    What to Expect
    Barcelona Morning Sightseeing Tour: (4.5 hours)Greet your guide at a centrally located point in Barcelona and travel to Plaça de Catalunya to enjoy a leisurely stroll around the distinctive fountains and impressive statues of the square. Navigate the labyrinth of medieval streets that comprise Barri Gòtic and gaze at the splintering spire of Barcelona’s Cathedral as you head towards Place Sant Jaume.

    Return to your coach to enjoy sweeping vistas of the Mediterranean Sea as you ascend to the Olympic Village. See monuments from the Olympics and then continue your ascent to Montjuic hill to see the city’s impressive skyline from a unique vantage point; visit the Spanish Village to see a diverse architectural tableau inspired by different Spanish regions.

    Conclude your morning tour with a cable car ride to Montjuic Castle and capture even more fantastic photographs from the vertiginous position of the ancient fortress. Return to sea level and bid your guide farewell before beginning your afternoon tour.

    Artistic BarcelonaTour Including Gaudi’s La Sagrada Familia and Priority Access Pass to Park Güell: (4.5 hours)Meet your guide in central Barcelona and embark on your artistic exploration of the city. Start at La Sagrada Familia, a controversial modernist construction that has remained famously unfinished. Gaze at its sky-piercing spires as your guide explains the compelling history of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed site.

    Next, visit the verdant expanse of Park Güell, an outdoor complex thronged with eccentric sculptures and richly decorated terraces. Sail past the long lines outside with your priority-access pass and explore the green landscape with your guide.

    Conclude your tour with a wander down Passeig de Gràcia, a boulevard home to two of Gaudi’s artistic expressions, La Pedrera and Casa Batlló. Hear of how the buildings were originally designed as luxurious private apartments and then bid your guide and group farewell at this central location.

    In my opinion, the tour was nice and enough to learn and immerse in Catalan culture for one day. It is combined with walking, bus and a lift ride up the palace. Our afternoon tour guide was amazing and passionate about history and his culture....More

    Events that took place there are significant, interesting and very relevant to the history and origins of Barcelona. Close to many other relevant historical sites so easy to include in tour.
