This tour is totally worth it. Our tour guide was Alex who is very energetic and provided us with personalized details of the city. We loved every single aspect of the tour and we got to see the most important things in just one day. The bus driver was also punctual and respectful. Strongly recommended.

The Guide, who told us to call her Ju was fabulous! She made everything more interesting than it would normally have been. Her descriptions actually made things come alive. Always there for ANY questions. And her small injections of some comedy made everything more fun.

A highly recommended tour helped by a passionate rendition of the city history especially on the city walking tour whereas the Gaudi-related tours spoke for itself i.e. Sagradia Famlia, Guell Park and La Predera. Our tour guide was very informative and the day long tour was good albeit a bit on the pricier side relative to other European city tours.
