    We had a great tour with Sergio as our guide. He was very knowledgeable in explaining the history of Barcelona. He was always willing to help out and really made it a unique experience. The walking portion went by so quickly, and it was amazing to see how much Barcelona has transformed over the decades. Sagrada Familia was majestic! Sergio was a great facilitator of this experience and ensured that we took In every detail. He described Gaudi’s work in a way that it has never been described before. We really enjoyed the tour and the pride that Sergio encapsulated during the day.

    Obviously the chapel is the highlight. We took the half-day tour and it was just enough history and time and sights without being pedantic. The city is beautiful and this tour gave us insights we otherwise wouldn’t have received.

    Great Barcelona day tour with Sergi
    Ephraim_S
    , Jul 2022
    Sergi provided us with a great tour of Barcelona's Gothic and Jewish Quarter, Gaudi's masterpieces Segarata Familia, Guell Gardens and the LA Pedrata house. He is among the best tiur guides I've ever had, and I've had many over the years all over the globe. Sergi is fluent in English, knows the area's history thoroughly and is extremely personable. 5 stars are insufficient to rate him properly.

    Edwardo, tour guide was awesome but need to set parameters that if you are more than 5-10 minutes you will be left. The exact address of each location should be provided then late returners can take a taxi and meet us at the next destination.
    icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
    Hello, Thank you for the review and suggestions, but I don't think it is at all fair to expect all the other people on a tour to have to wait for people who do not arrive at the meeting points on time. We always wait at least 5 minutes, but when all the group are standing around waiting, it is simply not right to make them wait any longer. The suggestion of giving addresses of the attractions would also be unfair. Imagine having to wait at a meeting point, then leaving late, and when you arrive at the next meeting point having to wait again while the guide tried to find the people coming in a taxi. We always stress the importance of being on time at all the meeting points as we have so much to see and do. Regards, Robert

    Jude was a great guide that kept the information flowing and she is native to Barcelona. It was very informative and fast moving. We took the full day and was well worth it. The reason for only four stars and not 5 was because we were dropped off at the last site and my equípeme to hear was not work and no one there would help. So it was self guided. Otherwise it was very nice.
    icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
    Hello, I am sorry that you felt we just dropped you off. We leave you here so you can spend as long as you want exploring La Pedrera. It's the last stop of the day, and this way nobody has to leave when the guide does. I am sorry if you felt a bit alone. Best regards, Robert

    Terrible experience
    Mohamed_D
    , Jun 2022
    Terrible experience :( I paid 123$ and when I arrived they asked me to pay another 80$. The guide was okey, but because it’s ts from Spain, its English was terrible and very difficult to understand what he said. And the last activity (Casa Milo la pedrera) he did not explain anything, he take us there and stay just 3minutes and told us to do the tour by our selfs. Overall: it was a bad experience and very expensive.
    icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
    Hello, I am sorry but your review is quite misleading. We very clearly explain in the tour description that the entrance tickets are not included in the price. The reason for this is because we have had some customers in the past who have already been inside some of the attractions we visit and so we give them the chance to exclude some parts of this tour. We are not trying to trick anybody, or charge them again. The amount stated her is also wrong. Depending on the exchange rate of the day, the initial payment is about 90 US$, and the entrance fees are about 60 US$. In the last stop of the day, La Pedrera, the guide goes inside with everybody, gives a detailed tour, but then leaves everybody to spend as much time as they want in the house. The tour ends here, but we don't see the need to make everybody leave when we do. I think it's nice that we let people stay as long as they want. Regards, Robert

    This tour turned out to be better then I expected. My 16 year old daughter and I did half day tour. Well organised, fully prepared, Rod, our guide, was an excellent story teller. Also, Rod was paying attention to older people in our group, trying to make this experience nice and smooth. Lots of interesting information, but not overloaded. Perfect, thank you very much!
