If it’s your first visit, this is the best way to get an overview of the city because I designed the Barcelona highlights tour to make the most of your time and not miss any of the main sights.
The tour will start wherever you choose. A private driver and I will pick you up and drop you off wherever you want. The Barcelona highlights tour is like a hop-on-hop-off driving tour, and all visits are from the outside. Although, you can always add tickets to the monuments you want upon request and customize the itinerary.
A standard tour could start in the Eixample, enjoying a panoramic view of the modern part of the city, then reach La Sagrada Família. The famous church designed by Antoni Gaudí, which is still under construction, the symbol of the city. I can show you the best place to take amazing photos, and I will tell you everything you need to know about this unique monument.
We will continue to Passeig de Gràcia, the most luxurious and elegant avenue in Barcelona, famous for its astonishing buildings. Here, Gaudí built two other monuments: La Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. We can walk along this boulevard on foot or by car. This neighborhood is like an open‐air museum of architecture and the best place to discover Modernism, the Catalan Art Nouveau style.
Another unavoidable stop is the Montjuïc Park. From the top of the hill the views over the city are spectacular. There you can visit the Olympic Stadium, the Museu Nacional d’art de Catalunya located in the Palau Nacional and the fountains of Plaça Espanya. The itinerary continues bordering the oldest part of the city, by the Passeig de Colom in front of the sea, we will see the old harbor and the Port Olímpic, the Ciutadella Park, and the original Arc de Triomf, gate, and symbol of the Universal Exhibition of 1888.
The itinerary could end, for example, at Catalonia square, the nerve center of the city. From there you can continue on your own to stroll along Las Ramblas, visit the Boqueria Market, or go shopping. If you prefer, you can complete this tour with a walking tour of the Gothic Quarter.
If you want to discover the best of the city while making the most of your time, the Barcelona highlights tour is ideal for you.
We will have a professional driver and a luxury car or van at our disposal, to take us to the places you want to visit. This saves a lot of time and we can cover a larger part of the city.
Of course, all my tours are private and personalized, so we can use the car to see the places that interest you the most.
All my tours are accessible for people with walking issues or wheelchair.
Absolutely, you can add extra hours, or choose to do a full day tour.
Official guides can skip the line and get last minute tickets at almost all tourist attractions. But it will always depend on the availability of admission at that moment. It is always better to book tickets in advance to avoid any disappointment.
The price of the Barcelona Highlights tour is starting at 210€. The prices are for your total party, not per person. Entrance fees or other extra expenses (like food, drinks, or transport) are not included. Because each visit is customized contact me for a precise budget.
