The tour covered most of what you need to know and see about Barcelona. It is a fascinating city with diverse culture and history. In and Out Barcelona sent a very knowledgeable tour guide who knew the ins and outs of Barcelona. Joan Pare was funny, well informed, respectable and intuitive. He was totally candid and at times inspiring on his views of Barcelona and Spain in general. I am much more cognizant of Spain's history because of my interactions with Joan. Sagrada Familia, that is a masterpiece by Antoni Gaudi. I just learned of his tragic death but also how much colorful his life was.

All activities were well arranged and allocated sufficient time . It gives a good idea and views on the best of Barcelona . The two optional visits ( familier inside and park quell ) should be part of the tour rather than as optional. Tour guide Marco is good.

Emil did a fabulous job providing information on history, culture and architecture. He adapted quickly to a needed shift in route, swapped out his bike for one of ours when the seat kept twisting, and he demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the city.

It is a very fun way to see places in the cities, it helps you to be more detailed when observing the monuments. Doing it from an app gives you the facility to do it at your own pace and at the time that suits you best. I highly recommend it

Arnau was an excellent guide, great driver, highly recommend him!
