This was an excellent tour! Our guide, Miguel, was awesome! The bus was very comfortable, Miguel knew is history, was energetic, and fun! We saw so much of Barcelona and had a good amount of time at the best locations of the tour. I would recommend this tour! There is so much to see in Barcelona, this gave a great overview and we were able to get into sites with no lines during a very busy travel season. We thoroughly enjoyed our time!

We are very happy with this outcome. I think you should book this. I did all the research (believe me I am very OCD) and finally decided for this tour and we don’t regret it. Our guide was Eduardo or Edward. He was very nice and full of knowledge. His English was great and he knew what he was talking about. My boyfriend and I booked the whole day tour but if you are tight the half morning tour will suffice. The tour is VERYY ORGANIZED! A lot ( a looott) of walking and it is kid/family oriented. Small group of 12. You meet at 8:30 and walk around Ramblas, Gothic Quarter and the Cathedral. You also visit Mount Montjuic (you arrive in a private air conditioned bus and get a tour around the city!!) and finally the church (you arrive also in the private bus). The waiting time to get inside the church is zero to none. First part ends around 12 and if you book the second part it will start around 1:30 and end by 4:00. The second part is Park Guell and La Pedreda (which has its own pre-recorded tour). At the end Eduardo suggested places for us to go during the rest of our trip which was really nice. Book it. You won’t regret it.

This excursion sounded so inviting. It was a disaster. We left 30 minutes late. We were told we would have croissants and cafe au lait in France - this didn't happen. We went to Andorra - little there outside of duty free shopping. We did enjoy the Dali sculputure, the bridge and the street lights in the ground to help pedestrians who text and walk at the same time. Other than that, not much there - the restaurant we were guided to was not open. Did I mention that we were in the last row of a bus and you couldn't see anything that was highlighted by the tour guide because the windows didn't even reach our seats and our eye level was above the windows? There should be no tickets sold for that back row of seats. That was about an 8 hour torture of the 12 hour excursion. Then on to Ax les Thermes, France - a short stop with no time to enjoy the hot springs, hike, or anything. We had time to eat, walk through a souvenir shop (the only one in the village) and then head back to the bus. Back to Spain and a short stop for a beverage. Then on to a medieval village, Baga, a short walk around - not much to do there as the town was closed up for siesta time. The guide was somewhat informative but he kept the mic so close to his mouth that we were blasted with feedback through much of his presentation. It was very irritating. I would not recommend this tour to anyone. And would not do another tour from this company.

Hello,
I am sorry that you had such a bad time on this tour. This excursion is actually one of our most popular tours, and the vast majority of our customers have a great time. It seems as if the amount of travelling to each destination made it an unpleasant day for you. I am very sorry about that, but it's impossible to visit three countries in one day without it.
Best regards,
Robert

We were looking forward for this tour and were not disappointed. Our tour guide Sergio was great . Very knowledgeable about GOT and very helpful not just about the tour but also everything about Barcelona. Lots of good food.
