Created for the Olympic Games in 1992 and presided over by the Hotel Arts and Mapfre Towers, it is a good example of modern city architecture.

“Tanya was an excellent hostess. Everything so well organised.”
A lovely trip round Barcelona; the guide knows the place on the palm of her hand; perfect timing; great tips and suggestions; they go out of their way to ensure everyone is dropped off as close to their lodging as possible.

“The 'extra' knowledge from the Spanish guide big bonus, great trip.”
We learnt so much more from the live guide than on the usual your bus. Fountains were amazing and plenty of time there. We really appreciated getting dropped off by our hotel afterwards. Driver and guide excellent at their jobs. Would thoughly recommend.

“Many tours, all fantastic & well organized!” 5/5 stars

While in Barcelona for 2 weeks, I took 5 tours with this company and 2 with different companies. The tours I took were The Magic Fountain Night Tour, The Gaudi Tour, The Dali Museum Tour, Picasso Museum & Gothic Quarter Walking Tour, and Montserrat & Codorníu Wine Cellars Tour. I thoroughly enjoyed them all!

Comparing this company to others, I think this one is the best. They are very organized & structured, with all the staff exactly knowing what to do and when. The tour guides were very personable, knowledgeable, and professional. I was staying in the Gothic Quarters, so it was very easy for me to find the meeting point for the tour departures. They made getting to the destinations easy and I learned so much while being on these tours. They knew all sorts of interesting tidbits, legends, facts, and history to tell while traveling to the destination and, of course, while at the destination. I definitely would not have enjoyed visiting the sites near as much without a tour from this company.

While all 5 tours I took I greatly enjoyed, The Magic Fountain Night Tour and Montserrat & Codorníu Wine Cellars Tour were probably my two favorites. The Night Tour is a great "introduction to Barcelona" tour because they drive you around (great way to get your bearings) and show you the main sites on the way up Montjuic (which isn't easy to get to otherwise) all before the Magic Fountain show. Afterwards they drop you off near your hotel so you don't have to worry about finding your way back in the dark.
The Montserrat & Codorníu Wine Cellars Tour was also one of my favorites because you got to see some sites outside of the city center that otherwise would be near impossible to get to without your own vehicle. If you like wine, and amazing monasteries (or just mountains and the view from them), then this is a must do!

“tour of Barcelona” 5/5 stars

We were in Barcelona for a two day stay before a cruise. We had never been to Barcelona and do not speak Spanish so thought taking a tour would be best for us. We did three tours with Barcelona Guide Tours. The guides were very knowledgeable spoke English and welcomed us warmly to Barcelona. We did the Magic Fountain at night , Montserrat and Codorniu Cava Caves, and Sagrada Familia. We were very glad we spent the money for these tours we learned a lot about each venue as well as life in Barcelona.

“Insightful and well paced tour. Highly recommended. Don't look anywhere else.” 5/5 stars

Booked the 2.5 hour Sagrada Familia tour last minute and learned so much with Noemi. She presented an intelligent and well paced tour that pointed out highlights and important facts that we would not have known had we just visited the site on our own. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we booked 2 other tours (Monserrat and the Evening Illuminations for the same day with Oliver, who was equally impressive and friendly. Both tour guides were very educated and seemed very proud of their city and enjoyed sharing their info and knowledge. The driver, Jesus, was also very friendly and polite.
