Very knowledgeable, friendly, and clearly loves Barcelona. If you’re going on a tour, try to go with her. She deserves a raise.

I am never for writing reviews (thought I read them all the time!), but I just had to sit down with a cup of coffee exactly a month later to look back and share my experience in Barcelona. TLDR: Just take the tour with Catalina!...More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best

Hi Rishi, there is no need to make a prior reservation. You can meet us directly at the hostel I suggested. We run tours that are the opposite concept of a paid tour. In our tours you pay at the end what you feel the value... More
