Full description
Barcelona is one of the most cosmopolitan capitals in Europe. Visitors from all over the world travel here for culture, design, history, art … and innovation. It is much more than just a conventional interpretation device. With the simple gesture of putting on smart glasses and thanks to virtual reality in 360º you will be able to travel to Barcelona’s most splendid past. See what life was like in Plaça del Rei, the difference between the Plaça de Sant Jaume of the time and now, admiring buildings and areas that are no longer there or eyewitness the construction of the Santa Maria del Mar Church. However, the uniqueness of the experience lies in the fact that you will be surrounded by the atmosphere of 700 years ago. Look around and see the daily routine and situations with characters of the time, who will even interact with you. Besides the 360º ​​virtual reality reconstructions through 3D infographic recreations, the immersed augmented reality will provide you with additional information about the Cathedral of Barcelona and introduce you to the Roman Barcino. On a 2-hour guided tour, you will travel centuries back to visit a different Barcelona. With the Past View Ancient Barcelona route, experience one of the main environments of the Ciudad Condal, the Gothic Quarter, in a special way by traveling to the past. The starting point will be Rusc de Turisme. At each stop along the route, you will be transferred to a time when a historical character will accompany you by showing you the buildings, how people lived, their customs or their clothes. These points will be complemented with additional contents in 360º and with reality. Increased immersion will provide you with more information in a didactic and entertaining way. The stops of the Past View Ancient Barcelona route will be the following departing from Rusc de Turisme: Rusc de Turisme, Via Laietana, Plaza del Rey, Barcelona Cathedral, Plaza de Sant Jaume and Santa María del Mar (El Borne).

    Overall very impressive, but previous knowledge is required.

    When we appeared at the start of the tour, there was no guide! A person at the meeting point then put a phone in our hand after waiting and asking again. Then it was the guide's turn who knew nothing and wasn't in town at all. Great that we and the guide found a free time the next day and were able to catch up on the tour. Very bad organization! When the tour took place the next day, the equipment and the guide were great. We had chosen German as the language for the audio guide. The audio guide was only used at certain points on the tour. Otherwise there were great detailed explanations in Spanish. Since we speak Spanish very well, this was not a problem and a very interesting addition. We have been coming to town once a year for many years and then always 'pick' out specials. This was definitely something special! We hope that this type of tour will be expanded.

    We've been to Barcelona several times before and have taken a number of guided tours related to the history of Barcelona. GetYourGuide offered something unique: a chance to view important historical locations as they were in the (mostly) 14th century with the aid of virtual reality glasses. If you've ever wondered what these places really looked like prior to centuries of modification, this is the tour for you! Virtual reality was complemented with excellent interpretation by our guide (we had Cecelia), who had a depth of knowledge and a love for Barcelona that made our tour very worthwhile.
