Your day in Barcelona is totally customizable and the itinerary for your half- or full-day tour will be tailored to suit your needs and interests. Before your tour, your private guide will contact you to discuss the things you want to see, so that your logistics can be arranged in advance.

On the day of your tour, meet your guide at your preferred location, then set off by whatever necessary means of transport is required. Public transport is included, but all meals, entrance fees and requested transport by private vehicle are payable at your own expense.

Perhaps visit some of the city’s must-see sights like Casa Batlló, the breathtaking Gothic Quarter and Las Ramblas, a vibrant neighborhood that surrounds the famous La Rambla boulevard. Or, head off in search of the city’s best kept secrets such as the El Raval district, a lively, multicultural neighborhood with an eclectic array of cafes, restaurants, bars, art studios, bookshops and museums.

See the Itinerary for a sample full-day tour.

9am: Make your own way to Barcelona’s cruise ship port to meet your friendly, local guide. Then, visit a nearby cooking school and set yourself up for the day with a delicious, Spanish breakfast (own expense).

9:30am: Following breakfast, head to one of the city’s most iconic structures, Casa Batlló. Marvel at its eye-catching, multicolored design before heading inside to gaze at its equally captivating interior. As you stroll around the residence-come-museum with your guide, learn about the history of the building and its creator, the famous modernist architect Antoni Gaudi. On route to Casa Batlló, you’ll also visit a shop belonging to the trendy Catalan designer Sita Murt, and peek in at some of the city’s picturesque, private courtyards.

1pm: After spending the morning admiring Gaudi’s great masterpiece, make for the beach district of La Barceloneta. Stroll along the sun-dappled promenade, and discover from your guide how to find a good tapas bar. Then, when you’ve made your selection, take a seat out front and sink your teeth into a selection of tantalizing tapas dishes (own expense) while enjoying views of the azure Mediterranean Sea.

Next, hop in a cab and make your way to the bohemian district of El Born. Stop off at one of the most popular ice cream parlors in town, then visit Santa Maria del Mar, the locals’ favorite church.

2:30pm: Enjoy a leisurely stroll over to Barcelona’s oldest district, the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic). Keep cool as you meander down the shaded, narrow medieval streets of the old Jewish district and the Roman town. Then, stop at St James’s Square (Plaça Sant Jaume) in the heart of Barcelona Old Town.

Then, make for La Rambla, the most famous street in all of Barcelona. Peruse the many food and flower stands before exploring the winding streets that snake off of the main boulevard.

4pm: End your tour at Plaça Sant Felip Neri, undoubtedly one of the city’s most charming and romantic squares. Take a seat at an outdoor terrace that was made famous by Woody Allen’s film Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Then, savor a glass of wine and have some fun reenacting scenes from the movie at the spot where the movie’s two lead characters, played by Scarlett Johansson and Rebecca Hall, ate lunch.

As the day draws to a close, say goodbye to your guide at the prearranged departure point.

Biel was a wonderful tour guide. We were delayed and he was very accommodating. He was very informed and added personal touches about his family and their history as well. He did an excellent job and we were delighted to have had him as our guide.

The guide was professional, arrived on time and looked for us. Every request was met. This excursion was very good, because it was only my husband and myself. She took us to a restaurant where the locals ate and it was delicious.

A bit too much quirk and political commentary for our taste
