If there was a minus star I would have picked it. It was difficult to find the tour office to start. Once we got started the first stop was delightful but rushed- we were late getting started waited for someone who never showed up. The wine and tapas were delightful as was the guide but we we rushed, rushed, rushed because we had to walk half way across old Barcalona with two of the four of us having difficulty walking. It was a long way over difficult walking conditions. The guide was really pushing us because she "hoped we would have seats". What? We had paid for seats! We did eventually get there and they found seats in different places in the performance location, can't say theater. The show was lame at best, we hoped one dancer could live to make it through the show and listening to the singer was painful. After the show we were supposed to walk back to the originally tapas bar location again to visit two more bars. Since we were close to our hotel so we said forget this and left the tour. There was one more couple on the tour also and they too chose not to continue with it. There are lots of tapas bars in Barcalona and the Flamenco show wasn't worth it, save your travel dollars for something else.
The Sagrada Familia is amazing and it would not have been nearly as wonderful without a guide. I asked a local vendor where the location of the tour office was (showed him the voucher) and walked right to the office across the park. It was a hot sunny day and the line was blocks long, this was the best decision we made about the whole trip.
Too much time in the Napolean appartments and not enough time seeing art. We were there early enough in the morning that we could have seen more art without the crowds. I was actually very disappointed. Could never suggest it to anyone unless they didn't want to actually see much art. Guide was knowledgeable, location easy to find.
