I was in Barcelona in June and signed up for The Sagra deFamilia tour and The Dali Museum tour with The Barcelona Guide Bureau. They are the most knowledgeable and organized tour company that I have ever seen. I highly recommend them if you are traveling to Barcelona.

The tour I joined is a relatively small size one that makes it feel like a semi-private tour. The tour guide is good and fluent in English (comparatively better than the other tour guides I received in tours with another companies). If you would love to find out a bit more about Picasso and the Old Town in Barcelona, this... More

The Barcelona All Highlights tour combines the Sagrada Familia church in the morning and Mont Juic/Panorama tour in the afternoon. I highly recommend this tour although it may not be for everyone, as I explain below. Sagrada Familia is an amazing must-see sight, and the tour gives you fast track entry, a lively and knowledgable guide, and takes care of... More

This tour gives a very good overview of Gaudi's influence on Barcelona. We especially liked seeing the Sagrada Familia both inside and outside and hearing the history of how it evolved and still is evolving. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us interesting tidbits about Gaudi's life. We highly recommend this tour for anyone planning to visit Barcelona.

Our guide was not only knowledgable , but spoke clearly and slowly . She was also very friendly. The tour allowed for some free time at the stops. The Bus driver was also very friendly as well as having a very clean coach !

We took this tour on June 16th and Jessica was our guide. It was recommended to us by our hotel. It was an early start and we were picked up from our hotel and taken to the Barcelona train station to meet the rest of the group. There was a slight hiccup in finding them - we were given what...

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
