What people are saying about Barcelona

Absolutely incredible! Gus with Get Your Guide was terrific. His knowledge of all aspects of the Montserrat was top notch. This tour was one of the best ever. The basilica at the monastery was inspiring as was the boy’s choir, who we were fortunate to hear / beautiful. So much to see there, could have stayed longer. Then on to the Oller de Mas winery with so much history and fabulous wine and nice lunch. Gus even gave the wine tour and lead the tasting session. He had great knowledge of the winery, the grapes and the wines selected This is a full day and worth it every minute. Great job Gus and to all at Get Your Guide!

Photographer did a great job taking time at each spot and on the walk to the different locations. It was a hot day and she was very willing to help in anyway possible. Can't wait to see the pics she got as well! Communication was great and the owner makes sure to answer any questions punctually! Would recommend!

Nice music and dancers. However has a poor feeling about it. I believe because of the costumes. Dancers were very good but dreased poorly which reflects negatively on the overall show and performance. Overall we did enjoy the music and traditional flamenco.

Beautiful little town by the sea, wonderful instructors and scuba shop was conveniently located close to water entry. Driver from Barcelona was charming and knowledgeable about the area and the occupants of the town. Excellent service wherever we went

Fantastic half day tour. Our guide Alex did an amazing job and was very knowledgeable. 3 hours free time was plenty for lunch, a short walk and browse. Very well organised
