    I have lived in Barcelona for several months and I think your tour is quite a good resume of what you need to see when visiting Barcelona. For me the Ramblas were sometimes to crowded…especially with the heat, it was a hell sometimes. But then the best thing was just going to the sea and enjoy the breeze 🙂

    I would be OK on this walking tour with my daughter, she would go free! It’s good you can easily use a stroller on the tour as kids sometimes decide to go to sleep at random times. It’s good they keep you in the shade as I know how hot it can get in Spain, stopping for refreshments is important too.

    This sounds lovely. You are very brave tackling travels like this with a toddler in tow. But what a heritage you’re giving him!
    Have you ever had cold feet?

  5. Walking tours are always an amazing way to see and get to know the local culture and places. I like that the tour guide decides on the route of the tour as it adds some character to it and as no two tours are same there is something interesting for the visitor and the guide as well. Sounds lovely and not too expensive either.

  6. It sounds like a great tour run by a knowledgeable local. And great that she was aware of the heat and the children and tried to accommodate them as best she could. That’s the sign of a good tour guide!

    Sounds great! A knowledgeable local friend is what we need, but in the lack of a friend, a guide it is!

  8. Love it when a tour guide is so great with kids! Makes such a difference and really takes the stress away. That was very thoughful of her to seek out shaded streets for you!

    Seems like you had a great tour guide! Having locals take your around is the best. I’ve never participated in a guided walking tour before, $35 seems a bit steep per person. Do you think it was worth the price?

    What a great way to see this amazing area of Barcelona! The gothic quarter looks wonderful. Even if it was a little on the warmer side that day!

    Walking tour is the best way to explore a place. I did about 10 last month on my one month Europe visit. Each city is embedded in so much history. Agreed heat during summer can be harsh but nothing like exploring the place in sun as you can get some best shots.

  12. I love to walk around wherever I go. One gets to see so much in real and depth when you walk with someone who knows the place in and out. A friend, a local helps but if not guide is the best.

  13. I find good tours from locals are brilliant – they give such an insight into the city.

      I totally agree! They know information and traditions maybe other wouldn’t! Great experience! Thanks for commenting!

    This sounds so great! Went to Barcelona years ago and would love to return with kids!

    That’s the advantage of a small personal tour – a personalised tour. Glad you had someone sympathetic so you could enjoy the walk despite the heat.

    Getting a local guide always adds so much info to a place! Sounds like this was totally worthwhile!
