Really excellent tour, and our guide, Marta, was the best. She had a lot of interesting background information about the sites we visited and made the trip very educational and entertaining. We saw the outside of the Gaudi church and had a walking tour of Guell Park. We then drove up to Montserrat and had plenty of time to explore. Finally, we had a driving tour of various Barcelona neighborhoods and wrapped up the tour at the Gaudi church where some of us had tickets to go in (entry to the church was not included in the tour). Highly recommend this tour; tour operator and Viator communication and support prior to the tour was also excellent.

Marta, our Catalonian tour guide was excellent. She offered many insights into everyday life as well as superb knowledge of the sights we visited. Highly recommend.

Despite the foggy cold weather, our tour was excellent. What made the tour so good was the guide Elena. Her English was clear, understandable and knowledge of Barcelona was extensive. She paced the tour to our older age and also an 8 year old. The driver Enrique was careful, punctual and drove safely. I recommend that this tour be added to your itinerary. It is full of interesting information and sites.

We got to see so much of this wonderful city! Our guide, Erica, was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable and made the entire tour extremely fun and interesting from start to finish. Monserrat and Park Guell are not to be missed. The direct pickup was a great service. Wonderful tour. Highly recommend!

Whether you just arrived for a short vacation or have a day off the Cruise ship, this small group tour is a perfect introduction to the City and Monserrat. Simona, was able to keep us engaged as we stopped at key city sites (Sagrada Família, Parc Guell and La Pedrera) and she timed the visit to Monserrat perfectly so that we arrived in time to be enchanted by the boys choir and still have time for an afternoon meal or a visit to the art museum (excellent) at Monserrat. There is so much more to the city and we were pleased to have several more days to enjoy its Museums and a full tour of La Pedrera, the Sagrada Família, the Picasso Museum and more. But if I wanted a taste of/introduction to what there is to see in Barcelona and Catalonia, this is the way to do it.

We were picked up from the Cruise Port and taken to Monserrat first thing in the morning which was great because the line to get up the mountain was extremely long when we were leaving. Th guide told us that people wait in their cars for 1-2 hours when it is busy because a limited number of cars are allowed at the top of the mountain at any given time. So this was ideal. Our additional stops were also well planned and informative, then we were dropped off right at our accommodations. Very happy with this tour.

We were on a Viking Cruise but their similar tour was filled. Based on a good experience with Viator in Berlin we decided to take the Viator tour. The guide, Marta, spoke English with no accent. We were picked up from the port terminal on time in a Mercedes small bus. She was extremely knowledgeable and we went to Montserrat first and had enough time to hear the boys choir sing. The rest of the trip to see so much of Gaudi's works was perfect. I highly recommend this tour.It was well run and not rushed.

I highly recommend this tour. I always take a tour in a vacation spot I've never been to familiarize myself with the area, famous spots and to avoid the lines. The tour guide, Elena is truly fantastic! She spoke clearly, has lots of energy, polite, friendly, courteous and a joy to be around. We spent eight hours on a Sunday, July 29th on a mini-tour bus with a total of 13 tourists (not including bus driver and Elena). It was an exciting experience and I would do it all over again in a heart beat! Thank you!

Martha is a fantastic tour guide and very knowledgeable. We are in a small group of twelve in a comfortable van. The tour was very organized and highly recommended. It is a must to see tour, before we board the Crown Princess Cruise Ship.

Marta was the best guide we had on our entire trip. Very Knowledgeable, Patient, And just very friendly. Willing to answer questions and even take our pictures when asked. Both of these tour sights were awesome. With lots of great pictures and history. Had plenty of time to enjoy everything. We were picked up at our hotel and dropped off there as well. She would have dropped us off anywhere of our choice within a certain area but we chose our hotel. This was our first tour of an 18 night vacation. Sure wish all of our guides would have been this good. Thanks Marta
