Very short tour, not much information given during the tour, I recommend the hop on hop off tour offered by any competitor, much more info and all day on and off at your leisure.

I enjoyed this tour immensely and was given half an hour to look in the houses at the Parkway, by the time I came out ten minutes after that half hour - my tour group had left. Pity the tour guide could have come look for us given the short distance where she stood waiting to where the houses were situated. I made my way back to my hotel from the Parkway.
The guide spoke poor and largely unintelligible English. We simply drove past (in heavy traffic) the Casa Pedrera and Casa Batilo. We had to walk nearly a kilometre from the coach to the Sagrada Familia, and I have mobility problems. When we got there, we spent about 2 minutes outside it while the guide told us how much it had cost and was costing, then she took us across the road to the gift shop. She appeared to know nothing about the iconography of the Gaudi front, and we did not see the more modern front. On learning that we were not going to see inside the cathedral, and would have to walk all the way back to the bus, we left the tour. We were able to spend about an hour, free of charge, inside the cathedral, which is wonderful, and an indispensible visit. The tour was not worth the money.
It went very well and I managed to visit all the things I wanted to see.
Was not very happy with the tour guide who talked a lot but didn't say much.
When I booked this I asked for an English tour and assumed that we would have just that. However, our tour was given in three languages making the content minimal. Our tour guide did her very best but it took too much time to impart information three times. What we saw was very interesting but we could have learned so much more if she had been able to stick to just one language. I would not recommend this tour to others unless, like us, they had only one afternoon available and this was the only option.
This was the most disappointing tour (we had 21 in total), I would not recommend at all. Firstly the tour is a bilingual tour...where on our booking sheet does it say that? had we know we would of booked an English speaking tour only as time is precious and you don't want to wait around for the Guide to translate into different languages. It really ruin the whole experience.
But more disappointing than that was the fact that on this tour we only got to see the outside of the Sagrada Familia, WHERE ON THE BOOKING DOES IT SAY THAT???. Why on earth would I want to visit the façade only of one of the most important monument in the Barcelona??? This was the main reason we went to Barcelona and to only get to see it on the outside was most disappointing, and because we only had 1 day in Barcelona we did not have time to go ourselves. I would not rate this tour but I have to tick at least one star to be able to submit my review.
short but comprehensive. we can highly recommend this tour. In few hours you can see a lot.
Good tour to see the highlights though we did not see the Bull ring as stated. The 2 Gaudi houses are drive-bys only so you have the luck of the draw whether the traffic lights allow you time to see them or not. Construction on Sagrada Familia meant we only saw 2 sides of the church this trip, which is too bad. Park Guell is pretty but may not be worth the time for some people. We left the tour at the Cathedral and walked back to our hotel since it was closer than ending the tour at the Museum (since we were on evening tour adn it was closed anyway). Our Guide was good and provided nice commentary in EN, FR and ESP.
Very disappointed. Impossible to appreciate Gaudi's buildings while speeding past in bus. Not enough time at Parc Guell. Group too big to manage and tour tried to achieve too much in limited time!
The place is nice . But the tour guide take too much time to introduce .
gaudi is a master. however, I would prefer a small group tour if there's a choice. again, this is typical julia multilingual tour. u get only a fifth of the commentary as the guide repeated in 5 languages.
the tour started late and ended late. you didn't see much more or learn more than you could on your own. the microphone equipment we were supposed to use to hear the guide was broken and it made hearing her difficult when we were out on the street in front of the buildings.
