Worthwhile trip. Simona is a gem.
, Dec 2019
Third time in Barcelona but first time to do a guided tour of these tourist spots. It was amazing! The trip was fully packed. Our tour guide Simona was like a walking and talking encyclopedia. She never stopped talking actually. And we learned a lot from her. Her passion inspired us to understand why Gaudi was a brilliant man ahead of his time.

Our Guide Simone was very knowledgeable about Barcelona and Monserrat. In park Guel We walked around while she was taking care of some of our tour that had a hard time getting around but when we went back with her she opened our eyes to things we didn’t know to look for before. There were protests in Barcelona So we chose not to go inside to see La sagrada familia. Simone did take the people that wanted to go. Monserrat was amazing. We did not know what to expect but it was magnificent.
Full day great overview of Barcelona and Montserrat

This was an excellent tour, Marta was very knowledgeable about the history of the city and surrounding area. The small group size of 13 as definitely a bonus. Hotel pick up and drop off was a big plus as well.
Drop off time needs improvement!
, Sep 2019
Overall the tour was informative however, at the ending of the tour the guide was very unconcerned about getting the cruisers back to port on time. We were literally dropped off at the cruise port 2 minutes before the ports closing time. When we were entering the port security was already dismantling everything! Next time I’ll stick to excursions offered by the cruise line only because I’d rather not risk missing my ship.

It was an outstanding combination of Montserrat and a city tour. Bernard was thoughtful and insightful. We felt it was totally worth our while.
Just ok

My husband and I booked this shore excursion for Barcelona because it allowed us to see most everything in the small amount of time we had for this cruise port. The tour itself contained about 9 people which was great, but half of the group came from hotels and not from the cruise. That group was late to their meeting point which held the rest of the group up. We stopped in Monteserrat, and yet again the group from hotels were late back to the meeting point. Once we got to Park Guell we had to be rushed because of the extra time we had to wait for the hotel group to get back to the bus and did not get a chance to even go inside a souvenir store. I would advise Viator to create shore excursions just for cruise passengers as we have the time constraint and it was clear that the people who were staying in hotels didn’t care whether or not we got to experience each spot to the fullest. It really could have been great because our tour guide was wonderful and extremely knowledgeable. If you are choosing this excursion for your cruise experience I recommend standing up for yourselves when it comes to your time contraindications and seeing everything you want.
Enjoyable shore excursion

We really enjoyed this shore excursion. Martha our tour guide was exceptional and the pacing of the tour was excellent. The driver was professional and we were never kept waiting. We highly recommend this excursion.
Great Excursion
, Jul 2018
Great way to see Gaudi's famous buildings - loved Park Guell! We walked around the outside of LaSagrada Familia and the guide was very informative about the building and Gaudi. The guide also gave interesting information about Barcelona as we moved through the city. Then nice trip to Montserrat. It was a well organized excursion. We were picked up and dropped off at the port (easy to find the guide). Great day!
Loved this tour !

My husband and I went on this tour in the pouring rain and the tour guide was wonderful. I would recommend this tour, however if you want to see La Familia Segrada you womt get to do this on this particular tour.
