A very enjoyable tour around...

01-Apr-2024

A very enjoyable tour around Park Guell yesterday under the guidance of Raul in excellent English. Great audio system so we could hear Raul no matter how far away we were. Not at all rushed. Very informative and amusing with humorous personal anecdotes.

22-Sep-2019

Did the half day trip from Barcelona to Girona with Julia Tours (left at 8am and back around 2:20pm). Bus was comfy and air conditioned. Left on time. Our tour guide was friendly and showed us around and we had a good amount of free time. Plus if you’re a GOT fan, you’ll get to see some spots from the show.

Our tour of Sagrada Familia...

22-Mar-2024

Our tour of Sagrada Familia was amazing! Olga was our guide and she was absolutely incredible!! She was extremely knowledgeable about the site and was so pleasant to listen to discuss all the details and history. Love learning about the ins and outs and the story behind every detail.

This was the only place...

11-Oct-2023

This was the only place I could find last-minute tickets to see Sagrada Familia. It was more expensive than the tickets directly from the basilica (which were sold out), but it included a guided tour. I opted to add the tower access in as well, which is about €15 more than just the guided tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate. They have to deal with a lot of other people in the area, and to still be able to communicate effectively is impressive. I can't remember the guides name, but she had blue hair, so definitely easy to keep track of in the crowd of thousands inside the basilica. I didn't deal with any disrespect or lack of professionalism, as other reviews have mentioned. Everyone I interacted with was very kind and took time to explain things. FYI, if you're afraid of heights or claustrophobic, the tower is not for the faint of heart!

29-Jul-2023

Una is absolutely the best tour guide ever! Knowledgeable. Energetic. And a delight to be around her. She kept everyone engaged and we all walked away with much more than La Sagrada Familia knowledge. We learned architecture, Gaudi history, and she pointed out things most would miss. Thank you, Una!

01-Aug-2023

We took the 30 person catamaran, and had a fantastic time. They stop the boat after about an hour and let the guests swim for half an hour, which is refreshing. There are no pool toys, as advertised, however. Remember to grab a life jacket to swim in the ocean. The boat needs more life jackets available on deck.

28-Oct-2023

The tour was good overall ! We visited the Park Guell first and then Sagrada Familia.In hindsight, I wish I had more time in the park and felt that was a bit rushed. I would like to have spent atleast another hour or two by myself but I also understand that in a tour, you have a limited time and things are as per the schedule. Since, Sagrada Familia was the second stop, I took my time to abroad the place and the museum so, Yay ! This tour is a great option for anyone looking to cover highlights of both places and offers what it promises. Be prepared for a big crowd regardless of any time of the year because these places are popular for a good reason and absolutely worth it too !
