What you'll do
Wander through some of the best neighbourhoods in the city with a Local Host who knows the city inside out, and can show you a Barcelona they know you will love!
Stop for a quick bite or coffee break at one of the Local’s favourite cafés or street food markets, a hand-picked place that suits your preferences, budget and dietary requirements.
Pop into any shops, galleries or places of interest along the way, get insider stories and stumble upon hidden gems, getting a feel for local life as well as seeing the city’s most famous sights.
Your Local Host will also advise you on the best way to spend the following days of your trip, allowing you to discover other areas of Barcelona that they know you’ll love, as well as sharing tips and tricks for how to experience the best of the city like a local and not get caught out in tourist traps!
What to expect
We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality and interests so we can assign a like-minded local who can create a bespoke experience for you.
Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.
Although you will see the main attractions in the area, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.
How this benefits you
With a Local by your side, you’ll be able to go beyond the superficial and connect with Barcelona and its people, getting to know what truly makes the city unique.
Get relevant advice to help you save time and money during the rest of your trip; using local insight you’ll be able to get around, skip tourist pitfalls and experience life like a local.
See the main attractions with the benefit of local knowledge like the best times to avoid the crowds, but also explore off-the-beaten path areas where the locals really live.
Our Local Hosts can all speak English, but many also speak Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German and many other languages so they can connect with you culturally as well as with your personality.

Bespoke half day with a Local | BarcelonaReview by: Callum M
I treated my girlfriend to a private trip around Barcelona which is how we met David. He tailored the experience to our needs and we absolutely enjoyed spending time with him as his passion for the city shines through along with being able to laugh at times and also be serious when needed. He even took some photos for us and pointed out places to eat which we went to later in the day, they were great, he really did help me alot to give my girlfriend an amazing birthday, thank you David.
