Enrico was an amazing tour guide. Very knowledgeable, informative and fun. My wife and I took the full day tour which we have no regrets for doing we managed to see so much of Barcelona. Highly recommended!
Feliciano Dominguez was our guide and he was absolutely fabulous. Very knowledgeable, and so proud of his city which you always like to see in a guide. We were a fairly large group and he kept us all engaged and together. The tour also included other areas such as the Cathedral and historic sites, not just Sagrada Familia. He timed our tour of Sagrada Familia for the best time for the light coming through the stained glass windows and it was awesome. He pointed out many features that I would have missed had I gone by myself plus the lines to get in are along - even in November!. I had signed up for this half day tour but was sorry I didn't sign up for the full day tour since Feliciano was so good however, I didn't have the right shoes with me for walking so much and my feet hurt. But next time...
Great tour guide. This was well worth the money.
My first report was a 5 star and in detail, nothing has changed!! Mamie Bennett
Great tour, captured so much. GREAT tour guide!!! Highly recommend this tour in Barcelona. P.S. Make sure you see Park Guel, the Gothic area, Born and eat at El Quim in the Market!
Great tour with a great tour guide.I really had a great time there was enough time at each stop and skipping the lines was a bonus
An interesting, fun and educational tour of a beautiful city. Absolutely recommend for anyone visiting Barcelona. And hopefully your guide will be Feliciano Dominguez --- he is fantastic or as one of the other tour members commented to me, he's the real deal. A very good time.
Feliciano and Mickey were fantastic hosts! I was so impressed with everything we were able to cover in one day! Feliciano was so knowledgeable and answered all of my questions in depth. I wouuld highly recommend people do this tour and request Feliciano if at all possible. His insight and humour really made this tour the best!

The three of us in our group all loved our day trip. The time allocated for each of the activities were appropriate, not rushed. Since the group was small the tour guide, Felipe, had plenty of time to interact with the group which he did very professionally. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend this trip especially those who like Gaudi and his works.
Our tour guide, Veronica, was fantastic! She had very detailed knowledge of the various sights around Barcelona. I would definitely recommend this tour for those who are new , or want to get reacquainted with Barcelona
This tour was wonderful, especially the Sagrada Familia. We had friends who waited in line for hours to get into Sagrada Familia. I also enjoyed the Casa Mila. For anyone who hasn't been to Barcelona, seeing Gaudi's incredible architecture is a must.
This tour was spectacular, with the opportunity to see the most important buildings of Gaudi. The tour leader was outstanding. She was very knowledgable, easy to understand and interesting to talk to. We saw superb buildings all around Barcelona, a wonderful view from just outside the city, the gothic area is a must see followed by lunch in a restaurant recommended by the tour leader that was brilliant. In the afternoon we went to Guile Park which is quite demanding with regard to a long walk and a lot of steps but very much worth it. However, think carefully about this if you are not particularly fit and going in the hot weather. Altogether a memorable day.
This was one of the highlights of our trip! The tour was excellent. We hit all the right places. I was awestruck in the Familia. Our guide, Ju, was so informative and personable. We were tired by the end of the day, but it was so worthwhile.
Enrique was great! it is a very informative tour, and I highly recommend it.
The tour was great ! and the guide was great ! We learned a lot...........
This is worth the money! Veronica did an outstanding job taking us through history to understand the importance of all the architectural elements Barcelona had to offer. There was a great mix of riding in the bus and walking. Sagrada Familia was unbelievable!!! We would highly recommend this trip!!
Best Viator tour ! Ask for Gemma if you take this full day worthwhile tour as she is a fabulous guide. She is Full of energy and enthusiasm for her hometown. Glad we had a chance to spend one of our 2 days with her.
Absolutely terrific!!! We really enjoyed our guide who knew how much info to give and when to let go. Terrific way to explore Gaudi!! Highly recommend to save time and see A LOT.
Well organized tour. The guide was so very informative! Great experience, have seen places which wouldn't have seen without the guide. Highly recommended!
We found this tour really worthwhile. We were in Barcelona for just 3 days and did this tour on the second day, and it gave us an excellent overview of the city as well as in depth information about the various sites we visited. We did both the morning and afternoon tour - with a nice stop for lunch in the middle. Our guide was excellent.
A great tour with a lot of great information, skipping the line was nice too.
Fabulous experience with Anna -- she was a terrific guide! The Sagrada Familia is beautiful and so rich in history and splendor. Loved this! Would do it again. Highly recommend!
Excellent guide toni....well spoken, very friendly/helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Explained the sites in a way that was easy to follow. I am sure i would not have got as much from these sites without a guide to explain
Our tour included the Olympic Village, Sagrada Familia, and the old part of the city. Our guide was excellent - she paced the tour well, provided great insights on each location we visited, and answered all of our questions! I highly recommend this tour!
