What an interesting place! The tour itself is rather short, but there is no shortage of interesting things to look and and wonder about. Our guide, Vigo, did his best on our English language tour to ensure that speakers of other languages got the most out of his commentary.
This tour was very informative and well run. You can go into the park without a guide but there is not really anything to tell you about what you are seeing and the story behind the Guell family and how the park came about. Well worth the money.
I am not sure about the name of our tour guide...I think Orio. He was very knowledgeable and articulate. He explained in details and gave us time to ask questions and take lots of photos. Park Guell is a fantastic attraction. A must-see. I would definitely recommend this tour to all my friends and relatives. Thank you!
We booked with Viator for the convenience and professionalism we trust. Their network of guides is unsurpassed. The tour was the perfect combination of information at a relaxing pace and exceptional tour guide (Christina). Christina was found with her umbrella right outside the main entrance. A word of advise, it was $7 to take a cab...just do it, you'll be glad you did!
This was a great tour! The group was pretty small (6 people) so it was easy to walk around and hear what was going on. The guide also gave us time to take pictures and see things ourselves - sometimes tours will speed you on without letting you stop to take good pictures. This was great!
Our guide was wonderful. She did a great job of telling us about La Sagrada . Would recommend this tour to everyone
My wife and I spent nearly three hours in this park which is well worth seeing. Although it was a hot day we thoroughly enjoyed walking through Gaudi's Park Quell with the guide who was very knowledgable You cannot gain a good understanding of Gaudi unless you see Park Quell with someone who knows the history..
We enjoyed the park, but I wish the tour had been in the morning as it was too hot for all the hill climbing involved.
Excellent guide, only 4 pax on the trip so it was very personal.
Learned so much about this beautiful park and the history, I enjoyed every minute of it.
The fact that entrance to the park is now limited is a very good thing. The park is kept in such a good state, with the garden especially beautiful. The magic and geniality of Gaudi in all it's splendour.
A very enjoyable tour. It was nice not to have to wait in line for entry. Beautiful park.
We would not have known half of the information we found out on the tour if we had gone alone. The meeting point was confusing as it said to meet at No 18 which was a school but the guide was across the road at the gate. Some pronounciation from the guide hard to understand for non native speakers.
Great tour! The guide was brilliant, spoke great English and gave some great commentary. The Park is well worth a visit - I would recommend a walking tour as opposed to just walking round yourself as you get to hear and understand so much more about the place.
Our main reason for returning to Barcelona was to visit Park Guell and we're so pleased we did. The tour was supposed to be 1 hour 45 mins but overran by about 45 mins - it would have been difficult to fit it into the shorter time and we missed parts out even then. The 'free' outer areas of the park are very beautiful and well worth a visit - the musicians who play there are a treat and certainly add to the atmosphere. Our guide, Isabelle, pointed out lots of interesting things we would otherwise have missed. We rushed the 'pay' part rather so will perhaps go back for a leisurely walk round but I would recommend this tour even with the time constraint
The guide was helpful in his explanations of all the sites in and around the park. Our group was pleased that we had a guide rather than trying to explore the park on our own.
Nice way to see just the park. Our tour guide was knowledgeable of the park. I gave it a star below a perfect rating because I got lost getting to the park where you will meet the tour guide. The guide was mad at me for finding the group? I think I was pretty smart that I found the group in the park knowing how massive it was. I was only 10 minutes late and the fact that I paid for it I should not reamed for it. Otherwise, the tour was really good despite what happened earlier, I do recommend it if you just want to see the park. Well worth it. Make sure you get off on the correct stop and follow the signs. I got off at a later stop which lead me to the other side of the park. There are large amounts of steps that takes you way on top of the park. Nice view, but bring lots of water.
Good information and historical background about the park and the Count and Countess who worked with Gaudi on the park, but don't know if the commitment to an exact tour day and time was worth it. The 90 minute tour actually turned out to be around 75 minutes, which was enough anyway. Park was very crowded at 10 am Saturday. Also, perhaps a walking tour of Gracia connected to this tour might be nice.
Very nice tour guide but more information on where the tour actually commenced would be appreciated. All we had was "Central Barcelona or Stop 13 on bus tour" so we went to Stop 13 but was told we should have been at Central. We had no idea where the hell Central was!
Not worth the cost, 90% of the `tour` is in the free part, and the `payable` part can clearly been seen from the free part. Although the guide was interesting in parts, and answered most questioned asked (didn`t know the answers to some).
Note from Viator: Thank you for your feedback. Although Gaudi's monuments can be seen partially from the unpaid areas of the park, this tour provides complete access to those limited areas for which there is an entrance fee. The experience of this artist's works through the park (including some of the most iconic areas) can't be fully enjoyed without this paid area and of course, neither without the comments and narrations of the guide.
I would hardly call this a tour. Disappointed is not even the word I would use to describe this. Our tour was less than 20 minutes with our guide, Vigo, whose English was not great and on top of it, he was a bit of a mess. He had very bad body odor, was constantly scratching his head and I didn't believe a word he said. Nothing he said seemed like it had any credibility. We had no time to stop and take pictures or look around, and then after what was barely 20 minutes, he told us the tour was over and he would be at the cafe if we needed him. I am furious we spent money on this. The Park itself is beautiful and my mother and I went back to the beginning, took photos and the continued to explore the park ourselves after the tour was over for several hours. I would never recommend this tour to anyone.
