Overall rating

based on 3,776 reviews

Great prices through GetYourGuide. Saved a good amount on gate prices. Having the tickets on your phone means no ticket queues. Portaventura was fabulously decorated for Christmas with loads of photo opportunities. It was busy but nothing like during summer months. Only 30 mins for Dragon Khan. Downside - the water rides- log flumes and Tutuki splash not open in winter but River Rapids were open. Great family day out

Vincente was a great guide! He went above and beyond the duties of a tour guide, and he was very good at adapting to the needs and interests of the different people on the tour. He was also very knowledgeable. We had a great time!

Our guide Alina was terrific! She taught us so much about the history of Catalonia and Spain. She was very knowledgeable and engaging. She made Tarragona come alive.

Professional and very friendly guide. The experience was so much fun — Highly recommend!

Great opportunity not to wait in the line but go directly into the park.
