Free Walking Tours Barcelona

Free Walking Tours Barcelona was founded by Ian (EEUU) and Sara (Spain) who after several years working as a freelance tour guides in Europe, decided to start their own tours with a renewed philosophy: to offer quality tours, discovering to their clients the historical richness of the city, but without neglecting the present.

In regards to the Free Walking Tours, the idea is simple; join the tours without paying a cent, let the guide show you the best of the city with their unique entertaining style, and you decide at the end what the tour was worth to you.

The meeting point is at Plaza Catalunya, at the corner just in front of the Apple store.

You will find our guide waiting for you,  holding the purple umbrella. It is recommended to be 15 minutes before the walk begins.

We work on the sunny and the rainy days. As long as if it is safe, our tours run every day and our expert tour guides try to make the most of holidays.

It’s always a good tip to check the weather conditions in advance and wear a confortable and proper outfit.

Yes, there is a break in the middle of the tour at the La Dorotea bar. There you can go to the bathroom and have a drink.

The tours are offered on a “pay what you think it’s worth”  model. It means that voluntary tips are welcome at the end of the tour, as a way to thank and support the tour – so, that’s why our guides will be motivated to do their best, to make you enjoy the tour, and explore the city in an informative, original and fun way.

No, you do not need to book a tour in advance, the only thing you need to do, is to show up at the meeting point on time.

Note: these tours are dedicated to individuals or travelers with a small group of friends.  If you are traveling with the group of more than 9 people, contact us in advance for a private tour.
