Every one of us said the family tour was the highlight of our trip—and we have been to Europe many times but this was one of our absolute favorite experiences. We walked throughout some of old Barcelona, seeing many out-of-the-way sites that you'd never find on your own: so you get the best of both worlds, not only the great advice of a tour guide but the intimacy of it being just your family. Our kids loved Paulina. She had dining experiences already reserved for us so we got to learn how to make proper tomato bread, as well as go into the kitchen of a chocolatier. I also appreciated that we visited several sites that were hundreds of years old, allowing us to support traditional family run businesses.
This was the highlight of our trip. Laura was our guide and she was awesome. Super warm and sweet to our 9 year old son. He was enthralled with her and the tour. We all loved every bit of it from the culture, history and of course the food. Do yourself a favor and book this tour. It’s totally worth it, you will not regret it. We love walking tours and we’re pretty well traveled. I would say this is one of the best we’ve done. I would not hesitate to use them again.
Kids walking tour was just what we needed! The kids had a wonderful time (as did my wife and I). Laura was incredibly attentive with my son (9) and daughter (6) and told them stories and took them to fun places and got them involved everywhere. My daughter is very quiet, and didn't speak much on the tour. When we got home, I asked what her favorite part of Barcelona was. Without hesitation, she said, "the kid's tour!" I would definitely recommend this tour if you have children.
