Alex took our group of 19 college-age students and instructors on a fun, fact-filled tour of the market and tapas bars near the Ramblas. He gave us history, politics, and fun wrapped into one very enjoyable evening. Thanks Alex and Colin.

Colin is a great tour guide. Friendly, approachable and full of interesting information, both about the history of the city and general information - where to go, what to do, where to eat etc. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend one of his tours!

Took the Alternative at our and the Gaudi tour the next day with Colin. He is interesting and knowledgeable. Our teens were intertwined with both the graffiti and the architectual education, and we adults were thrilled with both tours!
