We have already planted more than 100 trees! ;-) Our tours based on entertaining storytelling, historical accuracy and a friendly approach have delighted thousands of enthusiastic travellers and received high ratings and reviews.

About the tour

El Born is one of the most fascinating areas of our city: its old medieval quarters are full of history and fascination but not as well known and visited as others.

In this tour we will visit some of the most emblematic places, such as Santa Maria del Mar, the Parc de la Ciutadella and the Palau de la Música Catalana, but we will also talk about the less noticeable stories and details, the forgotten legends and the secrets hidden in their streets and squares.

A unique opportunity for those who are visiting and also for the people of Barcelona. We wait for you!

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give €10, some people give US‎$ 50, you choose the price.

For organizational purposes, it is mandatory to book the tour. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Me avisaron por correo electrónico 10 minutos antes de comenzar el tour que este era a otra hora. Si vais a reservar con Be Local Tours aseguraros de que el tour se vaya a hacer a la hora indicada en la reserva para que no os fastidie la planificación de vuestro viaje. No volveré a reservar con ellos por su actitud indiferente ante el problema que he tenido.

Hicimos la reserva del tour online y cuando llegamos al punto de encuentro no había nadie, esperamos unos 10 - 15 minutos y ahí no se presentó nadie. Tampoco nos mandaron ningún mail ni se nos avisó de ninguna forma, así que estamos muy descontentas.

Response from Be Local Tours:

Hola Anna. Los guías turísticos solo tenían permiso de volver al trabajo en la fase 3 de la desescalada que fue dia 22/06. Su reserva fue el 21/06 y por eso no encontraste el guía. Lo sentimos no haber informado por correo la fecha de inicio. Espero que te animes a participar en las nuevas rutas que hemos creado. Un saludo. Carlos
