Get away from the bustling city & spend some relaxing time on the Olympic Mountain of Montjuïc - Barcelona´s green lung.

We will start at the exhibition ground of the World Fair of 1929. Ascending the hill, you will learn about this important event. While standing in front of a palace that houses the Catalan modern art museum you will have a photo moment with amazing views.

From there we will cross the Olympic Ring where the Games of 1992 were held. Passing by the Botanical Garden we'll have a glimpse into the famous cemetery of Barcelona. Once on the top we may have a break in a hidden beer garden under pine trees - if open & the weather allows.

The walk continues around the castle of Montjuïc to a breath-taking view point. Learn why the mountain has always been a natural watch tower guarding the city.

We will stroll down the slopes of the hill to the multi-cultural quarter of Poble Sec where we finish the walk in Calle Blai famous for its local tapas & pinchos bars.

A lesser-seen and beautiful side of Barcelona with lots of information

Christian gave us such a wonderful tour of the lesser-seen side of Montjuic. You could not believe we were in the city it was so beautiful. And along the hike we talked history and economics and politics and all new information about Barcelona. So we made a new friend and had a beautiful view of city. Terrific.
A While New World in Barcelona

As I walked through through the Green Lung of Barcelona I felt like Jasmine on the Magic Carpet with Aladdin experiencing a whole new world!

I was a solo traveler in Barcelona and booked the tour last minute; I was impressed with the accommodations Michael and Christian put fourth so I was able to do the tour. The tour was with Michael and I felt safe, connected and inquisitive about the grounds we walked! Michael spoke with such passion and knowledge as we walked it felt like time travel as if you could see the history play out! All the hidden gems along the way and the sights were SPECTACULAR!!!!!!

My only regret is not finding Michael and Christian’s “BarcelonAfeeling” tours sooner; I would have loved to Experience the chocolate and cava tour!!! Next time!!!

PLEASE do yourself good and take this tour! It’s is a value and experience you can’t miss! It’s definitely worth it!!!!

Great team with great passion for what they do. For me, that is what made this experience memorable. I didn’t feel like a tourist, it was more like a privilege to be able to experience the the air pass through the Green Lung! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!

Michael showed me around the fascinating world of Montjuïc with its spectacular views, nature and history. It was a very pleasant surprise for me that not only it was a private tour, but in Dutch too! Michael is very knowledgeable and I've learned a lot. The fabulous weather was a bonus, thank you very much!!
Fun tour!

We just did a tour with Michael, who was great! He was super enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable about local culture and history. We learned a ton and really enjoyed talking with him.

Climbing up the mountain was definitely an experience we wouldn't have had on our own! The description is accurate in that it's a little challenging as it's a lot of uphill walking and stairs, but if you are reasonably fit and wear comfortable shoes it's totally doable. Note: wear plenty of sunblock as the majority of the tour is in direct sunlight with no shade, which we did not expect - so just be aware.

The cemetery was also a highlight and is super fascinating.

If you want to get away from the crowds of tourists in the city center and enjoy an off the beaten path experience in nature (while burning off churros and tapas calories), do this tour!
