Here's what our customers have to say

Pamela Orth


Barcelona is a 'walking' city. We never took public transportation so Bruc Balcon is a perfect location for an apartment. Walk to Parc Guell and to the harbor. See and wander through all the small streets and alleys. Look up at balconies. Visit the Picasso museum and their gift shop is a must for last min. gifts to take home!

Marsha Owens


Barcelona was a city of surprises. The mix of old and new, the fabulous architecture, the energy of a big city, and the plethora of things to do provided an unforgettable travel experience.

Clay Cook


We have done several UnTours destinations and this would rank at or near the top! From pick-up at the train station to delivery to the airport everything was well thought-out and done smoothly. Our apartment was perfect! It was charming and sophisticated and well located for almost everything we wanted to see and do.

Joseph Schaefer


UnTours certainly has a gem in Adriana Nadal Piella! She was excellent in caring for us, and she showed great patience in waiting for us on the first morning. The Museum passes and transportation passes were great. Adriana did an excellent job in providing information about local attractions and on how to use the transportation system.

Mary Wezeman


Placa de Catalunya is great fun. The city is extraordinary, beautiful, clean, with the most whimsical and delightful architecture we've ever seen... we loved the city and its people - what we could see and enjoy. Unlike others, it is a city of smiling people.

Jane Conrad


Barcelona is a vibrant city. Its size makes it easy to become familiar with many neighborhoods. These apartments should be full. We would love to recommend it!

Vickie Kelber and George Wilhelm


Our apartment, with its balcony, view, and WIFI was great. We loved Barcelona. We easily could have spent two weeks there. If you are a walker, as I am, Barcelona is a delight. Once again, Idyll has picked a perfect location - both the city and the apartment.

Barbara Martin


Walk, walk, walk. The more you walk, the smaller Barcelona becomes. It really is a delightful city with so much to see. Architecturally it is amazing. Get away from La Rambla and find those places that offer the specials for 10 E or less. They're a good deal.

Gerald Fleischer


This was one of our favorite UnTours, partly due to the excellent coordinator.
