      The best experiences in Barcelona are so much more varied than what you’d find on a top-10 travel list. From boisterous backstreet cava bars to brassy jazz basements to happy hour cocktails on a sprawling terrace, the things that make the city great are all simple snapshots of the local lifestyle. While it’s easy to get caught up in the tourist traps and miss out on the city’s authenticity, the most memorable experiences are the ones that reveal Barcelona’s unique culture. Our City Unscripted tours with locals playing the role of GPS, guidebook, and Google Translate, no experience is off-limits.

        Our family really enjoyed meeting with our host, Yana. We felt like we were meeting with a friend who wanted to us to experience the best of Barcelona. She was very kind and accommodating and taught us about various parts of the city. We learned so much from her and enjoyed getting to know her. I recommend City Unscripted for anyone visiting Barcelona for the first time and I also recommend Yana as their host. Thanks Yana!!

        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.

        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!!

        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.
