Off The Beaten Barcelona Path

Things to Do, Travel Tips — By sammednick on May 3, 2010 at 2:22 pm

Even if you hate organized tours and normally wouldn’t spent a cent on having someone else guide you through an unknown city, it’s almost always worth it in Barcelona. It’s a city with so much to see that if you don’t know where you’re going you could spend an entire day wandering  aimlessly, taking in a lot but not actually seeing anything. Don’t get me wrong, it’s always fun to explore on your own, but it’s also nice to know some of the hidden gems that you might not stumble upon without some help.

Fast emerging as one of the best ‘things to do‘ in Barcelona, Hi This Is Barcelona is one of the most popular and most sought after tourism companies in the city. Run by an American who’s been living here for almost 10 years and who knows the city like the back of his hand, if you’re looking for information that you can’t get in a guide book this is one experience not to miss.

Since the tours are private and customized for each of their clients they range on the pricier side, but it’s actually worth every cent. It’s a small boutique company with only a few guides so things get booked up very quickly. If you want some help navigating the city but want information mixed in with a lot of personal attention, then these tours are ideal. They do everything from day trips outside of the city, to in-depth tours of the old city, Gaudi’s architectural buildings, tapas tours, night tours and basically anything you want, they will do.

These tours give you a true taste of Barcelona’s rich and often crazy culture.
