Alex was a great tour guide. We hit all of the typical places for those visiting Barcelona for the first time. It is a private tour, so, it costs less per person the more people you have.

This was one of the highlights of our Barcelona trip! Our driver brought us everywhere we could possibly go and then some! The value of this trip is immense. We were able to see everything privately without a huge crowd with us. I 100% recommend this tour!
