About the tour

Prepare to experience the “dark” side of Barcelona: a city of sex, drugs and absinthe and an iconic destination for travellers looking for fun since the 19th Century. Follow us to famous and lesser known corners of Barrio Gótico and Raval districts to find out the historical bars where Hemingway used to drink, the location of Picasso’s favourite brothel and the story of the first gay pride in history! Meanwhile listen to the amazing stories of famous thieves, drug-dealers and anarchists that forged the legend of “Barrio Chino” (Chinatown), one of the craziest and most surprising downtown areas in Europe.

El tour con el hombre de gafitas ha sido increíble. Hemos aprendido muchisimo, nos ha hecho una recapitulación desde la época de los Romanos hasta hoy. Incluso Contándonos anécdotas que vivió su familia y él. Es de los tours más recomendables que se puede hacer por Barcelona y no os defraudará para nada, merece y mucho la pena.

This was the best tour I’ve ever been on! Our guide Riccardo was passionate about the city and it showed in the way he spoke out the places we visited. Our tour became a little spontaneous because the size of our group we were able to move around the city faster. He made this such a personal experience by taking us to his side of town and we even had time to stop and try restaurants that only locals would know about. For the short time I spent on this tour I felt as though I was with a long time friend getting the full experience of living in Barcelona. I cannot recommend belocal tours enough!

El tour estuvo espectacular, el guía, David, nos explicó con lujo de detalles la vida nocturna, placeres y vicios de Barcelona a través de la historia, sus calles, plazas y construcciones desde la epoca de los iberos hasta nuestros días. No se puede pedir nada mejor ni más completo. En una sola palabra, sensacional!

There was nobody at the address written and we waited for 10 minutes, but nothing happened.

Response from Be Local Tours:

Hello there, We're sorry to hear of your experience you had with us and we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. Having checked with my colleagues the address written for the start of the tour was exactly as you received and the guide has assured me he was there at the meeting point at the required time. In fact, according to our check in details one of our clients was checked in at 21.05 and the rest at around 21.00. We find it difficult to believe that there was no one there at agreed time for the start of the tour and we also have a photo of the people on that tour, so we have a record of the tour going ahead. With all this in mind, we're sorry you couldn't make it on the tour and we believe there must have been a missing between you and us. Should you wish us to pass on the information to confirm our presence at the meeting point at the agreed time I am more than happy to pass that out to you. As a small company we rely heavily on our making our presence know to our clients so we can have sufficient people on the tours for our guides and that if we need to cancel a tour we contact our clients that the cancellation will take place. Regards, Patrick Be Local Tours Team
