Be Local Tours is a walking tour company with a difference. When we started our adventure in 2017 we were concerned by the growth of mass tourism in Barcelona. Especially in some of the most popular destinations such as the Gothic Quarter, the rising number of guided tours with big groups of people generated distress to both the local community and the travellers. This is why we decided that we would work in harmony with the local surroundings and maintain a sustainable form of tourism allowing us to be respectful to the local community.


We are actively involved in the social and ecological ambits of Barcelona, and through our Mosaic and Graffiti Experience Tours we work with local artists and businesses helping to increase their presence in their chosen field whilst encouraging the local artistic community to thrive.

As we progress as a company we will be increasing these elements which can be enjoyed by all travelers safe in the knowledge that in participating with us they are also contributing in a practical way to the environmental,social and cultural health of the city and the planet.


Since the time we started we wanted to be a truly eco-friendly company. Even if we knew our carbon footprint at Be Local Tours would be very small, we took into consideration that people use their computers/smartphones from home to reserve places, take the plane to get to Barcelona, and even take a taxi or car to come to the meeting point, consuming a small part of CO2.

So we promised that for every 100 people who decided to come on our tours Be Local Tours would adopt 1 tree through Environomica Onlus donation portal, thus compensating for all the CO2 produced on our part

Q Ecofriendly & Responsible Best Practices

We adopted a Small Group Philosophy, reducing the maximum number of our groups to 16 people. This allowed us to reduce the impact of our tours on the local community and provide a better experience to our customers.

In 2018 we decided to go further and become the first real eco-friendly company in Barcelona. We started a collaboration with Environomica, a non-profit organization that plants trees in Colombia to fight deforestation and global warming. For every 100 people that join our tours we adopt a tree in Sierra de Santa Marta. By the end of 2018 we had already planted 80 trees.

At Be Local Tours being an Eco-friendly Company not only means using less paper and that the paper is 100% recyclable, but also not printing small flyers for tourists that 99% of the time end up in the bin or worse in the sea! However, this is the least each company should do and we are no different.
