Because we also did hop on hop off, the first half of tour was uneventful and a waste of our time. The stop at the Spanish Village was not needed and you get maybe 10 minutes at Montjuic. But...do not miss Montserrat. Incredible! I would just do it with another combo.

Dear Stracq, Thank you for taking the time to post a review on our Montserrat half day tour. After reading your commentaries I regret you did not enjoy the first part of your combo tour through the city of Barcelona. Rest assured your opinion will be taken into account and transferred to our Barcelona manager to see if there is room for improvement for the Spanish Village part. Furthermore, I am pleased you did enjoy the afternoon part of the tour to Montserrat. We hope to see you again on your next visit to Barcelona. Best regards, Alex B
