An excellent excursion, the Guide Sergio was informativeand helpful. We walked the Gothic center of the city and then with a bus visited Montjuic endind at the Sagrada Familia. A wonderful place not to be missed.
Our tour guide Gloria was great. She was very knowledgeable and made sure to keep track of our group and really accommodated the people with us who struggled to walk and made sure we had bathroom breaks and places to sit. She also recommended places to eat and see after our tour was over.
Great walking tour of the old part of Barcelona and then got in the van to go to Sagrada Familia. We were so glad we took this tour and got to go in the church. What an amazing thing to see!! The last part of the trip with the drive to the Montjuic hill was ok. Tour guide gave a great recommendation for lunch where we had Paella and Sangria after the half day tour ended.
Our tour guide was incredible my people... and the church was a site. The walking tour part was a bit too long for my family and could have been accomplished in 1/2 the time. While our guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant - next time we might have just done a church tour and explored on our own. Make sure your family is up for a long history filled walk before you sign up. If you are, then this is a great option!
Michael is an amazing guide. His love for his city is apparent, and his joy in sharing it with us was so obvious. His knowledge of the city and La Sagrada Familia is amazing. We truly enjoyed the tour!
This was a great tour. We covered a ton of ground and our tour guide, Judith was excellent. She was well informed and made the subject matter very interesting. Sagrada Familia was the highlight of the tour and doing a skip-the-line tour of any kind here is worth the price. Additionally, i found that having a guide here was crucial. It is a truly fascinating place and a large part of the experience was being able to learn the background of what we were seeing. Additionally, the walking tour of the gothic quarter and the visit to Parc Guell was excellent. I enjoyed La Pedrera, but would have preferred to skip this and spend more time at Parc Guell. This is the only thing I would change. The small group dynamic enabled us to cover way more ground than we otherwise would have been able to.
Our guide Camillo was extremely knowledgeable about history, art, architecture, and had a great command of the English language. He was very kind and helpful to me when I needed to avoid stairs. He also has a great sense of humor.
