We had to pick up our voucher from a local travel agent in Barcelona and had a bit of difficulty finding the place, but did eventually. We were advised there to take the sub way which we did and then had a short walk to the stadium. As we had the voucher we were able to walk straight in and avoid any queues. Having done a number of stadium tours we were expecting it to be guided, but on arrival we found it was self guided which meant we could go at our own pace. There was a lot to see, so many trophies before we actually got out into the stadium and that was when the WOW factor kicked in. The stadium is amazing and it would be a real treat to be able to watch a match there. We were only able to see the away dressing room and it was disappointing that we could not have access to the home dressing room. Every seat in the stadium has a great view of the pitch and you almost need oxygen for when you get up to the high level of the press box. Inevitably you are guided out through the shop which has a wide range of merchandise. There are also eating places just outside the stadium. You really need to allow a good half day to see everything and soak up the atmosphere.
The hotel pick up was prompt and we had an entertaining driver to take is on the trip to the factory. We were able to see three different types of Boeing aircraft in production. The whole set up was quite amazing and there was a lot of imformation to take in and after the visit I made some notes to enable us to remember the most important things we had seen. It would have been useful to either have been given a short hand out or leaflet with some of the key details on. In addition to the main tour there was also a display of lots of interesting things relating to aircraft design and production and a book store too. We really didn't have enough time to spend in these area and would have welcomed having an extra 30 minutes there. A really enjoyable trip and we learned a lot.
