X'se tagħmel

Get to know the Gothic quarter - the oldest part of the city with the richest history. We'll cover the top must-see sites but with some unique stories that you won't hear from your standard tour. You'll get to know the story of Barcelona, some of the legends and misconceptions, and get a better grasp of the layout of the city.

We will start off at a cafe where you can taste some delicious churros and chocolate, and we can get to know each other. During our chat, we can talk about your trip and I'll give you recommendations for what to do during the rest of your time here. Then we'll begin the tour!

I will introduce a bit about Barcelona and the Gothic neighborhood in particular. Then we will walk around to uncover some of the stories of the city’s past as a Roman town, a medieval town, the Civil War, and the tragic legend of the city’s patron Saint, Santa Eulalia - Together we will discover all of the hidden secrets of the Gothic neighborhood!

In addition to some historical information, I will also tell you about local stories or anecdotes to help paint in the picture of the area so that you can create your own memories and understanding of the area and have a better view overall of Barcelona. Just follow me, your local friend!
Other things to note
The total time together will be about 3 hours, mostly walking at a very light pace (Gothic is a small neighborhood). Physical activity level is low - appropriate for seniors and youth alike.

I'm an American who has been living in Barcelona since 2010. During all of my years living here I never stopped being a tourist and I spend my free time going to cultural events and festivals where I am dedicated to increasing my understanding of the city. Despite teaching English for 5 years, I discovered that my true passion in the city was showing others around and sharing the magical feeling that I felt when I first arrived. I like to share lots of stories and anecdotes about the local history and culture as well as the local life. I am excited to be your new local friend!

Kimberly ist ein sehr guter tour Guide, wir haben spannende Infos über die Stadt und das Viertel erhalten. Sie ist auf uns eingegangen, da wir ein kleines Kind dabei hatten, war sehr kommunikativ und hat alle unsere Fragen beantwortet. Es war einfach toll!

First day in Barcelona and decided to take this tour to understand better the city. Overall the experience was ok. It’s a tour later in the evening and we would like to encourage others to get enough rest before hand as it is a lot of walking. Kimberly was welcoming, she invited us to try the local churros con chocolate along with taking the time to chitchat before starting the walking tour. Considering that she is foreign to the country, she has a well understanding of the town.

Kimberly is the best! She's an amazing tour guide and an awesome person. I had so much fun with her and learned a ton about the history of Barcelona, the Roman ruins, fascinating characters like Gaudi and Picasso, cultural tidbits and much more. I was so sad when it was over. I really can't recommend her enough!

What an experience! Kimberly knows the gothic area in and out and shows u stuff that u would probably pass by without knowing. This tour it’s must see experience if you are visiting the city for the first time. Kimberly is an Amazing guid tour. She doesn’t pull out dry numbers out that u wouldn’t remember. She tells the histories as if it she was there and makes u illustrated them in your mind. Simply amazing.

What a pleasant and informative tour with Kimberly! We started out with a chat to get to know each other, which added a sense of comradery. She is passionate about her work, friendly and engaging. Even my teen, who can be easily bored, remained interested and engaged the entire time, and even commented afterwards on how much she liked it. I'd recommend Kimberly's tour to anyone looking for a great experience in Barcelona!
