  • Why FollowTheBaldie?
    • Language All our guides are native English speakers and speak the local language fluently.
    • Knowledge Our local and subject knowledge is profound and up-to-date.
    • Interactivity See someone interesting? We'll interpret. Tired/full of energy? We can adapt the programme.
    • Individuality We don't do herd tourism. No silly flags. No headsets.
    • Responsibility Unlike most "green" tour businesses, we only use public transport--cheaper and generally more interesting.

Barcelona tours - search results

The bulk of our walking tours are in and around the ancient city of Barcelona. Most trips take up a morning or an afternoon, but if you go out of town you may be away for most of the day. We also offer trips of up to a week including accommodation.

Click the column headers to sort. The column "fiestas" shows you in which months you can combine walks with happenings. Haven't found what you want? Modify variables in the query string, browse all walks, search again, or drop us a line.
