Very pleased with this tour and our guide Germanic. He went out of his way to accommodate everyone’s special needs. He was a native of Barcelona and was able to impart his love of the city and it’s people. Very knowledgeable and personable.
Joan did a great job tailoring our tour to OUR interests. This well thought out tour told the intertwined story of Barcelona's mythology, history, and architecture. Joan's passion and enthusiasm for sharing his home city with us made for an excellent experience.
Fantastic your! Luis was a great guide and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the amount of time at each stop. The amount of time for the tour was just enough.
My 2 friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our partial day with our guide Gaspar!! He is incredibly knowledgeable and personable! We could not get enough of the information he was so happy to share about the beautiful city!
Mat was an incredible guide fitting lots into half a day. We would recommend taking the whole day tour!!!!
Tour of Sagrada Familia was very entertaining. I think it would improve the tour immensely, and add to the tour if the tour guide actually went into the Sagrada Familia with the group, and provided the narrative - versus the group having to use the ear plugs/iPod.
The tour guide was flexible and kind, wanting to share as much as possible about the fabulous city of Barcelona. We felt so fortunate to have Francisco guide us and then he also sent us recommendations for good restaurants after we asked him about his ideas. VERY nice young man!
