Unser Guide Johannes hat uns von Anfang bis Ende eine wirklich tolle Führung geboten. Sie war sowohl lehrreich als auch unterhaltsam. Viele historische Fakten und auch lustige Anekdoten wurden uns erzählt, sowie schöne Orte gezeigt. Abschließend wurde uns noch eine Liste mit tollen lokalen in der Gegend gegeben. Wir waren sehr zufrieden und würden diese Tour jedem empfehlen, der etwas über die Geschichte Barcelonas erfahren möchte.

Die Führung war absolut genial! Wir haben sehr viele interessanten Fakten über Barcelona erfahren, die mit viel Humor erzählt wurden. Die Führung hat 4 Stunden gedauert, aber ich habe die Zeit nicht gemerkt. Danach sieht man die Stadt mit anderen Augen und merkt so viele Details auf den Straßen, die man so nicht wahrgenommen hätte. Ich sage nur: Drachen und Fledermäuse :-) Ich finde, dass die Führung eigentlich mehr Geld wert ist, als sie tatsächlich kostet.
