Wonderful way to start our adventures in Barcelona. 5 stops for Tapas, Vermouth, Sangria, wine and Jamon. Juan was funny and the walk was slow enough everyone was able to take lots of pictures and was not too strenuous. Everything was included EXCEPT water so either bring water or but some along the way if you want it. Would highly recommend.

Wonderful experience! Our guide was a wealth of knowledge and charm as she guided us and introduced us to hidden sights that we had walked by numerous times and didn't even notice! Gave us a better appreciation for the buildings and history!

We LOVED the bike tour, and we learnt so much about the city!! We were all so glad we did it and would probably do it again! Our guide spoke perfect English and was warm and engaging the entire way round. Great way to see the city!!

The experience was amazing! The tour guide was so fun and energetic! We played drinking games at the first bar to get to know everyone. Such a good way to start off the holiday, meet new people and to see the local area!

Many thanks to Jordan I enjoyed my so much last might with your guidance for the Pub Crawl.
