We did both the Barri Gotic and Gaudi tours led by Jarrod. He was an excellent guide, knowledgeable, keen, amusing and helpful. No hesitation in recommending these tours which provide an excellent introduction to the city, just the right length at 2 1/2 hours.

From the start Jarrod was friendly and witty. He made the tour fun and interesting. The way he imparted his knowledge was more like a group discussion rather than a lesson. We learnt a lot.More

We did Gothic Quarter and Gaudi free tours with Jarrod. He is an awesome guide, very well articulate and has a passion for what he does. 第一次尝试这种形式的导游,非常棒的体验。个人觉得他们家的导游水平不比收费的差。
