Visit the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona

The Gothic Quarter is one of the best walks in Barcelona. Some of its streets can be explored by any tourist by itself … but by missing all the history behind the stones, and many surprising details that only a local can show you. The historic Barcelona is a maze of medieval alleys that can be a little complicated to navigate unless you are constantly checking a map. Besides, it hides unique shops, unexpected sites and beautiful squares.

Instead, with a private guide, you can cover not twice, but three times as much as you would yourself. In addition, you receive personalized explanations of the sites, and you can see many details that you would have missed by yourself.

You will meet your Barcelona private guide in front of the Apple Store Barcelona to start a journey back to the Middle Ages.

Anna was great! She was informative without being boring, catered to our specific sight-seeing requests, and kept us fully enlightened and entertained. How this woman has so much knowledge, I don’t know! She literally had the answer to every single question we had. We stopped for a coffee mid-way as she could sense we were getting tired from walking and I enjoyed chatting to her socially. I 100% recommend her for anyone going to Barcelona!

We engaged Anna for a 3 days private tour in Barcelona. She is very dedicated and knowledgeable on every places of interest in Barcelona. When my child wasn’t feeling too well during the trip, she was flexible and accommodative to our last minute changes and requests. My family truly enjoyed our trip in Barcelona and had a wonderful time spent with Anna. If you are looking for customized private tour, Anna will be the best person to engage!!

We concur with all the previous wonderful reviews of Anna and her team. We ended up having three tours with Anna and each one was different, informative and superb. If you would prefer to soak in the city and keep your nose out of the guide books and maps contact Barcelonina. Our trip to Spain had been derailed but once we contacted Jordi, everything started to improve. These folks have it together, make great suggestions on what to do and are patient with letting you make up your mind. Barcelona would not have been nearly as fascinating without them.
