when you want a city guided tour, you assume few things either the person is local hence know all the history OR he is experienced enough to tell you the details of the tour.

This tour is well planned but our guide Paulo, he was not a native as well as a very nervous guy. He was skipping lots of questions (e.g. one of us ask him about who is the architect of one of the building. Later I came to know that that building is very famous because of it architecture as it was mix of gothic and neo-gothic.)

It seems that he has just crammed the facts from a book and that there was no flow in this facts. He was trying to recall things which was very disappointing as you are paying a handsome money for this tour.

Plus was that other guy at store was really helpful as our card was not working, he let us use his own phone to make call to bank and he also gave us few suggestions for good dining places near around.

Excellent way to view Barcelona. Enjoyed the whole experience. Jordan was an excellent tour guide and was informative as well as entertaining. Highlight of the trip thus far.

Jordan was our guide. He was an excellent guide from Australia. I learned more on this tour than I had learned in the previous 2 times I had been to Barcelona. We had a large family group with 2 young children that my niece & nephew hauled behind them; a two year old in bucket seat & the 4 year old in attached trailer with pedals. Jordan managed to keep us all together and safely maneuver us through the busy streets & narrow passage ways of historic Barcelona. Was so much fun! We had time to buy beer or gelato at the beach & get our feet wet. Even as tired & out of shape I am, it was easy to keep up with the group!! DO THIS TOUR! You won't be sorry!

Highly recommend. Jordan was our guide. He gave a great mix of history and humor during the tour. The ride was very relaxing concentrating mostly on the old part of the city. Best way to see a lot without having to stand in line.

Fat Tire tours are the best way to see a city. Jordan was our guide in Barcelona and he was excellent. He was very knowledgable and took his time to explain and answer questions. I would definitely recommend this way to tour the city.
