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.

Fiorella was very kind and an excellent guide. Showed u’s beatiful buildings and places outside the normal tourist rutes. Can only be recommended if you want to see Barcelona
