Easy pickup and drop off at cruise terminal plus excellent tour guide. Highlights were the walking tour at Park Guell and the visit to the exterior of Sagrada Familia. Recommend as an alternative to the shore excursion offered by the cruise line.

We did a back-to-back cruise with Celebrity and since our first cruise ended in Barcelona and the second cruise began in Barcelona, it gave us the day to explore the city. I tend to be a cautious person only taking small steps at a time. My only previous experience with a private tour while cruising was arranged by one of my experienced travel companions. She advised me that La Vacanza Travel was a good bet to provide a tour you could trust. I researched private tours in Barcelona and found La Vacanza Travel offered a city highlights and skip-the-line Park Guell tour. I took that giant leap and booked the tour for the 6 of us that were travelling together. Later, one of our couples had to cancel but La Vacanza Travel gave them a full refund. The tour was excellent. We saw all the sights as advertised. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we had a very pleasant experience. We were picked up at the pier and dropped off at the pier as promised. We could not have asked for a better time.
