Full description
Get picked up wherever suits you best and travel by private transport around the best of Barcelona's sites.

With your professional guide, explore the different faces of Barcelona's architectonic legacy, its culture and its people.

The tour starts at Plaça Catalunya, the main center of Barcelona, connected to the street with the most distinctive Catalan architecture, Passeig de Gracia. Here, find the most striking facades of private modernist buildings; La Pedrera by Antoni Gaudí stands out in particular.

In the so-called "Apple of Discord," discover other impressive examples of modernist houses like Gaudí’s Casa Batlló, Casa Lleó-Morera or Casa Ametller.

Follow in the footsteps of the architect by entering the Eixample. This district was designed by Ildefons Cerdà as an extension of the old town, for the orderly growth of the city. Drive through its original streets to reach Gaudí’s masterpiece ​​La Sagrada Familia. During a guided visit, learn about the different parts of the building and its symbolism. You will be blown away by the bizarre forms of its columns, roofs and walls as the result of the organic nature of Gaudí’s architecture.

Continue on toward the Mediterranean sea, passing by the Plaza de Toros Monument and through the contemporary Agbar Tower, the newest reference point for the Barcelona skyline. Reach Bogatell beach and from here, cross the waterfront through to Port Vell (Old Port), the Gothic Drassanes and Columbus Monument (near the iconic La Rambla) to end at the brand new World Trade Center.

At the coastline, climb Montjuic Mountain to Mirador de l'Alcalde, a terrace from where you can enjoy the most spectacular panoramic views of Barcelona’s skyline. On the same mountain, discover the ‘92 Olympics facilities and architecture designed for the International Exhibition of 1929, such as Plaça Espanya (influenced by St. Peter's Square in the Vatican) or the National Palace.

From these heights, head back to the center of the Old Town. Finish the day with a relaxed walking tour with your professional guide through the charming corners of the Gothic Quarter, discovering the imprints of the Roman and medieval city. Stop at Cathedral Avenue to admire the magnificent temple’s Gothic façade and then travel back in time to the origins of Barcelona in Plaça Sant Jaume where the City Hall is located today.

The tour covered most of what you need to know and see about Barcelona. It is a fascinating city with diverse culture and history. In and Out Barcelona sent a very knowledgeable tour guide who knew the ins and outs of Barcelona. Joan Pare was funny, well informed, respectable and intuitive. He was totally candid and at times inspiring on his views of Barcelona and Spain in general. I am much more cognizant of Spain's history because of my interactions with Joan. Sagrada Familia, that is a masterpiece by Antoni Gaudi. I just learned of his tragic death but also how much colorful his life was.

Excellent guide - excellent tour

Marco was charming and personable from the start. Explained the basic outline of the tour straight away but asked us what we were especially interested in and adapted the itinerary as we went along. His knowledge of the history of Barcelona and the places we visited was very good and it was obvious that he had a genuine love and enthusiasm for his home town. We didn't at any point feel that we were being given the set tourism spiele - rather being taken around the home town of a local who was keen for us to understand and appreciate its charms. We asked lots of questions - about the politics, history, idiosycracies and geography of Barcelone and catalan culture - all were answered with intelligence and insight. We felt there was a very good balance between being on a specific tour and having time to explore the places we visited on our own. All in all an excellent way to be guided around. Thank you.
