Sightseeing Barcelona

I want to take a moment to plug the Barcelona Guide Bureau. They offer some great guided walking tours of both common tourist destinations as well as some hidden gems that only locals knew about before. In fact I'm already regretting writing this.

In all seriousness, I know that many people would rather buy a book and wander a city and I appreciate the serendipity of getting lost in a strange place, but there is something to be said about having someone explain what that old building you're looking at is really all about and helping you navigate the maze of small alleys that leave most people confused and going: "Didn't we pass that building already?"

So, if you're visiting for the first time or coming back, check out BGB's many tours and spend a day learning something that's not in the Lonely Plant. My only question is: Where's the haunted tour and the ghosts?
