We had a wonderful time! Our guide, Judit was informative, an excellent communicator, and very organized! We learned a lot about Barcelona and visited a lot of major sites in one day! She made sure that our group stayed together and answered all of our questions. When one of the group’s participants fell she made sure he was ok and kept checking on him. We have been on other La Vacanza Travel tours before and we’re really impressed with this excursion.

4 couples of our friends booked this tour and we feel very lucky to have had an incredible, guide: Rod (Rodrigo). He made the tour very interesting and informative and we were never bored. Rod was very good at making the history of Sagrada Familia, Park Guell and Casa Mila fun to hear about. He had the ability to keep us involved in the discussion of the venues and he was extremely knowledgeable. This was an excellent tour and the skip the line aspect allowed us to see more in a shorter time frame. This was a great tour.

The tour was pretty complete with lots of walking and a bus ride. The guide was passionate and interesting. The only disappointment was that the end of the half day tour was not at the same staring point and we needed to get back on our own 4 kl away from start,
