The Old City Experience Tour

In this tour we will show you the secret, hidden, and surprising places of Barcelona, the unknown and well-kept secrets of this magical city!

This tour is a great and one-of-a-kind mix between intriguing folklore, secret architecture, and unique food tasting. We will try the best churros in Barcelona, and then through small side streets of the Gothic Quarter we will reach the plaza named after George Orwell. We’ll continue to the Roman seaside gate and a hidden patio with original Roman walls and Roman baths. We’ll visit a shop with a 167 year old roasting oven and taste their excellent wood-roasted nuts, before finishing the tour in the lush Ciutadella Park, the central park of Barcelona.

There are endless highlights on this tour, including the Roman walls that are hidden in a jewelry shop, an old “Herbostry” from 1823 – the precursor to the pharmacy – which appeared in the movie The Perfume, the original house of the Picasso family, a beautiful garden of an old hospital, small undiscovered alleys, and much more!

Given the limited opening hours of markets and stores and the number of sites and spots, we suggest starting this full tour at 12:30 pm or at 4:00 pm.

What is the difference between the Jewish tour and the weekly Jewish tour?

The main difference between the Jewish Tour and the Weekly Jewish Tour is the number of participants: the Weekly Jewish Tour is a group tour whereas the Jewish Tour is a private one.

Are all the guides Jewish?

We want to make sure you have the best experience, and hence we ensure that all of our guides are extremely knowledgeable of the tour content. However, in order to visit the Gaudi monuments, the City Hall of Barcelona requires us to hire specific, special certified tour guides. We cannot assure that these guides will be Jewish.

How do I pay?

If you book only 1 tour, you can pay at the end of the tour by Visa card or cash.
If you book 2 tours, you will pay 20% before the first tour and the rest you can pay at the end of the second tour by Visa card or cash.

Is there food during the tour?

We don’t stop for lunch doing our tours, but we can always stop for a snack.
There are a lot of coffee places and we are always trying to be very attentive to the clients’
needs. There is no problem to stop for a coffee or a snack if needed!

Do you buy entrances in advance?

We buy entrance to Gaudi´s monumets in advance. We buy entrance to the synagogue on-site.
