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!
