Definetely the best way to tour barcelona. Our tour guide took us places you won't see with the big tours. It felt like walking with an old friend, who happens to be a historian showing you around their home town.

We had a brilliant time with one of the tours offered by Walking Planets! We took a bike tour around the many beaches of Barcelona first and then around some of the places in the City Centre.

We did a 2 hour tour with this company around the hidden corners/streets of the Gothic quarter, didn´t expect to get such an interesting background on the history of the city, Catolonia and Spain. We had a break in tapas bar where the locals hang out. It was a great experience! In the afternoon we went on a bike tour... More

It was a very special tour in Barcelona. I highly recomended to everyone, who is interested to have an unusual way to discover this beautiful city. Do not miss this opportunity! Even our guide knows my city Budapest, so it was really cool to have her as a guide in Barcelona :-)

I was in Barcelona during my trip to Spain and found a Walking Plantes! postcard in the hotel so I decided to turn up at the meeting point. What a surprise! We were only 3 and we got a private tour round the Raval district for 15euros each!!! Totally worth it and highly recommended! All the best to walking Planets!

Great option to discover "the other side" of Barcelona that other guides don't offer. The guide for Planet Born was extremelly nice, answered all our questions and was very funny all the way through. Quality-price is very good. Next time we go back to Barcelona we will do another Planet, and meanwhile we recommend to everyone.

The Planet Raval tour takes you off the beaten track to discover places in Barcelona you would never have seen had it not been for Walking Planets. Very informative and at the same time easy going. An excellent 2 hours in the not so well known neighbourhood of The Raval.
