Customer feedback about Activities in Barcelona

Rating 4.7 based on 75 reviews

Great experience and got great shots
Overall this was a good tour and a lot of fun. Andrei, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable about the history of Barcelona and was good about customizing his teaching to my level of knowledge. Furthermore, he was patient with me as I was shooting mostly film. I would recommend this tour for anyone wishing to take a different and in my opinion more interesting approach to photographing the beautiful city of Barcelona.

Spanish Cooking Experience in Barcelona
Favorite thing in Barcelona!
This experience was our favorite out of all our time in Barcelona- not to mention tasty! So cool to get to go to the fresh market, see the seafood, then learn to clean it. Added bonus was the sangria and tapas as the chef prepared the kitchen! This is a must do!
Spanish Cooking Experience in Barcelona
Montserrat is awesome...Jamie is AWESOME (er)
Hiking Montserrat with Jamie as our guide was a phenomenal experience! Jamie is awesome! Very down to earth! It was obvious that everyone’s comfort was important to him and he took genuine care and consideration of our group. If you are considering this hike you definitely need to be at a decent fitness level! It’s some work but pays off in the end. Montserrat is breathtakingly beautiful!

Spanish Cooking Experience in Barcelona
Jamie is an amazing guide
Jamie is an amazing athlete who has a passion for nature and people! He is careful to ensure you hike at your own pace and keeps the group together. We had approx 7 hiker guests with similar levels of fitness. The climb to the monastery is steep in places with amazing views yet also some shade. It is a strenuous climb but definitely doable! ;-). It was an approx 50 minute train ride from BCN and we took approx 2.5 hrs to reach the monastery and then an add’l 1.5 hrs to the summit! It was a very warm day and there was an opportunity to purchase more water once you arrived at the monastery. Half the group took the funicular on the way down due to the heat and the other part of the group walked to the bottom! Jamie is a warm, generous person and provided us some fruit on the morning train ride and some chocolate treats near the top! We would recommend this hike to all fit people who love the outdoors with amazing views of spectacular mountains. There was time to peruse the monastery on the descent!
Hike to the top of Montserrat mountain
The true way to experience Montserrat
Better than you can ever imagine. Jaime was a wonderful and accommodating guide and one of the friendliest people you will ever meet. If you like hiking even a little bit, don’t think about booking this any longer, stop reading this review and BOOK IT NOW! You won’t regret it. The views are absolutely incredible and it will be an experience you never forget. This is the true way to experience Montserrat and it’s majestic surroundings.
Hike to the top of Montserrat mountain
Incredible hike
Jamie is an incredible guide and really adjusts the hike to your pace. I would highly recommend booking this experience. We went from the base of the mountain to the top and at each stage it was more breathtaking. Be sure to bring good shoes and layer up. It was a full day once you factor in the train ride to and from (which he takes care of so you can just focus on what's important, the hike). Book it!

A party not a class
This event was more of a party than a class. We went to a market, which was the best part. Then the guests hung out in an industrial type space while the chef prepped the meal. The people were nice. We had some basic tapas ingredients and glorified fruit juice rumored to be sangria. Then we donned aprons and hats and watched the chef cook and chat. This was someone who had made paella 1000 times tossing another one together. No need to follow a recipe here. The chef was nice, even charming. Some participants poked the peppers and onions as they were sauteed. When the paella was done we ate. It was OK. We could then photograph a piece of paper with a paella recipe on it. I really like to cook. It was a nice time but not a cooking class. If it was billed as a party, I would give it another star at least.

Private 1-Hour Professional Photo Shoot in Barcelona

We had a great time we learned how to cook and make sangria. It was really great and the teachers were awesome! We would definitely do it again.
Spanish Cooking Experience in Barcelona
Excellent service! Francisco is not only extremely knowledgeable and friendly but accommodating and easy going. I was so happy to have had him while visiting Sagrada; the details provided by him made our experience there whole. And his actually spending his childhood in Guell Park gave us insights we would not have been able to get anywhere else. Thank you very much, Francisco!
Private Gaudi Tour of Barcelona with Transport
A four-hour tour that lasted almost five hours. The day was spoilt by being a very wet afternoon that almost derailed the tour but Francisco took it all in his stride and showed us what he could whilst it was raining but always hoped that the weather would fine up which it eventually did. We were able to spend some good dry time at both Park Guell and Sagrada Familia. Francisco's deep knowledge and love of his hometown is second to none. A great start to our four-day stay in Barcelona.
Private Gaudi Tour of Barcelona with Transport
Francisco is a wonderful guide who led us through some of Gaudi's Most impressive works and described them and all the colorful history and impact of his work. To add to this he is a very delightful guy to spend more than four hours with. He added personal touches including photos of us that arrived in our e-mail shortly after the tour.
