My husband and I stayed at this great hotel on September 19th and 20th. Staff is great, hotel is well appointed, and breakfast is superb. We highly recommend this hotel for anyone planning to visit Barcelona. You will love the location and VERY helpful staff. Pay and Jay Krouse

I was just researching my Barcelona trip to give tips to a friend and realized I never wrote a review for Hola! Barcelona. My mom and I used them for a private day trip and were very impressed with both the responsiveness of the company in the planning stage and by our wonderful guide. He was a native of Barcelona and was extremely pleasant and informative. We felt very safe as he negotiated the insane Barcelona streets (I would never attempt to drive in that city). As it was a private tour, our guide was able to switch up the schedule to try and get us to the main attractions at a less-busy time of day. He was also very accomodating and took us to a sporting goods store near Sagrada Familia so that we could get my dad an FC Barca cap. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and would definitely use them again!

My wife and I traveled to Barcelona.We booked a tour with Hola! Barcelona Tours. Our guide Ellie was excellent and her english was very good. She took us to so many amazing places .We spent a few hours touring in a confortable minibus and then walked in the Gothic part of town with her.It was a perfect way to know Barcelona and learn about the history as well.She recommended a great restaurant also.

This is a mixed review. First the good part. We had Paloma as our guide. She was very knowledgeable and had lots of energy.  We had requested Ellie (she had previously been our guide) but when Ellie was unavailable at the last moment, Paloma did an impressive job filling in. Within minutes Paloma suggested a panoramic tour and warned us that since it was Easter we might not be able to get in to Familia Sagrada and Parc Guell. We told her those were the only items we had specified and she agreed to try to get tickets. She was partially successful.  She also mentioned a few items she had been told we wanted but which we did NOT ask for. We visited Familia Sagrada where she explained what we were seeing on both the inside and outside. It was a very brief stop.  We then drove to Parc Guell where she took us to the areas which we could see without a ticket. After that we took a panoramic drive throughout the city. The tour lasted 4 hours. We were a group of 4 staying at 2 different hotels and they picked us up at each of our hotels. Now the bad part -- I had MANY emails with Grace.  I asked her about going up one of the towers at Familia Sagrada. She explained that it was possible. I told her that we wanted to go up in the one where we could ride the elevator both up and down. I also told her that we wanted to go to Parc Guell. She said that she would secure the tickets early for both of these sites. She even asked if we would qualify for any discounts such as seniors. I gave her the information she needed and paid the required deposit. As it got closer to our departure date, I sent an email confirming everything. At that time I put in my email that it was my understanding that she was securing our tickets. I got a reply back confirming the price of the tour but no mention of the tickets. I also had a couple of more emails from her where she evaded my question about the tickets. Paloma said that we were lucky to get tickets without reservations. As for the tower tickets which we specifically requested, there were no tickets available that would fit into our scheduled tour. When we got to Parc Guell, there were no tickets available during the time of our tour. So not only did Grace not purchase the tickets for us as she had said, we were unable to do what we had wanted to do on our tour because of this. We also had requested Ellie to be our guide and she was confirmed. Unfortunately, less than 48 hours before our tour (when it was too late to cancel without losing our deposit) we were told that Ellie would not be our guide because of an illness. Recap -- Paloma did her best but we were disappointed that we were unable to do the only two activities we requested. Paloma gave a good tour — just not the tour we requested. We expressed our dissatisfaction to Grace but received nothing in response. She has not reliably replied to my emails, even ignoring some of them. She could have handled this mishap much more professionally than she did.

We traveled from Dubai on a mediteranean cruise and used Hola Barcelona Tours for touring around Barcelona for half a day on 2nd December. Grace helped us complete the booking online and we paid a small deposit to confirm the same. On the day of our tour, our Driver-Guide Mr. Louis was waiting right outside the cruise terminal, on time and as promised it was a wonderful new Benz car in which he drove us! He seemed well informed about the places and drove through with patience, also explaining to us simultaneously about the sites. He allowed us to take our own time at the different sites and was always eager to help! He had to rush once the four hours were completed though!! We strongly recommend their team!
