Our tour was simply amazing! From the very beginning our tour was perfect. Our tour guide Pablo arrived at our hotel exactly on time and he greeted us with a warm and friendly good morning. Throughout the day he explained history and stories of everything we went past. We learned so much about the beautiful city of Barcelona. Pablo was also kind enough to give us wonderful suggestions of restaurants and shops we should check out during our remaining days, once he got to know us more and learned about what we liked. This tour you can’t miss, and added to our amazing experience in Barcelona!

Tour was very well organized with good tour guides who were very informative.
Enough time was given for breakfast and lunch. Coach bus was comfortable, though it would have been great if there was wifi on the bus. Overall, totally worth it!

This was an excellent tour with Mateaus as our guide. We were picked up at our hotel very promptly and sped off first to Montserrat. Montserrat was totally awesome, looking at the mountains and roads to get up to the monastery. Walking was not difficult and well worth the climb to get into the chapel and hear their famous boys choir. Leaving Montserrat, we traveled back to Barcelona, toured the city and then were able to gain entrance to La Familia Sagrada, tour it on our own before meeting up with our group for transport back to our hotel. We would definitely recommend this tour and tour operator to anyone. Thank you

Fantastic as in the weather and our knowledgeable guide who brought our tickets that day and we went in without waiting on line, The sites were incredible. I would recommend La Vacanza Travel tours as number one for their guides, transportation and pickup..

Sagrada Familia and Montserrat became more memorable because our tour guide Arnau Ventayol shared his knowledge and experiences with us. He picked us up on time and drove us safely around the city and to the hills of Montserrat. We love his jokes and reminders that we need to be buckled up all the time. I would definitely recommend this tour. We saw inside and outside of the Sagrada!
