Mirko our tour guide comes highly recommend: Must Read
The tour was the total package. Mirko from Caracas Venezuela comes highly recommended as he has travelled to 56 countries and has his own Youtube traveling channel. Also, he has a good sense of humor.

Barcelona Combo: Highlights Barcelona and Montserrat Sightseeing Tour
This was wonderful. Montserrat is not to be missed! The only problem was that this is actually 2 different tours put together so you have to go to the office twice at different times. They should combine it!

Barcelona Old Town, The Gothic Quarter Private Tour with Hotel Pickup
We had a fabulous time on this tour and saw so much that we would not have discovered on our own. The Tour guide (Jorge) was amazing-informative, interesting and incredibly gracious. My only regret is that I did not book the tour earlier in our trip because I would have used Jorge and his company for all our other visits to tourist attractions. Absolutely fabulous.

Barcelona Combo: Highlights Barcelona and Montserrat Sightseeing Tour
We only had a limited time to spend in Barcelona and enjoyed this tour - a good way for us to see part of the city that we might not have found on our own. We toured on a a Sunday when many places are closed and people might want to take that into account when scheduling. Aaron, our tour guide, knew the area and was also also very helpful with restaurant recommendations.

Had an amazing tour and tour guide, JC! We really enjoyed having a private tour because we got a lot more flexibility in the the tour. We had time to stop for coffee and food during the tour. We also booked a last minute visit to Monserrat which was amazing! JC was super flexible because we could not do the full day tour for Montserrat but did a modified version for 4 hours. He picked us up from our breakfast spot and dropped us off at our AirBNB. He really tailored the experience to our schedule. Definitely use JC tours Barcelona if you can!
