This tour required us to meet at the tour office. It is not difficult to find. Our one-day tour was actually the morning and afternoon tours combined. We were given a lunch break between tours, then returned to the tour operator's office for the afternoon tour. Our morning guide was very personable and provided commentary in both English and Spanish. We did walk through a portion of the old town and were able to go inside the cathedral. We did not do a walking tour of Port Olympic. As for seeing the Olympic stadium, that was a drive-by viewing. We did go into Poble Espanol and have a drink of the Cava, a Spanish champagne. It would have been nice to have had more time to wander the village. In the afternoon, our guide was very informative and also multi-lingual. We covered everything listed in the itinerary. You get to see the outside of the Sagrada Familia Cathedral. It is an unfinished cathedral, but worth going back to see. There is an admission fee for this church to help pay for the completion of the construction, ongoing for more than 100 years. This tour was mainly a look at the work of the architect, Gaudi. We would recommend both the morning and afternnon tours as a way of seeing Barcelona more in-depth.
Great tour good guide, maybe we should of seen a bit more, but its a big historical city and 1 day is just no enough, remember a lot of walking on this one.
I had only a short time in Barcelona and we covered a lot of areas and had excellent explanations. I really enjoyed the stop at Pueblo Espanya, the World Exposition, about all the regions in Spain. The next time I visit Barcelona I'll visit some of the areas we visited in more depth.
Exellent tour guide. Afternoon tour more enjoyable.
I booked two tours in advance, through Viator. Thinking it was a bit chancy to do that, I was skeptical when I arrived. Now I must commend the fabulous guides, Fernando and Jordi for making available such a rich experience. The knowledge of these two guides was amazing and the courtesy and friendliness totally unexpected. I enjoyed these so much that I came back on April 19 for the another tour. Both guides had great knowledge, friendliness, kindness, and amazing ability to ‘guide’ all of us through marvelous views and information.
The guides for both sections of the tour were the best I have experienced in any city--Fernando and Jordi. The courtesy and knowledge were exceptional--cannot imagine a better experience.
Very good tour, very well paced with ample time to "check out the sights" without getting bored about being "in one place too long." Guell Park was, in my opinion, the high point of the sightseeing tour.
We enjoyed the tour very much. It is the best to see the most of Barcelona in one day and would do it again. The tour guide was very good and liked to show his home town to us.
Very good tour guide.

This was a great experience, but we spent too much time over lunch at the faux Spanish village and too little time at Sagrada Familia -- not even getting inside!
A great tour taking in all the sights of the city. The tour of the Spanish Village was very interesting. Recommended to 1st-time visitors to Barcelona.
I quite enjoyed this tour. It's a great way to see a lot of Barcelona in one day. But be aware that you will NOT be granted access inside Sagrada Familia, which was probably my biggest disappointment (and I ended up booking a separate tour to do that). Also, you won't get much time to spend in Park Guell, which was my other disappointment. But if you're only in town for a few days, it is an absolute MUST DO tour. And if you're there for several days, it's a great way to taste test the city and see which sites you want to return to for additional exploration.
Amazing city! Unfortunately by the time we got to Park Guell it was dark and hard to see the mosaics. The basillica is one of a kind so we went back the next day to see the inside!
