The forbidden tour was honestly amazing. It was my second tour with lien as I did the free walking tour earlier in the day with him. He was funny and had so much information in his crazy head. Made some of the best jokes and tied in the bloody history of Barcelona in with them.

Man, I can’t imagine a better tour guide than Miguel. Super knowledgeable, approachable, and fun. I get the sense that he makes slight tweaks to the tour based on the people, which is such a nice touch - and a mark of quality. This was one of the first things we did in Barcelona
