Full description

Enjoy this walking tour of Barcelona 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.

Start your tour at the famous Ramblas, the heart of the city center. 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 for 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.

Afterward, 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 experience started out horrible because our cab driver dropped us off on the correct street name but opposite end of town. Thankfully we were able to contact our guide, Miguel, and he offered us an alternative meeting spot so we could still make half of the tour. He was a terrific guide. Anything he didn’t know he happily looked up for us and he made the tour a little more fun. I would have reduced this tour by 1 star because you don’t actually get to go into the castle and the dungeons were under repair but that was out of the booking companies control.

Nice walk around the city. Best way to know the city and learn about its history. This tour should be done on the first few days after arrival to learn the streets, monuments and historic buildings. Experience is weather dependent so keep an eye on the weather for the day of the tour.

Our guide Miguel was excellent, he took time to explain culture and history. The walk was about 2 miles, but not difficult. Ride in train getting to cable car was full of people- masks advised. The old quarter and views were very good. It wasn’t a castle, it was a military fort. 5 stars!
