The tour in itself was good. The guide we had, Vincent, made the experience a great and memorable one. He listened to our preferences, took time for questions and pictures, walked as fast or as slowly as we wanted and ESPECIALLY treated the two 14 year old girls as important participants and not as pests as have other tour guides. Barcelona sights are impressive and having a guide who makes them real, personal and “alive” is an extraordinary events. Thanks Vincent.
We had Ruben as our driver. He has good English as he used to live in San Francisco. He definitely likes to talk! Riding around in an A/C car was way better than riding the hop on hop off bus. However, he cannot go into the individual places and be a guide. This wasn't an issue as we got the audio guide at Sagrada Familia. He bought the tickets to Sagrada and Park Guell in advance and we reimbursed him. We also had time for lunch before we went into Sagada. We went walking down La Ramblas and the Gothic area. Best way to see some of the more popular attractions.
Our guide, Daniel, was excellent. We saw so much of the city in one day as well as the best Gaudi sites. Beautiful view from Mont Juc. Totally fun day. Daniel is friendly, professional and knowledgeable about all things Barcelona. Stopped for an awesome lunch too. Request Daniel if you book this tour.
