Our tour was a great experience. The tour was well planned to show us the highlights of Barcelona and Monserrat was spectacular. Our guide Matt made the tour very interesting with his knowledge of the history of Barcelona. It was a busy, full day but well worth it. Would recommend this tour and also our guide Matt.

Fabulous small group tour with our family. Matt picked us up at our Hotel and proceeded to introduce our group to his Barcelona. We thoroughly enjoyed the pace and information delivered. A memorable trip through the city by car and on foot. Sagrada Familia was amazing and a break for lunch fortified us for the afternoon excursion to Montserrat. This must be experienced for its breathtaking views and sacred history. A total immersive experience.
Great experience. Learned a lot of things about Barcelona and got familiarized with the city with the help of our guide.
