Valentina was excellent. There was plenty of food however although its quality was adequate we expected a higher quality given the price.

Tour was good but overpriced. And though we enjoyed the tour, the food was not good and it was just too much money for what we received.

This was a great tour. Our guide Eric was the best. The whole evening was so much fun. Even though we had been touring Barcelona a couple of days with tour guides Eric gave us history that we had not heard and took us places we had not been to on the other tours. Highly recommend this tour.

Eric was our guide and he was absolutely fantastic. Super welcoming to all, let us introduce ourselves, told us his story, then off we went. Great information on the history of everything we saw and added humor to many things. He is the best guide I have ever had on many years of taking tours. Highly recommended!
