    Very grateful and absolutely delighted for this in-depth Old Town Gothic Quoter walking tour we had with our lovely and knowledgeable guide Nuria! Nuria led this tour with great love and passion towards her city and Catalan culture. It was so lively how she described the history scenes that we could easily imagine the old times when Barcelona was built. Lots of interesting facts and places were covered in just 3 hours. Thank you dear Nuria, you made magic! We still live with the emotions from Barcelona and from the information learned on this tour even being back in the UK for more than a week already. We could not have found these places and learned so much in detail about Barcelona without you. ❤️ We highly recommend this walking tour. Indra and Steve from Buckinghamshire UK.
