A full-day adventure that covers both the best of Barcelona and the ruggedly spectacular Montserrat pilgrimage site! Limited to a dozen people, it's our only Barcelona sightseeing tour that includes hotel pickup.
Such a wonderful tour! Our guide picked us up at our hotel in a van we shared with 3 other tourists. A local, he was extremely enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and considerate. It was a great time-saver to be delivered to Montserrat and Park Guell rather than having to find our own way. Our guide provided a very informative tour of the outside of Segrada Familia - what a treat. We were able to see a great deal of Barcelona while learning about its history and culture. Every stop was a beautiful experience. It's hard to pick a favorite, but Montserrat is not to be missed. We chose to visit the art museum there, an impressive and moving collection.
Excellent tour with informative guide.
It was very nice and we did see a lot of Barcelona in one day. I would recommend the tour.
Just sensational. Dolca our guide just had so much information for us and was so accomodating. She's really very funny and really explained all the history as well as the local politics from all sides so we could make up our own minds on issues. She gave us information on customs and traditions as well as detailed explainations on Gaudis work and the beautiful architecture of the city. We had time left over so went to visit other places in the city that she thought would be of interest to us. Quite a bonus and we finished at La Ramblas so we could wander along on our own. Highly recommend this tour, one not to be missed.
I simply love Martha, she knows her history and she even talked about the culture in Catalan and in Spain as a whole. I really enjoyed the Montserrat trip. Furthermore, I believe that the small group is a lot more enjoyable than a big group tour, the tour is not rushed and we have time to interact with our fellow tour members.
Martha is really a gem and a very good tour guide.
Marta, our guide was the best guide I ever had in all my experience with side trips in several countries! HOWEVER the office made a terrible mistake. They told us to walk to a separate hotel becasue of parking since we could not be picked up at ours. They told the guide and the great driver to pick us up at the hotel. We finally called but all of us lost over a n hour of the tour becasue of this stupid mistake.
Back to Marta, I have a profound hearing loss and she was so understanding about this. She explained so much about the Spanish culture and religion and politics and landmarks that I was just fascinated. She is one of the most intelligent and knowledgeable people I have ever met. I loved the itinerary and would not change that a bit. THANK YOU for a wonderful day!

WOW! What an incredible tour! Our guide Marta was fantastic, knowledgeable and thoughtful! Originally we were told our hotel might be out of range for hotel pick up but in the end there was no issue and we were picked up at the front door right on time! My only compliant is that the tour only lasted 1 day! This was a great sampling of all the top Barcelona sites. You could easily spend a full day or more at any of the locations visited on the trip but this overview tour was perfect for our long weekend getaway. My husband and I were both impressed with Marta's candid talk about Barcelona and all the fun insider info we received, it was these fun little personal tid-bits that made the tour and the entire day over the top. Thank you for a wonderful experience! I would HIGHLY recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see as much as possible in a short amount of time. 2 Thumbs up!!
For 1-day tour, covers lots of ground, with honest, knowledgeable, and friendly Dorsla as the guide. Take this tour in the first days of your vacation - to cover many places, most locations are walk-bys with good explanation by the guide so treat it as preview - revisit the place and buy the entry tickets in your later days of vacation as you wish.
First class vehicle, comfortable and roomy. First class driver, thoughtful and careful. And our guide, Marta, was just exceptional. Well planned, logical schedule made the best use of time, navigating crowds and traffic. Sights were well explained and questions thoughtfully answered. Take this tour!
Enjoyed the tour. Good guide and comfortable vehicle. Would have been nice to get there in time to hear the Boy's Choir.
