  • This tour was wonderful! My guide, Alexandra, was so knowledgeable and a lot of fun!

  • Did this with friends and have to say it was a great night. We had a lot of fun with the other people on the tour too. The guide was very engaging and he really made a point to include everyone in the stories.

  • Excellent! Entertaining and informative. Learned about the history and legends of the Barri Gotic. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. Well worth it!

  • I was a little disappointed. I feel that the tour was full of dramatics but not much substance. I dont know if I learned much real history. The focus was more on storytelling and legends and wasnt sure if it was fact or fiction. i felt like it was geared toward a 12 year old boy, but there was only one child in group of 14. I wanted to mostly hear details about spanish inquisition. This was touched on but not in the depth i was expecting.

  • So much fun. Our guide new a ton of cool history, even random stuff people asked him, and threw in extra information when we passed by buildings on our way to a spot.

  • This was an amazing tour and incredibly accessible. One of the participants on the tour had a broken leg and the tour guide was super accommodating and made sure the group went at a pace everyone was comfortable with. Only thing though, please please arrive at least 10 minutes beforehand. Our tour ended up leaving maybe 10-15 mins after the departure time because we were waiting for someone else to arrive, but eventually didn't, and that meant that a few of the areas we needed to pass through were locked. Otherwise, super informative, our guide was charismatic af and the delivery of the stories he gave was well paced. 10/10 Definitely recommend! TipYourGuide
