A much more intense walking tour than I expected. I'm in my 60s and in relatively good health. Our guide was VERY knowledgeable about all sites & we loved that. However, with a warm day the first part of the tour was nice, but we had no idea of the hike & steps in Park Gruell. Also, being from another country & not knowing the area, I was very surprised that the guide just left us at La Sagrada basilica with no knowledge of where we were & how to get back to our hotel. Our tour bus left all of us there. We were told there was the metro (but really too confusing to use) or taxis, but with massive crowds trying to find taxis at a tourist spot, it took us 45 min to find a spot & hail a taxi back to our hotel. I don't think leaving tourists in a foreign country & in an area they are unfamiliar with is a safe way to end a tour. I assumed our bus or even the guide would come with us & bring us back to our original meeting spot where the tour began. I would only recommend this tour if you are a good traveller & familiar with public transportation in Barcelona. Also, this tour is too strenuous if you are not able to walk up & down steep steps.
