Great tour - packed a lot in for the day - obviously you could spend a lot more time in Barcelona - but this was a good family option for a one day cruise shore excursion. Meeting up at the cruise terminal was easy - and our family of six shared the tour with another family of five. Saw most of the big sites in Barcelona - and Montserrat was beautiful. The guide's English was good and she shared plenty of information about what we were seeing.
We booked a total of 4 tours through viator, and this was one of our favorites. It was nice to be in a small group rather than with the large groups the cruise ships offer. Not to mention, this one was a lot cheaper. Our tour guide Marta was excellent. If I were to change one thing, I would have spent less time at Montserrat and more time in Barcelona.
I'm glad we took this tour-Barcelona's a big city! Montserrat was definitely the highlight. The guide was great--we even had an older man leave the tour group to go back to the bus he wasn't feeling good. He just told his wife, so the tour guide was unaware until we all got back to the bus and he wasn't there. She was very concerned and went out and found him. We felt like we were in very safe hands the whole time.
An amazing trip. Small group is the way to go. Shore excursions with Viator are a much better value than ship offerings.
Great tour - slightly made difficult by rainy day - meeting at cruise port easy - recommended
Probably my favorite excursion of our trip. Loved Barcelona and plan to return someday! Our guide was awesome and really loved her city.
This was an excellent tour with Barcelona Day tours. Our guide Marta was very knowledgeable, helpful and professional. She met us at the port with our names on a card. She helped clients book a show and dropped us at thecstation with our luggage. The driver was great too. We saw lots of Barcelona
Great tour except for their weather. Our guide Marta and dryer Carlito were fantastic.
Very informative and fun.
This is a very long tour, bring snacks or food and water. The view of Montserrat was worth the drive. Sagrada Famillia was magnificent, saw only the outside of the church. Our tour guide was very good, professional and intelligent, learned about Famous Gaudi who started building and planned Sagrada Familia, park Guell, and some unique buildings in Barcelona. I would recommend this tour for in depth 1 day shore excursion tour. If you want to enjoy your Paella and Sangria, stay another day in Barcelona. I will be back in 2026 to see the completed Sagrada Familia church.
We were on an 11 day cruise and took a tour every day. This was by far the best tour and the very best tour guide we had the entire trip. The guide was 1st class...knowledgeable about everything we saw and spoke perfect English. We enjoyed the tour immensely. We would recomend it to anyone .
Enjoyed the tour, especially Montserrat part. Great tour - would highly recommend
Fabulous! Our guide was absolutely fantastic. She spent a lot of time with us explaining all the particulars about the sites that we saw. I would highly recommend this tour.
This was a fantastic excursion we were on after getting off our cruise ship in the port of Barcelona. Be sure to keep the local number of the tour agency conducting it the ship actually let us off either of two exits, so a quick call to the tour agency made sure we went to the right exit to be picked up by their shuttle bus. Just as described, this tour let us pack in a great deal in the limited time we had between when we were let off the ship, and had to return to the port. I highly recommend this tour if you are in Barcelona only for a day, especially if you are there as part of a cruise. The tour guide, time at locations, and sights were excellent.
Our guide, Elizabeth was excellent. She was a wealth of knowledge, very well organized and made sure we saw all of the highlights. We definitely want to return to Barcelona and would enjoy future tours with her guidance.
Our tour guide Elizabeth Ellie was very knowledgeable and personable. The van was comfortable but if the sight was on the right side and you were sitting on the left side, you didn't see it. I strongly suggest/urge that when passing the amazing architecture of Gaudi in the city, the van stops and lets everyone out so everyone can see them. I missed Le Pereda simply because I was on the wrong side of the van. We also didn't have enough time to see everything in Park Guell, which I would have liked to do. Perhaps another 20 minutes and we would have seen the rest. Montserrat was spectacular. You really need a full day to see that area.
Montserrat was Magical! Our guide Sylvia was so very knowledgeable and did a wonderful job leading our group. Be warned that the drive is on a winding road so if you are prone to car sickness, you might take a pill. We saw the major sites in Barcelona as well. I do wish we had been given a bit of free time around La Sagrada Familia as there were some great shopping spots and street artists, but I understand we had a lot of ground to cover and there was just not enough time. The day was great and we feel like we got a great first taste of Barcelona!
Our tour guide Nardine was the best we have ever had. He was very accomodating. We learned a great deal about Barcelona and enjoyed his conversation the entire day.
Our guide Cristian was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about Montserrat and Barcelona, and had a lot of interesting information about Gaudi. It was a small group so we were able to maneuver the crowds quickly and got to see more of the area than a large group in a big bus would have.
I highly recommend taking this tour. Christain, our tour guide, was very passionate and knowledgeable !! All of our Viator trips were amazing !
Our guide was superb and so knowledgeable in history.
Thank you very much.
Barcelona tour was nice. City was beautiful. Our tour guide took us to see all the important places. Exactly as spelled out. Montserrat had some amazing views. Park Guell was not my thing.
Marta knew so much about Barcelona and Gaudi it was unbelievable. She kept us on track time-wise without rushing us. Excellent excursion
