What you'll do
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, get insider stories and stumble upon hidden gems, getting a feel for local life as well as seeing the city’s most famous sights. Be it art, history or food, there is so much to discover in Barcelona!
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.

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.

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.
