Flavian is a brilliant tour guide with impeccable English and very polite courteous manners. He did make an itinerary for us to follow on the evening after we finished with him. I am very impressed with his high quality service and goes that extra mile beyond the call of duty. Please let him know.
Excellent. A "must be done" tour. No hassle, no fuss, skip the line at all attractions visited, and Lidia, our guide, an excellent companion. A lot of details, history, art details, catalan insight, all what you need to know to see and understand below the image.
In one word, EXCELLENT!! A VIP tour, no looking for bus station, because pick-up is from your hotel, drop-off at same location, or where you want. No "hurry-up" gathering for "the group", no hassle due "late group members" because you have this tour only for you. Price is right for what you get. Indicated for families or small group of friends, but not more than 6-8 persons. We were 4, and it was amazing.
Thanks Lidia for all what we learned about "Castellunia" (land of castells) and local history.
Muchas gracias por todo! Sorin

This turned out to be a very good tour. Our guide took us where we wanted to go and told us some very interesting history and facts. Well worth the cost of a private tour especially having the skip the line benefit into the Sagrada Famillia. Would recommend for a small group 4-6 wanting a private tour.
Excellent tour, informative and interesting... Loved our guide, Jordy.
Our tour guide picked us up at the cruise ship dock and gave us a great tour in the city. Veronica's English was super...she was very informative and we thoroughly enjoyed our half day with her.
Great tour - we had a wonderful tour guide - Belen - she was well informed, flexible and we all felt like best friends by the end of the day. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone, especially if Belen was your guide. The tour was well woth while and we sw a lot more of the city then if we would have tried on our own. the lineups were big now, I can't imagine what they would be like in the summertime!
We did a private tour for the three of us. It was awesome our guide was very knowledgeable and she was very flexible if we wanted to stay a little longer somewhere or skip passed it. Barcelona is an amazing city and we would have not known how to get everywhere by car on our own so it is well worth it not to have the stress. We went during the Spanish holiday so traffic on the streets and the line ups were less then normal which was even better. Would do this trip again in a heart beat.
This is the ONLY way to see Barcelona! Our tour guide, Lydia, was absolutely fantastic. It was like having an audio guide for the entire day. She knew SO much about the city; the history, the politics, the best places to eat, the Catalan nicknames for the various buildings, and to top it all off, she was hilarious. Having a local telling you pieces of relevant information about the different places you're visiting totally enriches the experience. Being able to skip the lines at La Sagrada Familia and La Pedrera was a god send (trust me, you don't want to get stuck in the line at La Sagrada Familia! It's mammoth!). The hotel pick up and drop off is great too, you don't have to worry about anything on the day of your tour. Even the entry tickets are covered.
Get a group together, pay the few extra dollars and do this tour. Our group loved it. You won't regret it.
Veronica was our tour guide. When I go back I will ask for her again. She was very knowledgeable and kept the tour interesting. She was able to answer all my questions and you could see she loved Barcelona. She never rushed us. 'Skip the Line' was nice because the lines are very long, maybe 1 or 2 hours and you get to drive up and walk in saving the time for view/touring rather than waiting. All of the Gaudi works are interesting, especially the Sagrada Familia.
Lydia was an absolute gem! Her knowledge, ability to drive and park, her commitment to us for an extended day and her ability to speak 6 languages was awesome!! We loved all of the attractions and she gave us what we asked for and more! A wonderful day, pricey but worth every penny!
Tour was of great value. Our tour guide Julia was very knowledgeable and informative plus pleasant at the same time. We enjoyed her wealth of knowledge and understanding of the country and it's history. We would highly recommend this tour as the basilica of the Sagrada Familia was a highlight of our trip; both impressive and inspiring.
This tour was far better than we had hoped. We had a private tour with Julia who was a phenomenal resource for the cultural , historical and day to day activities within and surrounding Barcelona. Skipping the line is a must as there is so much to see and avoiding hours in the queue is imperative. Julia tailored the tour to our likes which made it that more special. What a wonderful resource!! We would recommend this trip and her to any and everyone!!!
A terrific guide and a well planned schedule for the day, no waiting at all and seeing everything we had in mind.
Fabulous tour and guide who took us to see many great sights and history throughout Barcelona. This is a great tour also because you skip the (very long) line at Sagrada Familia, which is a must see!
This tour is a must if you do not want to stand in line for hours to see Sagrada Familia. Our tour guide Fillipo from Explore Catalunya-- was excellent. My husband and I took the all day private tour to see the major sights of Barcelona---definitely worthwhile!!
