And about our walking tours for this 2023/2024 season…
We have our usual five regular weekly tours where you get to meet fellow walkers from all over the globe. You can also reserve private tours of these same routes to better fit your schedule with one of our guides dedicated exclusively to your group or family. On top of our regular tours we also offer five special tours with routes designed for those who want to explore more specific topics like Barcelona and landscape or Barcelona and RCR, the Spanish Pritzker Prize winners from 2017, or even a more in depth look at one of our regular tours, Modernismo XL, for example.
As always this season 2023/2024 each route is driven by a set of themes and concepts that decode the city whilst stimulating new ways of thinking about and seeing Barcelona.
Come and walk with us and live a fantastic experience!!!
