Very satisfied with the experience.


Barcelona offers much more to its visitors than beautiful architecture, a history of its own and a good climate. This city is one of the top art venues worldwide, and if you want to really get to know its essence, you will have to immerse yourself in the artistic panorama unfurled by your guide on this tour of the music of Barcelona.

You do not have to tip the guide at all, since the price you will pay for the tour already takes into account their work.

Our musical tour of Barcelona is one of the most interesting ways to get to know the city, but Barcelona is not a city you can get to know in one day, so let us recommend you some more tours to take on your holiday: Passeig de Gràcia’s tour, La Rambla’s tour, Barcelona’s legends tour, etc.
