IT'S BETTER TO CONTACT ME BEFORE DOING THE BOOKING :)
Join me for an afternoon in the labyrinth that is Barcelona’s old town. For me, is the best time to discover the old city. We’ll immerse ourselves in the stories, the legends and the history of the city, discovering some of its hidden corners. We will even go up in a rooftop where we will see the city from 360* and retracing ancient city walls I’ll share some of Barcelona’s oldest legends with you, the kind that have been passed on throughout generations. During the visit we will make a little stop in any charming place to have a drink.

I’m an official tour guide and an art, history and culture lover. I have a Degree in Humanities and Media Communication and I’ve spent the last 4 years sharing the legends of my city with travellers. I enjoy meeting new people and showing them the beauties of Barcelona as much as I enjoy yoga. I’m hosting this experience with Núria, a friend from college and a passionate storyteller, who also loves the culture and legends of our city and enjoys meeting people from all over.

The walk with Clara (Gemmas substitute) was very interesting and fascinating. Clara showed me wonderful historic places and told me stories about them. It was a personal and friendly walk. A great experience!

Gemma was an amazing guide. Very knowledgeable and has a passion for the history of her city. To start off our walk she treated us to an horchata and off we went winding through the streets of the old town towards the Cathedral of Barcelona. She told us stories and legends along the way and answered all our questions. Gemma made us feel like we were on a walk with an old friend. Thank you, Gemma for this amazing tour and bar recommendations!

Gemma provides an amazing, world-class experience in Barcelona, a city that is so easy to love. She provided many details and stories about the wonderful history of the city and showed many small little details that would be easy to miss if you were just walking through the old town by yourself. Gemma is a fantastic, warm host that was lovely to converse with and made the experience one of a kind. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who has an interest in learning more about Barcelona's storied past.

Gemma was a wonderful tour guide. Her insight into the culture and history was simply the best. She took us to places I wouldn’t have ventured to on my own, which was a treat. She wanted us to see and experience a true sense of Barcelona. She was also very patient with me because my GPS was acting crazy and had me late to the tour. Don’t miss this! Gràcies, Gemma!

This was a perfect tour to see Barcelona’s Gothic and Roman history. Interesting places and stories that I wouldn’t have seen or known about without Gemma’s expertise. Would highly recommend.
