We've been so lucky to do this tour with Miguel (remember, maybe Rafa Nadal might be a better tennis player, but won't ever been a good guide as you!), who introduced us to the mysteries and amazing stories of Barri Gòtic.
Don't miss the chance to learn history while having fun.
Miguel also had very valuable suggestions for all the tourists: place to visit, bars, restaurants (we tried two of those and loved them!). Gracias Miguel!

Thank Veleno75

Great review for Miguel's tour - wonderful to see how much you enjoyed seeing some of Barcelona with him, and discussing the tennis :)

Hope to see you again soon!

The Gothic quarter is a very interesting place to visit which can only be done while walking through the narrow streets. Urka did a great job explaining about the area and intriguing my curiosity. Thank you runner bean!

Ali was wonderful. She has a degree in classics, so was able to speak to the historical nuances of the Gothic Quarter. She is an engaging and friendly guide.

Today we had a great free gothic walking tour with Lisa of runnerbean.
She was energetic, humorous, patient and offered lots of interesting history.
These walking tours when offered free the guides should compensated by all guests when they do a good job.
Their time should be valued. They have bills to pay too. It bugs me when people sign on and then at the end cheap out.
