Summary of The Day: Discover the beauty of Barcelona on this Best of Barcelona Tour, which offers a comprehensive view of this exquisite Catalan city, including a visit to La Sagrada Familia church. Perfect for first time visitors, the tour will show you the city’s highlights and allow you to discover some of Barcelona’s best kept secrets.
You'll enjoy skip-the-line access at La Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera, and Park Guell so you can avoid the long queues at this popular attraction. You'll also visit the hill of Montjuic and the Gothic Quarter. On this small group tour, you'll receive personalized attention from your guide.
We start our tour with a drive to the famous hill of Montjuic, which offers excellent views over the city and was the site of the 1992 Olympic games.
After a brief stop at the Catalunya National Art Museum (MNAC), we will make our way down to Plaza de Espana and on past the Modernist buildings of the Eixample area.
Our drive to the iconic Sagrada Familia will take us up Passeig de Gracia, home to the famous designer stores, and the setting for two of Barcelona's most talked about Gaudi buildings: La Pedrera and Casa Batllo.
Finally, we'll arrive at Sagrada Familia, stopping there for a visit inside the building. Our Skip the Line policy means entrance tickets will have been pre-purchased and there will be no queues! For many, this is the highlight of their Barcelona experience.
We'll then head to the oldest part of Barcelona, the Gothic Quarter, which, as late as the mid-19th century, was still surrounded by medieval walls.
At this point, we will leave the bus and enjoy a stroll through the narrow winding streets of medieval Barcelona.
At the start of our short walk through the historic streets of Barcelona, we'll stop for a brief tour of one of Barcelona's most traditional indoor food markets: Mercat de Santa Caterina.
From there, we will travel back in time, going from the Roman era through to the early Middle Ages, when the Catalan counts were controlling the Mediterranean sea and Barcelona was the capital of an empire.
During this part of the tour, we will also visit the Jewish Quarter, the Royal palace, the original 2,000 year-old Roman Temple, and part of the Cathedral.
For the final part of the morning tour, we'll tour the Born district, where the guide will point out a variety of restaurants and tapas bars suitable for lunch before ending the morning at the magnificent Santa Maria del Mar church - one of the most beautiful in Barcelona.
The guide will be more than happy to make some recommendations for lunch or dinner in the area, or for further sightseeing or shopping trips.
After a quick lunch, we'll head straight to Park Guell, the famous city garden designed by Anton Gaudi. The guide will lead the group down through the park explaining the garden concept and introducing you to some of Gaudi's most bizarre creations.
From the Park we'll head straight to one of the most famous Gaudi buildings of all: La Pedrera. We'll have an hour here to visit the building - inside and out. Our Skip the Line policy means that there is no waiting in queues! The tour ends here at around 4:00pm.

"Alex was the best tour guide we have ever had. Such a beautiful delightful woman. Her knowledge of the area, it's history plus she put the fun into it as well. The bus driver had to negotiate around all the Holiday activities and the Demon...stration but the two of them worked beautifully together to get us around all the traffic and barricades. We only did the half tour and now we wish we had done the full day tour with Alex. As I stated before, she was just the BEST!. Barcelona was beautiful" Read full review
