We are independent guides who have worked in other tourist companies, which unfortunately do not allow us to talk about certain topics that concern the city of Barcelona, due to the controversy that they generate. This form of censorship is only detrimental to participants interested in knowing the real Barcelona.
For this reason we have decided to create [Un]Censored Tours, to provide a quality service where people can get to know the city fully and without censorship.
Our bicycles are 100% recycled, painted, and fixed by our best mechanic, actor, and director Mariano from Argentina.
We don’t use business cards but give a souvenir instead: a Polaroid photo to remember the moment or a sticker with something related to the city, for example,
Also having a vegan cooking class with live music online experience, to preserve animal species and nature.
SOCIAL & SOLIDARITY ECONOMY
We do not charge commissions for the places we recommend: museums, art galleries, bars, etc., We will always recommend what we consider to be the best places in the city.
We work with super small groups (between 4-10 people), that helps to share the benefit with other professionals, and also improve neighbors’ quality of life.
We get involved and give back what the work area gives us.
One day per week at community garden Agora Juan Andrés Benítez, training ICT skills with Paulo Freire Pedagogy of the oppressed, to improve knowledge and
empower El Raval neighbors and us too, learning about customs of the different communities and social tribes of El Raval. That helps to accept and embrace diversity.
Collaborate with Top Manta (Asociación de Manteros de BCN) and work with Mansour Djité on a book about his 11 days in the Atlantic Ocean.
