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 16 persons per tour to give our customers the best experience and to respect the daily rhythm of the locals. We also help fighting 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 based on entertaining storytelling, historical accuracy and a friendly approach have delighted thousands of enthusiastic travellers and received high ratings and reviews. Check us out to feel like a local!

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. On 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!

El tour fue excelente, solo hubo un par de personas mas conmigo, pero eso hizo que el tour fuera mas ameno y personal. El guia, Ricardo, tiene batante conocimiento de historia y se nota que le apasiona el tema. Un tour muy recomendado.
