Barcelona is a fascinating, culturally-rich tourist destination. There was so much to see and learn. Wish we had more time. The automated tour guide was excellent. The info provided is exactly what I want or expect from an experienced and well-prepared tour guide. The timing and frequency of the buses stopping in designated stops were appropriate and well-timed. One of the best hop-on and hop-off experience I’ve had.

Max was the best tour guide, had a great experience with him! Would strongly recommend using the segway tours as a means of getting around Barcelona and specially requesting for Max, if he is available.

We had a wonderful guide who was funny, friendly and knowledgeable. The first time being on a helicopter did not disappoint. Flying over Barcelona was amazing!
