My boyfriend and I went on the Old City walking tour with Catherine - she was amazing :)

She was clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about Barcelona's history. She gave us lots of information through using stories, maps and role play, making the tour informative, interactive and entertaining. We also had time to go inside some of the buildings which was a bonus (Catherine carried shawls for us to cover up with so we could go inside the cathedral). She also offered us recommendations of where to eat and visit after the tour which was greatly appreciated!

I'd recommend this tour to anyone and everyone (there were kids on our tour and they seemed to have a great time too!). It really makes you see Barcelona in a new light :)

Thank you Runner Beans!

Hi Puren,

I will pass your message to Tati and Lowri (I guess she was your guide on the Old City Tour). They are both wonderful knowledgeable guides and I am sure they will love your comments :-).

Thank you so much for posting this,

Catherine was our tour guide for the old city section (gothic area) and she was friendly, knowledgeable. The tour goes for about 2 1/2 hours and I felt it gave us a good understanding of the history and attractions. Well worth the time and a definite to do.

A group of friends and I signed up for both tours - Old town and Gaudi tour expecting a peek into secrets of Barcelona. What we got was an extraordinary and authentic experience. It is difficult to choose which tour is better, so we strongly recommend both. ;)

My sister and I went on both the old city and Gaudí tours and they were a perfect way to see the city! Our guides, Lowri and Miguel were both very knowledgable and entertaining. The donation aspect made me want to give even more than I expected, and even though we could only afford 10 euro for each tour, the guides definitely deserve much more! If you are one who loves to learn about a city on foot, these tours are perfect. Although two and a half hours on foot was a bit much for me, we saw the greatest masterpieces of Gaudí and thousands of years of history through the old city tour which we would've missed on our own. They also had fantastic recommendations and were very genuine about insider tips for certain places around the city to see, which was a great personalized touch. Thank you Runner Bean for such a perfect way to see and learn about Barcelona, I can't recommend these tours enough!
