Barcelona Street Style Tours weave you in and out of the city center's streets and allies highlighting a more contemporary Barcelona. On the Barcelona Street Style Tour, you will learn about the emergence of street art/graffiti in Barcelona and get up close to some of the best work in the city center, check out some of the city center's best skate spots, inexpensive tasty restaurants and hard to find contemporary/underground galleries and boutiques that cater to street style as well as some unique bars where you can be amongst this burgeoning scene.

 We offer 3 separate tours, 2 walking tours exploring both sides of the city center and 1 bicycle tour. Our daily walking tours: The "El Borne/ Gothic Quarter Street Street Excursion” begins at the southwest side of the Arc De Triomf at 2:00pm everyday (weather permitting). This tour showcases Barcelona's historical and signature brand of street art/ graffiti as we bring guests in and out of Barcelona's historically art rich neighborhoods highlighting the many creative gems those neighborhoods still remain with today. Also on this excursion we'll point out a couple of skate spots, a few local bars, inexpensive and tasty restaurants, underground galleries and boutiques.

This tour lasts approximately 2 hours. The "Raval Street Street Edition” begins at west side of Placa dels Angels and MACBA (just inbetween the main entrance and bookstore La Central) at 4:45. This tour is a bit more adventurous as we walk our guests throughout the mysterious Raval district pointing out some of the city's more contemporary art works found in the street. We also venture out to the district of L’Eixample where we'll check out a grand scale mural and two of Barcelona's more infamous and recognizable Okupas (squat houses) where we'll explain the history behind them and their connection to Barcelona's urban culture. This tour is approximately 1.5 hours.
