Explore in depth the Gothic Quarter and Born District with a private tour guide
Embark yourself on a walking tour in the heart of medieval Gothic Quarter and let me show you all the highlights of this quarter. Of course, I won't forget to share some local stories!
We will start our tour at Placa Catalunya (or I will pick you up from your hotel if you prefer) where you'll see the Gothic Cathedral, a famous landmark. Our tour will continue with Placa del Rei and two beautiful gothic constructions.
Next stop is the political Square of Barcelona just before we pass through the Jewish Quarter where you'll hear the story how the Jewish people banished from Spain by Queen Isabella at the end of the 15th century.
From there, we will make our way on La Rambla to the local market La Boqueria. Here, you'll get a glimpse at the gastronomic traditions of Catalan people and you can grab a yummy snack if you want.
Stroll through Placa del Rei and check the outstanding architecture of Santa Maria del Mar (14-century gothic church).
Our last stop it will be at the Cultural Centre el Born.

I am a local tour guide, but cannot give explanations inside Sagrada Familia; I do explain it from the outside, where most of the information is. I can recommend where to buy tickets with NO WAITING LINES, or I can customise a tour with tickets included.
A Recent Review of this tour

Florenta was an absolute delight. Neither myself or my wife had ever been to Barcelona before, however, after spending four hours with Florenta we felt we had learnt a sufficient amount of local facts and history to make the rest of our stay a far better and informed experience. For those reading this review and have never booked a personal guide, do so today, Florenta will not be disappoint. In addition I can only concur with other travellers that have booked a tour with Florenta, she was great company!
