I'm glad we took this tour-Barcelona's a big city! Montserrat was definitely the highlight. The guide was great--we even had an older man leave the tour group to go back to the bus he wasn't feeling good. He just told his wife, so the tour guide was unaware until we all got back to the bus and he wasn't there. She was very concerned and went out and found him. We felt like we were in very safe hands the whole time.

An amazing trip. Small group is the way to go. Shore excursions with Viator are a much better value than ship offerings.

This is a very long tour, bring snacks or food and water. The view of Montserrat was worth the drive. Sagrada Famillia was magnificent, saw only the outside of the church. Our tour guide was very good, professional and intelligent, learned about Famous Gaudi who started building and planned Sagrada Familia, park Guell, and some unique buildings in Barcelona. I would recommend this tour for in depth 1 day shore excursion tour. If you want to enjoy your Paella and Sangria, stay another day in Barcelona. I will be back in 2026 to see the completed Sagrada Familia church.

We were on an 11 day cruise and took a tour every day. This was by far the best tour and the very best tour guide we had the entire trip. The guide was 1st class...knowledgeable about everything we saw and spoke perfect English. We enjoyed the tour immensely. We would recomend it to anyone .
