Our narrator, Jordi, spoke fantastic English and was very knowledgeable about the city and the areas of the tour. It was interesting to learn about the Roman history of Barcelona and see some of the Roman ruins in the old city.

One of our highlights in visiting Spain. The English tour guide was excellent, really brought it alive and took us to places we would have never found on our own. Most highly recommended to anyone visiting Barcelona!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our morning tour through the Gothic quarter, with our guide Sandra. She was entertaining and instructive, with a very funny sense of humour. Absolutely the best tour we've taken.

Great intro tour of the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. Walked around for 2 hours and learned about the history of the various buildings. Really interesting and definitely worth the money. Very satisfied we did this as we got a great tour of the area and were able to see all of the important sights. Definitely recommended!

A very informative guide with very good spoken English and some very interesting facts

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Brilliant tour guide - knowledgeable and entertaining, and with a good pace.
My only criticism is that it says you absolutely need to print your voucher, and that it's not acceptable to show it on a phone screen. As we booked the tour once we were already on holiday, without access to a printer, that was quite stressful, although in the end we did manage to get them to print it at the tourist information, where the tour leaves from.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We received a lot of information about the history of Barcelona. WE had a map to follow. We had excellent quality headphones. Trips were organized so that one tour group arrived at a location as another group was leaving. It was extremely organized. I highly recommend this company. WE want to go back to Barcelona!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This tour managed to guide us through Barcelona's beginnings to present times, not just the more recent 1000 years. It moved along at a good pace, with adequate time for questions, without feeling information overload. If the weather is hot, do the early tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Our guide was excellent. This is a must see in Barcelona.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015
