Totally recommended, it was great! We had booked the tour in German and were only informed on the spot that the tour was in English. I was really annoyed for the price. However, our guide Simona also spoke German and translated what we did not understand. We saw and learned a lot on the city tour. The absolute highlight was the helicopter flight. It was only 6 minutes but you had a great view of the city. The tickets were distributed for the boat tour and everyone could then set their own time. Boat wasn't really our thing, we didn't need it. Our conclusion... It was wonderful and we will never forget it!

The tour is highly recommended. Roger explained a lot about Barcelona to us in German and English, showed us places and gave us general tips. Due to his friendly nature, the tour was very relaxed and there was a good atmosphere. We saw places that we would never have found on our own. The view from the helicopter is very impressive and the boat trip had something too. Overall we were completely satisfied.
