    We didn’t really get to go inside many places- paying £45 to be taken outside areas you could visit on foot or metro. We learned some interesting bits but wouldn’t do it again. Some bits we were told seemed to be just to fill time, very long tiring day.

    In my opinion, the tour was nice and enough to learn and immerse in Catalan culture for one day. It is combined with walking, bus and a lift ride up the palace. Our afternoon tour guide was amazing and passionate about history and his culture. He gives you additional insights

    The tour should have been better organised and timed out. The 1st tour guide did not take us to the top of the castle view because time was short - she should have managed the time better. Also we booked an English tour and somehow there was one Spanish speaking person so the

    Dear Ascaribbean1, Thank you for posting a review on our Barcelona Highlights and Artistic tour. I am disappointed to see our tour did not live up to your expectations and I will keep your comments in mind for future revisions of the tour in order to improve it. I must point out that most of our tours are bilingual as is clearly stated on both our official website and vouchers. I look forward to see you using our services in the future. Kind regards, Alex B.

    Where do I begin. 1) There were 2 tour guides, a Spanish & a English speaking guide. However, the English speaking guide was unable to fully translate what the Spanish guide would state. Now the funny thing is that not only did she not know English but she also knew nothing

    Dear Karolyn M, Thank you for posting a review on our Barcelona Highlights + Artistic full day tour. I would like to apologize on Julia Travel’s behalf if you felt the explanations of the guide were not good enough. I will speak to the people responsible for the tour about it and about your comment on the audio guides to revise the operative of the tour, however I would like to point out that the itinerary of the tour is clearly stated on all our official selling points so that all of our customers have all the information before completing their purchase. I am however glad that you were able to enjoy the explanations of our Spanish guide. I hope to see you soon in one of our tours. Kind regards, Edgar W.
