Alex took our group of 19 college-age students and instructors on a fun, fact-filled tour of the market and tapas bars near the Ramblas. He gave us history, politics, and fun wrapped into one very enjoyable evening. Thanks Alex and Colin.

Colin is a great tour guide. Friendly, approachable and full of interesting information, both about the history of the city and general information - where to go, what to do, where to eat etc. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend one of his tours!
