This tour did exactly as decribed! I feel like I got to see everything in the old part of the city, while also having an idea of where to come back to to enjoy the rest of my time in Barcelona.

I enjoyed seeing the different architectural influences in the neighborhoods. The Bisillicas are very impressive with lots of details on the outside facades.
Excellent tour with Onno!

Excellent tour with Onno! He's a fantastic guide and the tour was a wonderful way to see the centre of the city. Highly recommend his Sagrada familia walking tour he does too, we did both tours on the same day and they complemented each other really well
Great time in Barcelona
