Custom Private Barcelona Tours Designed to Your Preferences
Private Barcelona Tours Include: Our private Barcelona tours includes service of private tour guide, private transportation to sites and to and from your hotel, entrance to sights visited.
Our private Barcelona tours offer the best of two worlds: a driving tour in the morning to visit the sites best reached by private transport, and an afternoon walking tour of the Old Town (Casc Antic), a pedestrian-only area.
Our private Barcelona tours start with a morning driving tour that will take you along Barcelona’s main avenues and landmarks, including Plaza de Espanya, Gran Vía, Montjuïc hill, the Rambla, the Arenas and Monumental bullrings, Arc de Triomf and the seafront, making stops at the most important sights en route.
Our private Barcelona tours also features an in-depth visit of Barcelona’s main monument and architect Gaudí’s most spectacular masterpiece: the Sagrada Familia church. Gaudi worked on this controversial piece of architecture combining Gothic and curvilinear forms in a series of 18 towers for nearly 50 years, yet it remains unfinished today. You will have the option to visit the interior: our licensed guides have preferential access so you can decide in the moment.
After lunch at a place of your choosing, your private tour guide in Barcelona will take you for a leisurely-paced walking tour through the Barri Gotic – Old Town. Literally lying over the early Roman settlement, the historical district still retains the focal points of Barcelona’s religious and political life: the Gothic Cathedral, the Bishop’s and Archdeacon’s palaces, Pça. del Rei (former site of the Royal Palace), the Roman walls and aqueduct, Pça. Sant Jaume with the Generalitat and City Hall buildings, and the former Jewish Quarter. If of interest, your guide can also show you the Jewish heritage sites in more depth here.
After visiting the historical landmarks, your guide will take you to the Born district to see another side of the Casc Antic. Previously a merchants’ quarter, today the Born’s narrow streets are lined with trendy boutiques, cafés and restaurants, museums and art galleries. This is a perfect spot to end the tour, as you will want to linger on for a drink, tapas and window-shopping.
