Amazing show and food!! I was very impressed with the overall value and the Sangria was some of the best I’ve had. The setting is inside a cool village and access to the village is included.

Great tour!! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and personal. I didn’t expect that much history in Park Guell and I loved every part of it.

Very good experience , we were a group of 10. They all loved it . Shame the shirts were so expensive though . X

Great sunset cruise. Live music gives the whole experience a different vibe

Really nice aquarium and definitely worth a visit.
