"Our guide was really cool. Very knowledgeable of the street, its history, etc. We took our time up La Ramblas and it was very enjoyable. Guide was Barcelona native that speaks really good English, so no issues with that. Would do again and highly recommend :)" GetYourGuide-customer from USA, March 29th, 2014


The tour:

Explore Barcelona’s Las Ramblas! Once used by Barcelonas high society for Sunday walks, the Rambla is now the most visited spot in Barcelona with 8 million visitors per year.

 

The Rambla is an assembly of five little Ramblas, and for that reason they are called and known as "Las Ramblas." Every part displays their typical features: you will find human statues, exotic florists and mounds of fresh produce at La Boqueria Market - the oldest market of the city.

 

Try it for yourself!

The booking process

I did a test booking of the Ramblas tour via Get your guide. It was an easy process. You click on your preferred day and hour, fill out some information about yourself, and then check out.

 

You will get the confirmation and voucher very quick. You even get a reminder one day before the tour!

 

The meeting point was the entrance/exit of the metro station "Drassanes." Because of some construction work inside the metro, I got lost for a second, but the guide had a folder with the tour-name so she was easy to recognize!

 

The Tour

Although I am living in Barcelona, Inma showed and told me a lot of new information about the Rambla and the neighborhoods of Raval and Gotico! It was a really entertaining morning on the Ramblas. We started at the metro station Drassanes. After some introductory information about Barcelona, we talked about the Columbus-statue and the different Museums in this corner (like Museum Maritim and the wax museum). By walking up the Rambla slowly, Inma explained how the town was built – including some historic background on the Raval and Barrio Gotico. We stopped at Palau Güell and Placa Reial - both very impressive places! After that, we visited the "Boqueria" - the oldest Market in Barcelona, and we ended the tour at Plaza Catalunya.

 

Conclusion

The 1.5 hours with Inma were very entertaining. If you want to get to know the Ramblas better and some information about the districts of Raval and Gotico, I highly recommend this tour.

My Review of the tour

the field of Camp Nou Stadium, Barcelona

Preparation  

Football, a big stadium and the history of the FC Barcelona! This is what you get! So if you are interested in Football - this is the right tour for you!

If you are not that interested in football, it still can be a nice tour, but then I would say too expensive. 23 Euro is a lot of money for a museum and behind the scenes tour.

With buying the ticket in advance - you can skip the lines. In summer this is totally worth it! And you'll get your Audioguide-system inside.

 

The Audioguide-Tour

Starting point is the FC Barcelona museum, where you'll see the clubs history from the beginning on. Old football boots, tricots and all sorts of golden and silver cups are exhibited.

After the museum you will go your way behind the scenes: you will see the dressing room of the opposing teams, the press room and then you'll go down to the grass of the stadium! This is really a great experience! Imagine all the people sitting and screaming here while the players are entering the stadium right through this gate! Amazing!

 

After this you will get to a media-room - which is kind of nice - and see the video-documentation of the Club.

Conclusion

I can imagine that this visit is awesome for football-fans. And for others it can be kind of interesting to see the inside of an stadium :)

Next, go to Vall d’Hebron to see an example on how the Olympic Games were integrated in the city. 

Go to the Placa Eivissa of Vila d’Horta to see how a central neighborhood has maintained the character of an indpendent town. Take a look at the historic cafés and the local market.
