Super day trip, lots of walking but worth every step. The La Sagrada Familia is breath taking.....have to see. Barcelona is a must to visit for a week...so much to do. Loved our tour guide.

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!

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.

We booked the tour to pick us up and drop us off at the cruise ship. My wife were the only ones from our ship, so they had a cab waiting for us and then arranged for a cab to bring us back

We highly recommend this tour company and tour. We had a fabulous time. Thanks for the wonderful experience

Barcelona is amazing. There's so much to see and the tour guide, Josep, took us on a whirlwind experience on the highlights of Barcelona. The sights in Barcelona are breathtaking and this tour will allow you to get a glimpse of this within a short few hours. Would definitely recommend.

La Sagrada is not to be believed. After viewing the church from the exterior we were given 1-1/2 hours to tour the interior on our own. I thought that this was going to be too much time, but it turned out to be too little. There is so much to see and read. The models of very sections of the church were marvelous. It is hard to believe that they will actually complete the structure before the 100 year celebration in 10 years. We later viewed an apartment structure and a failed residential development by Gaudi. He was amazing! We saw other areas of Barcelona, but a shore excursion is not nearly enough time to view this city. We had some free time for lunch and tried one of the local restaurants the guide suggested. The tapas were very good.

Joseph was an amazing guide. He was the best guide we had all week on our Mediterranean cruise. He was a true local- his family has been in Barcelona for 400 years! He was enthusiastic, interesting, and his main goal was for us to enjoy our day. He went out of his way to make sure we had a good time and were safe. He basically stopped in the middle of the crosswalk to make sure we all safely crossed the street. He gave us genuine recommendations of where to eat. I had the best meal on the trip thanks to Joseph. Although, we didn't have a lot of time at Park Guell, we got to see 3 of Guadi's masterpieces.. La Padrera, Sagrada Familia, and the Park. To fully experience the park, you need at least 2-3 hours. Since our tour was several days after the terrorist attack at las Ramblas , we were to see the Sagrada familia last as opposed to first due to a special mass that was taking place until 3pm. There was only 4 of us from the Norwegian Epic doing the tour so we were nervous getting back to the boat on time by 5pm. Joseph reassured us it wasn't going to be a problem and kept the group on time to make sure we got back to our boat. Ideally, it would have been great to have Joseph come inside the Sagrada Familia with us to explain the inside. But he did an amazing job explaining the various facades of the cathedral. It is the one thing not to miss in Barcelona. We only had about a half hour to explore the inside, which was enough time. Joseph met us promptly at 430pm and got us a taxi the taxi fare was included in the ticket and we were at the port terminal by 4:50pm. Joseph went above and beyond to make sure we saw everything and had a fantastic experience. I highly recommend this tour especially to people who are in Barcelona on a cruise just for 1 day.

Great tour. Barcelona is an incredible city and our guide Camillio was very good about giving us all the history and interesting side bits about the city. The gothic quarter is simply amazing. The La Sagrada Familia is not describable. It is simply awesome. We enjoyed this tour and the city very much and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Engaging tour guide, Carlotta. Small group. The day was hot and we covered a lot of ground. Highlight was walking tour and Sagrada visit, note you won and #39;t have time or access to visit the towers (this was a highlight of mine on a previous visit).

Very pleasant guide directed us through the streets of Barcelona and we used head sets inside La Sagrada Familia. The small group had 22 guests, more than I expected.

This was a great way to see a lot of Barcelona in one day. Plenty of time at the La Sagrada Familia but would have enjoyed a less rushed time at the Parc.

Very well done. Great highlights - La Sagrada Familia, Gothic Quarter, Olympic Point. Gloria was very informative and courteous. It was a very crowded day in Barcelona Catalonia National Daybut Gloria was very effective in steering us around crowds. Just enough time at each location. Ensured that we were able to get back to the ship by providing a taxi.

Absolutely a PERFECT tour of the Best of Barcelona. Our guide, Gloria, was fantastic! She was both knowledgable and excited to tell us all about her city. The sites were also fantastic, from the Montjiuc hill and the Gothic and Jewish Quarters, to the unmatched La Sagrada Familia, we enjoyed every second of the day. We also thoroughly enjoyed eating lunch on our own at one of the Tapas restaurants Gloria recommended - Bilbao Berria. Finally, let me say how much I loved the city of Barcelona. It is beautiful, historic, clean, and not overly crowded. I will be back. Thanks again, Gloria!! You were one of the best tour guides we have ever had.

This tour was excellent. Gemma is the most enthusiastic tour guide and it is very clear that she loves her city and wants to share with everyone, a true ambassador to Barcelona. La Sagrada Familia was an amazing place. Gemma showed us many interesting place in this beautiful city. Vale, let's go!

Excellent tour. A bit too short at the end as we did not have much time in La Pedrera before our
ship sailed. The Guide was wonderful and informative.

ANA WAS EXCELLENT! You get to see Barcelona during the whole day, learn the history, culture and embrace Gaudi's works of art. Probably one of the best tours I've ever been in my whole life. Highly recommended. Not a whole much to see after you finish here.

Our top priority for our Barcelona visit was to go inside the La Sagrada. We had seen a television documentary about this amazing place, but our cruise ship did not provide a tour of the inside, instead their tours just did a drive by. Our travel agent then told us about Viator, and we will always use Viator in the future. The pickup from our ship was easy and on time. Our guide was extremely interesting and knowledgable, and went out of her way for everyone in our group of 8.

We missed our pick up at the dock-too many terminals and pick up point not clear. Once we found our way to the starting point, our guide Judith was thorough and personable and interesting.
