Private Old City Tour

Old City Tour

Tour Details

No visit to Barcelona is complete without a walk through the Gothic Quarter and Barcelona's Old Town. From Barcelona's foundations as a Roman Colony through its heights as a port city in the maritime empire that was the Crown of Aragón, up until today, everything comes together to narrate the history of the city. We will explore the charming streets, take in the awe-inspiring architecture and uncover the secrets that tell the story of Barcelona. With a private tour we can adjust the route to what you want to do, stopping where necessary!


Let me know any special interests or requests with what you want to see and I will tailor the tour for you and your group.

Patrick is a knowlegable, informative & fun guide with a personality as vibrant as Barcelona. I was fortunate to be asssigned to his morning walk of the old City & enjoyed his presentation so much that I immediately signed up for his afternoon Gaudi tour afterwards which I found even more enthralling. Patrick's knowledge & presentation style were 1st class & I have no hesitation in recommending both him & his walking tours. This was my 1st of 4 days that I have to explore Barcelona & I suspect it will be my favorite. Certainly a day well spent. Patrick made Barcelona's history come alive for me. Thanks Patrick.
Trip Advisor Review
Patrick connects Barcelona with its roots, giving you a full view of how the city’s past connects with its present...and then follows that up with recommendations to the best food in the city! If you’re in Barcelona, THIS is the guy you want showing you around. We’ll be doing his tours again until we’ve exhausted them

After being on many tours in numerous parts of the world, Patrick was by far one of the most enthusiastic, knowledgeable and passionate tour guides I’ve ever met. We were able to spend roughly three hours with him today touring the Gothic quarter of Barcelona and it was phenomenal. At the end of the tour he was able to provide us with recommendations and even a google document for future trips. 15/10 would recommend and will be booking with him for future trips in Barcelona
