We had an amazing time with our tour guide Gloria! She was absolutely fabulous! It's so much better to be in small groups of 10-15 people. We can enjoy the city and each other too.
The tour was really dense and rich in history. I had lived in Barcelona for two years and didn't know everything Gloria told us.
I highly recommend this tour and make sure to do the full day!
Gracias Gloria!

This tour was outstanding! Our guide,Gloria, was knowledgeable, articulate, friendly, fun, competent, and helpful. The tour was an excellent overview of Barcelona that included the important Gaudí sites and sights. The tour was small, perhaps 10 or 12 people so there was opportunity to ask questions and get additional information. We rode in a small comfortable bus; our driver, Rafael, was excellent. We also walked through several parts of Barcelona’s old town. I enthusiastically recommend this tour!

This tour would not have been what it was if it was not for our tour guide Gloria. She truly took care of us, giving us a ton of knowledge, fun stories, keeping us cool by finding shaded areas to talk and even warning us of potential areas where pick pockets are tending to be. The Segrada Familia is a not to miss in Barcelona and without Gloria we would not have truly understood what we were looking at historically and symbolically. The walking tour was valuable and educational. We loved this tour. Please be aware that there are pickpockets in tourist areas in any big city. WEAR A CROSSBODY BAG. Get a pacsafe or travelon and you can relax and not worry. Enjoy your time and take this tour!

Hello, We always appreciate the fedback from our customers. I will pass on your praise to Gloria, she will be so happy. By the way, good advice about the dangers of pickpockets. It is a sad fact that big cities with lots of tourists attract pick pockets. Best regards, Robert

Our tour guide Sergio, was so knowledgeable and helpful. He made our experience so wonderful. He knew so much about the Sagrada Familia. and so much about Gaudi. He was such an expert, and he went above and beyond what her needed to do to help us. It was such a pleasure touring with Explore Catalunya, they are the highest quality of tours, and the friendliest people to deal with. Highly recommended..

Thank you Miguel and Explore Catalunya for a memorable day!!! We can't wait to return after 2026 to see the completion of La Sagrada Familia! 😎 Mérci. La pareja de Virginia.

The tour really was amazing and one of the main highlights of our Mother and Son trip to Barcelona. We did the full day Barcelona Tour. The tour was the perfect pace and covered so many interesting sights to see. I did allot of research on full day tours and this one was the best on price and also with how much was covered on the tour.
What really made the trip super special and truly unforgettable was our amazing tour guide Gloria. She was so passionate and filled with information. She had the perfect balance with delivering information and keeping us laughing during the whole day. She was the best tour guide I have ever had and I have booked tours all over the world. She made the whole group feel special, important and comfortable. She works hard at making sure each and every guest gets some one on one time with her. She takes the time to get to know everyone on the trip. By the end of the trip she felt like she was part of my family. I highly recommend Gloria and Explore Catalunya Tours. Thanks for a special and memorable day! It was a honor to be one of “Your People” Gloria.

From the minute we stepped foot into the Gothic quarter to Le Sagrada Familia, Gloria was attentive, personable and funny. We were a group of 17, with some very small children. Gloria knew everyone of our names and endearingly called us "My People". She made the tour enjoyable and interesting for adults and children alike. It was a very warm day and it was a busy tour, but Gloria took the time to stop and take family pictures for all. Excellent!

My husband and I took this full day tour in late May with Gloria and it was worth every penny. Our tour guide brought Barcelona to life for us with her entertaining stories and insight on the architectural history of Barcelona. Our tour followed a slightly different itinerary: it was Montjuic first, then La Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell and La Pedrera, where the tour ended (we had to find our way back to the hotel, no trip back was offered, as the tour description states). There was quite a bit of walking, almost 7 miles even though we did have a tour bus for part of the day. I do not remember a free Cava glass either. Gloria was sensitive to making us as comfortable as possible in spite of it being a sunny day and she has a warm, friendly personality. We were forewarned about the possibility of pickpockets and our group was affected twice; once walking down the street from La Sagrada Familia and another while sitting around a fountain in the Gothic Quarter.
Meeting place for the tour was the tour office, there was no hotel pickup. All in all, this was an excellent tour and I would recommend Explore Catalunya when you are looking for a local tour operator.
