What you’ll do

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!

July 2018

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!
