Barcelona Walking Tours

See the best of Barcelona on foot

By

Barcelona is a big city and doesn't lend itself well to general walking tours of the whole city. Instead, tour guides cater their tours to particular interests. On this page you'll find a number of walking tours in Barcelona that cater for your specific tastes and needs.

If walking is too pedestrian for you, I've found a collection of other forms of transport you can take to see Barcelona. Read about them here: Alternative Barcelona City Tours
