This tour worked out well for me and my travel companion because we only had 3 days in Barcelona and we were time crunched. We were picked up at our hotel at the time we were told to be in the lobby, and we were with one other couple in the van. We went to Montserrat first so that we could beat the tourist crowd as it was a Saturday morning. Our guide brought us to the town square and to the cathedral and asked us what we wanted to do. My companion and I wanted to see the museum and go shopping, and the other couple wanted to hike up to the top of the mountain. He gave us a meeting place to meet within an hour and we all went our separate ways.
We drove back down to the city and from there we stopped for a lunch at a tapas bar our guide suggested. It was great! From there the city tour began. He drove all over the city and let us out at each stop to take pictures. I was happy we didn't go into any of the buildings because there wouldn't have been time for that and we were tired already. At the end of the day, we asked him to drop us off at the shopping mall near our hotel and he did. I liked this kind of tour very much because I could see the city all in one day and I was only in Barcelona for 3 days so I got time to do other things. 5 stars! I believe my guide's name was Alex, but I can't remember. Thanks, Alex!
