Just great!! 2nd time in Barcelona, wanted to go again to some places we liked but discover new ones too and luckily we found this guide!! We only made Around Güell, the one in Horta and the other in Sarrià but they were amazing!! we're already looking for flights to do the rest !!!

Matt Matt

Thanks for sharing all these great Bodegas!! Thanks to the guide I could avoid going to all these nordic style hip bars that I already have at home and eat and drink in authentic Spanish bars. Good Job!!!

Andrew Andrew

Top!! You can't imagine the quantity of great things Barcelona has to offer beyond the main sights. I've loved the way the routes are planned, with plenty of options to eat or drink (super locals) along the way. Maybe the only problem would be that daily routes are a bit too long... But you can just stop anytime in fact...

Cameron Cameron

All these neighborhoods where lovely and we could eat in bars and restaurants that were great deals compared to the ones in center town. Couldn't have found all these places and done these gorgeous walks without this great guide

Alisson Alisson

Great daily focused guide!! The perfect combination of visits, bars and restaurants to discover unknown areas of Barcelona.

Marko Marko

Just what I needed! I had already been to Barcelona a couple of times and had always stayed around center town. This time I wanted to go further and I couldn't have asked for anything better than this guide.


Charles made a very unique and interesting plan for our famiky. My husband had lived in Barcelona before so we wanted off the beaten path ideas and Charles gave us great ideas.


Guide parfait, que nous n'avons pas pu tester malheureusement, pour cause de manifestations le 8 mars.

Coumba Williams

Charles was brilliant and extremely helpful above and beyond a great itinerary. Definitely recommend!


Pas assez de précision au niveau des adresses mais pour 5€......Charles a l'air très sympa vu la correspondance par mail.
