    We loved this tour! We learned so much about the area as well as Barcelona’s history. Mariano was charismatic and made everything incredibly intersting. We also really appreciated how Mariano tied everything to present day Barcelona. (As a former history major seeing how the past repeats itself is always fascinating). I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in history.

    I found Mariano to be knowledgeable, energetic, and funny. He started off with a brief pictorial to set the tone for the tour and gave insights and explanations all throughout.His English was very good, but occasionally, as a bilingual English-Spanish speaker, I helped him find the right words to explain fully what he meant. I definitely recommend this experience.

    Mariano is a nice and positive guy, with very amusing metaphors for describing the architecture of the old city. Go and check how does a building resembles Madonna, but also hear some interesting profs of history always being contemporary.
