Our trip to Barcelona ( included my sister and my mother) was so memorable and that was made possible because we had a wonderful guide Eloi! Thanks Eloi!!! He was so passionate about his country and sharing so much information about the history, buildings, culture, performances of the flamenco, as well as included very good places to see as well as eat on our own time. I can't say enough good compliments about Eloi, but another that I must mention is that he was so compassionate with our Mother and that made the trip unforgettable to all of us especially for our Mom as she keeps talking about our wonderful guide!!! Thank you so much Eloi! If you get the opportunity to visit Barcelona you need to have Eloi as your guide!!!

I was hoping to find a gay tour operator in Barcelona and was very excited to find Rainbow Barcelona tours here on trip advisor. We booked the Gaudi and City Center private walking tours online with Eloi. He was very prompt in responding to all of my emails. Our tour guide was Marc, a very personable, professional and well spoken young man. Marc met us in the morning at our requested time at the W Hotel. The location is a bit out of the way, and actually another tour company said that they couldn't meet us there due to the distance. We had a great 8+ hours with Marc. The time passed quickly, and it felt as if we were walking around with a friend. Marc paced the day well and filled it with interesting sites and history. Yes, this was booked as a gay tour, and yes, gay sights and topics were discussed because we were interested. But, if you are not gay, or interested in gay topics, this still would have been a very pleasant day. Our tour did not include going into the Familia Segada. We did go back on our own another day, and were very glad that we did. Rainbow Barcelona Tours is a young and growing company, and they are doing everything right to succeed.

Rainbow Tours made my first trip to Barcelona fun, comfortable, and informative. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who wants to experience this city with guides who are clearly knowledgeable and highly informed, but speak to you from a personal perspective and tailor each tour to your interests. I took two different tours, the city center tour with Marc, and the Modernism and Gaudi tour wiht Eloi. Both were great. I learned so much about the city and as I was traveling alone, I really felt with both guides as if I was with a friend. They made me feel very comfortable asking questions about both the history that was being discussed during the tours, and about places that I would enjoy for drinks, dinners, and dancing. And, I must say that their recommendations were spot on. I had several lunches and dinners at restaurants they suggested and the food and the atmosphere were terrific!
Whether traveling alone, with a partner, or in a small group. Rainbow Barcelona Tours is a must. You will be treated to a unique experience that will help you enjoy all that Barcelona has to offer.

Rainbow tours, and our guide Eloi, made a day of sightseeing something unique and special. Seeing the city from a local's perspective, who is clearly knowledgeable but also so passionate about his hometown, was a real treat. And on the hottest day of our visit, easy on and off an air conditioned van for our party of 10 made getting everywhere so enjoyable and no lines at all the top sites was priceless! Lastly a stop at a local restaurant with someone to translate and recommend regional specialties was really great. As business owners ourselves, we were very impressed with how attentive he was to everyone's needs from cold waters all along the way to assuring everyone knew we could be in touch after the day of sightseeing for more tips or anything we may need. It was like having a good friend in a new surrounding. Very professional and very personal service!

Eloi's passion and love for Barcelona made him an incredible ambassador to this wonderful city. Eloi met us at our hotel on Las Ramblas and the historic tour of the old city began within feet of our hotel. He brought to life the complex history of Barcelona, blending together the historic themes of roman times, the dark ages, the glory of the late 1800s, and the oppression felt under Franco's regime. Themes important to the GLBT community were blended into the day. He was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. In many ways, it felt more like we were meeting an old friend for a tour of his hometown than like we were on a tour. He took us to places we would never have found without him and set us up with wonderful meals and restaurants that only locals would know. We enjoyed our time with him so much that we booked a second tour with him the following day.
