FAQs

Can I take your other Barcelona tours before this tour?

Yes, the Barcelona Ancient Markets Walking Tour begins at 10 a.m. and the Raval Walking Tour begins at 1 p.m., so there’s plenty of time for all three or for you to pick and choose among them. Your guide can help direct you to the meeting point for the next tour if you’re continuing your discovery of Barcelona with us later that day.

How much walking is there?

This tour covers about 2 miles at a leisurely pace. If mobility is an issue, please arrange for a private tour.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We understand plans change. We offer a 100% refund or the option to reschedule 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 aren’t included but are always appreciated by our guides. If you think your guide did an outstanding job, a tip is a great way to show that.
