UNIQUE BARCELONA TOURS
Alternative and Original Tours
“It is always wonderful when you live in any city and know the quirks the history and stuff that most people just gloss over, Gerardo knows Barcelona knows the quirks, the random facts that will surprise you, the hidden gems you would never have dared to look for yourself, and he passes that knowledge to you and makes you feel welcomed and discover a feel for the city that you could never have accomplished if you didn’t go off the beaten path.” Alejandro Espinoza (march 2019)
We are independent guides who had worked in other companies where, sadly, is not allow to talk about some issues related to the city of Barcelona, because of the controversies that create. This type of censorship is only detrimental to the visitors interested in getting to know the real and true Barcelona.
We want to create unique experiences for the visitors of Barcelona. We are tour guides, musicians, yoga teachers, sailing instructors, writers and artist who love what we do and the city we choose to live. We get together and collaborate to show the real and true Barcelona and a time you will never forget.
For this reason we have decided to create [Un]Censored Tours, so we can offer a qualified service where people can know the city in a full and without censor way. Always taking care of our enviroment and the people around us.
We look forward to create an ideal experience and that is why our groups are small. Allowing a real feedback between the visitors and the guide, who will be able to clarify all doubts and provide enriching comments.
This configuration is set to respect the residents of the different neighborhoods we are visiting, since the tours with large groups can be annoying.
“As mentioned by Gerardo Etturi – Tour Guide of “Uncensored Tours” in El Raval – the district is divided into two parts:
- A north-eastern part, Upper Raval, which is characterized by high-price shops, expensive bars, “hipsters”, and high rents. Consumption opportunities are targeted towards tourists. The cultural and public institutions are mostly located here. Tourism can be considered the driving factor of this neighbourhood.
- A south-western part, Lower Raval, which is less expensive. Here, the shops are targeted more towards the local population. The streets in general feel less influenced by tourism.”
