Amazing 2.5 hour walking tour of the historical sites in Barcelona! Christian was an excellent tour guide with indepth knowledge of Barcelona! My husband and I truly enjoyed our "private" tour and would highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to know more about Barcelona! Next time we visit we will take another tour with Christian!

Wir hatten die Tour zusammen mit Michael, der uns sehr viele schöne Stellen, Gebäude und Plätze überwiegend in El Born gezeigt und erklärt hat, die wir ohne ihn nicht angepeilt hätten. Es war sehr interessant und kurzweilig. Sehr zu empfehlen!

We were guided by our wonderful host Christian, who walked us through the magical Gothic Quarter. It was very educational and the locations were places we would’ve never found on our own. We learned about the historical sculptures, art and architecture all over. We also got to sit and have a drink in a beautiful ambient corner while the sun sets. I highly recommend this easy and insightful activity.

A very interesting introduction to some of the less-trafficked parts of the old city. Christian was an extremely nice guy and excellent guide. Good restaurant tips, to top it off. I'd highly recommend.

Christian showed us areas of Barcelona we would have never discovered.It was such a superb afternoon that really felt like we experienced an authentic history of the city. We enjoyed the conversations on architecture and Spanish history. Next time we’re in Barcelona we’ll definitely book another tour with Christian. Thank you Christian for a great afternoon.

Vielen Dank Michael! Wir durften eine sehr informative und vor allem sehr individuelle Führung erleben, da wir nur zu zweit waren. Wir konnten alle unsere Fragen los werden und verbrachten ein paar wunderbare Stunden in der Altstadt. Kein Vergleich zu den Gruppenführungen mit Fähnchen tragenden Führern an der Spitze!!!!
