Itinerary

9am: Make your own way to Barcelona’s cruise ship port to meet your friendly, local guide. Then, visit a nearby cooking school and set yourself up for the day with a delicious, Spanish breakfast (own expense).

9:30am: Following breakfast, head to one of the city’s most iconic structures, Casa Batlló. Marvel at its eye-catching, multicolored design before heading inside to gaze at its equally captivating interior. As you stroll around the residence-come-museum with your guide, learn about the history of the building and its creator, the famous modernist architect Antoni Gaudi. On route to Casa Batlló, you’ll also visit a shop belonging to the trendy Catalan designer Sita Murt, and peek in at some of the city’s picturesque, private courtyards.

1pm: After spending the morning admiring Gaudi’s great masterpiece, make for the beach district of La Barceloneta. Stroll along the sun-dappled promenade, and discover from your guide how to find a good tapas bar. Then, when you’ve made your selection, take a seat out front and sink your teeth into a selection of tantalizing tapas dishes (own expense) while enjoying views of the azure Mediterranean Sea.

Next, hop in a cab and make your way to the bohemian district of El Born. Stop off at one of the most popular ice cream parlors in town, then visit Santa Maria del Mar, the locals’ favorite church.

2:30pm: Enjoy a leisurely stroll over to Barcelona’s oldest district, the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic). Keep cool as you meander down the shaded, narrow medieval streets of the old Jewish district and the Roman town. Then, stop at St James’s Square (Plaça Sant Jaume) in the heart of Barcelona Old Town.

Then, make for La Rambla, the most famous street in all of Barcelona. Peruse the many food and flower stands before exploring the winding streets that snake off of the main boulevard.

4pm: End your tour at Plaça Sant Felip Neri, undoubtedly one of the city’s most charming and romantic squares. Take a seat at an outdoor terrace that was made famous by Woody Allen’s film Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Then, savor a glass of wine and have some fun reenacting scenes from the movie at the spot where the movie’s two lead characters, played by Scarlett Johansson and Rebecca Hall, ate lunch.

As the day draws to a close, say goodbye to your guide at the prearranged departure point.

A bit too much quirk and political commentary for our taste

Biel was a wonderful tour guide. We were delayed and he was very accommodating. He was very informed and added personal touches about his family and their history as well. He did an excellent job and we were delighted to have had him as our guide.

Angelique was a great guide. Very knowledgeable and agreeable to do what we wanted.
My HUGE issue is with Karolinak, the lady at the tour vender that set up the day.
I filled out an information sheet stating all the things we wanted to do. Of course there were more things on the list than were feasible to do in a day. But I wanted her to pick the big ones.
The only big site for a whole day was Sagrafa Familia. And she just about screwed up that one!!
All we did after that was Gothic Quarter and some urban street... Lame!!!
We could have easily gone to Park Gruell the other half of the day,
I was furious. I had no desire for the urban street or Gothic area.
Very disappointed in my wasted only day in Barcelona.

The guide was professional, arrived on time and looked for us. Every request was met. This excursion was very good, because it was only my husband and myself. She took us to a restaurant where the locals ate and it was delicious.

My tour guide was very kind, knowledgable, and so prepared with her information and where we toured. She was very patient as I took pictures and gave me all the time I needed. I was so lucky to have her as my guide. Highly recommend!! I learned some amazing history and highlights thanks to her!
