From it´s humble beginnings 2000 years ago as an innocuous fishing port to it´s modern international standing explore the city´s growth from Roman consolidation, Christian and Jewish persecution, imperial expansion, industrial explosion, political identity, artistic flourishing.Meet the ghosts of martyred Christians, iconic painters, war combatants, religious legends, glory hunting kings, medieval hangmen and many more, all of whom have left a cultural and physical mark on the windy, close- quartered streets of this, the oldest part of Barcelona. A native English speaking guide living in the city for 13 years, with a Spanish wife with lots of long time Barcelona friends, I have lots of first hand information about what lies within the Catalan people, how what makes them "tick", and more importantly, why! And as a professional Actor I´ll bring to life the stories, humour, triumphs, disasters that go to the soul of the Catalan people. Oh yeah, we´ll also meet a VERY HAIRY CATALAN MAN!!

Secrets of the Gothic Quarter Reveiled

Patrick gave us a wonderful tour. He brought the history to life with his colorful dialog and showed us some interesting information we would not have gotten on our own. I would highly recommend this tour.

This private tour is a must! We learned so much about the history and culture of Barcelona and Catalonia. Patrick is very knowledgeable of Catalonian culture and provides an intimate experience as he traverse (literally and figuratively) through 2000 years of Catalonian history.

Chocolate, Churros and Caganer
Barbietravelbug, 24-11-2021
Hot Chocolate thick like pudding with scrumptious churros was only one of the many experiences on Patrick’s fascinating tour of the Gothic quarter. From small alley ways to the many stories about how Las Rambles came to be and to the only synagogue in all of Barcelona , hundreds of years of history came to life! This is a not to be missed private tour! Looking forward to our next tour with this very knowledgeable tour guide!
Great Barcelona Gothic Quarter Tour in English

Our guide, Patrick Taggart, was very good. He made the Gothic Quarter Tour so interesting and fun. He brought it alive for us. He is a great story teller, and very knowledgeable about the area and its history. He spent a lot of time with us, and answered our questions with enthusiasm. We would highly recommend him. And he does know where to find the best pastries and chocolate!
