Full description
Start your tour at the famous Ramblas, the heart of the city centre. Enjoy this walking tour of the Old Town and visit the famous Boqueria Market, considered one of the best markets in the world because of its modernist design and the richness of products it offers. Pass by the Gran Teatre del Liceu, a classic example of Catalan modernism, as well as the Palau Güell, one of the most stunning examples of Antoni Gaudi’s architecture.   Continue your walking tour to discover Raval, the most multicultural and off-the-beaten-path district of the Old Town, that attracts people from diverse social, cultural, and geographical backgrounds. Visit the Rambla del Raval to take a picture with the enormous Cat Statue by Fernando Botero, perhaps one of the cutest statues you’ll ever see. Take the Montjuic funicular and prepare yourself a bird’s eye view of Barcelona. Enjoy the breathtaking views from the Montjuic cable car as you gaze down on Barcelona’s iconic skyline. At the top of the funicular, you’ll reach Montjuic Castle, enjoying a private visit exclusively with your small group. Explore the military fortress, and enjoy access to exclusive areas, like the building’s dungeons.  Emerging from the dungeons, head to Montjuic Castle’s tower for the most spectacular, panoramic viewpoints of the city — if the day is clear enough, you'll see all the way to the Pyrenees. Afterwards, you’ll head back to the Old Town via cable car, in perfect time to enjoy a delicious meal of tapas — be sure to pick up some recommendations from your guide for the best restaurants to hit.

This is but far the best trip I have done in Barcelona, Armando our tour guide is just an amazing guy and he know the place and history of it like the palm of his hand. I do really recommend it. Be aware there is a lot of walking around 10,000 steps of walking So make sure you have enough water and a cap.

This was a very nice tour. However our guide Carla would have benefited greatly from a microphone/headset set up that I have experienced another tours in Barcelona and other areas. She does not have a loud voice and it was difficult to hear her and understand her so a lot of the information was missed. We enjoyed the walking part of the tour, I actually thought we were going to be walking into the market/Boqueria with a bit of information and time to look around briefly but we did not. Would have loved that. We enjoyed the cable car ride up to the castle and the castle was nice to see and it was very interesting seeing the dungeons and prison areas and learning about it. Overall a very good experience but because it was a longer tour, being able to hear everything would have taken it from good to amazing with the benefit of a headset or microphone.

Carla, our guide, was so knowledgeable and passionate about the tour, the culture and all manner of things about Barcelona. She was patient, kind and looked after our group so well. Highly recommend a walking tour to see and hear about things that we had already walked passed and missed.
