Tarragona and Sitges Private Day Trip from Barcelona

Tarragona and Sitges Private Day Trip from Barcelona

After pickup from a centrally located spot in Barcelona, relax during the scenic journey to Tarragona in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. On arrival, follow in the footsteps of Roman gladiators as you stand before the impressive Roman aqueduct and explore the ambient Old Quarter on a guided walking tour. 

After browsing Tarragona’s artisan market for hand-made souvenirs, head to the Roman amphitheater and climb the ancient steps to enjoy stunning sea views. Hear gruesome tales of bloody battles from your guide and then admire the Christian church in the center of the structure’s center. 

Depart from Tarragona in your private vehicle and travel to Roc de Sant Gaieta, a quaint village situated on a sandy stretch of Mediterranean coast. Stroll through the village and enjoy sweeping vistas of the seaside before heading to Sitges to lose yourself in the coastal allure of the old fishing village. 

Navigate the ambient labyrinth of shady side streets and delight in pretty fisherman’s houses as you stroll towards the blissful beaches on the coast. Enjoy a leisurely lunch on the beachfront promenade (own expense) and take a refreshing dip into the undulating waves of the sea at one of 17 beaches. 

After relaxing, return to your vehicle and unwind during the journey back to Barcelona, where the private tour concludes.

Our tour guide,Alex, was a wealth of information, extremely knowledgable. Worthwhile. Wish the day could have been longer to spend more time in Sitges.

Absolutely wonderful!! Our private 4-person tour started with a detailed history of Barcelona on our way out of the city. Our guide was FANTASTIC and took the opportunity to give us an overview of the major sites we saw along the drive to Tarragona. Once in Tarragona, we visited the Roman Aquaduct - fascinating! Then there was a walking tour of the city with free time to explore afterwards.So many ruins and historical places to see - we were intriqued by them all. Next we visited Sitges and were given the opportunity to have lunch, hang out on the beach or simply walk around the city. There was the perfect amount of time for everything. As we headed back to Barcelona, along the coast this time, we were given yet more facts about Barcelona's rich history and culture....our guide made the drive interesting, and we completed our tour with the satisfaction that we had seen some remarkable places and had quite an enjoyable day. A big thanks to our tour guide!!!

Really glad we took the tour since we had only 2 days to go around Barcelona. This took a day off but was worth it. The representative from the Sitges Office of Tourism took us on a walking tour and he switched from Spanish to English without any effort. That was amazing!

The whole day was perfect from start to finish. Our English speaking guide and the driver looked after us all day. The timings were just right, and we loved our hour tour of the beautiful Sitges with time left to wander and have a cool drink. Would love to do it again.

I thought it was one of the best tours I have been on! Our tour guide was very friendly and it was a great way to get out of the city and explore what was around Barcelona. The only thing I did not like was the limited time in Sitges as I feel we were a little rushed. But there are three stops so I felt I really got to see everything. Would HIGHLY recommend this tour.
