Snapshot into Barcelona’s History

This was an extremely good tour. An opportunity to hear about the history of Barcelona and to better appreciate the many influences that have shaped this city over the centuries. This was enhanced by a very knowledgeable guide who provided a detailed and interesting commentary. Large group sizes are generally an issue and although this was a large group it was managed well. Wandering through the winding lanes of the Gothic quarter revealed gems like the Roman ruins dating back 2,000 years that would have been missed if not on the tour. A worthwhile exercise.
