Ah Beautiful Barcelona - how many hearts have you stolen? It’s easy to lose yourself to this wondrous city and whilst you might not be able to tick off every sight in a single day, one of our friendly local Barcelona hosts can help you tap into its energy and share with you some of what makes their city so special.

We can just see you exploring Barrio Gòtico and some of Gaudí’s masterpieces, picking up lunch from the colorful Mercat de Santa Caterina market, or enjoying a long, lazy and late lunch then musing your way around an authentic local neighborhood.

Just let us know what you think you’d like to visit, and your host will make it happen, adding in some secret Barcelona spots along the way too of course!

Weave through the labyrinth of twisting lanes framed by stunning architecture and blanketed by a vibrant community spirit or cool off at the beach - and obviously, when the time comes, indulge in some tapas on one of the streets which is somewhere of a local legend. ¡ Salud!

A fabulous day with Simone in Barcelona

Simona was a fantastic host, and planned the day completely around us, adapting it as we went along depending on our needs, and the changes in the weather! She was full of enthusiasm for this fantastic city and we packed a huge amount into a day without at any point feeling rushed.

Few days in Barcelona

Karla was excellent! This was my first time in Barcelona and we managed to cover a lot in one day. She was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and made me feel welcomed. I will definitely recommend Karla and City Unscripted to whoever wants a personalized experience in Barcelona.

Relaxed walking afternoon

Jonathan is a true local, he knows all the "traps and catches". With his advices we ate well and cheap, and he taught us what locals drink (caffe con gello, vermut.. ;) ). He is very talkative so one can never be bored. Time flew quite fast. If you are in search for a relaxed walking tour through the Gothic area with breaks at local bars and tips for good and affordable food, look no further!

Brilliant tour by Jonathan

We had an 8 hours walking tour with Jonathan. From our initial meet and greet moment, he was very welcoming. It definitely felt like a stroll through Barcelona key attractions and areas with a friend. The best thing about it was we walked without any rigid plan and we could spend as long as we wanted at any given venue. Jonathan was frank enough to say he didn’t know answers to all of the questions cos principally he is a “host” not a professional 9-5 tour guide! We really appreciated this. Apart from the obvious key tourist attractions, Jonathan will also show you more localized places that the true locals visit too if you so wish. Overall a highly recommended walk tour and more specifically Jonathan is the host for Barcelona!! Great stuff!!

Had fun with Karla!

We met our local guide, Karla after we finished our tour of Familia Sagrada. We took a taxi to the El Born district and then started our walking tour. She showed us the area, talked about it, we took pictures and tried some local food and drink. She was very personable and fun, we had a great afternoon with her! I'd recommend doing this to anyone who wants to learn a bit more about Barcelona and walk to see the area.

Interesting tour with engaging host

We enjoyed a relaxing walk through the gothic quarter and a local park with Karla. The experience was excellent, kids enjoyed it and took away some of the stress of visiting a city with kids. Karla made some excellent suggestions of things to do and places to go, including a marvellous tapas restaurant.
