“Montjuic Tour with Sonia was excellent” 5/5 stars

We wanted a tour of the Montjuic area and the seaport on the Mediterranean. Sonia, our tour guide, was great. Her English was perfect, easy to understand and her knowledge and humor enhanced the tour. The bus was air conditioned and very comfortable and the 2 and 1/2 hour tour was the perfect amount of time. We had free time in the Spanish Village which was very nice and gorgeous views of Barcelona from Montjuic. I would highly recommend Sonia and the Barelona Tourisme company.

“Good Guides make the difference” 4/5 stars

We booked the Gaudi tour from home, and as that went well decided to stay with BCB for most of the day, and took the Montjuic and Panoramic tour which gave an excellent range of sights out of the city centre. Poble Espanyol was a highlight, and in the lunch break there had the best tapas we had in Spain. We had hoped to see Montserrat and a tour seemed the most practical way, so we signed up for that as well – certainly worth doing.

The Palau de la Música Catalana is perhaps not as well known outside of Spain as Gaudi's creations, but definitely worth a visit to see the ceiling alone! Again we booked a tour with BGB and would recommend this.

Our one criticism of the Gaudi tour is that they did not stop at Palau Guell, Casa Calvet or Casa Mila even to allow a few photos to be taken, but traffic and time constraints may have made that difficult.

Our stay in Barcelona was definitely enriched by touring with BGB and we would go with them again whenever we get the chance.
