Alberto is AWESOME
We did a morning tour with Alberto on our last day in Barcelona, and he was phenomenal. He connected with each person in the group and gave us plenty of great stories about Barcelona every step of the way. I wish the tour would've lasted even longer! We had a great time.

FAQs

How much walking is there?

We cover about 1.5 miles at a leisurely pace. If mobility is an issue, please arrange for a private tour.

Is food included?

On your Barcelona markets walking tour you’ll have two different kinds of tastings. The first will be in La Boquería market, where you’ll sample sweet Catalan turrón. The second is in the Santa Caterina Market, where you’ll get to try Catalan ham and salami. You’ll also have some time to purchase food items at markets along the way if you wish. Your guide can provide recommendations for local flavors and how to get the best value.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We understand plans change. You can always change your tour 24 hours or more before you tour. We offer a 100% refund up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

When should I get there?

Plan to show up 15 minutes early. The tour starts promptly, and you may not be able to catch up if you arrive late.

What if it rains?

Our tours run rain or shine. If there’s extreme weather and we have to cancel, you’ll get a full refund.

Are gratuities included?

Tips are not included. If you think your guide did an outstanding job, a tip is a great way to show that.
