If you have limited time to spend in Barcelona this is an amazing tour that introduces you to many of the city’s highlights. Our guide, Gloria, was simply amazing. She connected with every member of the tour making them feel welcome and well cared for. She showed us the Cathedral, St Maria Del Mar, the Jewish Quarter, the Park, Montjuïc, Sagrada Família and Gaudi’s Casa Mila. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes, there is a lot to see and do on this tour! If you are able to request a guide we highly recommend Gloria!

Our tour guide, King, was an exceptional Guide to all of us as we walked the streets to Barcelona. My Family of 11 made up about half of the group. Rodrigo made sure we were all prepared for our tour. From guiding us to use the restrooms to avoiding pick pockets. He was certainly passionate and an expert in is trade craft. We took several tours on our trip to Europe and Rodrigo certainly made all the other guides pale in comparison. Thank you for taking your time to get to know each of us and making us all feel special.

My wife and I did the best of Barcelona full day tour 7/13/19. Our guide whose name escapes me was excellent. We started off with 11/2 hour walking tour of the gothic quarter. Visited la Sagrada Família,Montjuic mountain with lovely views, casa mila, park guell, la Pedrera, passed the Olympic stadium, plaza espana and so much more. It was a long tiring day and well worth it. Saw and learned a lot.

My family and I were in Barcelona a day prior to our cruise and took this tour to see some of the city and learn some of its history. Our guide, Sergio, was so knowledgeable; and you could see he really loves his city and is so passionate about its past. We saw so much in the short time we had and learned a lot about Gaudi and Barcelona.
Sergio kept us informed about everything we were seeing as we walked through the narrow passages of the Gothic and Jewish districts, the Cathedral, and St. Maria del Mar Church. We then boarded a small bus that brought us up to the National Art Museum of Catalonia to see the panorama of the city below and take some pictures. Sergio even offered to take pictures of our whole family (all ten of us). Afterwards we were transported back to the city and to Sagrada Familia. Our guide explained Gaudi's masterpiece beautifully. It is quite something to behold. Every inch of the place tells a story, and we would have never known that without having taken the tour. After we completed our tour seeing the inside of Sagrada Familia, Sergio even recommended some places for lunch in the area.
I highly recommend this half-day tour. One tip: wear comfortable shoes.
We can't wait to go back to Barcelona for an extended stay.
