Josep came to meet us at our apartment on Passeig de Gracia which was fabulous. We were fitted with small blue tooth headsets which meant that Josep could communicate with us at all times while walking. The tour definitely met our expectations with the highlights being the Boqueria, and the Picasso museum.
