  • The tour is very interesting and you get to know facts about Barcelona that you would not otherwise. It is not hard to walk the 2 hours and you get to see the most important buildings from Barcelona. There was only one issue that we booked the spanish tour and when we got there it was the english tour. Luckily nobody else showed up and the guide was able to speak spanish.

  • EXCELLENT tour guide - we had three great tours with Viator on this trip and I've decided to use them from now on as I think they must really vet their tour companies. Our guide was easy to talk to, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the architecture and personal stories behind the buildings we were looking at. D
