I came to Barcelona alone and was searching for guided tours just to get a first impression of the city. I found first the "old town tour" and really enjoyed it. Our guide Mariella was amazing. She told us many facts about the history but in a very easygoing manner. She put jokes in between. So it was both: informative and fun! I highly recommend this tour and Mariella as a guide!

We were recommended to take this tour and so glad we did. We were partnered with Eric (a proud Dubliner) and another couple from the Ukraine and were treated to a splendid 2-hour walk around the Gothic quarter with a great history lesson. We would thoroughly recommend this to anyone wanting a little bit of extra knowledge about a truly remarkable city.
