A decent introduction to Gaudí and Barcelona by Raquel. She is very knowledgeable. Some fascinating stories along the way. Raquel gave me good advice about cable cars and things to do that really helped.

Joined Ali on the Gothic tour today. A very informative and enjoyable few hours. We had walked some of the area already but Ali brought it to life. I would definitely take another tour next time we find ourselves in Barcelona.

I've been on the old city/Gothic quarter tour several times an it never disappoints. If you're lucky enough to get Ali as a guide you will learn a lot. It's a great way to get to know the city.

The tour was great. It was very interesting and also fun. I would recommend this to everybody visiting Barcelona. It is free, and based on tips, which is really fair.
