Is it a tour? Is it a game? Is it theater? It's all of these things and more: Explore the charming Gothic backstreets of the city, and meet famous characters from Barcelona’s history, played by professional actors. Listen as they tell you their tale and be entranced as they bring history to life. But take care – within their story lies the clues that will lead you to your next destination and your ultimate goal- the villainous Time Bandit.This is a treasure hunt with a twist! Tours last 3 hours and are based in the centre of Barcelona. See the website for more information

Overall, A+ tour. Extremely creative, interactive, and all around enjoyable. Enthusiastic guide and a great way to see the city center. I definitely recommend it especially if you like games, scavenger hunts, and solving puzzles.

Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and
clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an
impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica.
Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local
fish to the various restaurants running along the
marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above
serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned
Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs
