Explore Barcelona any way you want on a 4-hour, customizable private tour with an expert local guide. Choose a morning or afternoon tour, tell your guide your interests in advance, and enjoy an itinerary customized to your preferences. Traveling by air-conditioned vehicle and on foot, perhaps marvel at the astonishing La Sagrada Familia cathedral by Antoni Gaudi; discover the Roman and medieval secrets of the beautiful Gothic Quarter; and admire panoramic city views from Montjuic Hill — the choice is yours. Entrance fees, food and drink are at your own expense.
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 Barcelona’s history and architecture and some of the famous figures who have shaped the city’s past and present.
Perhaps start at Barcelona’s 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, isn’t due to be completed until 2026.
You may want to check out more of Gaudi’s mind-bending creations at Park Güell, with its playful ceramic sculptures and terraces. Or visit the stunning Casa Batlló or La Pedrera, otherwise known as the Casa Milà; 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 Gòtic), 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 city’s 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 Barcelona’s 1992 Olympic arenas. Snap photos of the stadiums and soak up the awesome bird’s-eye views of the city from the summit.
After your explorations, your private tour ends with a drop-off at your hotel.
