking good and local food. 100% recommended!

Our guide was very Nice and his knowledge were great
