Abstract: Tourism has undergone a deep change closely linked to the accelerated use of the Internet and social media. In this context, the concept of free walking tours free of charge are becoming increasingly popular throughout Europe. This article analyzes from an exploratory approach and based on the principles of evolutionary economic geography, the free walking tours as part of the collaborative economy in Barcelona. This approach allows us to understand this emerging collaborative market and how it impacts the relationship between businesses, the tourists and the destination.
