Full description

Explore Barcelona on this 8-hour guided tour and see some of the most famous Gaudí landmarks. Walk down hidden streets in the Gothic Quarter, and stop to taste local tapas and wine. Start your tour with a drive to Montjuïc, the site of the 1992 Olympic Games, where you will be rewarded with superb views over the city and coast.

After a brief stop at the Catalunya National Art Museum (MNAC), make your way down to Plaça Espanya and drive past the Modernista buildings of L’Eixample. The journey to the Sagrada Familia takes you up Passeig de Gracia, home to famous designer stores and the setting for two of Barcelona’s best-loved Gaudí buildings, La Pedrera and Casa Batlló.

Before you tour the Sagrada Famìlia, you'll get an in-depth explanation of why this amazing building is so important to us and what it meant to Gaudí himself. Get fast-track access to explore inside Gaudi’s monumental, and incomplete, Sagrada Familia. You can save up to 2 hours of waiting in line in the summer. After your visit inside the church, continue to the Barrio Gótic, the oldest part of the city, which was still surrounded by Medieval walls as late as the mid-19th century. Stroll through the winding streets of the medieval quarter. Explore Barcelona’s Roman origins, through to the early Middle Ages when Catalan counts controlled the Mediterranean Sea and Barcelona was the capital of an empire.

Visit the Jewish Quarter and the original 2,000-year-old Roman Temple. End the morning with a visit inside the magnificent Santa Maria del Mar church.  After a quick lunch, head to Park Güell, the fabulous city garden designed by Gaudí. Your guide will lead you through the park explaining Gaudi’s concept and introducing you to some of his most bizarre creations. Finally, drive back to La Pedrera on Passeig de Gracia and skip the lines to tour inside one of the greatest Modernista buildings of them all.  Your guide will leave you here to allow you to spend as long as you want to explore the house with its brilliant architecture, visit the recreated 18th-century private dwelling, and enjoy the permanent exhibition in the rooftop attic.

Good combination of city history and Modernist architecture. Gloria was an excellent guide - highly informative, good English, and funny. The microphone on the bus was not very good - she was easier to understand without it. The microphone/earphones setup offered by the operators at La Sagrada Familia picked up a lot of ambient noise which similarly made understanding her difficult - recommend removing one earbud or staying really close. (Visited Casa Batllo the next day to round out our Gaudí experience.)

The guide was kind and explained the Gaudi architectures and the historical places in the city very well. It was easy to understand and informative. We moved to the places by car ( driven by the guide) , it was very convenient. Thanks so much for making our trip so much fun!! I really recommend this tour for those who want to visit every popular place in Barcelona in a day and know about the history of city. FYI- ticket prices for Sangria Familia, Park Güell, Casa Mila are not included, and you can choose whether to go inside or not, but do recommend visit all of them, it was worthy.

We had an incredible time on the fast track La Sagrada de Familia/ Barcelona city tour with Gloria as our guide. We would rate our tour experience as a 10 out of 10 and would certainly recommend this tour to any and everyone looking to go to explore the essential attractions of Barcelona. Gloria had a fun and friendly personality and she was such a wealth of knowledge during the tour.
