Reviews

Just a enjoyed a few days in this lovely city. We wanted to go see Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia but the tickets were all booked out but luckily Barcelona Guide Bureau rescued us. The tour included the different sites but also had time to have a lovely lunch in Pablo Espaniol.

Sonia was an amazing guide, a wealth of knowledge! We very much enjoyed our time with her. I feel like I learned so much about Barcelona's culture and history that would not have been provided if I tried to tour myself.

Jessica was an excellent guide and knew so much about Dali. I was also on the extended Girona tour. I liked taking the bullet train to both of these points of interests which saved a lot of time.

Take the time out from busy Barcelona to experience Montserrat for the day. Our guide was the very knowledgeable and engaging Beatrice. She has a close connection to Montserrat and we really enjoyed our tour with her.
