Well worth it if you’re interested in the real history not just the sterilised version
Leon was great, a hilarious and eccentric guide which was perfect for the broad but dark and fascinating subjects we covered. Would recommend for sure!
Great job, Daniel
We had a great tour with Daniel! He was educational while entertaining. I like that he spent equal time on history vs. culture vs. places to visit today.
Javier is the GOAT
Javier is the GOAT. He’s very knowledgeable about the city and it’s history, and he has a great sense of humor. He also has a great list of recommendations for places and restaurants to visit throughout the city. Very much recommend this tour
Dark history fun!
I can’t stress how amazing our tour with Leon P. was! We got amazing dark history tidbits and he was so charismatic. You could tell just how much he loved the city of Barcelona. I’m so glad we got him as our guide because I know I’ll be able to recount the knowledge he shared. I wish I were in the city for longer to book him for more tours. Best walking tour I’ve ever been on.
Informative and engaging
