While the tour was pretty good and we were able to see a good deal of the city and hear about it's history; It was highly unacceptable that the tour guide left us, and at a separate time another group behind; we had to call the main office (placed on hold for 20 min.), take a cab to a meeting spot, and eventually reconnect with the tour guide. When we met up with her she was unapologetic and made excuses as to how she went looking for us, but could not find us. Maybe with a good tour guide the experience would have been great but not with the one we had; if you sign up for it, don't wear sandles and bring your walking shows, there is a lot of walking.

Deceiving

We purchased a tour in Spanish, which is our mother tongue, as the tour gave the option. Although we understand English perfectly we rather the tour was is the local language, which happened to be our mother tongue. When we get to the meeting point we are first asked as per of the group of we all understand English, to which we complained. What the guide did was simply repeat stuff in Spanish after he had said it isn’t English, making the whole group loose time and only giving half of the information he had given in English. For ease, we decided it was best to have the tour fully in English. Then the tour guide either knew very little about the places we looked that or was simply not interested. I kept googling information. He would not even mention the year or time during which things were built and given it was a tour through the historic gothic quarter, I believe this to be essential information. Thirdly, our tour included entrance fee to the cathedral. Given it was Holy Week we were not able to go in as there was a service. We returned on a later time that same day to gain entry. This is poor organization by the agency as they should have remove the cathedral from the tour information, or schedule it at a time when we can enter (it’s not like Holy Week and mass services happened unexpectedly). Afterwards, we went to Montjuic, which supposedly included the cable car, which we could not take for safety reasons due to heavy winds. There had been heavy winds all week and there was no disclaimer that this could happen. It wasn’t until various other people in the group complained that they offered a complementary brunch in Montjuic, which was terrible. We ended up buying our own coffee (as it was not peovided) and pastry from the same cafeteria where the brunch was serve. Lastly, our package included entry to the Spanish Town and return to the meeting point. Because we were the only people in our group going to the Spanish Town, we were left there, whilst the rest of the group continued and we had to make our way back at our own cost. This experience was less than enjoyable and I would appreciate a full refund.

This tour was in 3 parts. First an hour or so walking tour of the Gotic quarter which was fascinating and our guide pointed out many things that you would not otherwise notice. Next we got on a waiting comfortable bus and had a leisurely guided drive around the iexiample area leading down to the waterfront and still seeing so many points of interest. Thirdly up Montjuic for the cool cable car ride and tour of the fortress. We had a small break here as well. The views from up there are superb! At this point, you can go back to the starting point or get off at the bottom of Montjuic leaving the tour at the Spanish village. I really loved walking around inside seeing the different building styles and cultures from all around Spain. Carolyn was a friendly, knowledgeable and interesting guide - perfect for this tour! Would definitely recommend if you are short on time in Barcelona or have just arrived and want to get acquainted with the area.

If you have limited time and want to get the most of it, this tour is ok. But it would have been better if we were allowed to go down from the bus and take pictures at the Olympic Village. Visit to Gothic Quarter is a must. Tour guide did not do her job well.

The ride to the beach and our guide's pointing out the various architectures was cool. The Cable car ride and the view from there was very nice and the Olympic village was worth seeing. Then went to the Spanish Village which was basically like Epcot with all imitation facades.Then went to the Gothic Village which we had already seen in our travels. Seemed like at that point they were just trying to fill up the 4 hours.

Took this tour at the end of a cruise as a general city tour to get oriented and discover Barcelona. It was just what we wanted. Travelling with spouse and 2 friends, we found it informative, enjoyable and just right! Our guide was Marta who was instantly engaging, informative obviously knew and loved Barcelona. The cable car ride was spectacular! During the walking tour of the Gothic Quarter, Marta negotiated our way through crowed, busy areas. There was a fair/festival going on in front of the old cathedral, so Marta took the time to stop and explain certain things that were going on, e.g. a local band playing traditional Catalan music and spontaneous dancing by locals. Marta was very knowledgeable and answered questions very directly and succinctly. She moved things along. I commend her especially being able to lead the tour in the Gothic Quarter with the crowds, but making sure that we were/felt safe. We were in Barcelona the weekend of Oct 21-23 when there were lots of crowds demonstrating on behave of the Catalonian cause. I highly recommend this tour!
