for Montserrat & Codorniu Wine Cellars Tour
By Shona From Scotland At
We took the combined trip to the Cordorniu Winery and then to Montserrat. Both tours were fabulous, well organised and our guide, Laura, was fantastic. We would recommend to all, day not too long and not too short with the added bonus of having some sparkling wine in the morning. Thank you so much for a wonderful day.

Took the complete Barcelona City Tour on March 8, 2016, I highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see as much of Barcelona in a short amount of time. (We only had a couple of days here.)Our guide, Mariona, was knowledgeable, funny and charming. Her knowledge of the history of all the areas that we went was excellent. Very professional, ran according to schedule.

We have to commend Barcelona Guide Bureau and their guide, Laura, for providing us with a wonderful day touring Barcelona. We took the tour that combined a visit to Sagrada Familia with a tour of the City. The five hour tour was excellently managed as we arrived at Sagrada Familia early in the day when picture taking was perfect. The later tour of the City provided an excellent overview of Barcelona. Our guide Laura was excellent. She combined terrific local knowledge with a wonderful sense of humor to keep us interested and involved throughout the tour. She is also an excellent picture taker, so be sure to ask her to take a family picture in front of some sight. :-)

We did the Barcelona Highlight Tour and it was outstanding. The tour was on time the entire day, the bus was clean, the driver was safe and courteous,but most importantly, our Tour Guide, Oliver, was wonderful. He spoke perfect English, was extremely knowledgeable about all of the attractions that we visited, he was funny, however the reason he was so good was due to his pride and passion for his city. This was the reason we enjoyed the tour as much as we did.

We signed up for the All Barcelona Highlights Tour which was a 5 hour shared motor coach tour of all of the must-see attractions in and around Barcelona. Since this was our first full day in the city, we felt that this was the way to go to get a feel for the city and its highlights. We weren't disappointed. We saw the Basilica de la Sagrada Familia, the waterfront, the Spanish Village, and Montjuic Hill among others. Our tour guide was excellent and she shared many interesting facts and stories during the tour. We would definitely recommend this tour.

By Madison From Canada At
We enjoyed a well organized day trip to Montserrat and cava Country. The winery visit was very very informative and there was lots of cava to taste! The drive up the hill to Montserrat was exciting and the monastery visit everything we had hoped for. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The tour was on time coming and going…

By Mike From United States of America USA At
50% Familia Sagrada (Gaudi Cathedral), 50% other highlights of south-central Barcelona, including stopping at Montjuic Hill (a lookout photo-op) and Poble Espanyol (a shopping center featuring virtually all types of architecture from around Spain), with drive-bys of other Gaudi houses, Arc De Triomf, and many other major sights. The guide spoke decent English and kept excellent track of the attendees. Time well-managed. Highly recommended!

We used Barcelona Guide Bureau on our recent trip to Barcelona. We went on two tours: the Gaudi/Sagrada Familia and the Gothic/Picasso Museum tours. Both tours were excellent. The guides were knowledgeable and pleasant. It was a great way to see the city and I would highly recommend it.

We booked the Sagrada Familia tour before leaving for Barcelona, and we're glad we did it. The guide was very knowledgeable, and explained everything about the church, and why it was built the way it is. It was very interesting. We were also given the option to stay on longer after the tour, to explore further and shop for souvenirs, and the guide advised us on the best way to get back home. It was overall a great experience, and I would recommend it to friends.

It is definitely worth the time to take a tour to Montserrat. Our guide, Oliver, was fantastic and so knowledgeable. The only thing I would have liked was a little more time to explore but it was worth the trip to see the monastery and be on the mountain.

for Montserrat & Codorniu Wine Cellars Tour
By James From Australia At
My wife and I did the BGB Montserrat and winery tour. From the very start we were welcomed so warmly. The whole day was brilliant. The first stop was the Codorniu winery, where they make cava, Spain's version of champagne. This was absolutely amazing. Going down to the caves, trips via a little train system and a great tasting at the end. No pressure was put on us to buy anything either. The whole experience here was so well planned. Then onto Montserrat. Again, so we'll done. A quick tour around and some explanations, and we were given 2 hours to ourselves. We ended up doing the walk to St Michaels cross, and although it was arduous, the view was worth it all. Fantastic. We had a great driver and our guide was superb. She really helped us with everything, and was so informative. This is a very worthwhile day excursion, and the 66 euro per person. Very professional. We had a superb day.

This is pretty much what you'd expect in visiting a monastery – dramatic, pristine, well cared for. An easy trip from Barcelona – better on a guided tour.

