A wonderful tour of the highlights in Barcelona. Our English speaking guide Marco was incredible. He spoke very clear English, was well versed in all things Barcelona and was a great, safe driver. He showed up promptly at our hotel, customized the tour to our liking and answered my many questions about the historical sites and current customs and politics of Barcelona. I highly recommend this tour and especially Marco! Note -this should be your first tour then you can revisit the sites you find most interesting.

Rocio our guide met us at our hotel. She was very knowledgeable, personable and prompt. She ably customized our day so that we visited the places we had wanted to visit, recommended the perfect tapas spot for lunch and accompanied us to a shop where we could buy authentic handmade espadrilles. All in all a good day in a beautiful city.

Andre was a wealth of knowledge and very good tour guide. He took us to his favorite lunch spot so that we could eat like locals off the tourist path...exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommend the tour.
