We liked that our guide was a native English speaker. We’d been in sone other tours where the accents were so heavy it was hard to catch everything they said and we missed parts of the info. We enjoyed our guide. We had a small group and the guide did a good job of facilitating conversation amongst the two groups helped and it making the overall experience even more enjoyable. I do think it might be helpful though to create some sort of timeline or narrative to help out what you are seeing into context. It felt like he was jumping around all over the place—backward and forward in time, and back and forth between buildings. It was a little hard to follow. Food was good—wine? Not so much! Overall, glad we did it.

Eric was Outstanding in every way! Everyone in our group of 8 enjoyed his tour!

Highly recommend this tour! Vera was an amazing guide, and her knowledge of Catalonian food and history was impressive. Well worth the money if you visit Barcelona!
