You can get there with the t10 ticket for metro (Paral-el stop) and funicular, it really helps because it would be very steep to go on foot. The day we got there was Christmas, so everything (Castle, Botanical garden) was closed and we ended up just going for a walk. Once you go down you can get out of the cable car on a stop in between, so you can explore some more

We had an outstanding experience. Our guide was knowledgeable, funny and personable with all the people within our group. We had such a great time and would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Barcelona!

It was the perfect way to see Barcelona! We would never have been able to see so many parts of the city on our own. This was really fun AND we learned. a lot from our GPS tour guide!

Exceptional ride and also the park cafe has good collection of food items and coffee. Suggestion is go early in the morning to avoid the crowd.

Its was really good, we enjoyed it alot, it was great money spend.
