We would highly recommend this tour. Liz F
Terrible experience
Mohamed_D, Jun 2022
Terrible experience :( I paid 123$ and when I arrived they asked me to pay another 80$. The guide was okey, but because it’s ts from Spain, its English was terrible and very difficult to understand what he said. And the last activity (Casa Milo la pedrera) he did not explain anything, he take us there and stay just 3minutes and told us to do the tour by our selfs. Overall: it was a bad experience and very expensive.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hello, I am sorry but your review is quite misleading. We very clearly explain in the tour description that the entrance tickets are not included in the price. The reason for this is because we have had some customers in the past who have already been inside some of the attractions we visit and so we give them the chance to exclude some parts of this tour. We are not trying to trick anybody, or charge them again. The amount stated her is also wrong. Depending on the exchange rate of the day, the initial payment is about 90 US$, and the entrance fees are about 60 US$. In the last stop of the day, La Pedrera, the guide goes inside with everybody, gives a detailed tour, but then leaves everybody to spend as much time as they want in the house. The tour ends here, but we don't see the need to make everybody leave when we do. I think it's nice that we let people stay as long as they want. Regards, Robert

This tour turned out to be better then I expected. My 16 year old daughter and I did half day tour. Well organised, fully prepared, Rod, our guide, was an excellent story teller. Also, Rod was paying attention to older people in our group, trying to make this experience nice and smooth. Lots of interesting information, but not overloaded. Perfect, thank you very much!
Amazing History & Art tour

Best day in Barcelona with Sergio

The entire day with Sergio was memorable…best day in Barcelona. Checked off so many boxes in most enjoyable fashion with super knowledgeable Sergio. His interest in subject matter was also palpable which is so critical. Learned so much about beautiful Barcelona and Gaudí!

Gloria was an informative, energetic and sensitive guide to Sagrada Familla and other scenic areas. Especially enjoyed having a bus for part of the excursion, as walking was difficult for me.

Incredible way to experience the magic of Gaudí. Traveled with my two girls 8 & 10 and while they did not understand all the details, the guide was engaging.
Best Gaudi tour
My husband and I had a wonderful time doing a full-day tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kind. He explained the history and meanings of the sites we visited in detail. Highly recommend this tour.

Really worthwhile
Grainne_C, May 2022
Sergio was fantastic! Such in-depth information and done in such a fabulous fun way1 Made the day really worth while. thank you!
MaryAnn_D, May 2022
Park Guell. Sagrada Familia was beautiful but could have spent more time doing other things rather than going into detail about every carving & scene on the outside. So much there it got overwhelming and we couldn’t keep up. Not pleased that tour did not end at the same place we started. Had to take a taxi back from last tour stop. Viator times are wrong. I thought I booked a tour that ended at 230P but when we got there they said it was a full day tour.
Best tour (out of 4) we had all trip
