Barcelona is a most vibrant, engaging, lively and entertaining city and this free walking tour reflects this character perfectly. The pace is laid-back while the content is rich and absorbing, the guides are young locals and are full of passion, knowledge, fun and joy and really make this experience a contender for your Barcelona trip highlight! They have so much to share about this beautiful city and strike a perfect balance between history & culture and what makes Barcelona the mesmerizing Mediterranean city it is today, with unique local insights and tips for a truly authentic, enjoyable BCN experience. It really is a must-do and we recommend doing it at the early stages of your visit to get valuable knowledge for the rest of your stay in the city. The distance covered is quiet easy to walk and group sizes are ideal for interacting with other fellow travellers while being able to ask the guides as many questions as you like. This is one of the best tours, free or otherwise, you can do in Europe and we highly, and happily, recommend it to anyone visiting wonderful Barcelona.
