I'm an early-intermediate runner and totally new to visiting Spain. With my boyf at a conference I had a few long days to myself. I booked a 10K running tour of Montjuic, arranging for the guide to meet me at my hotel. My flight to Barcelona was late and cancelled, and Robin was so flexible, rescheduling my tour for the next day without issue.

Robin picked me up at the hotel and we paced ourselves in what ended up to be 12km. He brought and carried a bottle of water for me, stopped to take photos, and told me captivating stories about the sights and history.

Overall, Robin is a really nice guy that put me at ease in my first day in a new city alone. It's a fantastic idea to tour while running, no matter your level. He will adjust to your needs as you need it! I'm now inspired to try this in other cities!

The transactional portion was straightforward. No hidden agenda, no extra sales. A genuine business and a great experience. A follow up email from Robin arrived later in the day with our route map and some quips about our discussions that really made it feel personalized.

Thanks again, Robin!

This was a great running tour of Barcelona with Robin. He was very knowledgable and kept a clipped pace the whole. He has a keen interest in history, as you can tell. He'll show you the popular sights, but also show you the off-the-path stuff for those history enthusiasts like myself! It was a great way to see one of the world's greatest cities!

This was a great early morning scout of a good portion of the city. Robin and I ran 11 kilometers and his historical narrative provided a good context for when I travelled back to most of those spots I had seen during the run with my mom. Robin also recommended Cathedral Of the Sea by Ildefonso Falcones a book set during the building of the Santa Maria del Mar Cathedral, which I picked up at the Picasso Museum. It is really wonderful to be in the place and on the streets referenced in the book to understand its' history. Thanks Robin!
