A great way of seeing street art around the city, in parts we wouldn't have visited otherwise.
The tour guide, Cynthia, knew a lot about the local area, and got us entry into a community garden area which is closed to the general public.
We had understood the tour would be 3 hours, but on the day it ended up being 2 hours. However, this was enough time to see a lot of different examples of street art in the city.

Did the 3 hour walking tour "A New Look at the Old Town" with Mar, July 2020. Mar was fantastic, highly knowledgable, I thoroughly enjoyed the whole 3 hours. Taking a tour like this adds so much depth to the visual experience of Barri Gotic. Even with many of the shops not re-opened yet, I would highly recommend for the history and perspective offered on this tour. Being the only person on the tour, Mar also included aspects that were of particular interest to me.

Tussa turlaug decided to visit Priorat this year, and we got a great offer from MFT. One whole day in the Priorat area, with an excellent wineguide Stefan, giving us a thorough introduction on Priorat wines. Tasting excellent wines, travelling through fantastic scenery and visiting wineries made this day one to remember. Lunch at the Aspic cellar in Falset is highly recommended.

We could spend more time in this beautiful area, tasting fabulous Priorat wines.

I took a group of work colleagues to Barcelona and wanted to find a tour company who could put together a bespoke tour of Barcelona's street art. Katrien at My Favourite Things was brilliant and put together a great tour for us with a really knowledgeable guide, Orne. Being a street artist herself, Orne was able to add lots of interesting anecdotes and really brought the street art to life. Both Katrien and Orne were helpful in suggesting local restaurants too - it seems like they really care about providing a good service and we felt well looked after. Big thanks to them both.

We did two tours with Mar in Barcelona. A food tour and an all around tour. Both were great! she is a native of the city and a wealth of knowledge. She showed us little alley's with amazing restaurants and taught us some great history. I'd be happy to recommend this tour group for anybody who wants to get a flavor for the city before jumping off and exploring on your own.

My girlfriend's and I visited Barcelona for a few days to celebrate my birthday and I surprised them on the first day by booking a 2hr salsa lesson. Well worth the money! Very professional and fun. We laughed so much and carried on using our new moves for the rest of the trip!

Colorful, busy market; had a drink, ate the fresh fresh seafood, watched the people, wandered around.

We've contacted my favourite things for our teambuilding trip to Barcelona. It was a fantastic trip! Our weekend started with a wonderful visit to the bodega Albet I Noya. The tour and the wines were exquisit. And the day after we visited Barcelona by bike with Heleen. Katrien also shared some of her favorite restaurants and bars with us.

We took two tours with MFT and were so glad we did. Both guides (Mar and Helene) were knowledgeable, noted points of interest that we would have missed otherwise and gave us both a great introduction to and deeper understanding of Barcelona and its history. They both spoke excellent English. We also thought the tour was a very good value, especially in comparison with other tours that we took during our three week visit to Spain. Highly recommend the tours - both four hours in length - and we would book other tours with MFT if we return to Barcelona.

We normally do not take tours but were advised it would be a good idea to do so in Barcelona. I had a little difficulty in arranging the tours initially because Katrien was on holiday. She did follow up on her return and then the main problem for me was deciding which tour to take as there is a good selection. I took Katrien's advice and in the end we took two tours.

We had a custom tour of Gracia with a focus on local art and artisans. Mar was a very engaging and knowledgeable guide with brilliant English. She had a personal connection with the area and took us "off the beaten track" to places we wouldn't have gone ourselves. She gave us a local's insight into the people of Gracia, Barcelona and Catalonia. The four-hour format meant we had time to have a coffee at a typical bakery. We walked a long way and then Mar left us outside a great restaurant for a late lunch at the end of the tour.

We had to delay our Fabulous Fusion Tour because of an unlucky injury that I sustained. We were lucky that Katrien was kind enough to reschedule the tour for us 2 weeks later when we were back in Barcelona for a day. Because we were taking the tour privately, Carola was able to customise it for us. She also had brilliant English along with a great insight into local culture. We visited unexpected places in the Raval area, and then Bario Gotica, St Peres and Le Born, again with a focus on art and artisanal goods where practical. We took this tour in the afternoon and had a break at one of Carola's favourite terrace bars. She walked us most of the way home after the tour ended.

We found both of our guides to be accommodating, knowledgeable and charming. Mar and Carola were able to adjust the pace and tour content according to our interests. They answered all of our questions in great detail showing their passion for Barcelona.
