we had a very entertaining and above all informative day with Ton-David. The tour was full of personal anecdotes and Catalan pride. It was a lot of fun and brought us closer to the city and the people for our stay. Thank you very much

great

Everything went great. We were fully satisfied with Ton-David as our travel guide and learned a lot of interesting things with interesting little stories and backgrounds that are not found in any travel guide book. Ton-David has been very responsive to our small group with the many questions and has adapted completely to us. We also liked the fact that he took the time to accompany us after the tour (so in his spare time) to let the afternoon and farewell end nicely. In addition to In any case, we had a lot of fun with the information and felt safe and very comfortable in the company of Ton-David. Many thanks again and greetings to Barcelona!

good

Would definitely recommend Tour to others. Very individual design possible

great

Mr. Ton-David was exclusively at the disposal of our travel group of 8 persons for two days. On the first day he showed us the Gaudi buildings worth seeing in the context of a Gaudi tour. Thanks to Mr. Ton-David we didn't have to queue at the end of the lines and didn't lose any time Also on the second day Mr. Ton-David picked us up punctually in the hotel and he led us in the old town by small lanes and worth seeing places.

We can only recommend Mr. Ton-David with his profound knowledge and his willingness to respond to our wishes to every Barcelona visitor as a tour guide.

Description

This amazing walking tour will let you discover 2.000 years of Catalan history in an area called Ciutat Vella or simply The Old City.

The stroll will mainly be focusing on Barcino - the Roman City- the Jewish Quarter and the Barri Gòtic or Gothic Quarter. The tour also includes the Gothic Cathedral, the Palau de la Música Catalana, the Rambla Boulevard, the Boqueria Market (not on Sundays) and a visit to Gaudí's Palau Güell.

The well kept Roman City of Barcino can be easily recalled and recognized with its abundant, typical Roman walls and towers, the Corinthian Temple of Augustus, the Via Augusta Road and a segment of an aqueduct.

The Call or Medieval Jewish Quarter is divided in two areas: Call Major & Call Menor. Thes narrow lanes take you back to medieval times of Barcelona, when the Jewish community reached almost 20% of its population. You will also get the opportunity to visit a small Jewish heritage museum and what claims to be the oldest Synagogue in Europe.

The romantic Gothic Quarter is a well preserved medieval set of Gothic buildings, significantly the Major Royal Palace of the Crown of Aragon and 13th c. Cathedral: an impressive work of art with a large, refined collection of Gothic altar tables.

The Rambla, the liveliest boulevard in town, offers flowers and bird stalls since a couple of centuries. Next, you will get to the Boqueria Food Market, which is very unique, and further down the opera house, El Liceu, from 1847.

Not far, in the imposing gaudinian Palau Güell -reopened recently after a decade of delicate restoration- you'll enjoy the visit to Gaudí's sponsor residential palace from 1888: a world of luxury crowned by a colorful set of chimneys on the rooftop.

The tour will also include the incredible Palau de la Música Catalana, where you will see the Bar lounge and the Quatre Gats café: the charming spot where Picasso held his first individual exhibits at the age of 18.

Itinerary:
• Palau de la Música Catalana (Bar & hall area)
• Els Quatre Gats café (Bar & dining hall area)
• Roman city of Barcino (Visit to temple of Augustus)
