What You Can Expect

Barcelona Private Tour with Skip-the-Line Access to La Sagrada Familia


Your private city tour starts with pickup at your Barcelona accommodation by your guide, who introduces you to the city’s top features and gives you tips you can use during the rest of your stay. Head first to Passeig de Gràcia, known for its line of modernist buildings such as La Pedrera (Casa Milà), Casa Lleó and Casa Batlló.

Continue to Eixample, designed by Ildefons Cerdà as an extension of the old town, and pass by Hospital de Sant Pau, another modernist masterpiece. When you arrive at La Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudí’s famously unfinished legacy, you have skip-the-line access so you can go straight in to marvel at the remarkable architecture (entrance fee itself is at your own expense). Inside this modernism jewel, admire the columns, ceiling and other features to try to understand Gaudí’s symbolism.

Next, visit the Ciutat Vella neighborhood, passing by the Arc de Triomf. Check out Parc de la Ciutadella, and follow your guide past sites like the Castle of the Three Dragons and the sculpture known as ‘The Grief,’ located in a lake. Continue to the city’s waterfront, traveling from Port Vell near La Rambla to the World Trade Center Barcelona.

Head next to Montjuïc outside the city center to enjoy a view of the city, including facilities from the 1992 Summer Olympic Games and the International Exhibition of 1929. Then go back into town for a leisurely walking tour through the Gothic Quarter, the city’s historical district of narrow streets and charming spots.

We had arrived very late the night before but managed to get up to make this tour. Our guide was professional and so interesting. She showed us everything we wanted to see and had some very interesting insights to share with us. We felt like we actually saw the city this time. We had been here two years ago but tried to see the sights on a Hop-on-Hop-Off bus and it was a nightmare. Too crowded and you could not ask questions or get any in depth information. Really just drove around and saw the tops of trees.
Our guide Cielia was outstanding. Very knowledgeable and pleasant. She took us for a wonderful lunch and introduced us to some local foods and drink. Thank you so much for making our day perfect.

Paul Cannon, our guide gave us an amazing overview of Barcelona. His knowledge and kind manner was much appreciated. First, driving around the city to include the coast and beach area and then a walking tour were well planned. After a delicious lunch in a local restaurant we toured the Bascilica La Sagrada Familia. In spite of large crowds we were able to get right in and spend time in this amazing church. Thank you, Paul, for giving us our best day in Barcelona!

BEST way to see Barcelona! Our tour guide Cecilia was simply amazing! Extremely knowledgeable and catered to our requests. There's simply no way we could have covered all of the main attractions without her. Would really recommend on the first day of a trip, as we were able to see the highlights and know which places to return to. She drove us around the city, which was wonderful as we did not have to deal with parking or wear ourselves out from walking. PERFECT.

A thorough tour of Barcelona. Marco, our guide, was full of insights and historical vignettes not normally found in Fodor's. We covered a lot of ground during our six-hour tour, but we were able to savor the places we were particularly interested in. We had a lovely lunch at a delightful hole-in-the wall pintxos bar as well. While we enjoyed walking, Marco's well-appointed vehicle enabled us to efficiently get to all the major sights in and around Barcelona. If your stay in Barcelona is short, you should really take this tour. Marco will ensure you will want to return to this vibrant city!

WE LOVE MIQUEL AND BARCELONA! Miquel was an amazing guide, and he truly showed us as much as he could in 1 day! Barcelona was a stop on our cruise, and we asked to see as much as possible within a 8 hour time frame. Miquel did not disappoint! He explained everything in detail, and fully helped my husband and I to understand the history beyond the ruins. Miquel treated us like family, took us to a cafe in his own neighborhood that he frequently visits, and introduced us to delicious food at a restaurant outside of La Sagrada Familia. We had an amazing day, and would definitely come back to take another tour with Miquel!
