This  exclusive tour takes you through  Barcelona's pedestrianized Medieval Gothic Quarter in the comfort of a bicycle taxi.  Every participant has  earbuds to hear your guide well as you travel through  Barcelona's oldest districts.  Not believing in drive-bys, we make stops at all the important sights so you can  get out,  have a closer look,  take  photos and  hear the amazing legends and history that fill this area! Prices are all inclusive; pedicab (bicycle taxi with driver), entrance tickets and Spanish sales tax (21%). 
Dating back to the Middle Ages, which is evident in its  narrow winding roads,  shady plazas, and  beautiful architecture, you are likely to find  undiscovered gems tucked away in the  nooks and crannies of the narrow streets.  The Gothic Quarter is situated between El Born and El Raval, the neighborhood is home to the  Barcelona Cathedral,  Plaça Sant Jaume,  Plaça Reial, and the city's  most intact stretch of Roman wall. Its winding streets make it an  easy and pleasant place to get lost for an afternoon, but  seeing it with a guide will unlock the area's  historic and cultural significance.  This  exclusive Enchanting Barcelona tour combines  history and culture, making it ideal for travelers of all ages.  Your expert guide will accompany you on an exploration of the secrets of Barcelona's most historic district, passing through  narrow streets filled with the sounds of everyday city life. Discovering this quarter  in the luxury of a rickshaw taxi is ideal for those  who are not fond of walking.  These  two person chauffeured bicycle taxis are a great way to see  this pedestrianized area! Barcelona expanded greatly in the  Middle Ages.  The  architecture that was in fashion at the time was  Gothic - hence the name that this neighborhood still carries.  Think  peaked arches,  gargoyles, big round  stained glass windows and  buttresses, and you have  a visual of what to expect from  this charming area!  In the center of  the labyrinth of streets that comprise this area, is the  very well preserved Roman Wall.  One of Europe's  largest medieval Jewish quarters is not to be overlooked either and your guide  will dive into this  newly revived area sharing with you the  history that shaped Barcelona and Europe's history.  Your guide will take you  inside the Antique Synagogue. You'll go  behind the scenes to see  Roman ruins dating  back 2,000 years, see a copy of the agreement  Christopher Columbus signed, hear  the stories of the king and queen who funded his explorations, see  old headstones from the  Jewish cemetery, hear the history behind  a secret door and much more on this  exciting tour through a  live pop up history book!
