exceptional and our guide Richard topissime, it was a surprise for my spouse everyone to play the games, discover the city on foot plus rest a drink seen from Barcelona at sea and seen impressive by plane.

Everything was great, but unfortunately our helicopter flight could not take place because the king was in Barcelona and this was forbidden. But the organizers couldn't do anything about that.

On land, in the air, on water. So I was able to get an idea of Barcelona from different perspectives in a short time. It's a great option - not cheap, but very rewarding - and recommended.

Were a very good tour of the city along the various Gaudi houses down to the harbour. Was very informative and knowledgeable.

Very competent guide Lukas!! We would never have found the hidden sights.!
