Barcelona in the XIX century was called the Manchester of Spain because of many factories and industries. Along with the factories came the barracks and shacks by the beach area that were built by the workers migrating from all over the country.

In 1992 Barcelona hosted the Olympic Games and the city went through a major transformation, specially the industrial neighbourhood called Poblenou.

In our walk we,ll see some of those fantastic buildings, former factories, towers, chimneys, etc that were once part of the industrial Barcelona. And also the amazing remodeling that was necessary for the city to become Olympic.

We,ll also walk by the marina and the beach of the Olympic Port and we,ll finish in front of a gorgeous Modernist water tower that belonged to the old main gas factory in town.

Ready to explore that great part of the city? Come Walk with me!

      Hi, Ana! Thank you for your review, so very nice of you. And thank you for all your questions during the walk. It was a pleasure to take you and your husband to that part of Barcelona. You know that both of you can walk with me anytime. All the best!

I work as a Tour Manager since 1992, the year we had the Olympic Games in the city I love and live now, Barcelona.

I have worked as a translator-interpreter, even had my years as an actor and published my first novel two years ago. I've lived in many countries including Germany, Brazil, Portugal and the US and I speak Spanish, English and Portuguese.

My passions are history, literature, architecture, languages, film and sports, and I feel very fortunate to work as a Tour Manager and share a combination of them with my clients in the cities we visit together.

How does it work?

Live Tours are carried out by our hosts, who are outdoors, on location and connected live to you via video call at all times.

Live on Location

Live Tours aren’t virtual, they are live! Meaning we don’t use Google Streetview, nor will we show you a Powerpoint presentation.

Our hosts will walk around with you whilst being connected live via video call at all times. If we offer a Live Tour in Lima, it really means your host will actually walk through the streets of Lima with you!

Personal, Private and Exclusive

Even more personal than a regular phone call, your host will be connected to you via video call - and they will be connected only to you!

Live Tours aren't conference rooms full of strangers. Your host will be there exclusively for you, so you can ask them questions at any time, ask them to look at some details or even to quickly turn into a street off route - just for you!

Not only will you be able to travel the world, you will also get to know a local professional who is going to be thrilled to show you around and share their knowledge and experience with you :)

Invite your Friends along for free

Your host will only be connected to you, but you can invite up to 5 friends to enjoy the experience together - as long as you are all in front of one device, your device: your phone, tablet, laptop, or computer.

If your friends can't be with you, add a Group Ticket to your booking for an additional 5 devices!

Free cancellation up to 48 hrs

If you cannot reschedule, you can cancel your booking up to 48 hrs for a full refund.

Stabilised Camera

Some of our hosts use a gimbal to stabilise their phones for a super smooth experience! Look out for this feature in the listings.

What about timezones?

If you're in a different time-zone to your host, the website will show the selected time-slot in your local time in blue.

But not to worry, your host will double check the booked time with you and you can adjust timings if necessary!

How do I pay for my booking?

We accept all major Credit Cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay and PayPal. WalkWithMe Tours will act on behalf of the host, so once you've made the payment, you don't have a payment obligation to the host anymore.
