Engaging and amazing experience

Guide was very engaging and insightful about all the places especially around La Rambla and the way to Cathedral of Barcelona. Throws in a joke now and then just to keep the group engaged. Amazing views when riding the cable car on Montjuic (3 station ride, Centre --> Bottom --> Top). Also, the olympic village, stadium can be seen on the way down.

This tour provides an interesting overview of Barcelona.

The tour guide, Cecilia, was amazing. Cecilia was a very professional, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and friendly young woman. She did an excellent job of explaining what we were seeing and providing the background about the attraction. She tried very hard to work around an obstacle (bike marathon) that would make the tour easier for the participants. Cecilia's knowledge and enthusiasm made this an excellent experience. It was very clear that sharing her knowledge was a passion for Cecilia.

Tour was OK, would have liked a little bit more time on the mountain.

The tour guide didn't speak very fluent English, so occationally it was a bit difficult to follow the descriptions. The tour covered most of the interesting spots, and is a good start for identifying things to re-visit. The visit to Montjuic was a bit short, we would have liked to spend 20-30 minutes there, instead we got off the bus and almost immediately boarded the cable car down again. But in all the tour was worth the time and money.
