This was an excellent day tour of Barcelona. Our guide Veronica I think was friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgable and did her utmost to find parking close to the attractions. The full day tour is a must if you want to see lots of Gaudi. Very enjoyable Day.

This was a great way to see much of Barcelona in one day and learn about the city and its history. All of the skip the lines tickets allowed us to see many attractions that would normally require standing in long lines. Our guide was wonderful and provided so much insight into the city.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

Definitely worth every penny for this full day tour! Our guide for the day, Rodrigo, was superb. Very knowledgeable about the city and all the sites we visited, and spoke excellent English. Our mini bus was perfectly comfortable and well suited for a small group tour about 20 participants and the driver was skilled and able to get us where we needed to be on time, despite the traffic troubles we encountered. We had free time at each place we stopped and although there is much to try to fit into a 1 day tour, we felt we were able to experience the top sights in the city and get a good in depth overview with the mix of walking tour and driving to the best sights. We marveled at the architectural wonders of Antoni Gaudi with great commentary and detail from our guide, including the Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, and LePedrera, got to see the city from a view at Montjuic, had lunch on our own and time to explore the Gothic area a bit. GREAT JOB and thank you Rodrigo!!

Brilliant trip with a lovely guide with gorgeous red hair I am really sorry, but I can't remember her name - Jemma or Donna maybe?. Well anyway she was amazing. Her knowledge of Barcelona was incredible and she weaved us expertly around her city pointing out so many things of interest we would have totally missed if she were not with us. We booked the full day tour and I am so glad we did - we had an action packed day and saw the main sights and jumped the main queues especially at Sagrada Famila / Park Guell / Montjuic and Casa Mila. Would thoroughly recommend and encourage you book this tour for an amazing day. We saw so much - you just could not do that by yourself and get so much knowledge. Excellent trip. Will be booking up soon again with you somewhere else.

The half-day tour was fantastic. Saw all the sites we wanted to in a short period of time but did not feel rushed. Our guide was knowledgable and taught us a great deal. We had been to Barcelona before but thanks to this tour, we were able to appreciate the architecture and history of the city in a way we never had. Highly recommended.
