Booked a city tour with Explore Catalunya and had a tour of the city by bus, then a stop at La Sagrada Familia for a skip-the-line inside tour. We also went the top of the city to Guell Park and then finished the day with a walking tour of the Gothic Quarter and a tour of one of Gaudi's houses. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kind to all of the people on the tour. Read Less

It was fine. There was quite a bit of walking. When the tour guide tells you to watch out for the pickpockets, listen to him/her. A man did his best to get my backpack. Luckily, two bicycle cops saw what happened to me and got the man off me. I wasn't able to see what finally happened to him because I needed to catch up with the tour group. Luckily, he didn't get anything from me but I learned my lesson and will never again lag behind alone and away from the group. Read Less

This building is AMAZING!! So much detail and art. Pictures do not do it justice. Seeing it for yourself is the way to go. I was just in awe at how much detail and art there was at one place.

Amazing church. More impressive than the Vatican. But, I don’t think that they are going to be “finished” within the next 10 years.

Next stop was Barcelona and our experiences improved considerably from here on. There is much to do in Barcelona. As we had been here before and seen the Olympic site, Montserrat (which is a good tour!) and Gaudi’s Park Guelle, we booked tickets to the Sagrada Familia tower tour. We planned to take a taxi there but unf ran into a bad taxi driver who insisted there was a protest downtown (which we never found nor did anyone confirm) and dropped us off short for a high price (10 Euros for 1 mile ride). He didn’t run his meter so we were suspicious but we weren’t sure what to say. We ended up walking 2 miles to the church which was fine for us. Another couple took a taxi direct to the church for 15 Euros so we were just unlucky. Church was cool – we had toured the inside before. Tower tour takes you up top in a small elevator with walkways around top with great views of Barcelona, then you take a narrow staircase down, then tour the inside. We booked tickets online 60 days before as we were told the tower tour can book up. Afterwards we had plenty of time to walk back to the harbor and shop, also grabbed lunch on the way. Barcelona is a very easy town to get around, just watch the grumpy taxi drivers! Ohh, to top it off, we took a taxi from outside the harbor to our ship which was a 5 min ride. Meter was running and we think it said 5 Euros but he charged us 10… again chose not to argue so paid up. OBTW, this contrasts with Rome taxi drivers who were amazingly honest – one couple said their taxi driver gave them money back because they overpaid. Read Less

We signed up through a local travel agency for a private tour and it turned out that morning it was raining so there was only three of us that went and it was great.
