What You Can Expect

Barcelona in One Day Sightseeing Tour

See Park Guell and have a magnificent view of the city with this one day Barcelona tour!!

Barcelona Morning Sightseeing Tour: (4.5 hours)
Meet your guide in central Barcelona, hop aboard your coach, and travel to Plaça de Catalunya to disembark for a stroll. Work your way around the square’s beautiful fountains and statues, before wandering along the narrow medieval streets of Barri Gòtic. Pass Barcelona Cathedral as you continue to Plaça Sant Jaume, where the Palace of Generalitat and the Town Hall are found.

Next, hop back on board your coach and take in views of the Mediterranean Sea lapping Barcelona’s coastline on the way to the Olympic village, home to Port Olympic and the Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium.

Travel up to the summit of Montjuic hill for panoramic views of the city and its bustling harbor. Admire sights of Palau Sant Jordi and Calatrava Tower, and then visit the Spanish Village to see typical architecture and traditional crafts from different regions of Spain. 

Finish your morning with a cable car ride up to Montjuic Castle for more views of Barcelona’s stunning skyline, and then travel back down the hill by coach to central Barcelona. Bid your guide farewell, and enjoy roughly 2 hours at leisure before your afternoon tour starts.

Artistic Barcelona Including Gaudi’s La Sagrada Familia and Skip-the-Line Entry to Park Güell: (4.5 hours)
After meeting your guide in central Barcelona, set off on your afternoon tour with a stroll to La Sagrada Familia, one of Gaudi’s most famous works. Work your way around the exterior of the UNESCO-listed cathedral, gazing up at its sky-piercing spires, as your guide explains some of the standout highlights of the monument’s architecture and history.

From the cathedral, follow your guide to Park Güell, an extensive garden complex located on the hill of El Carmel that was also designed by Gaudi. Known for its architectural features with mosaic terraces, curved walls and eye-catching sculptures, the park attracts lengthy entrance lines. Skip past the lines with your fast-track ticket and head inside to explore the pretty walkways and leafy parkland with your guide.

Continue with a stroll down Passeig de Gràcia, the street that’s home to two more Gaudi works of art: Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. Learn how the buildings were designed as lavish private residences while posing for photos in front of them, and then bid your guide a fond farewell as your Super Saver finishes.

We did the morning part of this tour, which was similar to Best of Barcelona tour so opted to not do the afternoon part, which were the Gaudi buildings which we had been to on the other tour. So I say, do one or the other.

This tour was amazing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

The tour has been average in the morning session, but with the afternoon tour guide, the magnificient Romina, the tour has become really great. Romina has been able to provide in a perfect English and in a very attractive way, a lot of useful and interesting informations about the Segrada Family and Park Gual. She has turned the tour to a real picnic one. Whoever wishes to go for that tour should specifically ask for Romina as a tour guide.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Both tour guides were excellent - informative, knowledgeable, friendly and patient. I would use the company again and recommend to anyone.
