Experienced tour guide! Very pleasant and accommodating! Excellent English speaker!
Our Guide was Nuria - she was excellent! Her knowledge, communication skills and ability to improvise made the day a superb experience. She took us to all the must see locations and was able to handle our special requests, as well. I cannot say enough about this Guide. Request her - you won't be disappointed.
I would definitely recommend the tour as we only had 1.5 days in Barcelona! It was a very good overview of the city - will definitely stay longer next time in Barcelona!
Nice tour, nice guide... she did everything to make us happy... Thanks again...
This tour is fantastic and well worth the money. It is a private tour so it is extremely intimate and personalized. The tour provides an overview of the main highlights in Barcelona, and we were able to move through attractions as quickly or as slowly as we wanted. It was a good opportunity to make a mental flag for attractions we wanted to revisit in depth. We traveled in a private vehicle that was new and clean. Our tour guide, Hannes, was extremely kind and knowledgeable. He was able to show us many of the local places as we were passing through since that was one of my interests. He was extremely patient and made sure to make this tour about us. The booking process was extremely easy. The meet-up process was also easy. Our tour guide met us at our hotel and swept us off our feet! I highly recommend this tour.
