After a lot of research, I decided to use BGB as our guide for two days in Barcelona. More specifically, I requested Sonia as our guide because of her experience and many positive reviews. If you want an expert with a kind and unpretentious personality, then Sonia is for you. She guided our family of six (kids ages 12, 15,... More

My son and I had a fantastic tour to the Dali museum and then the city of Gerona. Our guide Jessica was outstanding and very knowledgeable about both places we visited and was very helpful with some travel issues we had. Only suggestion for BGB would be to be sure the hotel pickup details are clear to travelers and pick... More

Dear Mary, We are really glad you enjoyed the tour with Jessica. The taxi is really comfortable and picks you up at the lobby of the hotel and takes you to Sants train station. Nevertheless, the driver should have entered the lobby and looked for you. Since your review we have insisted that they always do that and are also... More

Took the Gaudi Tour - Guide spoke ok english, but a bit hard so understand some times. Guide had ok knowledge, but newer feelt that we really got to the buttom of Gaudi's principals and why he chose this special kind of architecture. - All in all; average.

We took a day tour to Figures and Girona with an outstanding guide, Jessica Casanovas. There was only one other couple so we felt like it was a private tour. We were promptly met at the train station and began a very well organized and fascinating day of exploration to the Dali museum and the beautiful town of Girona. Jessica... More

We booked the Dali Museum Tour which is new. We were picked up from the hotel on time by a guide who accompanied us to the train station. She gave us all the instructions we needed to get to Figueres. The "Fast Train" ride was fantastic. Only an hour from Barcelona whereas other trains and buses take two plus hours.... More

Abel Roca is truly at the top when it comes to tour guides. He cares about the experience and memories you will gather from his tours. I was having problems walking and needed to rest often. He made sure that I was in a good place to sit until he and my group returned from extensive walking. I so appreciated... More
