Barcelona Highlights Tour
October 12, 2022
We highly recommend this tour. It was everything and more! We started with a walking tour of the El Born neighborhood and Gothic Quarter. It was exactly what I wanted to visit in Barcelona and hadn't done the day before. Then we went to the Mountain which had incredible views of the city . We went on a cable car/funnicula ride which was an added treat. Passing the Olympic Stadium was a highlight as we could see into the stadium as we passed. This tour had a knowledgeable and personable guide. It definitely was worth it.

This was a great introduction to the beautiful city of Barcelona. We had 5 days to explore Barcelona after our cruise and this hit all the highlights so we could choose what we wanted to see in depth when we had more time to explore. It was exactly what we wanted at a reasonable price!

Enjoyed our tour

Very enjoyable tour! So many modes of transportation. A walking tour of the older parts of the city, a tour bus ride around the city, and an aerial tram ride up the side of cliff to view the city from above. Our guide was very informative and great at pointing out places to eat and also for restrooms breaks.

Great day out with tour guide Errol. Excellent English thoroughly enjoyable day. Great weather as always. Only downside was we did not go to Spanish Village dut to another bloody marathon. Tour companies should alter their itineraries around these events.

Enjoyed this trip, but was not given my ticket to the Spanish Village, so missed out on it, although I had paid for it.

We enjoyed the walking tour of the Gothic quarter and Ramblas it was nice to walk through the streets with the guide explaining everything we saw. We drove through parts of Barcelona but would have liked to stop to take pictures of certain places like the beach. The time spent on the Mount Juric was beautiful as you got to see the whole panoramic view of this beautiful city.

Barcelona Highlights & Spanish Village

We had a free shuttle bus that dropped us off close to Laramba which was the road that we needed to walk on to get to the tour operator. Previous reviews on this one was that the directions were a little sketchy. As it turned out we literally arrived at the office with no time to spare. We were lucky we made this tour as it left right on time. Perhaps in future the tour could leave a little later giving the cruise ship passengers a little more time to get to the location. We were concerned about this one based on past reviews. All in all it was a great tour and the guide once again was fantastic.

Pre-cruise trip in Barcelona (day 2)
October 03, 2017
Early Sunday mornings in Barcelona were so quiet, fresh and beautiful. On our shuttle ride, we toured some old buildings, still Gaudi's works, and some new constructions, including the 1992 Olympic Games venue, the Columbus Monument, and the Ramblas Ave. Ramblas was really crowded, the place where terrorists attacked not long ago. It was filled with flowers. Then we went to Mont Juic, which overlooked the whole city from the mountain. We were amazed that the Sagrada Famina that is nine kilometers away was clearly visible. We took a cable car down the mountain and went to a preservation of the Spanish-style town, very charming. After the tour, we went to Picasso Museum that is close to our hotel and is hidden in a small alley. It is worth a look. We went to La Paradeta seafood at night. The restaurant offers fresh fish and two ways of cooking the fish. We ordered eight kinds of fish, shrimp, and clams, which were all very fresh and delicious, well-deserved reputation.

Interesting tour - wonderful guide - passionate and excited about her city and her country. Only thing stopping it from being excellent was need to get to tour start - not picked up at ship. This fact needs to be relayed PRIOR to booking - may have affected our decision to book.

We liked this tour very much, even though we were jet lagged. It was our first day in Europe ever, and everything was interesting and beautiful to us. The guide was very informative.

Barcelona Shore excursion
December 16, 2016
We enjoyed our glimpse of Barcelona and loved the guide. She so enjoyed her city and her work. However, we feel we should know when we book excursions that we will have to travel to meet the tour. We naively expected the shore excursions would leave from our port.

Spanish Village and Barcelona highlights

Loved seeing the Spanish Village in all its beauty with the nice tour guides info. When we arrived in the City highlights, I was busy taking photos and lost the group. I think you might think about having a person watching people. Thank you Sandy Kiernan

I loved this tour! Mont Juic, Spanish Village, Gothic Quarter, La Rambla and so much more. Booking with Shore Excusions was easy and reliable.
Perfect Barceloma Tour

This was an excellent tour of Barcelona. The Spanish village was very interesting and a nice place for a break for food and wine. The old city and cathedral were fascinating as a walking tour. I like that the tour ended in the old city so you could spend as much time as you wanted. It was a short, inexpensive taxi ride back to the cruise ship when done.

Barcelona and Soanish Village

It would have been easier for the guide if everyone in the group spoke the same language. He had to keep switching from English to Spanish. He was marvelous and did a great job.

Great tour. Guide was exceptional. Definitely recommend the 1/2 day tour. People who took the full day were complaining that it was too long and had too much free time.
