Charlie Ruiz Tours... don't be a Guiri and feel the magic of enjoying Barcelona as a local!!! Following the Top10 list of "you must do/visit" is way to easy but you will never get involved by people's energy. Do you really want to walk by through Barcelona streets and not leave the footprints of your heart in this amazing city? Taking lots of pictures will help you get a nice album to show to your family and friends but that is the same as collecting nice images with no feelings or emotions. Yes indeed, you visited a new city and you can say "I was there" in the same way as if you sit and watch the film but jumping actively into the screen and becoming the main character of that movie is much more exciting. Plus, there are hundreds of libraries and excellent History books to learn more about the city but I'm completely sure you're expecting much more right? You could even get over collapsed by lots of data and information that you could also read or find on Internet, Google and Wikipedia. But this is not what my tours are about. Moreover, are you the type of person wanting to live new experiences and adding new emotions to your visits and trips? Why should visiting Barcelona become just one more place to mark on an endless checklist of places to visit? Let's make a difference out of that! Don't you prefer creating the best story of your life? How about being the Genious of the lamp and see how the holidays of your dreams come true?

Genius, genius, genius ... tá tá tá tá .... GOOOOL !!!! I want to cry, good God! Long live football! Golaaazooo ... DiegoooL! Maradona! It's crying, forgive me! Maradona on a memorable journey, in the drama of all times. Cosmic Kite, which planet did you come from to leave so much joy during your trip to Barcelona? Do you want to relive the 700 days of Diego Armando Maradona's stay in the city of Barcelona between 1982 and 1984? You can't wait to visit the house where you lived for and for football, and not just for football, but for great moments in a dream house in the upper area of Pedralbes and with a great view over the city where they met up to 30-40 people? to enjoy a barbecue, swimming pool, tennis court, endless parties etc etc etc? Where was your usual hangout for a pizza dinner with your "Argentine clan" after the games and when / why was there a drug shooting in this place? In which famous nightclub in the upper area, a reference to the Barcelona nightlife of the time, Diego liked to do a "whiskola", dance and listen to music until the early hours of the morning? Who was supposed to delay the start time of FC Barcelona training in the afternoon with the argument that he had to be trained at the same time as the matches were played to promote the body's biorhythms and improve sports performance, when it was rumored that the real reason was the intense nightlife of Maradona? Did you know that his arrival in Barcelona in the summer of 1982 coincided with the celebration of the World Cup in Spain and that before making his official debut with Barça, he participated with the Argentina national team in 3 matches at the Camp Nou and the old Sarrià Stadium? Remember three high-profile TV commercials from the time when Maradona "said NO to drugs" or sponsored brands like McDonalds and Coca-Cola? We will learn more about a company created by its environment to manage the television and image rights from a luxury office building on Diagonal. Why, how and where did the negotiations for the transfer of Maradona to Napoli end on 30 June 1984? Was Maradona happy during his stay at Barça and in the city of Barcelona? Is all the buzz about your extra sporting life true? How was the myth of a football legend built and subsequently destroyed? Thousands of questions that we will try to answer in the Tour of Tribute to El Diego, the Legend of Maradona in the city of Barcelona.
