Be Local Tours Barcelona is a local, socially responsible and eco-friendly tour company created in 2017 by three friends: Carlos, Patrick and Riccardo. We adopt a small group philosophy of no more than 10 people per tour to give our customers the requested security, the best experience and to respect the daily rhythm of the locals. We also help fight global warming: for every 100 people that join our tours we plant a tree in Colombia with a local NGO. We have already planted more than 100 trees! ;-) Our tours are based on entertaining storytelling, historical accuracy and a friendly approach that have delighted thousands of enthusiastic travellers and received high ratings and reviews. Check us out to feel like a local!

About the tour

Join our Gothic Quarter Free Walking Tour to discover the oldest part of Barcelona and learn about Catalan history, culture and traditions.

Starting from Plaza Catalunya let us take you through the winding, narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter, the oldest part of Barcelona. We’ll show you the most interesting monuments of the Roman and Medieval city such as the Cathedral, the Royal Palace, Sant Felip Neri’s Square, the Roman walls, the Jewish Quarter and many more.

We’ll explore together 2000 years of Barcelona history from ancient ruins, old architecture through to the time of the Civil War. On the way we’ll meet kings, queens, invaders, dictators, artists, Christopher Columbus and even a Hairy Catalan!

At the end of the tour you can ask us about the best things to do in the Gothic Quarter. The closest museums and activities, great restaurants, tapas bars and the best place for Churros or paella in town!

Totalmente recomendable, el entusiasmo, conocimiento y capacidad de comunicación de David es deslumbrante. Hemos aprendido más de Barcelona en dos horas que en todos los viajes anteriores y nos ha desvelado varios secretos.

Hola,

Hoy hemos hecho la visita.

La guía muy amable, amena y lo explicaba todo con mucho detalle...muy enriquecedor.

Pero se nos ha hecho muy corto, solo han sido 90 minutos de tour...seguramente debido a que Barcelona esta vacía y solo éramos 4 en el tour .

Repetiremos

Saludos
