The tour was a nice introduction to Barcelona, although it did not pass by any of the Gaudi sites. The tour had a good pace, not too hurried, and not too much time spent in one spot. The guide gave good information, and was good in communicating how much time we had at Barri Gothic, and also Poble Espanyol. We had about 40 minutes free time in Poble Espanyol It was a little bit short, but still doable. We did not taste any Cava wine as described in the Viator website. The tour guide did not mention anything about tasting Cava wine on this tour. There was also no mention about stopping at Hard Rock Cafe at the end of the tour. However we were fine with our bus returning back to the original pickup stop instead of the Hard Rock Cafe. It seems like the bus driver was open to dropping off tourists at various locations at the end of the tour.
Informative. Wish there was more time at Spanish Village stop.
Gave us a real taste of Barcelona and helped us to decide how to best spend our time during the remainder of our stay.
I was robbed in the Gothic section and was upset that the tour guide did not warn us.
It was packed with information and the tour guide recommended good restaurants and where to go out for the night. Tip: go on the tour the first day you are in Barcelona to get all this information.
Excellent starter trip or if you are limited for time.
We really enjoyed our tour. The guide was excellent, constantly switching backwards and forwards from English to Italian can't be easy. The only negative from our point of view was that there is nothing of Gaudi on the morning tour.
This was our second Viator trip in Spain within three days, and we thoroughly enjoyed both. We learned so much about this lovely city by the Mediterranean Sea. It was definitely worth taking.
Given the amount of time this was a good introduction to Barcelona. I would certainly praise the tour staff - very efficient and pleasant.
Really good fun and we saw all the things that wanted to in one go
the cable car rider over Barcelona was the highlight. the tour guide kept running late at places which was frustrating. everything was repeated very loud in French, German, Spanish, English which was annoying. but the tour did give you a good overview of the city.
The tour was good, went to all the places it stated and the tour guide was very nice. She spoke lovely English so there were no communication issues at all. Bus was new and air conditioned. My only criticism is that rather than holding up an umbrella so everyone could see her, perhaps the tour company can hold up a sign. Also, on some of the tours purchased by the cruise ships, everyone gets a "walkie talkie" type of apparatus so you can clearly hear everything the guide was discussing. I'd have given it a higher rating if I hadn't gotten separated from the group. While my back was turned taking a photo, I turned around and the group had moved on. I would have thought someone in the group would have pointed out that someone was missing. I wound up having to pay for a taxi back to my hotel as I could never find the group again.
The tour itself is very nice. However, the buses used could be maintained better. Had to wait for a replacement bus because the microphone system wasn't working and that wasted time where we could have spent more at a stop. The buses were also dirty. We only had 40 minutes available time at the Spanish Village. The tour guide was good to accommodate the situation.
