We travelled Europe for over 5 weeks and this was our best tour in that time! We walked the streets of Barcelona, stopping to eat, learn and watch the vibrancy of the city, and venturing into places that only a local would know about. Our guide, Barbara was absolutely fantastic, sharing with us snippets of daily life as a Catalonian. She was so knowledgeable and keen to answer our endless questions. ... more Watching the building of the human towers was an amazing experience. At the end of the night we said goodnight to Barbara and it felt as though we were saying goodnight to an old friend as opposed to a tour guide. Thank you Barbara!
