Me and my daughter (20 years old) visited Barcelona in august 2014. We used Google to find things to do that cold show us the city from a different viewpoint. Not just the ordinary guided tour. We discovered The hidden city tours homepage and did not hesitate to contact the site. A fast reply and we had gotten a guided tour bye Jose F. scheduled. He meet us at Nova Placa in the center of town and took us on a very special tour in the places that is not commonly visited bye tourists. All while he was shearing his life and story with us. A story of a university educated man who lost his job, and after spending his last savings on surviving he found him self on the street in Barcelona. The rough life on the street really made us understand how tough this is. JoseF was really a good guide telling us the history of the city and the history of his life. Thank you Jose F. Then two days later we met former star chef in New York: Ramon. He showed us the food market ( La Bouqueria) Being a graduate from the culinary school of New York he really gave us a grand tour of the culinary treats of Catalonia and Spain. He also sheared his story. A fantastic breath taking experience. No wonder he is writing a book about his life. Ramon`s story was very different from Jose F, but both of them had lost everything and ended up in the street, Now are both starting to get back into a normal life thanks to the The hidden city tours. We recommend as strong as possible to join these tours. You never will look at Barcelona in the same way again. And you will get two new friends. Sincerely Vilde and Kjetil Storebraten Norway
