What you'll do

Join a like-minded Local Host to explore a neighbourhood or two in the city, discovering hidden local gems as well as the city’s highlights, all through a local lens of course!Read more +

You could start the day learning about the locals’ typical breakfast, a cafè amb llet (coffee with milk) and pastry on a charming old town square in the heart of the Barrio Gòtic. Explore the labyrinth of twisting lanes in this part of town and wander an endless variety of shops, eateries and little bars. The 'Gothic Quarter' still exudes a lived-in vibe that makes it a feel like an outdoor museum.

A few steps away looms the Gothic Cathedral - the rooftop views and the leafy cloister should not be missed. From the Cathedral, stroll to what once was the Roman Forum where you can admire the beautiful architecture and walk until you reach the city's most beautiful Gothic building, the Basílica de Santa Maria del Mar. 

If by this time you still have an appetite for tasting the local specialities, the colourful Mercat de Santa Caterina is a modern market with endless tempting eateries, many with peculiar names sometimes difficult for travellers to decipher. Let your Local Host explain to you the various dishes and options and maybe note down their personal recipes too!

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 you will love and revealing other hidden gems that they know you’ll love. 


What To Expect

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personalities 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.
