Really excellent tour, and our guide, Marta, was the best. She had a lot of interesting background information about the sites we visited and made the trip very educational and entertaining. We saw the outside of the Gaudi church and had a walking tour of Guell Park. We then drove up to Montserrat and had plenty of time to explore. Finally, we had a driving tour of various Barcelona neighborhoods and wrapped up the tour at the Gaudi church where some of us had tickets to go in (entry to the church was not included in the tour). Highly recommend this tour; tour operator and Viator communication and support prior to the tour was also excellent.
