Best tour in Barcelona!

With this amazing tour, we had a great morning. Our guide Laura was informative and kept us interested and involved throughout the tour. We had 12 people - which is challenging to manage in narrow streets and alleyways - but she managed us with finesse. Really enjoyed exploring the Old Town and learning more about its history.
