Have been on a few free walking tours in different countries. James took our free Gothic Tour. We aren't the biggest historians but James gave us a load of information, sometimes a little overwhelming but absolutely incredible! Very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to!!

Would highly recommend! Carsen our tour guide was awesome. She even emailed us a list of her restaurant recommendations and was very knowledgeable about Barcelona. A good way to start out a trip as it provides a great intro to the city.

Our guide, Stephanie, was thorough, knowledgable, & delightful! We learned the history of Barcelona and saw many of its great sites within the 2 and 1/2 hours. I would definitely recommend this free tour!
