Excellent and fun discovery tour with lovely Lucie through unusual areas of Barcelona with our little daughter. We really appreciated the relaxing promenade, Lucie's huge historical and cultural knowledge of the city, passing through areas we would have not seen, finishing by the seaside as well with a beautiful and sunny weather! Thank you Lucie for this amazing experience, we totally recommend it!:)


Barcelone est une belle ville mais elle est aussi très dangereuse pour le touriste moyen. Il faut constamment faire attention à ses effets personnels. De façon générale les touristes sont attendus...
