This is the perfect place to get lost, Montjuic presents to you plenty of beautiful gardens! After a brief stop at the Catalunya National Art Museum (MNAC), from where we will tell you all about the history of Barcelona, we will make our way down to Plaça Espanya 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 Gaudï buildings: La Pedrera and Casa Batlló.

Finally, we will arrive at Sagrada Familia where your guide will explain all about the history and importance before showing you inside for a self-guided tour. No need to say how wonderful and gorgeous this masterpiece is! 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 trip as they experience the wonders of the Sagrada Familia at their own pace without being pushed by a guide. 

The group will go to the oldest part of Barcelona, the Gothic Quarter, which, as late, the mid 19th century was still surrounded by the Medieval walls. At this point, we will leave the bus and enjoy a walking tour through the narrow winding streets of medieval Barcelona.

Really good value, can not fault it
Our guide Carlos was amazing and gave a brilliant history tour that made the Gothic Quarter come alive. So much history would have been missed if we just wandered ourselves. I feel that by the end of the tour, we had a much better understanding of the history and culture of the area. It was very informative.

Excelente recorrido
Tuvimos un excelente recorrido nuestro último día en Barcelona, y descubrimos tanta información sobre la gente de Cataluña y la historia de la zona y exploramos partes del Barrio Gótico y El Born que nunca hubiéramos encontrado por nuestra cuenta. Nuestro guía Ricardo era muy eficiente y fue un placer conversar con él.
