Biel treated us to a passionately felt education history of Barcelona and Catalonia and left us with much to think about and many suggestions for our time in Barcelona. Much recommended as usual.

We had our first experience with Context Tours in Barcelona, with Oriol Catalan. We are two middle-aged professionals who were visiting with our 20 year old son. We all enjoyed the tour tremendously.
Oriol was very informative -- he addressed our interests at an appropriate level, and unlike other tour leaders we have had, did not assume we knew nothing. He was flexible in spending more time on the things that interested us. His deep knowledge of the medieval period made the tour fascinating.
We regret that we only had time for one tour during our visit -- would like to have tried the Chocolate tour!

We took the Chocolate tour with Esther in January 2014, and loved it ! Esther was a delight - friendly, personable, and very knowledgeable. We visited 3 excellent chocolate shops, plus one café where they serve the traditional drinking chocolate. Definitely plan to buy treats for yourself, and gifts to take home. Don't do the tour on a full stomach, as you'll want to enjoy all of the samples and make the most of the tour. We love Context - Barcelona is the 4th city where we've taken Context walks, and this did not disappoint !

We signed up for two tours, one on Gaudi and the other on the Gothic Quarter. We couldn't have hoped for a better experience. Biel was our guide on both, and what an expert he is! He knowledge was all-encompassing and his manner of explaining information was clear and engaging. Besides learning a lot, we had a very enjoyable experience. We were sorry that we did not have time for a third tour!

We loved our two tours in Barcelona w/ Context Travel. The first w/ Bernat of the Gothic Quarter and the second w/ Biel about Gaudi. Both were fun yet serious and informative walks, showing us parts of the city, its history and culture, that we wouldn't have discovered on our own.
