Hi, my name is Hayley! I am from London in the UK and have been living in the beautiful, historical town of Tarragona for several years now! I am a Foreign Languages Teacher by profession with a degree in Hispanic Studies (including Spanish and Portuguese languages, culture and history) and I love to take people on tours in my free time! In addition to this, I love art, history, music, travelling, and meeting new people from all over the world :)

Tour description

Free tour in English! (Get ready to travel back in time to ancient Tarracco!)

Concise but complete small group tour of Tarragona covering the main attractions of both modern and historical Tarragona, finishing off in the impressive Plaça de la Font where you can go for a vermut/ drinks and nibbles if desired (optional). I will also be touching on some Spanish and Catalan traditions and culture.

Main Attractions we will visit:

  • Plaça del mercado (Market square)
  • Foro de la Colonia (Colonial Forum)
  • Rambla Nova
  • Mediterranean Balcony
  • The Roman Amphitheatre 
  • The Roman Circus
  • Santa Tecla Cathedral (where the Ancient Temple of Augustus used to lie)
  • Plaça del Rei (King's Square)
  • Plaça del Forum (Forum Square)
  • Plaça dels Sedassos (Sedassos Square)
  • Plaça de la Font (Fountain Square)

...and some other suprises! ;)

So get ready to explore and create some new memories together on your upcoming trip to Tarragona!

Please note that:

  • This is a free tour so entry is not included to any of the sites we will pass by (we will be viewing them from outside only, but they are all mostly open air so it's still close enough to get a great view!) :)

  • Make sure you bring plenty of water and sun cream (especially during the summer months)! It's good to check the weather forecast and dress appropriately for the expected weather conditions before leaving for the tour.

  • This tour can last anywhere between 2 and 2.5 hours depending on the pace of the group and crowdedness of Tarragona on the day.

  • The minimum total number of attendees for the tour to go ahead is 2 (you will be informed beforehand if this is the case).

    -All the photos above are my own photos and depict a few of the sites we will encounter on the tour :)

Hayley was very professional, thorough and well researched. The pace was good and she even personalised the tour a bit when she had worked out our extra area of interest. I would definitely recommend taking the tour if you are in Tarragona.

Hayley was a very informative and patient tour guide. She answered all of our questions, and was willing to adapt the tour to our needs and questions! She also was very knowledgeable of the history and current story of Tarragona and was even prepared with helpful tools and visual items! She is phenomenal and will recommend her to my friends when they visit.

Hayley was very good. There was a little confusion at meeting point as she didn't have a sign. She didn't always know answer to our questions but maybe our questions were a bit awkward
