    What to Expect
    This super saver tour of Barcelona combines the city's top sights into one convenient, money-saving package. Whether you're a first-time visitor to Barcelona looking to get an overview of this unique Catalonian capital, or simply hoping to cover a lot of ground for one discounted price, this combined excursion is a great option.

    Start your morning by meeting your guide in central Barcelona. Proceed on a sightseeing tour of central Barcelona during the morning, including a stroll through the Gothic Quarter and a visit to Montjuic via the sky-high Montjuic cable car.

    Then in the afternoon, continue on to the mountaintop retreat of Montserrat just outside Barcelona proper, where you board a cog-wheel train to explore this unique pilgrimage site, including its 12th-century Romanesque carving of the Virgen Moroneta (Black Virgin).

    For full details of your day-long excursion, read the full itinerary below.
