Tour description

Do you have just one day to visit Barcelona? You will meet our private driver with VIP car/minivan and enthusiasitc and knowledgeable private guide at the cruise terminal or your hotel and start your exciting 6 hours discovery of Barcelona and its wonders in the hands of a local. You will enjoy skip the line entrance to the Sagrada Familia to save you valuable time queueing. This tour is perfect for cruisers and for all those who have very limited time in the Catalan capital!

You will start with a panoramic tour of the highlights of Barcelona and be able to hit the greatest sites of this spectacular and vibrant city.  Barcelona is a fascinating mixture between modern iconic buildings and traditional neighborhoods. You will see Gaudi’s most famous masterpieces, like the Sagrada Familia (inside) and Casa Batlló and Casa Mila (from outside). Gaudi’s architecture has embellished Barcelona, making it a truly one-of-a-kind city. With the help of your guide's stories and annecdotes, you will discover all about Gaudi’s works and why his architecture is so special and unique. Antoni Gaudí helped bring the architecture of this region to worldwide fame and reputation. He was also a brilliant architect and designer and managed to create a unique mix of artistic tradition and new technical solutions, combining creative and plastic elements in his buildings.

You will then switch from the Modernist to the Medieval, continuing your tour in the Gothic Quarter, the oldest and most picturesque district of Barcelona. You will head to Las Ramblas, the main historical street that connects Catalunya square with the Columbus’ Monument and, accompanied by your private guide, you will soak up its fun, vibrant atmosphere. Next you will visit the Palace of Music, Barcelona’s impressive concert hall designed in the Modernist style.

Your next stop will be the local market where you will really be able to take in the smells and flavors of Barcelona, and perhaps even taste some local specialties recommended to you by your guide! Your guide is a local and will be also able to suggest to places for lunch, those where locals eat their food, avoiding overcrowded tourist traps and tasting the real catalan flavours! Afterwards you will proceed to Montjuic Hill where you will admire a wonderful panoramic view of the city and see the striking Olympic stadium. This tour is perfect for those who are visiting Barcelona for the first time and are looking for an orientation of this enthralling city. At the end of the tour your private driver will escort you back to Barcelona port in time to resume your cruise. If you are staying in Barcelona, he will of course be able to accompany you to any hotel in the city centre.
