My husband, daughter and I went to Barcelona for a ten day trip right before Thanksgiving. Fortunately, I found Manuel online to take the three of us privately to Montserrat for an all day guided 8 hour tour as Montserrat has been on my bucket list for years. What a great decision! Manuel picked us up at our hotel and we had a wonderful time and day with him. He talks to you the whole hour car ride there so you know what you are seeing. We never would have had the full experience at Montserrat without him as we prayed at the Black Madonna, saw the Boys Choir, toured the property and the Art Museum while Manuel patiently explained and guided us along our journey. He is super knowledgeable and speaks English perfectly. He gave three Texans a wonderful day we will remember forever! He is the best! I can not recommend him highly enough!

My husband and I just completed our 4day Barcelona tour with this highlighted tribute to Gaudí. I wish better words than thanks to express our appreciation for our sweetest and brilliant tour guide Tanya with BGB who patiently educated us so well and greatly opened our eyes on Sunday January 19. Now that we are back in America, we see all buildings in a new light. The same credit should also go to all other professionally guided tours on this trip and Gate1 who always set up everything Impeccably since we started traveling through them years ago. We are happily spoiled by them during all our relaxed times throughout Ireland, Italy, Greece, Prague, Barcelona. On every trip we not only found ourselves greatly immersed in various cultures but also making new friends and enjoying company with good people from all over the world. We look forward to many more in the near future.

We are a New York family and travel often. Manuel met us at airport. Immediately connected with everyone. Very timely and flexible. He didn’t just drive us to the hotel but gave us a free tour of this amazing city. Great stories and extremely informative. We then spent the day walking around Girona with him. It was as if we were hanging with a very educated family friend!! An absolute must see but only with Manuel!! He fit right into our family dynamic and there was absolutely no way we would have enjoyed the day without Manuel as the lead. Best investment. We were all sad to say good bye to him as he helped create memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you Manuel !!!!

We booked an auto tour with Barcelona Auto tours for May 2020, after reading the amazing experiences from many.
With Covid, air and hotels were all canceled and closed. We informed Barcelona auto tours, two months prior to our tour, it looked like we would not be able to do the tour. After our hotel and air were officially canceled, we informed Barcelona Auto Tours that we would not be able to do the tour and asked for our 1/3 deposit back.
We paid Arthur through Pay Pal and have never been able to contact him, or Barcelona Auto Tours, through email, phone etc. In fact, our dealings were always with Barcelona Auto Tours and we do not know who Arthur is. Pay Pal has refused to give us our money back which is around 400 US. The hotel where their offices ARE located, HAS TOLD US THE OFFICE IS CLOSED DUE TO COVID. If anyone knows how to get our money back, it would be appreciated. Our hotel and airline have both give our money back, hoping we will travel again with them. This certainly has left a bad taste in our mouths.

I contacted Barcelona Car Tours several months before our trip to Barcelona. I received a reply within 24 hours from Arthur, who was very forthcoming about the contents of a one day guided tour of Barcelona, as well as which activities would be included.I had also contacted several other private tour providers from Tripadvisor, only 2 of 5 even bothered to respond within a week!
Manuel, our guide, was downright fabulous. It is clear he dearly loves the city of Barcelona and has a great knowledge from an historical, cultural, political, and current culture of this beautiful city. He is also just a very enthusiastic and bubbly person which lent so much to our day.
He texted us early to confirm pickup time, and was waiting for us right on time. His van was clean and had plenty of windows to view the city. He asked us a lot of questions in order to tailor the tour to our interests, and always checked to see that we were happy with his suggestions for the itinerary on the fly. He left us right at the fast entrance to Sagrada Familia and was there at the other end to pick us up. He let us know how and where to enter and what to expect (security, ways to see different areas of the interior, different angles to get the perfect photo of the stained glass colors pouring into the space). The same with the Palau, as to pick up and drop off and what to expect. He stopped for lunch for us and helped us order the perfect pinxtos from an excellent restaurant. (Lunch is not included in the price) I would recommend BarcelonaCarTours 100% - the perfect introduction to the city of Barcelona. And Manuel is priceless.

