Madrid Combo: City Sightseeing and Skip-the-Line Prado Museum Tour

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

The mini bus provided did not allow any real view of the city except at street level. Very disappointing along with the guide whose English was very poor. She spent more time with her Spanish-speaking travelers than with the English speakers in part because her English was limited.
The guide at the Prado was excellent and the tour worth the time.

Our guide was Feliciano. He was excellent in every way. He knew his history and his food and wine. I can recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys the pleasure of good food and excellent wine. What a treat to be with this man.

Salvador Dali Museum, Figueres and Cadaques Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Very poor experience for my sister and I. Museum was crowded with school kids and hundreds of tourists. I do not recommend this tour for older people as it requires too much effort to just get around the collection. The Dali House was a better experience since the house staff permit only 8 people entry at a time.
Altogether a very disappointing trip. Our guide seemed preoccupied and gave very little information while travelling to the museum and none on the return trip.

'The Shadow of the Wind' Walking Book Tour in Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Very worthwhile. Even though I was the only English speaker on the tour and the guide spoke only Spanish, her slow speech (at my request) helped to make the tour inviting and enjoyable. Don't even consider this delightful evening walk without reading the novel.
And her patience with my poor Spanish really helped me pick up some vocabulary - another plus.

Barcelona Hop-on Hop Off Tour: North to South Route

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

There are two routes within the North-South tour. Route A was not very good because the recorded tape was of poor quality. The Route B part of the trip was much better. However I am not happy with audio recordings replacing a live guide. Thought this tour could have been better with someone telling us the history and culture of Barcelona instead of announcing the names of stops along the way.

Good but very limited tour for the money. I could have just gone to the park on my own with my guidebook and done better.
