How does the free tour system work?
This is the title given to tours that work on a donation basis (at the end you can give the guide what you felt the tour was worth). In our small company we are confident enough to let you decide the value of the tour. You can not get a fairer system and this ensures that our guides give their best service every tour.
Do you I need to make a reservation for the free tours?
Reservations are not strictly necessary but recommended as numbers are limited for quality purposes. If you haven't booked, we strongly recommend arriving to the meeting point early in case the tour fills in. If you are a large group of 7 or more you will need to book a private tour.
What if I arrive late to the meeting point?
Usually there are spaces left and there is no problem joining the tour later. Please bear in mind that we can only hold reservations until the starting time so it is very important to arrive before then. Occasionally a tour might be full and late arrivals won’t be able to join in. This also includes customers with a reservation as their space will have been given away to the people on the waiting list.
Is there a lot of walking involved?
Not really. As long as you can do a short stroll around a city you are ready to walk a Runner Bean tour.
Is the tour wheelchair accessible?
Yes. There are a couple of small inclines on the tour but this is never a problem. If you visit the Roman Temple, there is a small ledge that leads into the hallway of the house but from this area you can still view the columns.
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.
Can I 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?
We generally stop for a quick toilet break (5 minutes or so). The tour is 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 afterwards. Your guide will be more than happy to help you with recommendations.
