Great guide, very informative, and it was a perfect day to see the highlights of Barcelona. The lines to get into the church were very long and it was very helpful to essentially get right in when you have a limited time to spend in Barcelona and you can't waste time in lines. The other highlight for us was the tour of the old town - we had actually spent some time the previous two days walking around old town but this tour really was informative and showed us things that we had missed. Suggest doing the full day tour if you have time.
Definitely worth it if you are actually going to see all the museums or even 4 of them. Skipping the cues is such a bonus too.
Doing what: Barcelona Museum Pass

Excellent tour an mostly at night!
It was excellent! Especially the tasting. Nice to try other types of cava and compare flavours. Sitges was beautiful!
Brilliant tour. Ariadna was our guide and she was fabulous, it rounded off what had been a slightly traumatic evening with something spectacular. I hadn't realised what a genius Gaudi was until this tour and it made me enjoy Sagrada even more the next day. Well worth it!
Keep in mind that you have that the tour does not pick have a hotel pick up. I took the took on my first day and I did get lost trying to find the pick up area. I missed the tour but the guide was nice enough to pick me up an hour later. I would recommend this tour to see barcelona in a short time
This tour exceded my expectations. The special effects are a fun touch the view from the roof is spectacular and the apartment is stunning. We especially liked the light show projected at the end the Cava was the icing on the cake!
The tourguide was very knowledgable, friendly, and spoke perfect English. The tour was very organized from start to finish. We walked most of the time which was fantastic. We did have a van which the guide took us to different spots of the city. Overall, I would highly recommend taking this tour!
Nils was our guide and he made our all-day tour most enjoyable and educational. Nevertheless, I thought the price was excessive, but as I wanted to secure openings ahead of time and wanted a skip the line type of tour, I had little recourse. This tour had been recommended by AAA. Everything went smoothly at the Explore Catalunya office for check-in. We did everything that was promised. Exhausting, but exhilarating and we felt that we could be let loose on Barcelona on our own after that. Skipping the line was a real time saver--the lines for the three Gaudi-related stops (Sagrada Familia, Park Guell and La Pedreda were all over an hour long, if not longer. There was a quite a bit of walking in the Barri Gotic, but Nils was patient with the slower folks and still covered all the highlights and history. The group was small enough that everyone could hear him when we were out walking. We had plenty of time for lunch on our own. So, if you are interested in a small, personalized tour and saving time is worth the price, I certainly recommend this tour.
The tour guide was very helpful, and was kind enough to take photos of guests, which I appreciated as I was traveling alone. The projection techniques are nice and really make the tour something special. Personally, I would have preferred to have the cava on the rooftop area, as the setting was just lovely, but it was fine as it was. There were only a dozen or so people on my tour, which made it nice and intimate (and possible to get good photos of the rooms). If it had been a larger group, I think I would have felt like I overpaid (as Casa Battlo is cheaper and the architecture inside is actually more elaborate). But a combination of the rooftop area (which, in my opinion, is better at La Pedrera than Casa Battlo) and the small, intimate group made it worth the extra 10 euro as compared to the Casa Battlo tour.
