Great day with Marcos. He seemed happy to share his love of his city and region, including discussion of the political and economic developments of historic and current events.
Tour guide Marrha was very knowledgable. They were able to accommodate the pick up time and area, since I had to change a hotel.
And besides what is there not to love about Barcelona. I would book with you again.
Top notch tour. Our guide Christina shared so much info on BCN. I would highly rec this tour and this guide

This was a fantastic tour. We were picked up at Plaza Catalunya because our hotel was just a little down on the Ramblas. Our 15 people tour van showed up on time and our guide called us by name! We were the first to be picked up and we went to each groups hotels to pick our group up.
We were given a clear explanation of our schedule and were taken to Montserrat first. This was because our guide Dolsa wanted to beat the crowd of the long weekend. Dolsa is very warm and friendly. Her english is fluent and she gave us great information on our one hour drive to the mountain. We did not have time to explore every trail around Montserrat but it was a nice overview of the place.
In the afternoon, we went to a vantage point on Montjuic, walked around the outside of Sagrada Familia and then to Park Guell. Again, we did not see every corner of the park but had enough time to get a good idea of the place. We were then taken back to our pick-up point.
What made the tour so special was Dolsa. She knew when to let us doze off on the ride, when to give us the photo ops we want, gave great information, minimized how much we had to walk, and took great care of us all around. She actually sounded like she liked the places she took us to, which I cant say of other guides.
We were 4 to take the tour together and there were 5 others in the minibus with us. The tour was great and our guide was excellent. This is definitely the one to do if you have a full day in Barcelona. Very good history and culture lessons.
Very good tour for the price. Covers important places of interest in Barcelona. Important to mention that Sagrada Familia is covered from the outside only. Other places are inside tours. Tour guide was quite efficient and helpful.
This tour was excellent.. Our tour guide was nice and show us everything around Barcelona without getting rush . Highly recommend.
Excellent tour. Marta the tour guide was pleasant knowledgeable and devoted. She explained many hidden historic points that mad the tour fantastic.
Our guide, Peter, was excellent. Never felt rushed . Saw everything we expected and more. Great choice for your first day in Barcelona as an introduction to the city and more relaxed so you can recover from jet lag. All our family enjoyed it ( ages 13 to 53). Highly recommend!
Joe , our tour guide , was amazing ! He taught us many important aspects of the city, he always cared of us and his English skills were excellent . Thanks to him we visited other places that we did not know about it . He was very kind and knowledgeable . My husband and I really enjoyed !
Our guide Marta was so knowledgeable, she made our visit to Barcelona so much more meaningful.
highly recommended with great tour guide Elena but more time should be spent at Montserrat
The tour was excellent and provided a wonderful of Barcelona and Montserrat.
Excellent guide. Cared about her group and was so knowledgable and passionate about the history. Enough time spent in areas. Very good driver too. Totally recommend this tour. It made me realise I need to spend more time in Barcelona, so this quick highlight tour was worth doing.
I highly recommend this tour. We were able to see many places around Barcelona as well as see Park Guell and Montserrat. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Great tour. Both the tour guide and the driver were terrific!. We enjoyed learning about Guidi the famous archetec as well as about Montserrat. I would wholeheartely recommend this tour
Hotel pick up for this tour was extremely helpful. It's often stressful to be sure you find the departure point and arrive at the correct time for many tours, but the hotel pick up feature alleviated this stress.
We were picked up at the promised time by our skilled van driver and Elizabeth, our tour guide. the BMW van was extremely clean and comfortable The tour of the city began right away with items of interest in the commentary.
The visit to La Sangrada Familia was a walk around of the building. That was plenty for us, as we really didn't feel the need to enter the church, although we had heard it is quite beautiful. Gaudi was quite the whimsical architect and his creations are all so recognizable with the certain style he is famous for.
We then made our way to Park Guell pronounced Park Guay and saw the Gaudi created community. It was very interesting.
After that we headed to the countryside for the Montserrat portion of our tour. It was a pleasant van ride there some very curvy roads, however and once on top the air was so fresh and it was beautiful. We enjoyed a buffet lunch for 2 it was 31 euros but was tasty and included all you wanted and more. The complex/restaurant had the most amazing views. The entire complex is very clean and enjoyable. The visit to the Montserrat was well worth the trip.
Finally we drove back to Barcelona and viewed Montjuic by van and saw the site of the 1992 Olympics and gardens that thrive on this beautiful hill. We were all then delivered back to our hotels.
It was a wonderful, stress free day made especially great by Elizabeth whose knowledge of her home city of Barcelona was vast and made the trip very educational and pleasant. I would definitely recommend this tour for Barcelona first-timers as you feel you know the city quite well when it is complete.
This was an excellent tour in every way. Our tour guide Marta and our driver David were a delight. Marta speaks both English and Spanish fluently and clearly and was a wealth of information. I would highly recommend this tour. Had a great time, saw a lot and learned much about Spain and the Barcelona area. Great job!
