The district of El Born is where you’ll find the best atmosphere in Barcelona. You can ask your guide for some good places to eat or go out for a drink and add them to your list to see again.

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

A tour of the Gothic Quarter is one of the essential 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: Gothic Quarter tour, El Raval tour, Barceloneta’s tour, etc.
