Nice tour but did not cover itinerary as laid out in booking.
, Sep 2019
The guide was informative and prompt. The tour failed to provide the afternoon tea, beverages, food tasting, light refreshments, and wine tasting. The two sites visited were free from admission so that was not a factor. So if you are choosing this tour because of stated itinerary beware. It was a nice tour but was essentially, transporting and a guided walking tour. Bottled water and bagged snacks were available in the vehicle, their was a walnut liquor tasting at a local shop in pals. One shot of each liquor. The local guide apologized and said the booking documents need to be updated with viator. Viator failed to stand behind their booking and reached out to local guide BCN Hidden Tours who failed offer compensation because we enjoyed the tour. I agree the guide did a good job but that is beyond the point. You should get what you pay for and Viator not local guide should stand behind their bookings. I use Viator often when we travel and this was our first tour that was less than spot on.
first of all, thank you very much for your review, with your review we grow and we get stronger every step we take.
Referring about the beverages, refreshments, afternoon tea and snacks, we inform you that they have been available for you in the van at every time. In the van you had available botteled water, orange juice and tea (mint or ginger). As well, we always offer to our guests some energy bars, dry fruits (mostly nuts) and some cheesebread sticks or any other kind of snack.
We are surprised about your comments, because normally our customers use to appreciate that kind of facilities. Of course, if you expected oysters and champagne, we are definetly not your company.
Referring about the wine tasting, as you said, your guide told you about the issue/misunderstanding, furthermore, your guide offered you a bottle of local wine as a compensation, and you refused saying that everything was fine.
We were shocked that 20 minutes later of the drop-off at your hotel, and after a tour that it has been developed with no 'issues', because you never complained or talked to your guide about your dissapointment, we got an email from Viator saying that you asked for a full refund. We still not understanding your attitude and we do not understand why you didn't tell anything to your guide.
All this silence during the tour, and this lack of honestly, make us definetly think that you are just only trying to take advantage of the situation and the misunderstanding.
Gerard was amazing! It unexpectedly rained on the day so he adjusted the trip and went above and beyond! Car was very comfortable and he's extremely knowledgeable (can even speak 7 languages!). He took lovely photos for us throughout the trip and even wrote us a list of experiences we must do and places we must eat whilst in Barcelona (and sharing some we shouldn't). After the trip had ended he even said to not hesitate to message him if we needed help with anything else whilst we are in this city. Thanks Gerard for being the highlight of our trip!
The tour was amazing! Our tour guide who was one of the owners- Gerard was very knowledgeable, accommodating and fun. We look forward to going back and doing other tours with this service and hopefully Gerard. We definitely recommend! Loved it!
Well worth the time and money. our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. we got to see a wide range of styles and architecture. very nice way to spend a day and get a great overview of the Spanish countryside
This was the best money I've spent on a vacation in a very long time. Gerard, our tour guide and part owner of BCN Hidden Tours, was phenomenal and provided us with an amazing experience through the whole day. He was kind and knowledgeable which enhanced our experience greatly. Do this tour!
