Full description

Explore Barcelona on this 8-hour guided tour and see some of the most famous Gaudí landmarks. Walk down hidden streets in the Gothic Quarter, and stop to taste local tapas and wine. Start your tour with a drive to Montjuïc, the site of the 1992 Olympic Games, where you will be rewarded with superb views over the city and coast.

After a brief stop at the Catalunya National Art Museum (MNAC), make your way down to Plaça Espanya and drive past the Modernista buildings of L’Eixample. The journey to the Sagrada Familia takes you up Passeig de Gracia, home to famous designer stores and the setting for two of Barcelona’s best-loved Gaudí buildings, La Pedrera and Casa Batlló.

Before you tour the Sagrada Famìlia, you'll get an in-depth explanation of why this amazing building is so important to us and what it meant to Gaudí himself. Get fast-track access to explore inside Gaudi’s monumental, and incomplete, Sagrada Familia. You can save up to 2 hours of waiting in line in the summer. After your visit inside the church, continue to the Barrio Gótic, the oldest part of the city, which was still surrounded by Medieval walls as late as the mid-19th century. Stroll through the winding streets of the medieval quarter. Explore Barcelona’s Roman origins, through to the early Middle Ages when Catalan counts controlled the Mediterranean Sea and Barcelona was the capital of an empire.

Visit the Jewish Quarter and the original 2,000-year-old Roman Temple. End the morning with a visit inside the magnificent Santa Maria del Mar church.  After a quick lunch, head to Park Güell, the fabulous city garden designed by Gaudí. Your guide will lead you through the park explaining Gaudi’s concept and introducing you to some of his most bizarre creations. Finally, drive back to La Pedrera on Passeig de Gracia and skip the lines to tour inside one of the greatest Modernista buildings of them all.  Your guide will leave you here to allow you to spend as long as you want to explore the house with its brilliant architecture, visit the recreated 18th-century private dwelling, and enjoy the permanent exhibition in the rooftop attic.

What was supposed to be a group tour ended up being a private tour, so it was nice to have a tour guide to ourselves. Our tour guide, Sergio, was fantastic. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about Barcelona’s history and all the landmarks we visited that day. Our tour was all day, consisted of walking the first hour or hour and half through the gothic quarter, a cathedral as well as a church. Then we drove to La Sagrada Family which was AMAZING! Then we drove to Park Guell and ended at La Pedrera. Definitely recommend wearing comfortable shoes as there is a lot walking. You will have time to stop and buy snacks or water and coffee, so no need to worry about bringing those. I highly recommend this tour whether you have a short or long stay in Barcelona. You can learn so many wonderful things about Barcelona and Gaudi all in a day.

Our guide was Rod. He was WONDERFUL! He was very educational and informative. He was very aware and sensitive to take care of our walking, listening to him with the sun behind us, and that the van ride was comfortable for everyone. He’s very kind, upbeat and fun! The van driver was very nice but must have smoked before picking us up each destination b/c the van smelled strongly of cigarettes,

A very nice tour guide Jorge told us a lot about the city, fun and the highlights of Barcelona. So you got an overall impression of the city and the most important sights. There was time for breaks. Perhaps it would have been better if the walk had been shortened a bit at the beginning, then there would have been more time for the Sagrafamilia.
