    We found this tour to have too much wasted time for the price paid. Unfortunately for us there was a family that occupied alot of time taking their pictures and asking the guide to photograph them. We had a waste of 30 minutes for a coffee break . Lunch was not good- they ran out of vegetarian options and offered us ham. Nothing else! We wasted 25 minutes waiting for the family to meet the group. The guide had no control - so the rest of the group waited around doing nothing

    What an amazing experience. Our guide was Nuria and she was so lovely. As we wandered around the ancient city, she informed us about the different historical periods of old Barcelona - from Roman through Gothic times. After a perfectly-timed coffee break, we were picked up by a pre-arranged/pre-paid spacious SUV and taken on a tour of the Olympic area with her expert narration along the way. When we got to Sagrada Familia, we first walked around and she told us the story of Gaudi and Sagrada Familia. Then she walked us through the tourguide line, took us inside and we sat off to the side for a few minutes for a bit more explanation - then she encouraged us to just walk around and take in the beauty. It was an amazing way to experience it. After a lovely lunch, the SUV picked us up again for a trip to Park Guell and dropped us off at the top, we meandered slowly down the hill. One final ride to experience our last stop La Pedrera and her comments expanded upon the audio tour. So that's the mechanics of the tour. The best part was spending the day with someone familiar with the area who obviously loved her city. She tailored the tour to our interests and we all chatted throughout the day on everything from daily life in Barcelona to what's on the different Euro notes. The other best part is that EVERYTHING was included - I was a bit spooked by the price of the tour, but it included all admissions (including the skip-the-line upgrades), transportation, a morning snack, and lunch, along with Nuria's expert narration - it was money well spent. Make sure when you are shopping for tours you read what's actually included. Many of the tour operators make their costs appear to be low by only pricing what they're offering, you need to hand over Euros to the guide as soon as you get to the meeting spot to pay for all your admission costs.

    It was a great tour. Miguel was very knowledgable and very personable. The tour was at a perfect speed to see everything to our satisfaction. The breaks were done at the best times and sufficient to rest, eat, rejuvenate, and enjoy the scenery. I never felt rushed or that I wasn’t able to see what I wanted as completely as I liked. Well worth the day.

    This was our first visit to Barcelona. Miguel Suárez Pérez is a superb guide who provided, in a few hours on a Sunday, a very memorable experience. We will recommend his service to others.

    This was a great way to see the best sites of the city. If you have to choose any tour, choose this, it's worth every penny and the care to attention to customer satisfaction was exceptional. Our group included some elderly tourists, and they were assisted every step of the way. The guide was obviously well known and well regarded, and the stories, context, and experiences could not be replicated.

    Miguel, our guide was wonderful. Felt like got a great understanding of Barcelona. Skipping lines at major attractions key to doing so much.

    Seeing and being educated on the most beautiful scenery. The wonderful Gaudi creations explained by guide.

    Miguel Pérez did a wonderful job touring us today. We toured the Gothic Quarter, Montjuic, Park Güell, La Sagrada Familia and La Pedrera. He gave a good running commentary of what we were seeing, stopped into a Torrens shop, we stopped for coffee/soda and for a free range Ibericus ham lunch with wine/soda.
