Kids & Family Walking Tour
April 1st – October 31st
In front of Hotel Suizo
Departing in front of Hotel Suizo, where your guide will be wearing a bright green vest, go into traditional shops trying treats like tasty candy or Christmas desserts while learning all about them.
Children will have fun guessing at the oldest shop in Barcelona as they guess what the shop sells. Then they will do a word search to find the Roman name of the city, marvel at the old fortified wall and use an activity book to solve the mystery of the ancient temple.
Then you will head to heart of power in Barcelona and hear the fantastic legend of the patron saint of Barcelona and try to spot him in the square. Children will find out where the president works and learn about the flags of the city.
Your next stop is the Giants Museum, a hidden cultural gem where giants and beasts come alive. You will learn about the different giants and the role they play during Barcelona’s festivals. The last stop will be the Medieval King’s Square where you can use your imagination and become kings, queens and princesses re-enacting stories that helped shape the city.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can older or younger siblings join the tour without feeling out of place?
All are welcome on tour. Although the tour is geared towards families with 4 to 12 year old kids, we always try to include everyone. Older brothers and sisters can become involved on a more adult level by helping their younger siblings. Toddlers (3 and younger) can join along with their brothers and sisters for free.
Do I need to make a reservation?
Number are limited to 20 people per group, including adults and children so reservations are essential if you want to ensure your place on the tour. Also, an activity pack is given to each child, so we need to know the number of people attending.
Is there a lot of walking involved?
It is not a huge amount of walking and it is broken into easy stages for the children. However, we recommend strollers for younger siblings coming along on the tour.
What should I bring?
Strollers for younger children are recommended (the tour is stroller friendly).
Snacks and drinks are also highly advisable to keep up your children's energy as we do not stop for a food break.
Summers can be very hot in Barcelona, so a good sun hat and sun cream are essential.
Lastly, please bring a few small coins as a voluntary donation entrance to the Giants Museum to support this local project.
What if I arrive late to the meeting point?
The tour will start on time out of respect for the other families and our office is closed on Saturdays for phone enquiries. The first stop takes approximately 10 minutes at the meeting point and then we will continue in the patisserie on the square and then to Plaça de Sant Jaume. After that time, we will enter the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter and finding the guide might be tricky so please arrive on time, so you don't miss out.
How about a toilet break if needed?
We do stop for a toilet break half way through the tour and we can, of course, also stop for emergencies.
What if it rains?
Our Walking Tours run in all kinds of weather. In the case of heavy rain, the tour will run as usual so please bring suitable rain gear.
