I was awestruck by the Sagrada Familia, but couldn't have been more disappointed with the rest of the day. I would love to speak to someone in charge about this. The guide was ill, offered NO information of any interest along the way unless we asked, English was OK at best. I literally could have Uber'ed around Barcelona myself and bought a ticket to the Sagrada for significantly less than what I spent. Please have someone call me at 402-881-2263. By the way, this review is very skewed as well as I would rate the attraction 5 stars, but that was 1/4th of my day. The rest was a waste of time.

This tour was outstanding and not to be missed. Matteus our tour guide arrived promptly to our hotel for pick up. We were a party of 4 adults and he ensured that we got to see most of the highlights of Barcelona within 7 1/2 hours, which most folks need 2-3 days. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the historical facts of the city and Gaudí and La Sagrada Família. He even orchestrated and arranged for us to have an incredible lunch in the new part of the old city. It was an incredible day and a definite must do while in Barcelona❤️
