Excellent comprehensive walking tour of significant Spanish Civil War history in Barcelona. Nick’s narratives style is conversational and informal as one might expect of a really good teacher. The relics and artifacts he provided really added to the sense of place, the times, the personalities and history. Although it rained off and on during our tour, Nick had a rain route that allowed us to duck into various shelters along the way. An absolute must, whether you’re a history buff or know nothing about the civil war in Spain. Nick brings that history to life. Take the tour.

This was a great experience, and I'm glad I did something that was off the usual tourist track in Barcelona.

Nick has been leading this tour for something like 20 years, and there's apparently nothing he doesn't know about the Spanish Civil War. The depth of his knowledge is extraordinary. His "walking museum" approach added a lot to the experience, as did his manner, which was compassionate, learned, and explanatory without feeling overly didactic.

The most interesting thing to do in Barcelona. A must do for anyone interested in history, anarchism, women’s movements or George Orwell. Nick is an amazing guide, the detail of the tour is extraordinary, you get to see the places where events of the civil war took place and learn about the origin, the battles and the aftermath. Nick has loads of documents to help put all the information into context. A truly fascinating and amazingly executed tour. I couldn’t recommend more.

Amazing tour by Nick! Incredibly informative and moving with great references to the personal stories of those who lived through the conflict. The use of photos and artifacts was very well done as well. Well worth it.

The tour with Catherine was superb. She gave really interesting explanations of where and how the battles took place backed up with photos and memorabilia from the time. Catherine was always open to questions and has a clear passion for the subject which made the tour very worthwhile.
I really recommend this tour in Barcelona

An amazing tour, the highlight of my trip to Barcelona. The tour is fascinating for both those with a serious interest in this part of Spanish history but also for people with no knowledge at all. Nick is an engaging guide who shares his knowledge with great clarity and enthusiasm. He finds something of interest to connect with everyone on the tour.

I can’t recommend this tour enough. Nick brings to life a complicated episode of history and provides human perspective on a complex series of political events. Interspersed with incredible photographs and artefacts this is a tour that is not to be missed. Thought provoking and moving in equal parts.

Excellent tour!!! Nick is a wealth of knowledge, super friendly, passionate about the topic and made this tour so enjoyable! We went with our two kids (13, and 8) and they loved it., especially because he brings a literal museum with him with loads of antiques, pictures, postcards, etc from the time of the civil war! The tour is about 3 hours with a lovely break for churros with chocolate. Highly recommend!

Incredible, personal tour with small group. It was amazing to see so many places firsthand, be able to feel and touch artifacts, and learn so much from such a knowledgeable guide. I don’t generally review tourist stuff I do, but I have decided to write one here because this tour deserves to be supported and celebrated. If you have any interest in the historical fight against fascism, George Orwell, or Spanish history, take this tour!

Nick comes fully prepared with a rucksack full of historical exhibits + photos and a head full of fascinating stories + anecdotes. No stone is left unturned and no question unanswered.
The locations come alive when they are shown in their Civil War setting and Nick cleverly uses the stories of real people to give the history a real human touch.
Nick adapts his courses to the interests, nationality and level of each participant and makes everyone feel really involved. His passion is infectious and by the end you'll feel fired up to find out more.
I recommend the tour unreservedly.
