Good, but Could Be Better
, Jul 2019
The tour was very good and covered a lot of the highlights of the city. The second half was spent on Gaudi. I didn't feel it was worthwhile to tour only the outside of Sagrada Familia. When I emailed the operator, I was told there would be time to visit inside and purchased tickets separately, but there wasn't. This was a big miss in my opinion and less time could have been spent at the park. I also think there should be a better way to see the apartments than just walking past them. The guides were great.

In this day we had 2 guides.The one in the morning very inexperience showing us harts instead of telling us of the history of the place we visit.I understand that she is working there only for 2 months .The whole bed experience change in the afternoon when we have been lucky to meet Cristina Maky.Very nice presence exceptional knowledge and the will to make us love what she loves.I did not have time to go to the agency to make those comments to Julia.The 2nd day we had the 3rd guide ...very nice but instead to go with us inside for explanation of Dali work the way others guides they have been doing ...let us wonder by our self.It is very important the quality and knowledge of those guides and I think that your company should make a point about that.It is not enough to go around the city ...but for those trips we did need explanations of places we see

Paid for a tour in English but it ended up being in English and Spanish. Since the guide was a native Spanish speaker she was far more comfortable conversing in her own language so English tourists got about 1/5 of the information. Very frustrating.

This was an excellent tour as the sights in Barcelona are far apart and difficult to reach on your own during a day. We were limited on time in the city and this tour provided an excellent overview with many historical details. My teens were with me and enjoyed the tour as well. Jorgie and Cecealy were excellent guides.

, Jul 2018
We were very disappointed in this tour because we didn't really get to see much except drive around town and have the tour guide explain information that wasn't very important or helpful. This one was not a good tour at all.

The Spanish Village part could be scratched, not sure why it is actually an important sight to see in Barcelona. Also the cable car ride up the mountain is unnecessary you can't really take pictures and if it happens on a windy day you are more preoccupied with holding on to your seat and praying you get out of there alive. Maybe extant the walking tour in the Gothic Quarter or stop at the old port?
