When people go to Barcelona, they split their time inside Gaudi's creations, museums and the beach. Locals pretty much do the same. You can walk around and not really notice the culture or hear the story behind this great city. You maybe don't look up to notice a beautiful old dragon lantern or realize that Gaudi's first public work is actually street lamps in a plaza you cut across often. And no matter how many bars you visit, there's always a new one with an interesting story.


This tour was a great way for both tourists and locals alike to soak up a lot of Barcelona's most famous street's history and culture. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking to soak up the sun, wanting to get their nose outside the guidebook and into the gritty of this gorgeous city.

Wow! Great To Meet You!

I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour, Jennifer ... it was a real privilege to share some of my insider Catalan knowledge with you, particularly as you've just arrived in Barcelona after having lived in Madrid!

Also a magnificent city, but I think you know where my heart lies!
