Tour guide was well informed, flexible, enjoyable to tour and chat with, helpful in finding places to eat. Enjoyed the city, especially seeing the beautiful Sagrada Familia. Would have liked more free time to explore the city.

On the first day in Barcelona we met friends that were visiting Barcelona on a land tour. Had a great day with tapas and wine for dinner. On the second day we took a tour that took us by the Sagrada Familia, Park Guell and Monserrat. Quite frankly, there were too many tourists to enjoy Montserrat on the day we visited. Read Less

I've always wanted to see the Sagrada Famila and it's an incredibly amazing cathedral. Overall it's a lovely city, but it's overrun with tourists and the locals are starting to speak out about it. I counted anywhere from 4-5 very large cruise ships coming in each day, and many of these have Barcelona as their start or end point. My rough guess is that this puts 10-15k new people in Barcelona every day during the high season, then you add all of the other tourists that all want to see the same things, and I think Barcelona is close to a breaking point. Hopefully they manage this before things start breaking down. We did have a lovely meal of beer and tapas at an "off the beaten path" restaurant that was great and mind-blowingly cheap. We also had one of our favorite meals of our trip there, overlooking the city, at Restaurant Martinez. Read Less

We did a private 4hr bus tour (max 5 couples) with A/C for a very hot day in Barcelona, where it took us to the top of the Montjuic, block of Discord, Park Guell and Sagrada Familia. Those sites are far apart from each other and while Rick Steves says you can access it all with transit, it was honestly easier with a tour bus who also gives you information. Sites were nice but it was too hot to end the day in the middle of town, so we went back to the ship for lunch and relaxation. In late afternoon, we took the port shuttle back into town for 2 hours to wander the Ramblas and eat some churros and hot chocolate before returning to the A/C of the boat. Note that the taxi ship shuttle shuts down by 4pm, but the port shuttle "Cruise Bus" were continuous every 15-20 minutes (to world trade ctr) and only cost 3-5 euro round trip. Read Less

It would be better to have taken the tour ourselves. Please note that the shuttle bus organized by MSC was pricey (30 euros for a family of four) for a 5 min ride (1.5km). Better take the free shuttle by the port.

Our cruise finished in Barcelona so we spent 2 extra nights to re-acquaint ourselves with a place we hadn't visited for about 30 years. We took a 1/2 day tour immediately after leaving the ship, which was very professionally done by Barcelona Day Tours, they were great. The next day we did the hop on hop off with Barcelona BusTuristic which was excellent. The audio was the best of the hoho's that we did and there was ample warning we were approaching the numerous stops. We visited the wonderful indoor market, La Boqueria, Park Guell, Sagrada Familia, etc., and for dinner on our last night ate at Los Caracoles, just off of the Ramblas which was excellent. Our hotel, the Silken Ramblas also just off of Las Ramblas was good, they have an excellent menu of the day that they also serve in the evening for 17 euros, including a glass of wine. Read Less
