''We would thoroughly recommend this tour of Barcelona. Our tour guide was fun and informative and spoke very good English. It was 4 hours and she took us to so many different areas of the city and told us so much. Barcelona is amazing and our guide too. Thank you so much''
''First off, La Sagrada Familia itself was absolutely beautiful and the tour was fantastic. Our guide was great, she was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and answered all of our questions. With her our experience was phenomenal. Just long enough. She took her time and explained all the spaces we visited and had great stories and inside information to bring the space to life. We really appreciate it''
''The best way to spend a day. The driver and the guide were on time in our hotel. The tour guide was very attentive and very knowledgeable, lovely. The tour was well organized and fun. The scenery you can see on your way to the top, where the Monastery is, is just too awesome. Our visit to Montserrat was the most memorable. If you go you will come out of the place feeling awed and renewed''
"Very nice way to start our trip in Barcelona. Very informative and interesting. We were 8 in our group and all of us learned so much about the origins of Barcelona, even our children learned and had fun. Our guide was fantastic and led us to some of the highlights of the old city. Definitely it was worth paying every penny"
