Date: June 16th 2017


We have just returned from Barcelona where we took a Barcelona walking tour of the Old Town (Gothic Quarters) in Barcelona. We done our tour with Local Guddy, whose tour hosts pick and design their own tours. Our tour in Barcelona was with Argelia. This tour was by foot and was one of the most fantastic Barcelona walking tours.

The beautiful architecture in the Gothic Quarter is mesmerizing

The tour is $35 per person and you do not have to pay for little kids so for the three of us it was £70.

The tour took us around the Old City in Barcelona. It covered quite a lot of distance. You meet Argelia where is best for both of you and we chose the Hard Rock Cafe beside Plaza Catalunya.

The host

Anyone can book this tour of the Old Town with Argelia. Argelia is really nice, really friendly and so understanding. She helped us with my sons stroller and avoided the sunny streets and steps when he was trying to nap. She was aware of how Travis felt in the heat and took him to a fountain to get some water to cool him down.

The walk is family friendly and in a nice and safe area which was generally really easy to get the stroller around.

My favourite part

I loved how much Argelia knew. She was from the area and her family had been there for years, and were even part of the stories she told us about the area. She knew details and stories about every place we went which had us mesmerized the whole time she spoke. I also loved La Bouqeria Market which we walked through and explored with our guide.

My least favourite part

The heat this day was around 30 which made it really hard to walk around in. This was even harder with a kid but Argelia done her best to take us around streets she knew would be shaded. She made time for us to stop and get a refreshing drink too.
