This was a fantastic excursion we were on after getting off our cruise ship in the port of Barcelona. Be sure to keep the local number of the tour agency conducting it the ship actually let us off either of two exits, so a quick call to the tour agency made sure we went to the right exit to be picked up by their shuttle bus. Just as described, this tour let us pack in a great deal in the limited time we had between when we were let off the ship, and had to return to the port. I highly recommend this tour if you are in Barcelona only for a day, especially if you are there as part of a cruise. The tour guide, time at locations, and sights were excellent.
Our guide, Elizabeth was excellent. She was a wealth of knowledge, very well organized and made sure we saw all of the highlights. We definitely want to return to Barcelona and would enjoy future tours with her guidance.
Our tour guide Elizabeth Ellie was very knowledgeable and personable. The van was comfortable but if the sight was on the right side and you were sitting on the left side, you didn't see it. I strongly suggest/urge that when passing the amazing architecture of Gaudi in the city, the van stops and lets everyone out so everyone can see them. I missed Le Pereda simply because I was on the wrong side of the van. We also didn't have enough time to see everything in Park Guell, which I would have liked to do. Perhaps another 20 minutes and we would have seen the rest. Montserrat was spectacular. You really need a full day to see that area.
Montserrat was Magical! Our guide Sylvia was so very knowledgeable and did a wonderful job leading our group. Be warned that the drive is on a winding road so if you are prone to car sickness, you might take a pill. We saw the major sites in Barcelona as well. I do wish we had been given a bit of free time around La Sagrada Familia as there were some great shopping spots and street artists, but I understand we had a lot of ground to cover and there was just not enough time. The day was great and we feel like we got a great first taste of Barcelona!
Our tour guide Nardine was the best we have ever had. He was very accomodating. We learned a great deal about Barcelona and enjoyed his conversation the entire day.
Our guide Cristian was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about Montserrat and Barcelona, and had a lot of interesting information about Gaudi. It was a small group so we were able to maneuver the crowds quickly and got to see more of the area than a large group in a big bus would have.
I highly recommend taking this tour. Christain, our tour guide, was very passionate and knowledgeable !! All of our Viator trips were amazing !
Our guide was superb and so knowledgeable in history.
Thank you very much.
The Montserrat tour was very interesting. We rode the skyride to the top of the hill and got some great shots.
Park Guell was very interesting and different. Lots of room and space is being used up by this creator of different types of buildings, and churches.
I do not believe I have ever seen such a church as the one that is still being worked on without an end-date in sight, because this is what makes it interesting with all the new spires,etc.
We were zipped off to a 9 hour tour promptly at 9am. There were 12 of us in the group and we covered a lot of places in the 9 hours. Anna,our tour guide was very knowledgeable and speaks good English. We wished we had more time but it was a quick overview of Barcelona and Montserrat.
The tour was great. We loved Montserrat. Visiting the monastery on Easter Sunday allowed us to see the icon of the Madonna of Montserrat as it was on public display for the Easter Sunday service! The Skip-the Line Park Guell entry pass allowed us more time to enjoy the park and seeing the exterior of La Sagrada Familia Cathedral was amazing. The only thing that would have made this tour even better was if it would have included tickets to see the interior of La Sagrada Familia.
Everything is fine. However, I wish I could see the interior of the famous cathedral.
Again, an excellent tour with a knowledgeable and attentive guide
I was delighted with Martha as my guide in barcelona. She was so informative plus her English impeccable after having travelled so much herself.
The trip to Montserrat by train was a great experience too since with the accident up further we wouldnt have been able to get there by bus .I have taken several pics of that trip.The choir boys sounded wonderful
For me though,the highlight was seeing Gaudis architectural genius and that was my reason for returning to Barcelona cos I had missed seeing it the last time.
Sagrada famillia is magnificent but only wished that I had included a tour inside the church too.Loved hearing the details that Martha had to offer and then the Park Guell -this embodied Gaudis genius of recycling energy,water, light and recently aUK architect described Gaudi as a man a century ahead of his time. Looking at the designs one can see how childlike he was in his designs also.
I have a wish for a future visit to see the colona guell as well as the music museum which I was unable to sgueeze into this trip.
I was very concerned since it was my first shore excursion with viator but was very happy with the way we were all taken care of
will not hesitate to book again on future trips
