Barcelona Skyline - Port Olímpic
Gothic Quarter - Pont suspés - Old Town
Sagrada Família (quadrada)

The Must-See Places (2x4h)

First time in Barcelona and you don’t want to miss anything. To split the tour in two days is the best; if it is not possible, let’s do it in a row stopping for lunch in a typical tapas restaurant.
Let’s make two blocks (4 hours each)
OLD TOWN: a walk to taste 2000 years of history. Let’s discover the Gothic Quarter, La Rambla, Food Market, Cathedral, Roman Temple, etc. A little break is always essential to taste a “Suïs” a delicious hot chocolate with cream and churros in a historic place.
NEW TOWN: includes the fancy Passeig de Gràcia with the most impressive bourgeoise houses such as Casa Batlló and la Pedrera; and of course, Gaudi’s masterpieces: Sagrada Familia and Park Güell.

If you choose the chauffeured vehicle per 4 hours option, then add to the listed places a panoramic tour where you will admire the views of Barcelona from the Montjuïc Hill, you will see the Olympic facilities and we will pass by the Arch of Triumph gateway of the Art Nouveau Architecture in Barcelona. If time permits let’s see the seafront.

Walking tour through the Old Town; New City by taxi or chauffeured Mercedes.
Note: taxis are perfect and less expensive, but to get the most out of our tour, a vehicle per 4 hours would help on it.

Meet up location / End location

MEET UP: I suggest starting the tour at the Boqueria food Market, but I can pick you up at your hotel/apartment/cruise Ship or wherever we agree as long as it is in Barcelona.
DROP OFF: wherever you want. I can suggest some restaurants or some places to visit on your own.

AIRPORT: If you want to start or finish this tour at the airport, it is necessary to choose the vehicle option and the tour will last 7.30h

Tour Extensions
  • If you choose the two tours in two different days, extend one day one hour to visit the inside of one of the houses of Gaudí (I recommend la Pedrera); and/or extend the other day one hour to visit the Picasso Museum – Cost of the extra hour: €73
  • If you have a 3rd day in Barcelona, although that there are other interesting places in town to be visited, I would suggest a tour out of town, maybe the Montserrat Tour.
