Like you, I am also an avid traveler; I have traveled more than 50 countries and lived on 3 Continents, until Barcelona finally caught me.

Our tour guide,Sean, was not only a wealth of historical intel, he is also a great storyteller. I leaned in for every tale he told. My husband and i loved the tour. It was well planned, easy to follow and enjoyable - even in the heatwave. Thank you Sean and the Gilligans crew.

It was very interesting, a bit short, less than 2 hours, but our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. It was nice to have a Russian option as well. Well done! Thank you, Darya.
