We did this with two children under 5 and they had a blast. For adults, theres enough history discussed to keep you interested too.

Trying to get young children to absorb a sense of historical achievements can be really tough. I appreciate howe these tours was able to engage them to participate, particularly the youngest who was only 6.

Private tour with Tati, she was great, always had a smile on her face, very interactive with our two boys 6&9 years old. A mix of history, pictures, imagination, role play, education and learning about Catalonia which she some how balanced into such a way that our boys focus was maintained right to the end of the three hours.

We had a fantastic tour lead by the lovely, well-informed, bilingual, child-friendly Ann-Marie! Of all the great things we enjoyed on our family trip to Barcelona, this was our favourite. And that's praise indeed when it comes from a Messi-mad, 8 year old boy who has just visited Camp Nou! Definitely do this tour of you are "doing" Barcelona with... More

We did this walking tour on our first full day in town, and I'm happy we scheduled it that way. We got a feel for the neighborhood, learned a lot, and got to see some cool stuff. There was only one other family on the tour so it was just five so us on it, and our guide Tati was... More

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your tour with Tati. She is a great guide and, being from Barcelona, can offer great insight to the city. We do advertise the family tour as geared towards 4 to 12 years old but if teens come along, we certainly do our best to include them :-). Thanks a million for sharing,... More

We did this tour as a private tour, and it was one of the most fun and engaging tour for our kids during our trip to Europe. Ruth was very engaging, and we all learned quite a bit about the history and culture of the area.

I was with my 6 and 10 year old in Barcelona and this was a great tour for them and myself. Also it gave me my bearings for the downtown core.

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
