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.

I think this is THE tour to have in Barcelona! This tour offers a kind of "all in one" attractions package which was exactly what we wanted. We did the all day tour and it was more than worth it. Our tour guide Gloria was incredible, she was very knowledgeable and energetic. I wish all tour guides were like her, she worked very hard all day and has made our time in Barcelona extremely fun and enjoyable. This tour gave us a sense of the city and it was great to not really wait in the line for Sagrada Familia and all the other Gaudi attractions. Sagrada Familia on its own is worth visiting Barcelona for, it is spectacular, everything else is ju

The tour was outstanding! Our guide, Rodrigo, is an excellent guide - knowledgeable, interesting, personable, and funny. He is also always considerate of the needs of the people in the group, other groups in the area, and leaving adequate space for the locals. The tour hit the sites I wanted to see and we spent enough time at each one. The group size was not too big. It was easy to find the meeting spot, and initial organizational/ administration functions were handled efficiently. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get an overview of the top sites in Barcelona. The next time we go, we know which sites we want to explore further. And again, Rod is a real pro. He really brought Barcelona to life for us.

It was a wonderful, well-organised trip. The best part of the whole trip was our tour guide, Sergei. To say that Sergei is well-informed is an understatement. With him, the tour weaves itself like a story; and he unravels every page with so much to offer, historically to this date. The trip was a perfect mix of explaining and guidance as well as giving us the space to do what we would prefer to do at every site. The next time I'm back in Barcelona, we'll go to any trip that Sergei is guiding us on. Simply incredible. I was one of those people who misunderstood that none of the entrance tickets were included. So it felt not as great a value for money as we had initially thought it would be. But that is more of a personal issue, nothing wrong with the trip itself.
