Judith was great. The tour was great --- we got an overview of Barcelona and were able to see Sagrada Familia and Park Guell and skip the lines! Judith brought Barcelona to life for us -- history, explanations and all.

The tour guide was excellent and quite knowledgeable about the various location that we visiting. the Sagrada Familia was amazing, but Park Güell was just as interesting to visit. One thing to note: when we stopped in the morning, it wasn't near the Catalunya National Art Museum. I went there the night before, but wanted to get a nice day shot of it. Nevertheless, we did pass by it on the drive to Sagrada Familia.

Have used Viator before in other cities, and the tours and guides have always been of the highest quality. Our guide this time,Judit, was no exception. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for the city Barcelona was wonderful.
We only joined for the half day tour, but covered a lot of ground on foot and in the mini-bus. The undoubted highlight was the Sagrada Familia. The outside was incredible in its detail, but there was a definite jaw-dropping moment when you first step inside and see the amazing interior.
Overall, the tour was a great intoduction to what Barcelona has to offer, and I would highly recommend it.

This tour was great and I would recommend it to everyone. The tour guide Rodriguez was brilliant. He was very knowledgeable and told us about some of the Catalan history as he drove us around the city go get to the Sagrada Familia. He answered all the questions everyone asked as we walked around the Gothic quarter toward the end of the tour. A very enjoyable experience.
