- Where does the tour end?
The tour will end in the Born district of the old town, close to the Barceloneta Metro stop. If you feel like sampling more of the area, we will give you suggestions of our favourite cocktail and wine bars.
- Why does the tour start in the afternoon?
The tour starts in the afternoon for a couple of reasons. The first is that most local restaurants do not open all day, so we had to plan our route and timing to ensure we pass to our stops at the ideal time – when they are open and not completely rammed. We will experience some establishments during off-peak times and others when the crowd is starting their night so it will be a nice mix of quiet and busy.The second reason is we wanted the tour to end when you can start your night out, so we will recommend a few cocktail and wine bars so you can continue your night.
- When is the cut-off to book?
The tool will allow you to book until midnight the day before the tour. If you are interested in joining a tour with less notice, please call or email us and we will do our best to accommodate you.
- Can I pay in cash on the tour?
Unfortunately the payment needs to be done online through the website.
- What should I bring with me?
Wear comfortable shoes, sunglasses and a camera. If rain is forecasted, please bring an umbrella or poncho.
- What is your cancellation policy?

- Do you run regardless of the weather?
Tours run rain or shine. In extreme weather conditions we will reach out to you to reschedule.
- When is the best time to visit Barcelona?
Barcelona is great to visit year round. The temperature is moderate in Spring and Autumn and quite warm in the summer. In August most Spaniards take their holidays and many locals leave Barcelona. Some local shops and restaurants close for a few weeks in August. There are tons of events happening year round and we recommend a quick look to see what parades/shows are on during your stay here.
