Very knowledgeable and interesting tour guide who interacted with everyone and kept the pace of the tour just right. Small group size was ideal and we were able to see parts of Barcelona, and find out their history, that without a guide we would never have discovered.

This was such a great tour! It really is the best of the city. It’s also so easy being transported around everywhere. Our tour guide Rod was the best, he made the tour so interesting and fun and made time to chat to everyone. Would highly recommend.

Gloria was our guide and she was very well informed. She was very passionate about the history of Barcelona and Sagrada Familia. Loved the city tour and the walk through old Barcelona. Sagrada Familia was the highlight. There is so much history and so much to take in that one could never remember all that is covered in this tour. Gloria's love for the city and history really made an impact on me. We signed up for the full day tour but I recommend doing only a half day, way to much information in a day for me.

Book this experience! My family of 4- with 2 teenagers (15 &12) really appreciated the energy, thoughtfulness & hospitality of Miquel & his wife. This was not as expected… it’s BETTER!! (Heading to someone’s house, you might think…Really?? I searched & saw other cooking offerings, but due to dates/ times- we booked this… Super glad we did!)

Truly the experience is BETTER than EXPECTED—- You’ll immerse yourself into a local tradition of cooking with family- each contributing to the meal & meet new friends, etc. Miguel has each person doing a cooking task- then you take a break, enjoy the Sangria & RELAX. Then you’re up & cooking some more- then feasting… We LOVED IT!!!
Plan for 4 hrs.— prepping all the fresh ingredients takes time but it’s REALLY really WORTH it!!!
🙏 Miguel once again!

It was a great day which started at the Gothic Quarter a few blocks from their Office…our guide Sergi was knowledgeable, friendly, funny and made the experience much more enjoyable than walking around Barcelona by ourselves… he even had a notebook with pictures to explain the history Spain etc…La Sagrada Familia was by far my favorite! And it was great to have the tickets in advance, cause the lines were huge! I really recommend this tour!

The tour was incredible! Gloria was incredibly knowledgeable in everything she showed us and gave us very in depth historical and architectural background for the locations. She knew the best spots to take family photos and took all the stress out of the visit. Marcelo drove us from place to place and clearly knew where he was going and what he was doing. It was a very well done tour. There was quite a bit of walking around, but everything was worth it!

This was a fantastic way to see many of Barcelona's main attractions. Sergio was a great tour guide who went out of his way to make sure the group had a great time. The priority tickets really helped make the full day tour stress free too.

We highly recommend the full day tour as part of your visit to Barcelona. Our guide Rod had comprehensive and engaging information on history, the arts and sites that made our visit to Barcelona complete. The full day tour was very comprehensive and appropriate for all ages and knowledge of Spanish culture.
