We had such a great time on the Gothic Tour. Heard about it on Trip Advisor and it was just as described. The 2 1/2 walk was just the right pace and filled with interesting historical facts about this amazing city. Lisa did a great job discussing recent facts and answering all of our questions. For an Irish girl from Dublin, she guided us like a true Catalan.

We did the Gaudi tour with Miguel. We already went to Sagrada Familia the day before and thought we would hear similar things as the audioguide but we were pleasantly surprised to hear mostly new details from Miguel's explanation.

Our guide Eric from Dublin was excellent! Learned so much, great information and humor! For a free tour we did not expect much and it was maybe the BEST tour we did in Barcelona. Yes...we tipped him well...he deserved it! As far as dress code they asked below...you are going in churches so somewhat modest and just good walking shoes you won't be disappointed!

Our Gaudí Tour with Jarrod was really awesome. He was super informed about Gaudí and gave us a lot of background stories. I would definitely do the tour again!

We did a gothic quarter walking tour with Mr Gorka. He was very enthusiastic and engaged the whole group very well. He was also very well informed of the whole place. He gave great suggestions to various stuffs along the way. Wish we had more time to do their other free tours.
Would definitely recommend this to anyone wishing to see the interiors of Barcelona.
