United States of America
Our guide was a super-great driver and that was necessary on that little curvy road that climbed way up onto that mountain. Montserrat was an outstanding experience as was the museum. We were sorry we did not have more time there because there was so much to do and see. Our trip to the winery was also great. The young lady there did a fantastic job of explaining everything about their making of the wine and the samples she provided to us were excellent.
This tour was amazing!
We rode the Western route on the afternoon that our cruise arrived. The next day after departing the ship, we boarded the Eastern route for the entire circuit. After this overview of Barcelona, we hopped off and walked La Rambla to the market. Since this was the weekend of a Formula One race, this area was extremely crowded. We hopped on the bus and toured back to our hotel area. Thoroughly enjoyed our time getting acquainted with Barcelona.
great service going and coming from the airport in Barcelona
GOOD DRIVER ON TIME GOOD DROP OFF
Luxury car was in excellent condition. Driver spoke English, was prompt, courteous, helped us with our luggage and drove safely. He also pointed out sights of interest along the way to our hotel and told us the names of the streets we used or were crossing. Although taxis were plentiful at the port so the lines were not long it was nice to have a car pre-arranged with an English speaking driver.
Excellent service once again!
The tour was great. We loved Montserrat. Visiting the monastery on Easter Sunday allowed us to see the icon of the Madonna of Montserrat as it was on public display for the Easter Sunday service! The Skip-the Line Park Guell entry pass allowed us more time to enjoy the park and seeing the exterior of La Sagrada Familia Cathedral was amazing. The only thing that would have made this tour even better was if it would have included tickets to see the interior of La Sagrada Familia.
This was poor value. Be aware that this was 80 walking out of a full day tour. The best part was 'skip the line' at Sagrada Familia'.
We waited over an hour to try and get on the first bus to redeem the tour?? Then the schedule was difficult because the bus didn't show up when we were trying to get back to the ship and we had to wait 45 minutes and then it stopped running to our final port stop, so we had to walk over a mile to get back to the ship shuttle bus? It was very terrible and the traffic was so bad that when we finally got on the bus it took hours to get to our destination thus causing us to miss some places in fear of getting off and trying to catch another bus but we did get off to see the fountains at the end of our day, causing the difficulty of getting back to the ship:-
Very good, the only way to see a town that you have not been in before to figure out where you want to go and see.
Just a hop on hop off bus but good to have ticket prior.
This would have been 5 starts, except instructions from Viator stated their was a free shuttle from the cruise ship port to the first stop of the Hop on Hop off. After multiple attempts and talking to bus drivers, taxi drivers, etc. their is no such thing. We had to pay three euros each day to get from the port to town.
Alexandra was our small group tour guide to La Sagrada and other sites in Barcelona. For some reason our small group of eight had to take two taxis to Montjuic and meet her there with the van she was driving. It was inconvenient and cost us precious touring time.
After touring La Sagrada and driving away from it, we were stopped by the police for not having a current van inspection certificate. Consequently, Alexandra could not drive the van any longer and the tour group of nine including Alexandra had to take two taxis wherever we went. This, of course, caused us to lose a lot of touring time.
We lost about one hour of time at the police stop, and had to cut short or eliminate entirely some planned stops. At La Pedrera we only had about 20 minutes, so we practically had to run through the building and weren't able to visit Park Guell at all. I can only speak for my group of four people, that we were very disappointed with this shore excursion, but not necessarily with Alexandra. She tried her best to make the most of a bad situation.
Because of the facts I have mentioned, I think we should be compensated for a shore excursion that did not meet our expectations nor supply what was promised.
Definitely worthwhile purchasing tickets ahead of time. There was a long line.
lost my voucher need to get reimbursed by viator
Barcelona is a lovely and neat city. Capturing the attraction sites is no difficulty at all by just following the route of this convenient and reliable hop-on hop-off bus tour! Really we had a wonderful time! Must try!
Efficient and on time pick-ups and very respectful drivers!
Worth doing it. If you take cruise please note that you need to paid a small fees for the shuttle bus from cruise port to this tour bus station. The only things I would like to said is it was crowded inside the bus. Many tourist don't get down from the bus hence, I need to wait a few hour before I can hop on the bus from the station. Around that station, also have similar but different tour company, so make sure you get to the right bus. Otherwise, it is worth to doing it as Barcelona is a super huge city !! :)
This was so fun. We were able to help "pilot" the boat. Our captain (Paul) was so fun. I would take this same tour again. We really had a great time.
Driver was at the port with the sign with my name on it as we came out of the terminal. Straight to the hotel with no problems.
Good and a rewarding experience. No waiting and glad everything seems to be OK.
Great tour would do again.
It was a pity that there wasn't much wind but we had a lovely tour! :-)
We were very lucky to enjoy a late afternoon sailing trip with "Johnnie" and were the only customers on the trip so had the boat to ourselves. Despite the fact that it was overcast, we really enjoyed the trip down the coast and back to the harbour. We had some really lovely wine and it would have been great to have a little longer on the water.
