Best of Barcelona Private Tour including Sagrada Familia

See the best that Barcelona has to offer on this private half-day guided excursion covering some of the city’s top highlights (and optional upgrade to a full-day visit). Best of all, this intimate, personalized visit allows you to customize some portions of your visit to cater to your specific interests.

Start your day with pickup from your Barcelona hotel around 8:30am. Depending on your specific itinerary, it may also be possible to adjust your start time once the booking is confirmed. Begin by driving with your guide to the hilltop sanctuary of Montjuïc, a combination park, cultural and recreational area that hosted the 1992 Olympic Games.

Enjoy superlative views of the Barcelona cityscape before making a quick stop at the Catalunya National Art Museum and then heading back down to Plaça Espanya and through Eixample, a neighborhood known for its modernist architecture.

Continue the trip with a drive down Passeig de Gracia, one of the city’s most upscale shopping streets, passing the famous architectural works of Antoni Gaudí, La Pedrera and Casa Batlló, as you go. Soon you’ll arrive at the towering La Sagrada Familia cathedral, where you’ll take advantage of your included skip-the-line admission ticket, heading right inside to view the incredible construction feats inside this one-of-a-kind religious structure.

Proceed next on a walking-based wander through the narrow streets of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter. Sip on an included glass of cava (sparkling wine) at one of the district’s local markets, then meander your way back in time, passing the remains of a 2,000-year-old Roman temple and the area’s ancient Jewish Quarter and Royal Palace.

You’ll then head to El Born, a trendy area just adjacent to the Gothic Quarter, where you’ll stop for a short lunch break before visiting the beautiful Santa Maria del Mar church. Those on the half-day tour will end their trip here around 1pm.

For those who select the full-day tour upgrade, you’ll continue in the afternoon with guided visits to two of the magnificent creations of Antoni Gaudí, the hillside Park Güell and the beautiful La Pedrera. See the itinerary below for more details on the full-day and the two tour options.
