X'se tagħmel

We will explore the most beautiful neighborhood of Barcelona's old town, 'El Born'. Forget Game of Thrones, this is the real deal! This is an authentic, local neighbourhood which has escaped some of the massive tourist crowds of the city's other Gothic quarter. We will walk through the windy medieval cobbled streets, stopping in beautiful plazas lined with cafés. We will pass one of the best coffee houses in Barcelona, where you can have time to grab a latte or iced coffee to go. We will visit some of Barcelona's most iconic and beautiful buildings, including the phenomenal Music Palace and the gothic church Santa Maria del Mar. We will learn about the city's trials and tribulations: Spanish Inquisition, the Spanish Civil War, the 'Tragic Week', the Siege of Barcelona. We will talk about rebellion, torture, repression, cultural renaissance, royal families. We'll visit a local market where you can purchase cheap and tasty local tapas like 'la bomba' and stuffed croquettes. We will walk through Barcelona's designer's quarter, perfect for taking pretty photos. Finally the tour finishes inside a beautiful public park, the happiest place in Barcelona, where you can unwind on the grass with an ice-cream or beer! By the end you'll have some beautiful photos, some tasty food, and a special insight into what makes Barcelona one of the most iconic and inspiring cities on the planet

Our guide Paulo was very personable and a good story teller. We enjoyed our time exploring the Gothic Quarter with him. Thanks to Paulo's storytelling, our niece and nephews are getting a caga tió this holiday season. I foresee much laughter and delight.

Paolo is a great tour guide with a lovely personality. The tour was fun, yummy, well-thought, and educational. We enjoyed its organization - where to go, the amount of walking / talking / eating, etc. We've gotten tons of recommendations so I'd suggest to do this tour at the beginning of your trip so that you can enjoy them !

Paulo was very nice and took us off the beaten path to places and shops that you might not come across because they aren’t on the main streets. Would recommend you come on the weekday though as some of the cafes may be closed on weekends

we visited with Alessio and he was really funny and informative. He took us local placeses in El Born and gave specific details among authentic streets. I also tasted good coffee and the most delicious crossiant. I highly recommend this tour after visiting the most popular places in Barcelona. Thanks again!

We did the tour with Alessio as a guide. We had a great time with him. Very good mixture of history and information combined with small breaks with time for coffee and local snacks. Highly recommended to join this tour.

Es war eine sehr angenehme und entspannte Atmosphäre. Es hat viel Spaß gemacht Alessio zuzuhören und er hat mit viel Humor und Witz das geschichtliche Wissen verpackt. Die 3 Stunden gingen rum wie im Fluge. Totale Empfehlung wir würden es wieder machen!
