FAQ about regular tours

What is a regularly scheduled tour?

A regularly scheduled tour is a tour that we do with scheduled departures. You buy your ticket for a specific day and time and you will share the tour with other people. We care about the quality of our tours, so you will never find mass groups. If many people sign up, we divide the group into two. In the case of the Slow Gothic Tour, you will never find more than 12 people. In the rest of our regular tours, the maximum is 22 people.

What do you need to do a regularly scheduled tour?

Once the reservation is made, you only have to show up at the meeting point at the indicated time.

We recommend wearing comfortable shoes because the tour is on foot. If it’s summer, maybe a bottle of water or something to refresh you may also come in handy.

How can I customize the experience?

This tour can not be customized because it is a regular tour. If you want to do it exclusively you can contact us and customize it to your liking: choose the day, the time and the number of people or change part of the route and include another stop or monument. We will answer you and we can follow the process.

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.

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 borrosos.

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!

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.

La sombra del viento fabuloso recorrido.

Me encantó recorrer las calles y lugares 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 recorrido.
