Book this tour to get an overall view of Barcelona and decide what you want to explore. However, before you leave home book online tours of Gaudi's Park Guell and of the Sagrada Familia cathedral because they sell out fast or you'll wait in LONG lines for a time slot. Riding the funicular was a real treat. You learn a little of Franco's fascist dictatorship and the history of the Gothic Quarter.
Fantastic way to start a trip to Barcelona, it shows you all the highlights to visit at your own more leisurely pace. Our guide was excellent
guide was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable and flexible in making sure he accommodated your needs. We had a wonderful day and learned a lot. Thank you so much.
Great tour to do, we actually stayed close to the gothic quarter and got to know our way around here quite well. Very interesting and well worth it. I also did a night tour of the gothic area.

Our tour guide, Alberto, was fantastic. The gondola ride was fun. The highlight for my mom and I was the Spanish Village. I wish we had been able to spend more time there exploring on our own.
Great tour, enjoyed it very much. I suggest you book tours to really give you a feel of the culture, the history and what you are looking at. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about Barcelona. Great tour would highly recommend. The tour company also have so many other tours as well.
Our guide was excellent. The gothic area is so interesting. Need about 30 minutes longer at the cathedral though.
If you have limited time in Barcelona this is the tour to take. The city is beautiful and has been well maintained since the 1992 Olympics. The cable car ride to the fort gives you a magnificent view of the city.
There were 5 of us and we were accommodated nicely. Tour information provided was insightful and the guide was very informative and knowledgeable. We had a great time for our first visit to the beautiful city of Barcelona.
Great half-day trip. You see a lot in a very short period. Well worth the money.
Very good tour and informative tour. It is not the main touristic areas (which was expected) and a nice mixture of bus, walking and cable car. It ends at the Spanish Villa which was really nice.
We really enjoyed this tour. It did exactly as described and we had a lovely guide called Cinta(not sure if that spelled correctly).

This tour took in all the sights and if we had known we would not have done this tour but stayed with the private tour as they seem to overlap and visit pretty much the same areas. This was a bus tour of around 15-20 people so keeping it on time was the main issue, but a good tour just the same.
The entire process from the arrival at the agency to pick up and drop off was very professional. The tour guide was well informed and very mindful of our need to have time to explore alone.
Our only suggestion is that perhaps for an additional cost you could add pick up from hotels within a prescribed area.
This was great! The one reason we booked this was to get to ride the cable car and appreciate the view from Castell de Montjuic. Our guide, Fernando was incredibly knowledgeable. He was also our guide 3 years ago to Montserrat - highly recommended!
Beautiful tour, very organized and buses were very clean, tour guide very informative.
This tour was a perfect way to start our stay in Barcelona! The whole process was easy; we walked to the tour office, got our official tickets (even a free small bag!) and hopped on the air conditioned coach for our first portion of the tour. Our tour guide was AWESOME!! So happy and knowledgeable about little (and big) things along the way. The walking was easy, and with it being in the morning the temperatures were nice. The cable car ride was definitely one of our favorites; incredible views of the city and sea. Everything was just great. The cava (sparkling wine) at the end was a nice touch. (*I would advise ladies to wear longer shorts/skirts or bring a scarf to wrap around you as you are not allowed in the cathedral with short bottoms or exposed shoulders. Our guide did have some for people to use, which was nice!). I would definitely recommend!!!
