Barcelona city tour

Why should you join a Barcelona city tour?

While there are several free tours which fight at Plaza Catalunya and the Cathedral for customers, Cooltourspain is the only project in town which offers an alternative approach to the Barcelona city tour. Explore the region's cultural roots with professional guides and discover a new way of enjoying history & art in Barcelona. What are the cities' highlights that you'd like to visit with your family and friends?

Historical buildings

Casa Batlló, Park Güell, Santa Eulalia cathedral, Picasso Museum... As you may see, there are several things to do in Barcelona. What are the monuments that you would like to photograph and visit in a guided way?

Boqueria Market
Local food markets

Apart from La Boquería, our guests may also have the chance to visit Mercado Santa Caterina. According to our opinion, this spot still maintains the local point of view, offering an alternative taste to our guests.

Alternative tour

Cooltourspain's Barcelona history tour was designed to bring you a different possibility to explore our city. It will include a local approach to our culture. Would you be able to identify the cities main characteristics?

Reviews of our Barcelona city walking tour

Iván was knowledgeable and informative, mixing local legends with factual Information. Our group had kids and adults. He took his time answering questions and tailored the Barcelona city tour to the groups' interests. One of the best guided visits I’ve ever taken because it was not only listening, but also meeting a very friendly professional. Would highly recommend it!

Javier is a true expert organizing trips around Spain. He also knows Barcelona and Madrid well and hired the best guides. Their suggestions for tapas and other things to do were spot on. We couldn't have asked for a better trip. My expectations for this experience were tempered by previous travel agencies, but Javier's tailored service was fantastic!

It was great experiencing Barcelona through the lens of Montse, a professional tour guide. Although we started by midday, and it was really hot in the city, she managed to make a bearable walk. It was interesting to hear the stories about the cities' ancient times. Also loved the stop for tapas that we did on the way. Thanks again Javier & Montse.
