Highly recommended. A must have in Barcelona!
, Jul 2021
It was a very complete tour. The guide was very attentive to all guests answering every possible question we did have. The walking visit to the gothic city and market was excellent. More than sufficient time to visit Sagrada Familia and to also have lunch. In sum: EXCELLENT!

This was truly an amazing tour and our tour guide Jordi had so much information and was so passionate when he was telling the history of everything. I recommend this full day tour to anybody visiting Barcelona as it covers the most important attractions. We loved it...and just to note we had children with us and its kids friendly, a 9 and a 5 year old :)
All things Gaudi were fabulous!

We had an excellent tour of Barcelona. We got great history on the city's attractions and the ride included in the tour made it easy to see a lot in 1/2 day. I would definitely recommend this tour if you're looking for history and with a splash of personality!

We were not able to get inside the Segrada Familia because it was closed. Would not have booked the tour had we known that. Very disappointing.
Gaudi and Barcelona at its best

The full-day tour with Sergio was fantastic! The meeting place was walking distance from our downtown hotel and was easy to find. Sergio welcomed us and provided details of the plan for the day. We started with an hour-long walk through the beautiful cobblestone streets of old Barcelona, gazing at the facades of churches and alleyways. So quaint and beautiful! We then hopped on the bus to go to Mt Montjuic, visited the Olympic stadium, MNAC, and have more than enough free time for coffee and awesome views! On to Sagrada Familia which is the highlight of the trip. Sergio told us about Gaudi, the church history, and a lot of architectural details that are not to be missed. Lunch is on you. Just take one of Sergio’s recommendations and you won’t be sorry. Afterwards, we bussed to Park Guell, where we felt we’re in Wonderland with another taste of Gaudi’s work. La Pedrera was our last stop, right in the middle of downtown, an easy walk back to our hotel. Thank you Sergio for a wonderful day!
Lovely morning tour of Barcelona.

It was easy to book online & there was a quick response to our phone call the morning of the tour when we had some difficulty getting there. Our tour guide was terrific - lots of information presented in an interesting way along with plenty of time to get to sights.

Truly the Best of Barcelona
, Feb 2020
This is one of the best tours that I have taken. Originally I was looking for a quick tour with access to the Sagrada Familia. However, what I actually received was much, much more. Our tour guide Rodrigo was fantastic! Very knowledgeable on the history, social climate, architecture and even fun facts and recommendations. He made the tour very enjoyable and well worth spending the long day. The starting point of the tour is very easy to find, which is not always the case with city tours. The vehicle that takes you to the different locations is clean, maintained and has AC. If you are looking for a tour of the best of Barcelona look no further this is it.
