We did the morning part of this tour, which was similar to Best of Barcelona tour so opted to not do the afternoon part, which were the Gaudi buildings which we had been to on the other tour. So I say, do one or the other.

The tour has been average in the morning session, but with the afternoon tour guide, the magnificient Romina, the tour has become really great. Romina has been able to provide in a perfect English and in a very attractive way, a lot of useful and interesting informations about the Segrada Family and Park Gual. She has turned the tour to a real picnic one. Whoever wishes to go for that tour should specifically ask for Romina as a tour guide.
