Hi. Explore Barcelona - Half Day (3 Hours)
3 hours of tour time + time for tapas with your guide
Barcelona's Signature Customized Walking Tour...and our most unpredictable. You never know what you’re gonna get!
When traveling to a new city, I do whatever possible to experience real city life, from chatting with the locals to discovering their favorite shops and restaurants to exploring the neighborhoods and ‘plazas’ my guidebooks skip over. Upon arriving in Barcelona, I began exploring relentlessly, quickly finding fascinating hidden nooks and hearing enticing anecdotes… and so, I never stopped…
If you want a truly unforgettable Barcelona experience, then I dare you to turn yourself over to us for a day. See how the locals live as you eat, drink, and stroll amongst them for a few hours. But be careful; in my case, a few hours turned into a few weeks, then months, and now, 12 years! Let us know your interests, what you hope to accomplish, and most importantly, how far off- or on- the “beaten track” you’d like us to take you, and leave the rest to us. We’ll choose a couple of neighborhoods for you, then set out together to conquer the very place that awakened my passion for city discovery – and that of most of our team members as well!
This tour is not a General Overview or City Highlights type of tour, unless you’d like it to be – let us know! This is a hands-on, nitty-gritty experience, in which you discover the inner workings of Barcelona, from a non-tourist’s perspective, and dare to go places other touring companies would never take you.
There are various ways to enjoy this experience – let us know which works best for you:
Getting around: On foot.* Bicycle.
Duration: Half-day. Full-day
*With us, there’s always a chance that your walking tours will include rides on the ‘metro’ or other forms of public transport. If so, this is included in the tour price.
We highly recommend you read our General Touring Guidelines before booking. We want you know exactly what to expect. Please feel free to propose your own personal twist on any existing route or guideline!
General Touring Guidelines:
• All tours are private and tailor-made to suit the needs of each individual client.
• All tours are in English, with other languages available upon request.
• Unless otherwise specified, tours include monument exteriors only. If you wish to tour
the interiors of any museums, monuments, or attractions with your guide as part
of your private tour, please specify during planning process, as this will determine
the guide we put you with and must be arranged in advance.
• Tours can be done either on foot & using public transport, by bicycle,
or in a private vehicle.
• Since sampling the local foods and drinks is one of the most important parts of city
discovery, we try our best in every tour to wander “off the beaten track” for traditional
snacks and/or meals in local joints along the way. Stop for a Spanish coffee or a sip of
wine; try a deliciously fresh, homemade ‘horchata’ or endulge in an order of ‘churros
con chocolate’. Or, enjoy a selection of typical ‘tapas’ at one of our favorite,
