Know More about this tour

Before your tour, your private guide will contact you to discuss what you want to do and see on your half-day tour. Agree your itinerary or leave it open for your guide to lead the way. All entrance fees, food and drinks during your tour are at your own expense.

On the day, meet your guide at your Barcelona hotel, hop inside your air-conditioned vehicle and drive to the first stop. As you travel, hear fascinating tales about Barcelonas history and architecture and some of the famous figures who have shaped the citys past and present.
Perhaps start at Barcelonas most iconic sight: La Sagrada familia. This surreal-looking cathedral was designed by the late, great Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi. Marvel at the famously unfinished masterpiece and hear how its construction, begun in 1882, isnt due to be completed until 2026.

You may want to check out more of Gaudis mind-bending creations at Park Gell, with its playful ceramic sculptures and terraces. Or visit the stunning Casa Batll or La Pedrera, otherwise known as the Casa Mil; two of his eye-popping decorative mansions on the Passeig de Gracia avenue.

Alternatively, focus on the older side of Barcelona. Drive to the atmospheric Gothic quarter (Barri Gtic), and stroll around the cobbled lanes to admire its Roman relics, medieval squares and 14th-century Barcelona cathedral (Catedral La Seu). Continue to La Ramblas, the citys colorful main shopping avenue with its tapas bars, street entertainers and flower markets.

If time allows, perhaps finish at Montjuic Hill, home to many of Barcelonas 1992 Olympic arenas. Snap photos of the stadiums and soak up the awesome birds-eye views of the city from the summit.

After your explorations, your private tour ends with a drop-off at your hotel.

    Guide was VERY knowledgeable, but tried to cram in everything, leaving little time for feedback and questions. A few persons in our group had a hard time understanding her English.

    Sonia is a superstar. So knowledgeable and pleasant. We started at the Sagrada Familia. Sonia and Johan (the driver and also very nice) took us there at the start of the tour and we were able to buy tickets and enter the basilica. Amazing!. We then went to Park Guell which is another remarkably unique experience. We then went to Rambla Catalunia and visited Casa Mila, Casa Battlo and the Amatller Shop. The entire time Sonia was educating us about the area. Johan chatted with us about Barcelonan life as well. I just cannot express my thanks to both of them for a such a wonderful experience. To top it off, they drove us to the beach and recommended a great Paella restaurant right on the water. I would do this tour again, no questions asked!

    We had a Spanish woman. Her name was Frances in English. She was so precious and knowledgeable about her town and took us to great spots. My teenage kids fell in love with her. The driver was also awesome. Highly recommend!

    It was an excellent tour with our tour guide and her excellent driver. Since we had a limited time in Barcelona this was the perfect choice. It allowed us to taylor our sightseeing to what we wanted to cover.

    Perfect excursion! Our guide was knowledgeable and provided excellent information, history, and commentary. We really enjoyed this tour!

    I thought the tour guide was very knowledgeable, however, after reading all the reviews I was expecting the tour guide's English to be a bit better. He was fairly hard to understand and he even commented that he typically did tours for groups that spoke Spanish, so I'm not sure why he was assigned as our guide. Additionally, the Viator site specifically stated that the tour company would contact me in advance to discuss a customized tour, however, they didn't, so we basically just went only to the places that he wanted to take us as, again, it was too difficult to explain to him where we wanted to go due to the translation/language barrier.

    Sonja was great. Very flexible. Let us choose what we wanted to see. After that, she had some very good suggestions. We really enjoyed the views from Montjuic. Much better than the Sagrada view.

    Andrea was a fantastic tour guide. My husband had a bad knee, so we mostly drove, but stopped briefly for to get out and take
    photos. He was intensely knowledgeable and pleasant! We learned more about Barcelona in this 1/2 day tour than the entire
    rest of our trip. Loved the historic perspective of Barcelona's rich past.

    Our tour guide and driver were fantastic! Squeezed in all that we asked for and gave us excellent advice on what we shouldn't miss !
