Georgi was a great guide and the tour was incredibly interesting.

YES, YES, YES. Great value and tons of crucial information for your money. There is just too much to look at in these busy areas to try to read, absorb, look, and navigate directions in busy traffic areas on your own and get anywhere close to the same experience. Since Modernism is such a prominent and cultivated cultural feature of Barcelona, you owe it to yourself to treat yourself to this tour.

Our guide, Gina (I think) was a lovely lady and the tour itself was lovely. Would have been nice if there had been a sign in the tourist office as I know more than one member of our group ended up waiting on the wrong side.

Although informative, I felt the tour fairly rushed and unable to spend time in certain museums that we had access too.

The guide was very informative. The 2 hour tour was probably 2 or more miles long. He was also enthusiastic. We had a small group of 6.

We traded this tour, as it was redundant to what we had already seen and done.
Instead, did the Hop On/Hop Off bus to visit Park Guell...as well as revisit the Sagrada
Familia on a dry day.
