Choose our tour of the legends of Barcelona and get to know the city from another perspective. This tour is not for learning about the official history and most emblematic buildings of the city. What you will learn about is how the people of the time lived and the events that have marked Barcelona forever.

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

Our tour of the legends 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, Sagrada Familia’s tour, etc.
