Three generations of my family went on this tour with Lisa and we all had a great time. My son (10) was kept engaged by stories, sweets, activities and song, learning some history at the same time. A great way to spend a morning in Barcelona with kids!

We went on 2 tours whilst in Barcelona. The first was the Old City tour where our guide was Ruth. She was very funny and knowledgeable and kept the group of 16 engaged throughout. There was something for everybody and we covered a fair distance. The second tour we did was the Gaudi one with Marc. This was a larger... More

After this tour with Runner Bean, I've compared every other kids tour I've taken to it to determine quality. This tour knows how to engage children and adults. The guide brought activities for the kids to do throughout and explained everything very well. We had a great experience exploring the Gothic Quarter with Runner Bean during our stay in Barcelona....

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.

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.
