This was a great tour. If you are a Dali fan, I recommend. The groups were limited to 8 people which was perfect. We were in a comfy mini-van rather than a bus. Part of the drive was highway to save time and part was scenic which was nice. The guide was very personable and very knowledgeable about Dali, learned a lot just listening during the drive. The time allotted at each place was perfect. Nothing in Figueres except the museum, however Cadeques is beautiful/quanit. The stop for lunch was memorable, nice restaurants along the water. The museum is excellent. The home is interesting.
I normally really enjoy Viator tours. I did a day tour around the outskirts of Paris and it was wonderful. The Barcelona city tour however was a let-down. Our guide was not personable at all and neither was the other lady handing out the bikes. They made us stand out in the rain while they hung out inside taking their time with the bikes. The bikes we were given were absolutely filthy. They didn't help most with bike adjustments. My seat would not stay up but the guide took off with the group so I had to ride to catch up with the group to try and let the guide know. Finally she had a look at my bike after sighing and realized the seat was in fact broken. We had to wait while another bike was brought to our location. Had they both taken 30 seconds per bike and checked them this wouldn't have been necessary. There were very few photo opportunities, mainly because the guide would stop, talk and then take off. I soon realized that I either could listen to her or I could take photos. The majority of the tour the guide seemed more interested in the lunch break. It was obvious once we got to the lunch (which was an overpriced sparse menu) it was obvious she was friends of the restaurant owners/workers. Once lunch was over, the tour was pretty much over as well. The guide was basically flying to get the bikes back to the shop. The group was too large to be trekking through a busy city; we were mainly just waiting for the rest of the pack. Didn't really see as much on this tour as would have liked. The price of the tour is excellent, just disappointed with the guide/tour/bikes.
