I am not new to Barcelona, in fact I used to live in this city. However, the three hour private walking tour with Christian was surprisingly new and gave me plenty of new knowledge about history and architecture of Barcelona. The pace of the tour was excellent, the contents a good mix of well-known sights and hidden gems. I strongly recommend this private guided tour to anyone interested in knowing more about Barcelona, whether on their first visit or as a veteran of this city.

Description

Experience neighbourhoods off the beaten track. See Barcelona through the eyes of a local.

This guided walk through the historic center of Barcelona will let you discover more than the usual: buildings and squares you will not encounter so easily.

Immerse with us into the captivating history of the city while strolling through the maze of little streets in El Born and the Gothic Quarter. Enjoy a drink in a magical little square where mostly locals go.

Learn about the most important Catalan legends. What’s the significance of the dragon that can be spotted all over the city? Why was a bat decisive in a battle? What´s the legend behind the Catalan flag?

During this 2.5 hours walk we will make the connection from medieval Catalan history and legends to what inspired architects and motivates the independence movement.

If you love history brought to life by passionate storytellers and you want to enjoy the intimacy of a small group then this is your experience. After the walk you will discover details you have not noticed before. See the city with different eyes!

In case you only speak German but not English please contact us prior to your booking.

Highlight of our trip
I usually hesitate to go on guided tours because I'm afraid of being dragged through touristy schlock by a bored and indifferent guide but in this case, I had no need to fear because this tour was fantastic! Christian was a great host and was deeply interested in the history of the area. He was friendly, charming, and genuinely cared that we had a fulfilling time. This was the highlight of our trip and I recommend it highly.

Wonderful tour
It was truly an enlightening experience.. we got to see the real historical side of Barcelona.. explained wonderfully by Christian.. he is a patient guide and explains well any query we have. If one wishes to know about the inner streets of Barcelona.. go with Christian.

Very interesting!
Christian was our guide in Barcelona... He was very knowledgeable about the architecture and showed us things that we would neverr have noticed ourselves. It was 2 hours long and it was actually only the 2 of us (2 others we're no show) but their max is 6 anyway. Great value for a small group which are sooo much better!

Perfect!
Christian’s knowledge of architecture, history, culture, and Spanish current events is extensive to say the least - we learned so much! In addition to Christian’s wealth of knowledge he’s just a great guy! So personable, friendly and accessible. He made really great recommendations for restaurants and other local points of interest. This experience was the perfect way to start our visit to Barcelona.

Great tour
It was an evening very well spent with Chris. Within the limited time, Chris walked me through some of the most important architectures in the city with informative knowledge and a great sense of humor. I truly enjoyed it and would definitely come back for his other experiences if I'm in Barcelona next time.
