Free Walking Tours Barcelona. Runner Bean Tours

Any queries about our walking tours?

You have the questions, we have the answers. Free Tours, other walking tours, privates… If you can’t find the answer, just contact us.










How do I recognise the guide on the free tours?

The guides will be wearing an official Runner Bean Walking Tours Barcelona tag and a vest with the company's logo and holding a green umbrella. You can't miss them. Please read the box "How do I recognise a Runner Bean guide?".

Do you recommend arriving early to the meeting point?

Yes. In order to maintain the quality, numbers are limited in all our tours. If you have not booked on the free walking tours we recommend arriving at least 15-20 minutes before the scheduled time. For the rest of the tours, just arrive 5-10 minutes early.

Do I need to make a reservation?

Reservations are not strictly necessary on the free tours but, if you haven't booked, we strongly recommend arriving at the meeting point early in case that day the tour fills in. A Runner Bean Walking Tours Barcelona guide will always be there ready to lead a tour. If you are a large group of 10 or more you will need to book a private tour. For the rest of the tours bookings are essential (you can turn up at the meeting point of these with no reservation but the tour might be already full that day).

How long do the tours last?

You can find this information checking the timetable of your chosen tour.

What language are the tours given in?

All our scheduled tours are only offered in English. Private tours might be offered in other languages. Please contact us for enquiries.

Is there a lot of walking involved?

No. As long as you can do a short stroll around a city you are ready to walk a Runner Bean tour.

Are your tours wheelchair accesible?

Most tours are wheelchair accesible. Unfortunately, there is no wheelchair access for some particular tours. Please contact us beforehand about the tour you would like to join to get more detailed information.

What should I bring?

During the summer it can get very hot so don't forget your sunglasses, sun-tan lotion and a bottle of water. Although the temperatures in Barcelona are mild for most of the year, in winter it can be cold so dress accordingly. You will also need to cover your shoulders and wear clothing that goes beneath your knee if you would like to visit the Cathedral cloister.

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.

What if I have to leave before the tour ends?

That is not a problem but please let your guide know so he/she doesn't wait for you at the next stop.

Do we stop for a break?

During the scheduled walking tours we might stop for a quick toilet break. These tours are not too long so we think that a food or drink stop is not necessary and you can decide where you would like to go when the tour is finished. Your guide will be more than happy to help you with recommendations. Of course, on private tours a longer break might be arranged.
