“A MUST!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

If you a planning a trip to Spain, you have spent too much money if you go with a company other than Barcelona Great Tours. Frank was our guide and driver and he was extremely knowledgeable about Barcelona. He picked us up at our hotel and drove us, in a Mercedes Benz sedan, to all the tourist sites and when the tour was over, he took us where ever we wanted to go. This was an AWESOME tour!!!

“A Great Overview”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We arrived in Barcelona after flying all night and wanted to maximize our time while waiting for our hotel room to be ready. My husband, myself and two sons were entirely pleased with the tour. Our driver/tour guide, Carlos, picked us up at the airport on time. He was pleasant, friendly, knowledgeable of the city and spoke very good English. We felt relaxed knowing we were in good hands. Carlos took us to all the major sights in the city. He gave us a narrated background of the sights and told us about some highlights in the city. We got the "lay of the land" and had a better idea what we wanted to see in depth later. At various places we were able to get out anywhere from 5 minutes to 35 minutes and tour while Carlos waited with our luggage in the van. This tour company not only had a very competitive price but they were very responsive on short notice. They were able to accommodate us when other larger companies told me "no". A deposit via pay pal is all that is needed to make a reservation. The rest of the fee is due at the end of the tour. This was truly one of the smartest things we did on our Barcelona trip!

“Great Barcelona Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We reviewed a few barcelona tour companies, and this company had the most competitive prices, and great reviews, and they deserve it.
Our guide Carlos, was waiting for us as we arrived at the airport, he was nicely dressed in a suit, looked very professional, and the tour vehicle was new and clean.
This was to be a half day tour, for my wife and myself, and Carlos did a great job. He is an excellent driver, and gave us a lot of great information about Barcelona. Took us to all the great sites, explaining everything, we were never rushed, and dropped us off at our hotel after the tour.
We paid a deposit initially when we booked it, and the balance due at the end of the tour, just as agreed upon.
This was a great introduction to Barcelona, would highly recommend this company to everyone, we were very please.
Thanks Carlos.

“Excellent Private Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

We did a full day tour of Barcelona prior a cruise with this professional company and I recommend this tour company to everybody. They were on time at the airport waiting for us even after our fligth arrived one hour earlier, our driver-guide told us they are tracking the fligths always, then no worries if the flight is not on time. This was our first visit to Barcelona and the tour was just perfect, so informative. Thanks to Juan, he also arranged a tapas lunch at "Cerveceria Catalana" and I have to say food was delicious. Also we used Barcelona Great Tours for the transfer from de port to the airport, it was fast, cheap and so comfortable. Thank you for everything!

“Perfect Tour, Lovely Guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

My family and I are just arriving from Barcelona and I would like to write a few words about this fantastic tour company. We contacted Barcelona Great Tours one month ago and everything was easy and quick since the beginning.
Once at the airport our driver-guide was waiting for us and we enjoyed a terrific tour of the city, he was very knowledgable and informative, taking care of our luggage all time and making several stops at places like Sagrada Familia and Park Guell. I have to say I recommend this company to everybody.
