What you’ll do

This personalized experience with one of our super friendly hosts will be like spending the day with a close friend, exploring the narrow, winding streets of Barcelona. Imagine strolling through cobbled lanes flanked with cafes, tapas bars and galleries framed by a skyline punctuated with stunning cathedrals and colorful architecture.

Your local Barcelona host will take you on a journey to the heart of Barcelona, where you could visit the Jewish Quarter or step back 2000 years with a trip to the old Roman Temple.

After ticking off your must-see sights in the city, allow your host to lead you off the beaten track - we promise you won’t get lost - and offer a glimpse into authentic local life in Barcelona. Stop for a quick bite or coffee break at one of the local’s favorite cafés or street food markets before browsing the myriad of shops and galleries dotted throughout the city.

Hear stories from times old and take in the vibrant art, history and food of Barcelona. We know that a city is more than a place, but a feeling. And so that’s exactly what you’ll experience with your host, as you discover Barcelona your way.

Great morning exploring Barcelona

Jonathan gave us a great overview of Barcelona as we walked through the different areas of the city. He gave us a brief summary of the different regions as we walked. He was able to adapt to our needs as a family with kids in their twenties as well as us in our 50's. Questions about society and politics were answered as we walked. Thanks again!

Walk with a good friend

It was a great experience! I don't want a touristic guide and route. I looked for a good friend which can help me better understand a new city, show interesting places and answer specific questions (often don't regard route). And I found it! Thank you Cityunscripted and (special) Jonathan for great emotions.

Super Fun Experience

I highly recommend both City Unscripted and Patrick. My husband and I had a terrific time seeing the sites of Barcelona on foot with Patrick. While it wasn't an official tour (e.g., this church was built in 1802), it was a personal look at the city from a true local.
