Jordi was our tour guide and her was very friendly and knowledgeable. He gave us choices which was nice so we were able to see maximum based on our likes. We got to see so much and thanks to him, we were always learning something. We were picked up from our apartment but ended the trip at Sagrada Familia, as we paid extra for tickets with audio. Jordi also have us good tips on how to get the best pictures. In between we saw Montserrat, Olympic Stadium area, Park Guell, and more.

Barcelona and Montserrat tour 11/19/2019

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.

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!

Perfect Way to Experience the Best of Barcelona

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.

a great excursion and drop off from our cruise
Navigate770566
, Nov 2019
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.