The car service with Manuel was fantastic! This was our 1st time in Barcelona and wanted to see the town, but in a private setting. We went to the gothic area which was fascinating, and rich with history. Then we had a great local lunch and sat outside. Manuel suggested a few things off the menu-yum!

He also pointed out a few areas that would worth coming back to see, depending how long we were in the area. Everything was at our own pace and he was able to answer all of our questions.

Plus he picked us up in a clean Mercedes suv - so plenty of leg room.

The highlight would have definitely been the vineyard tour. Manuel has everything set up including a special wine sampling with ham. It was very memorable.

I would highly recommend if you’re looking to ride around the area in privacy and not be clumped up with a crowd of people.

I spent 2 wonderful days touring with Manuel. Day one was around Barcelona the second day we went to Girona. Though these tours are expensive I felt they were well worth it. Manuel tailored the tour to suit my interests and abilities, getting me to places I would have found impossible by myself. He even found restaurants with good food options at reasonable prices. These tours are not stock standard, I was able to go to places I wanted to see and we linked in with tours of some venues. I was dropped off and picked up at the door which I appreciated. In Girona where walking the steep streets was a challenge Manuel helped me to get to places I would not have attempted alone. Manuel is very knowledgeable about all things Barcelona, he is easy to get along with and I felt comfortable in his company as a solo lady. I thoroughly recommend his tours.

Barcelona CarTours was recommended to us by a close friend. We are so glad we hired them for the day. Manual was the best. It was awesome having the personal attention from someone so knowledgeable and passionate about his city. Having the entrance tickets and appointments made to view specific sites eliminated our stress and maximized our time to view such exceptional sites. The things were learned would never have been shared on a canned tour for multiple people. We traveled on our time schedule for the most part - stay longer or leave to the next sooner. He even had the perfect restaurant suggestion and helped us order what ended up being the best meal we had in our three week holiday. He’s a safe driver and very professional. Our short time in Barcelona ended up being a highlight of our trip from Lisbon to Paris and that’s truly thanks to Manual. He’s even a great photographer. Susan Torri and Wayne

We came off of a Trans-Atlantic cruise in Barcelona with just a day and half to spend in Barcelona before flying out. We wanted to see the city and make the most of our time there. In the past we generally have done the bus tour options either via the cruise line or some local operator. While reviewing our options, I found Barcelona Car Tours and we are so happy that we chose them to assist us in Barcelona!
Manuel, our guide was amazing! He was prompt to pick us up at our hotel and would take us anywhere that we wanted to go.
While we got to see all of the normal tourist spots in Barcelona, it was helpful not having to wait in any lines and not having to deal with the chaos of a large group. Manuel dropped us off where we needed to be and picked us up promptly when we were finished our guided tours. He provided a wealth of information about the city and the attractions that we were seeing.
We specifically wanted to go to a restaurant that would reflect the culture of the city, that was not a tourist trap. Manuel not only found us a spot, but also assisted us in ordering those items that we would be most pleased with. The personal attention was greatly appreciated and helped to make for a truly special visit to the city.
In addition to our tour, we used Barcelona Car Tours to transfer us from the hotel to the airport for our morning flight. Again, Manuel was prompt and we were to the airport in perfect timing.
We love Barcelona and would certainly recommend Barcelona Car Tours to others who are looking to make the most of their Barcelona visit.

Barcelona Car Tours is extremely flexible to ensure you have nothing but a memorable experience. Our driver, Juan, is young, enthusiastic and accommodating who was prompt in picking my husband and I up from a cruise ship. With some minor mobility issues, Juan ensured we were accessible to all of the attractions. We customized our tour to include the Palais de Musica, Monteserrat which was fabulous, enjoying a local parade, exploring several of Gaudi's structures and having an overview of Barcelona. Although this was our third trip to Barcelona, Juan offered some interesting facts and his perspective of current day Barcelona. Whenever we return to Barcelona, we will use Barcelona Car Tours. They are the best way to enjoy Barcelona!!!!
