El tour fue interesante y ameno, nos permitió obtener una visión general de la Ciutat Vella y el Born, y el guía nos dió abundante información, con recomendaciones y tips para explorar después por nuestra cuenta. Santi es un guía bien preparado, educado, ofrece mucha información y comunica muy bien, con un punto de humor que me encantó. 100% recomendable.
