    Alex is a great guide Hola,

    My wife and I have done two of your walking tours with Alex as the guide (Modernism on Friday at 5.30 pm and Gotic today at 9.30 am). I want to write to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed both tours. Alex was an excellent guide. We learnt a huge amount about architecture and about the history of Barcelona on the tour. Alex generously shared his general and local knowledge to give unusual perspectives on things, and we enjoyed his comments and his sense of humour. Thank you very much for wonderful and great value experiences.

    I liked it very much! Cristina...and the Cathedral of the Sea I liked it very much! Cristina, the guide, knew a lot about the history of the city and of the book of

    course. By following the steps of the characters of the book you get to learn about history and social life

    of ancient Barcelona. Great!

    Excelente viaje por el tiempo conducido por una guía inmejorable. a guía nos condució por los espacios de la catedral del Mar de una forma profesional, con conocimiento histórico. Explicó el recorrido y su historia de una forma amena, profesional y, lo más importante, desde el corazón. Eso explica que lo recuerde todo claramente cuando normalmente en estos casos al cabo de un rato ya no me acuerdo de nada...!

    Gracias por la experiencia.

    5 star rating La sombra del viento, una experiencia maravillosa Fue como conectarse con el libro, algo mágico, algo indescriptible por las sensaciones y sentimientos de los lugares imaginados por lo escrito en el libro. Me emocione mucho. Me encanto. A aquellos a los que les gustó el libro, hagánlo. Más

    5 star rating A Unique Way to Tour the City I love ghost tours and try to find one in every city I am visiting! This was a wonderful way to see the sights and learn some of the legends of Barcelona. Our tour guide was an AMAZING and very animated story teller. I was on the English/Spanish tour and her transition between the two languages made the stories even more captivating. We had a large group, which was fine for the most part, but would have preferred a group . of maybe 8 max. More

    La ruta literaria de la Sombra del viento es preciosa de principio a fin, tanto por el recorrido como por el contenido. Su guía, Cristina, tiene gran parte de la responsabilidad, se notan sus años de experiencia haciendo esta ruta. Para amenizar la visita, introduce fragmentos de lectura del libro para que nos podamos situar aún mejor, recordando algunos detalles que quizá habían quedado un poco borrossos.

    Todos los sitios visitados son emblemáticos y tienen relevancia en el libro, y ella nos explica cuáles son aquellas cosas verídicas y cuales son aquellas cosas en las que el autor se ha concedido alguna licencia de ficción. Nos explica como conoció a Ruiz Zafón para poder elaborar la ruta, algo que se destila a lo largo de la tarde.

    Un plan genial de sábado por la tarde, ¡muy recomendable!

    5 star rating Buena manera de disfrutar de una mañana de domingo Hace tiempo que me leí el libro La Catedral del Mar y tenía ganas de realizar el tour. Este tour es recomendable tanto para personas que han leído o han visto la Catedral del Mar como para personas que no lo han hecho. Alba la guía muy profesional y puntual. Nos encantó el plus de ir explicando y convinando con fragmentos del libro. Un diez.

    3 star rating Ghost Tour of Barcelona Our guide was lovely and she handled the large group really well. Not very scary or even what I would consider a ghost tour. She was however a great story teller and kept me interested even if it wasn’t what I expected.

    4 star rating Bien El hecho de que el tour se haga en español e inglés ralentiza un poco las explicaciones. Por lo demás, muy bien.

    5 star rating Stories and Legends of the Gothic Quarter: excellent tour and guide My husband and I took this tour in May (2018). Our guide Giovanna, was absolutely fantastic! She was so knowledgeable about the Gothic Quarter and made history come to life. She was enthusiastic, very friendly and her English was impeccable. We had another couple on the tour from Spain, and Giovanna was terrific in switching back and forth from Spanish to English without making any of us feel that we were missing anything. This tour was one of the highlights of our Barcelona vacation.

    5 star rating Tour Sombra del Viento El tour de la Sombra del Viento te permite conocer toda la zona antigua de Barcelona de forma muy amena. El guía te lleva a recorrer los sitios en los que se desarrolla la novela (a excepción del Tibidabo) y lee los fragmentos de la obra en que se mencionan dichos lugares, esto último es muy útil para que quienes leyeron el libro hace tiempo recuerden bien a qué parte se está refiriendo. Dicho lo anterior, no es necesario ser fan de los libros para disfrutar el tour, pues también se habla mucho de la historia de la ciudad y de los lugares que se visitan. En conclusión, es una gran forma de conocer el casco antiguo de Barcelona.

    5 star rating La sombra del viento fabuloso recorrido Me encantó recorrer las calles y lugraes descritos en el libro la guía sabía de lo que hablaba, conoce bien los libros y al autor. Lo de la tienda donde muestran la pluma es increíble. Si eres fan del cementerio de los libros olvidados no dudes en hacer el recorriddo.

    Sant Pere de Rodes, tocando el cielo en el PN Cap de Creus Muy recomendable la visita guiada de Sant Pere de Rodes. La guía, Carla, muy profesional y lo hizo muy bien. La vista al Cap de Creus impagable. Y para los que se vean con fuerzas, pueden llegar caminando desde varios puntos de la zona.

    5 star rating Stories and Legends of the Gothic Quarter Walking Tour - Great Tour! Fun and Interesting! This was our first trip to Barcelona were a family of four with two adults, in our 40s, and two teenagers 16 and 14. We took the English tour on 27 July 2017. Our guide, Núria, was friendly, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and full of information, stories, and legends of the Gothic Quarter! Our tour lasted a bit over two and a half hours, and provided us with lots of interesting information and helped us better appreciate Barcelona, its history, and its culture. We highly recommend this tour! It was lots of fun, and very interesting too!

    Our guide was easy to find - she was located right where we were told to look, holding her red umbrella.
