Explore Barcelona any way you want on a 4-hour, customizable private tour with an expert local guide. Choose a morning or afternoon tour, tell your guide your interests in advance, and enjoy an itinerary customized to your preferences. Traveling by air-conditioned vehicle and on foot, perhaps marvel at the astonishing La Sagrada Familia cathedral by Antoni Gaudi; discover the Roman and medieval secrets of the beautiful Gothic Quarter; and admire panoramic city views from Montjuic Hill — the choice is yours. Entrance fees, food and drink are at your own expense.


  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
  • Perfect introduction for first-time visitors
  • Private guide for a more personalized experience
  • Flexibility to customize your itinerary to your own preferences

Before your tour, your private guide will contact you to discuss what you want to do and see on your half-day tour. Agree your itinerary or leave it open for your guide to lead the way. All entrance fees, food and drinks during your tour are at your own expense.

On the day, meet your guide at your Barcelona hotel, hop inside your air-conditioned vehicle and drive to the first stop. As you travel, hear fascinating tales about Barcelona’s history and architecture and some of the famous figures who have shaped the city’s past and present.

Perhaps start at Barcelona’s most iconic sight: La Sagrada Familia. This surreal-looking cathedral was designed by the late, great Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi. Marvel at the famously unfinished masterpiece and hear how its construction, begun in 1882, isn’t due to be completed until 2026.

You may want to check out more of Gaudi’s mind-bending creations at Park Güell, with its playful ceramic sculptures and terraces. Or visit the stunning Casa Batlló or La Pedrera, otherwise known as the Casa Milà; two of his eye-popping decorative mansions on the Passeig de Gracia avenue.

Alternatively, focus on the older side of Barcelona. Drive to the atmospheric Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic), and stroll around the cobbled lanes to admire its Roman relics, medieval squares and 14th-century Barcelona Cathedral (Catedral La Seu). Continue to La Ramblas, the city’s colorful main shopping avenue with its tapas bars, street entertainers and flower markets.

If time allows, perhaps finish at Montjuic Hill, home to many of Barcelona’s 1992 Olympic arenas. Snap photos of the stadiums and soak up the awesome bird’s-eye views of the city from the summit.

After your explorations, your private tour ends with a drop-off at your hotel.

Sonia is a superstar. So knowledgeable and pleasant. We started at the Sagrada Familia. Sonia and Johan (the driver and also very nice) took us there at the start of the tour and we were able to buy tickets and enter the basilica. Amazing!. We then went to Park Guell which is another remarkably unique experience. We then went to Rambla Catalunia and visited Casa Mila, Casa Battlo and the Amatller Shop. The entire time Sonia was educating us about the area. Johan chatted with us about Barcelonan life as well. I just cannot express my thanks to both of them for a such a wonderful experience. To top it off, they drove us to the beach and recommended a great Paella restaurant right on the water. I would do this tour again, no questions asked!

We had a Spanish woman. Her name was Frances in English. She was so precious and knowledgeable about her town and took us to great spots. My teenage kids fell in love with her. The driver was also awesome. Highly recommend!

It was an excellent tour with our tour guide and her excellent driver. Since we had a limited time in Barcelona this was the perfect choice. It allowed us to taylor our sightseeing to what we wanted to cover.
