Tyler is an amazing tour guide! He knows so many fun facts and legends and hidden place of Barcelona and happily shares his knowledge with the group. He showed us places we'd miss if not him. He was very artistic and he engaged the group a lot during the tour. Also he remembered names of each member of the group. Small detail but made a difference. And in the end of the tour he gave us recommendations where to go, what to see and where to eat/drink, which was very helpful. I really recommend this guide and this tour!
