WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
Amazing Barcelona Walking Tours
“Thank Runner Bean tours for the great experience and memories they gave: these guys are just amazing, very knowledgeable, well organized and super passionate about their work.”
The guides are Fun and Knowledgeable
“We went on three tours provided by Runner Bean Tours; the Gothic Quarter Tour (with Gorka), the Dark Past Night Tour (with Lowri) and the Gaudi Tour (with Miguel) and all three were absolutely brilliant. Our guides were all very knowledgeable and showed us all the sights and answered every question we had.”
Fantastic. Highly Recommended for Families
“We did 2 private tours and both were just fantastic, a Modernisme tour with Ann Marie and a streets tour with Tati and our 4 children loved both. It really made Barcelona come alive for them and we learnt so much about the history and the art that we would have otherwise have missed.”
Interesting and Fun Tour
“Miguel was just right. He was informative, light-hearted and joked along with us with his excellent English. He made the tour entertaining and he was flexible in what we wanted to do. Highly recommended.”
A must do in Barcelona!
“The 11:00 free walking tour Barcelona of the Gothic Quarter was amazingly informative and no amount of research of mine could have compared to the constant flow of interesting narration by Gorka. It is a must do!”
What a fabulous experience!!!
“We did the tour with Marc today. He was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and friendly. We were enchanted by tales of Gaudi. It is the best tour you’ll have in Barcelona.”
