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.

We had an incredible time on the fast track La Sagrada de Familia/ Barcelona city tour with Gloria as our guide. We would rate our tour experience as a 10 out of 10 and would certainly recommend this tour to any and everyone looking to go to explore the essential attractions of Barcelona. Gloria had a fun and friendly personality and she was such a wealth of knowledge during the tour.

The best one day tour of Barcelona anyone can without rushing.

HAd a wonderful guided tour of Barcelona and whether it was just bby the bus, walking or actually being in each spot of this well rounded tour, the details were awesome and the hidden gems like Eg. the Lift at the Columbus column, the Barcelona kiss etc that were shared really were true (I asked other friends abt some of these and they didnt know!). The skip the line worked exactly like it is supposed to and adequate time provided. The small bus was perfect and service was awesome. Miguel, our tour guide is the best, funny and wants to spread all info he has. I later took a tour of my own across all the places that we had to see just by the bus, but again Miguel's guidance helped. Overall you don't feel tired at the end of it and return with a great experience.

Judy, our guide, is a wealth of information. She did not disappoint from start to finish. She gave us a historical background of all places we’ve visited. Her instructions are clear and on point. I will not recommend this for families with small kids though due to the amount of walking involved. Overall, an excellent tour! I highly recommend.
