Get to know us....
Best Barcelona Tour started with a simple mission, to take our knowledge and love for the city and share it with others. Founded by travelers for travelers, our aim was to create the ultimate guide to the city. In doing so we hope that we can help you fall in love with Barcelona, just as we once did. Below you can learn more about our organization.
We are a team of travel enthusiasts from around the World who fell in love with Barcelona and choose to call it home. Diversity is one of our core values and this is reflected in the make up of our team, which boasts members from more than 20 different nationalities.
We are based right in the heart of the Barcelona Old Town (The Gothic Quarter). This allows us to keep our ear to the ground and always be up to date with the latest developments in the city.
Feel free to pay us a a visit at our office-

Starting from humble beginnings in 2002, the organization has grown year on year, welcoming new team members and expanding our knowledge of the city. It now helps more than 40,000 travelers plan their trip every year.
Our Mission is simple, to help others get just as much out of the city as we have. We also aim to give back to the city by promoting ethical and sustainable tourism, which will ensure Barcelona remains a favorite travel destinations for future generations.
Once upon a time, a strange and peculiar time called the early 00s, when Mr Brightside was not a drunken sing along but had just been released, the world had no idea what Facebook was and the word “corona” was regarding only a beer, our journey began. In a land far far away (Bali) our founders met to begin their world wind adventure. Before you knew it, these explorers had set upon a new discovery and had started a travel company in Barcelona. As the years past, the world changed and more nomads came in to the family. All with one thing in common; they had fallen madly and truly in love with Barcelona.
Now we wish to extend this fairy tale. Over the years we have learnt everything there is to know about this beautiful city. Each person that came into the family added their own unique slant on what is so great about it. We gained artists, historians, entertainers, scientists, chefs, mixologists, writers and many many more. Each person taught us a new vibrant side to the city and released a creativity in us that had to be shared. Now we are sharing it with you.
We want you to love Barcelona just as much as we do, and experience the magic this city has to offer, whether you be here for a few hours or the rest of your life. Ask us anything at all and we will do all we can to find an answer. We have collected such a wide range of contacts over the years, that we should be able to help with anything at all, however run of the mill or totally bizarre and off the wall the request may be.
Many of our friends host and run the tours and activities themselves, so we know the people you will be meeting here first-hand. Let us know what kind of activity or adventure you are after, and we will point you in the right direction, to not just a great professional, but a friend and great person. This gives all of our recommended activities a personal touch, so you feel as if you are exploring with a lifelong friend of yours.
Now it is time to meet our main team. If there is anyone in particular you want to get in contact with or any particular request you have, get in touch and we will do our best to get back to you as soon as we can.
We hope you find magic in Barcelona, just like we did.