for The Dalí Museum & Girona Tour
By Rachel C From Germany At
In my mind, there are 3 categories on which you would judge such a tour: (1) Content of the places visited. (2) Quality of the specific tour guide. (3) Quality of the overall experience with the booking agency. In all three categories, this tour should get 6 stars, but I'll start from (3) and work up to (1). On (3), the Barcelona Guide Bureau clearly wants to make sure you have a positive experience. We booked this tour at the front desk of our hotel simply by asking the front desk staff to call and make a reservation. I confess that I thought this tour was a little pricey, but I really wanted to go, so I booked it anyway. I don't think I fully understood the value of what I was getting though. In the morning, a cab driver met us at our hotel and delivered us to the train station where someone from BGB was there to greet our taxi driver and pay him. From there, Carla (the person who met us) gave us 3 sets of train tickets: 1 set for getting to Figueres, 1 set to get to Girona, and 1 set to get home from Girona. These train tickets already added up to 34 Euros in cost. I didn't have to deal with booking them, and I didn't have to deal with checking in at the train station. BGB handled all of this, which was nice, since we were on "Spanish time" and the tour had such an early start. After the first stop of the train (Girona), another tour guide, Jessica, came onto the train, introduced herself, and told us she would be our guide for the day. When I booked the tour, I didn't fully understand/appreciate that we would have a private guide taking care of us all day long. I quickly was beginning to see where the value was in the trip. When we got off of the train in Figueres, Jessica led us to a van, where a driver was waiting to drive us to the Dali Museum. Jessica gave us a very nice tour of the museum (more on that later), and then the same driver took us back to the train station so we could go to Girona. In Girona, she gave us time to have lunch, and then she gave us a very nice walking tour of Girona (more on that later). Finally, we took a taxi back to the Girona station and boarded a train for Barcelona. When I total what all of the different transportations would have cost me and my husband together with the three museum entries (one for the Dali museum, one for the Dali jewels, and one for a church in Girona (these alone add up to 22 Euros)), I actually am concerned that the trip is priced too low! When I initially saw the price, I did not understand that train tickets would cost 34 Euros, that in order to see both sites, I would need to take 4 taxi rides (probably another 20 to 22 Euros in total), that going to the three museums would be another 22 Euros. We are already at 78 Euros, and I didn't have to book anything, or think through any of the timing issues. Meanwhile, our guide was superbly trained and knowledgeable. Really and truly, it was a very very high touch service. They took care of so many things (pre-booking museum tkts, so we didn't have to wait in line, printing out train tickets, having coaches ready to take us to the next destination, etc.) The day was just so nice and smooth. (2) Our tour guide Jessica was beyond amazing. My husband and I are not scared to explore on our own. We were in Barcelona already for a week, and we took public transit everywhere, and never got into a taxi. As nice as the "high touch" service was, I really think the two of us could have managed getting out to Figueres on our own; however, we both said that going to the Dali museum on our own would have been kind of interesting, but nothing more. We don't know enough about Dali to even begin to appreciate his works. We needed a knowledgeable tour guide to show us some of the most important works and fill us in on the background behind them. My only real complaint about this trip (other than maybe the issue that Jessica was under-compensated for how wonderful she is) is that I would have liked an additional hour in the Dali museum to explore. I felt a little rushed at the end, and so did my husband; however, we both agreed that the alternative (going there on our own and having no clue about the background of the works) would not have been better. My suspicion is that BGB is somewhat at the mercy of the Renfe high-speed train schedule, and that maybe "giving us an extra hour" would have cost 3 hours in terms of the overall schedule. I did not look closely at the AVE schedule to really know. But seriously, Jessica knew so much. She was so interesting, and so kind. She was really lovely to be with all day. In Girona, she was also a tremendously excellent guide. I was confused by the sheer breadth of her knowledge. How was she able to field absolutely any question we had about the town's ancient history? Again, I had wanted to see Girona, but it's not clear what the point would have been in going on my own. I would have gotten there and just looked at everything and not known where to begin. She took us on a great walking tour which included both the large cathedral there, a museum about the cathedral, and the old Jewish quarter. (And by the way, she drops you off in a plaza for lunch that has just about the best gelato ever…=-)) (3) The content of the tour: IT's possible that even though Jessica is amazing, and the BGB put together a very nice day for their customers, that the Dali museum or walking around Girona might not be your thing. Here is why I enjoyed it: Dali is super interesting. We had gone to both the Picasso museum and the Miro museum. My husband and I enjoyed the Picasso museum, but found the Miro museum a little underwhelming. We had had a tour at both museums. Once you see Dali's work and have a window into his mind (through Jessica!), Miro's work didn't seem as interesting or novel to us. Dali seemed like a complete genius (if also a little interestingly crazy!) In any case, I really really enjoyed the Dali museum, and I think I would have even if I didn't have a great guide, but obviously, having a great guide who knew how to help me navigate the museum did make the experience that much better. I also would have simply missed a lot of important aspects of many of the works there. Finally, I think if you've enjoyed any of the walking tours that are given in Barcelona, you'll find the walking tour of Girona very historically interesting. My husband and I went on this trip without our kids. I do not think young children would thoroughly enjoy this trip, as the history might not seem interesting to them.

for The Dalí Museum Tour
By Garry G From Brunei At
We decided to book this tour as we would be back in Barcelona by 1.30 pm and all other tours to the Dali museum took a whole day. We were picked up by taxi from our hotel at 7.30 am and taken to the train station where we were met by a representative of the company who made sure we boarded the correct train. We went by high speed train to Figures where our guide Jessica met us and gave us one of the best experiences we have had with guides! Organizing a guide for this museum is a must, as the whole place comes to life in greater depth as we shared Jessica's passion for Dali, his life, perspective on life and work – particularly useful as my husband was totally clueless about Dali and usually adverse to visiting 'arty' museums – he has now become a fan! Our guide's anecdotal stories really brought this place to life! We highly recommend this tour.

Excellent trip out to Codorniu with cellar tour underground of 34 kms of tunnels to store the famous Cava, followed by tasting! Then further trip up to Mont Serrat!! Beautiful views and very informative guide! Then we finished the afternoon at La Sagrada – informative but very busy and difficulty hearing tour guide even with headphones on! Long day but most enjoyable!!
