Reviews of the All Barcelona Highlights Tour
Marta and Jorge were great We did the four hour tour with guide and driver.,perfect for us. We saw the high points of the city to include Sagrada Familia with your by Marta. I recommend this tour and ForeverBarcelona.
It was so nice to have a private car drive us from place to place. Miriam knew all about the history of Barcelona and her love for the city definitely showed in our conversations. It also was great that she showed us lots of fun shops and the culture of the city.
On our day stop in Barcelona from cruise we have booked half day private tour with ForeverBarcelona. Marga and her chauffeur pick us right on time, guide us through Barcelona main attractions. Within few hours she manages to show us all very interesting places, got us tickets, without any waiting time, to go inside La Sagrada Familia church, and to end the tour by refering us to a great tapas restaurant.
We hired ForeverBarcelona for a private tour of Barcelona with a driver. The vehicle was new, clean and quite comfortable. Our guide Montse was very fluent in English. She was very informative and a delight to spend time with. When we made it known we wanted to deviate from the standard tour this was no problem. The cost is well worth the value.
We arranged for a private, half day tour for 6 persons to acquaint ourselves with Barcelona, and to help us assess which sites to return to over the following days. The tour included “skip the line access” to Sagrada Familia. We were met at the hotel by a private van driven by Eugene… An excellent driver, and very personable. Our guide, Montserrat, was fantastic. Her knowledge of the city, its history, and its important landmarks was outstanding. Made for a truly enjoyable morning.
The mercedes van was spotless.
We had the BEST time in Barcelona, largely due to the two incredible tours that we had with Maria ("MJ"). We were staying in Barcelona for 2 nights after a cruise before our return home. On the first day we had booked a half day city tour and on the second day a 5 hour trip to Montserrat. Both were amazing! MJ was punctual, informative and so full of positive/incredible energy. Most importantly, she was very perceptive about our family and seamlessly adjusted the tour to fit our needs/interests. Our party of 6 consisted of my husband, our 2 children, my two parents (one with mobility issues due to a knee injury) and myself. MJ perfectly adjusted the tour to be slow enough for my mom to keep up and at the same time keep the interest of our kids. She was really able to keep all of us engaged which must have been a huge challenge (but you would have never known). She was continuously finding ways to make our time memorable (from finding fun ways to take a picture to stopping for local treats). She even went out of the way on our return trip from Montserrat so that my son could see/take a picture at Camp Nou (Barcelona Stadium) because she knew he had an interest (even though this was not part of our scheduled tour). Each day when MJ left us, she went out of her way to make sure that we had a good plan on how to utilize the remainder of our day in order to maximize our time in Barcelona. She is quite simply the best tour guide we have ever had. I also want to give a shout out to our driver Manuel. We felt incredibly safe riding around with him and he was always quick to add insight wherever he could. He was extremely friendly and very pleasant to spend the drive with.
Our visit to Barcelona would not have been as perfect if we had not started the first day with a chauffeured tour of the city with our guide Marga from ForeverBarcelona. Our group of six was 3 couples. Marga and our van driver arrived promptly on time — the van was immaculate and they were both very professional but also extremely warm, welcoming, personable and totally accomodating to our wishes. After outlining possible areas and points of interest to focus on and soliciting our input, we arrived at a joint plan for our time together. We visited multiple key areas of the city and with the van at our service were able to cover more distance and diversity than if we had taken a walking tour, while still doing a good deal of walking within focused areas – it was a great balance for our group. Marga and the driver coordinated the logistics “on the fly” beautifully, so we could maximize every minute and felt completely pampered.
Outstanding overview tour!
We only had a half day in Barcelona before our flight and wanted to get some photos of the city while learning about life there. We were delighted with our guide and driver. Maria Jesús informed and entertained while allowing us to take time for photos. She gave us excellent background information on life in Barcelona. We saw enough of the city to know that we want to come back for an extended visit. Eric dropped us off and picked us up in strategic spots so that we could maximize our time. It was an excellent experience.
We took a 4 hour tour of Barcelona’s Highlights with Miriam. We had a family of 3 adults and 3 kids age 6, 9 and 14. The tour was perfect! The adults and kids were engaged the whole time and we loved the overview she provided to us! We were only in Barcelona for 48 hours – the tour was the best possible way to get a good overview of the city and still have time to ourselves to shop and enjoy the city on our own.
We were traveling as a family of four, including two teenagers, and booked a half day tour that gave us an overview of Barcelona. The tour was exactly what we were looking for and we really enjoyed the combination of walking and driving in a brand new upscale Mercedes van. Marta was booked that day so our guide was Miriam who was very knowledgeable, professional and fun. She was able to share information reagarding Easter weekend and other cultural traditions that I am sure we would not have discovered through other resources. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
Driver got us close to all of the attractions and kept the van nice and cool for our return. Lidia was excellent and gave us some great insight into the city and the regional culture.
Miriam arrived right on time, picking us up with her driver at our hotel. She was a very knowledgeable guide – very friendly – and took great care to give us a wonderful tour and perfect overview of Barcelona. Of particular interest was Gaudi, and she showed us several important buildings in town and then took us to Guell Park which was very special and unique. This was a great introduction to Gaudi, as we had already reserved tickets to visit the Sagrada Familia a few days later. It was wonderful having a driver for our group of 6, allowing us to see so much more in a 4-hour period. We were won over by Barcelona (we had never visited before) and Miriam’s introduction was the perfect way to start.
