Our tour guide was excellent.From timely pick up at our hotel, to quick admission to the Sagrada Familia, she was on the ball!! The motor coach and driver were also very good. I would definitely recommend this company.

Our tour guide Sonia was the best! She provided such helpful commentary and tailored our tour to our family 3 teenagers. While my husband and I could have stayed at Sagrada Familia with Sonia all day, we kept the tour moving and saw many of the sights of Barcelona. It was a great first activity so that we were able to get a feel for this great city.

Excellent guide and information. Super flexible and gave us options as to what we wanted to send and spend time with Got us into the Sagrada and even knew how to visit that unforgettable site in the proper method. Picked us up in a clean van, great driver and just fabulous. I wished it was more like 6 hours instead of 4-ish but just a great trip.

Our guide was terrific and was very knowledgeable particularly about the Sagrada Familia cathedral which was one of the most incredible places I have ever seen. She let us spend as much time as we wanted there. We all enjoyed it.
