Take an intimate sightseeing tour of Barcelona during this fully-customizable, 4-hour private guided tour. This easily personalized excursion is the perfect way to check out the iconic city of Barcelona with an knowledgable guide and private transport, customizing your visit to match your interests.

Start your private guided tour of Barcelona by meeting your guide at your hotel at a pre-arranged time that matches your schedule.

Along the way, immerse yourself in the fascinating history and intriguing architecture and colorful characters of Barcelona as your guide shares stories and details about the city's past.

Your tour might take you to the renowned Sagrada Familia cathedral, designed by the world-famous architect Antoni Gaudí. This sprawling religious structure is still under construction more than 130 years after work began. Or head to Gaudí's popular Park Güell, a colorful park bedecked in detailed ceramic tilework set in the hills above Barcelona. You might also check out Gaudí's two most iconic houses, Casa Batlló or La Pedrera, which line Barcelona's Passeig de Gracia boulevard.

History lovers might choose to focus on the city's atmospheric Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic), where you can walk among the ancient buildings and walls dating from the Roman and medieval era and see the intricate 14th-century Barcelona Cathedral (Catedral La Seu). Or head to the famous walking promenade La Rambla, where you can check out the many street performers, tapas bars and stores that line its busy streets. The choice is up to you.

Two more options include the famous Montjuic Mountain, offering great city views and the chance to see many structures built for the 1992 Olympic Games, as well as the Picasso Museum, which hosts an impressive collection of the artist's work.

Please note, some monuments such as the Cathedral, Casa Batlló, Casa Mila, Sagrada Familia and Picasso Museum may require entrance fees, which are not included in the cost of this tour.

Our tour guide Sonia was the best! She provided such helpful commentary and tailored our tour to our family 3 teenagers. While my husband and I could have stayed at Sagrada Familia with Sonia all day, we kept the tour moving and saw many of the sights of Barcelona. It was a great first activity so that we were able to get a feel for this great city.
