What a lovely experience to escape from the busy city for half a day! Christian took us up on Tibidabo from where we had an amazing view over Barcelona. After a great photo shoot and a lot of explanation provided by him we started our walk into the natural park. The vegetation is rich, it was really quiet and the chapels along the old Roman road were picturesque. The walk is indeed not too challenging, so if you manage 3-4 hours walking it will be fine. At the end in Sant Cugat with its fantastic monastery we sat down in a tapas bar with delicious food and great Sangria. If you do not want to book a trip further away from Barcelona, this tour is a great choice as you can discover so many things so close to the city. Christian is a great host and a wealth of information. All in all, it was such a local and authentic experience!

I did not expect that Barcelona offers so much nature so close to its city limits! Going up to Tibidabo by public transport including a trip with the funicular was already fun. The views over Barcelona were fantastic. Walking through nature along some ruins and chapels was exciting and to be rewarded with delicious tapas at the end was another great aspect of this experience. Christian explained us so many things about the city and its history. He is super friendly and he makes this trip very personal. I really recommend this Nature Walk!

This is a fabulous experience with a stellar tour guide and I highly recommend it. Christian knows Barcelona well and was the perfect guide: he is personable, genial, and it was obvious he wanted the experience to fit my expectations. Taking the train with Christian was a great way to get to know that part of Barcelona's great public transport system. The hike through Collserola is definitely a "must-see," and even though the day I picked was misty and some of the views were obscured, Christian made it worthwhile! Collserola is gorgeously green and pastoral and along the way Christian pointed out old churches and ruins that tied in with Barcelona's history. We took a funicular to the top, hiked across the mountain, then walked into the town of Sant Cugat, a beautiful place not well-known to area tourists. Spending a day touring with Christian was the best decision I could have made. Later in the week I took a different Airbnb tour with him and the second tour (through the old city) was just as informative and fun. There is no better way to get to know, and enjoy, Barcelona!

I really enjoyed this tour with Chris. Chris is a good and kind guy and very knowledgeable about the history of the area where we were. I really appreciated ruins of the casino, the old monastery in San Cugat and of course the long walk in the nature. We ate tapas in San Cugat, and believe me, after that long walk eat and drink something is like rebirth :D Thanks a lot Chris for your time, your story and for the deviation to go on top the tibidabo!

I really enjoyed the Nature Walk with Christian, as it showed me a totally different side of what Barcelona has to offer. Spending time in the quiet woodlands is a treat after the hustle of the Barcelona downtown. Christian is a great guy and very knowledgeable of the area - we passed some ruins, churches and springs on the walk that I would otherwise have missed. The tapas bar Christian chose was great and with local flavor - guess we were the only tourists there. All in all a very recommendable experience.

The walk was really pleasant. Christian helped with all the logistics and was very friendly and knowledgable. I loved the walk itself - the views are super. And as it was a Tuesday we hardly met anybody in the park. We even had a quick drink and a tapa in Sant Cugat before heading back to Barcelona. Definitely to be recommended!
