Full description

During this exciting half-day tour, visit some of the most beautiful places in Barcelona. You will also get to explore La Sagrada Familia where you will skip the line in order to save precious time. 

After pick-up at your accommodation in Barcelona, journey by private transport to experience the different faces of Barcelona. During the tour, your expert guide will share fascinating stories about the city’s unique architecture, culture, and history.

This half-day tour will let you discover the real essence of Barcelona. Enjoy the world-famous landmarks, the hidden secrets, and the fantastic sights of Barcelona together with an enthusiastic guide in a small friendly group.

Begin your tour in Plaça Catalunya, Barcelona’s central square. The plaza connects to the avenue Passeig de Grácia, which features some of the best examples of Catalan architecture. Take a moment to admire the striking façades of private Modernist buildings, among them Gaudí´s famous La Pedrera.

Follow in the footsteps of Gaudí as you explore l’Eixample next. After visiting the majestic Hospital de Sant Pau, continue to Gaudí’s masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia. 

See the different parts of the building and the many examples of religious symbolism hidden in its unique façades. You are sure to be captivated by Gaudi’s incredible architectural style: the peculiar shape of the columns, ceilings, walls, and the organic architecture of the basilica.

This tour also includes a relaxed walking tour through the charming corners of the Gothic Quarter. Your guide will take you through its quaint little back streets to find the hidden imprints left by the Romans and medieval times in this world-famous neighborhood.

Miquel was the best tour guide we've ever met. He was energetic, funny, and very informative. Lots of great stops on the tour of the city itself, he took photos for us in creative ways that came out awesome, and was great at pointing out unique details about the city we'd have never known otherwise. This was a great finishing touch on our visit to Barcelona, thank you again Miquel!!

Our guide, Jordi, was excellent, and I strongly recommend him. The tour was perfectly organized with short drives between the sites. Jordi was fun and personable and a great teacher/story teller, with very interesting historical and current anecdotes. We were a small group tour of 8, a very comfortable number. Was a prefect tour for our first day in beautiful Barcelona.

Miguel was an AWESOME Tour guide…. he was prompt, knowledgeable, energetic, and had a great sense of humor. We loved the tour with the amazing visit to Sagrada Familia, and tours of the city including a cathedral, Roman Ruins, Gaudi Residences he created, a visit to the beach, and to a mountain too!! What a great time!
