About the tour

ENGLISH ONLY TOUR. A new boutique tour (max 15 pers.) for conscious, curious, ADULT TRAVELLERS that we have spent a lot of time creating exclusively for you as a GuruWalk guest.

Our walk is designed specifically with the intention of making it a perfect primer to our beloved Barcelona. In a fun and entertaining way, you’ll get introduced to our remarkable city and region, it's more than 2000 years of fascinating history, layout, architecture and vibrant culture. Slowly we'll together explore the narrow medieval alleys, winding streets and charming squares of Barcelona's famous historical centre, the Old Town 'Ciutat Vella' and it's most famous part, the Gothic Quarter 'Barri Gòtic'. We'll share some of its many stories and legends and talk about some of the most colourful of the characters, royalties, saints, knights, creatures, daring explorers, traders and artists who built our fascinating city.

You will get a very educational walk balanced between information and entertainment. It is custom made for you to be the ultimate introduction to both the city and to the Barcelona way of life. Plenty of up-to-date local insider tips on things to do in and around the city, plus where to eat, drink, shop and explore will also be given. We'll make sure that no-one feels like a tourist in a big group, but like a friend visiting.

What you need to bring:

– An open mind, willingness to learn and a smile

– Drinking water, the tour is about 2.5 hours long

– Appropriate clothing for walking and for the current weather condition

– A camera! There will be plenty of picture opportunities.

If you enjoyed the tour and feel that your guide was great, it is very much appreciated if you leave a tip at the end. :-) Enjoy our beloved Barcelona!
