It was the best decision to ask Christina for a private guide tour! In 5 ours we saw the main places of Barcelona and we also had wonderful experience in Picasso museum. This guid is very well informed about art!!! For me that was the greatest part of our tour. Also Christina told us interesting stories about artist, places and history. She advised where to eat (nice local places). That was very useful. I am glad that we have chosen this guide
Best tours in Barcelona!

Cristina was amazing! I actually went on three tours with her. The crime tour, a Barcelona sweets tour, and a tour of Sitges. She was awesome and knew so much information about everything she showed us. She also gave us such an authentic experience that you wont find at larger organizations. She made sure we always felt welcome and I loved every tour I went on with her!

Excellent route to discover the darkest side of your own city. Cristina is a great professional, very knowledge on the subject and someone who knows how to transmit very well. Don't miss this experience (at night and with rain...even better :)
Not to be missed

Great route and best guide, Cristina was fantastic. If you like mystery and Barcelona you cannot miss it… If you think you know Barcelona, ​​this route will surprise you.
Many different sites and stories!

Crimes tour is a great way to see different neighborhoods in Barcelona! Cristina knows Barcelona well and took us to so many different places that you'd miss on a typical tour. The stories varied widely, from historical to supernatural. With COVID, the crimes tour was a safer way to experience the city outside. The headphones and app helped a lot too! We've been on Cristina's Barcelona sweets tour and Sitges tour as well. Cristina is always fun, personable, and knowledgable. I would definitely recommend!
