“Great fun in Barcelona”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

I decided to do this tour at the last minute. I received a very quick response to my email inquiry. I met Jeremy at my hotel and we proceeded to run eight and half miles through the old town of Barcelona and the coastline. Jeremy was quite knowledgeable about the city and shared with me some fascinating trivia.

“One of my visit's highlights!!!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

Not to repeat the previous reviews which I totally agree with, I'll just add a few points:

- Definitely one of the highlights of my Barcelona weekend. Was thinking of running alone, but the route and company made it truly awesome.

- Robin was very responsive to my various questions and changes. Including a last minute cancelation by my (injured) partner.

- Jeremy, my guide, was a great guy to run with. The course was interesting, the conversation was fun, and is eventually ran 12Km in very good pace all through the Old City.

- I think this is a great attraction, and I recommend it to anyone who runs and is visiting Barcelona.

“Fantastic way to see the city!!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

One of the highlights of my visit to Barcelona. Agree with previous reviews - it's really a fun and different way to see the city. Great way to combine a great workout and sightseeing with a very knowledgeable, affable and patient running partner. Robin was really patient and stopped to explain different sights along the route (history, significance etc), as well as take plenty of pictures for me.

DO NOT worry, it's not a hard pace at all and there are plenty of stops! I did the 10 km old city tour and it went by really quickly...didn't feel like I ran 10 km. I havent done a run in over a year and it wasn't hard at all. he also brought water for me and helped carry light clothing in his small backpack.

Robin is a great guide and it's amazing he can speak while running. I would totally do this again, very happy with the experience. (DO NOT FORGET to STRETCH before and after though!)

“Loved this tour”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

To avoid being redundant, I will say that I strongly agree with all the excellent reviews for this running tour. I will also add how refreshing it was to run freely through the streets of Barcelona instead of the slow paced, socks and sandals traditional tours. Thank you Robin, you did an excellent job showing us and informing us of the history of your beautiful city. It was one of our favorite stops, and we hope to return some day.

“Unique & fantastic”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We were in Barcelona last summer (July 2013) and my husband & teenage sons did this--the Montjuic route. It was hot & humid & tough, but they'd do it again in a heartbeat! Great run, great info, great views & photo ops. Robin was fantastic, and this was a highlight of our time in Barcelona. THANK YOU!
