Large group requiring audio to hear the guide. Equipment difficulties made it hard for me to hear, but it was an interesting and enjoyable tour.
The tour is worth your money. I would recommend buying this tour if it's your first time in Barcelona. Make sure you have comfortable shoes. The guide was competent.
The tour itself was very good and we enjoyed it. The guide was very knowledgable. What I did not enjoy at all was the experience of starting the trip. My ticket told me to report to 2 Placa San Jaume. We did so at 3.10 on the date of the tour, thinking we had plenty of time for the 3.30 start. After waiting 10 minutes, we were told the ticket was wrong and we should be at Placa Catalonia Tourist Information. We ran there and joined the queue. One of my daughters went outside at 3.30 to check if the tour was there as we had been waiting , but still were not near to being served. The tour was outside, but we had to wait in the queue for the audio sets, which meant we held up the start of the tour by 10 minutes. This was cast up to us during the tour by the guide - very embarrassing. If we had been given the correct information by you, all this stress and unpleasantness could have been avoided.
The guide was pleasant and understandable but somehow not too much information was transmitted. I think a walking tour on the busy streets of Barcelona is difficult but I have taken better walking tours, for instance, in New York City.
Tour was late starting because staff arrived at meeting point at start time and then had to first hand out head sets, etc. Guide crossed a large intersection, leaving half the group behind, who then had to try and find him on the crowded street. He was very well informed.
This was the third of 3 Viator tours we attended in Barcelona and it was disappointing because the young man who led the tour seemed to be fascinated with history. We stood in one spot at the start of the tour for a full 30 minutes as he related the history of Barcelona from the Roman time to the present. At each stop, he mentioned a bit about the architecture and then went on more about history. He was a pleasant enough young man but needs to stick more to the topic and not to stand in one place for 30 minutes before going anywhere. I think if one of the supervisors monitored him he could turn out to be a better guide.
This tour had more than 30 people trying to keep up and see what was being talked about. Although the headsets allowed you to hear it was unacceptable in terms of maneuverability. This tour needs to be capped and if more sign up, add an additional guide!
The guide was kind, but not a good speaker.
