What to Expect
Meet your guide and small group at a central pickup point, where you board a tour vehicle and watch the urban scenery speed by on the ride to Montjuïc Hill. As you take in sweeping views of the city, get oriented to its geography and hear about the history of the 1992 Olympics from your guide. Stop at the Catalunya National Art Musuem on the way down Passeig de Gracia, admiring Plaça Espanya, LaPedrera, and Gaudi’s Casa Batlló. With the small-group tour’s intimate atmosphere, you have plenty of time to ask questions and hear the history of these Barcelona landmarks. Arrive at La Sagrada Familia, and follow your guide past the waiting crowds and use your priority access tickets for hassle-free entry. After an orientation, spend some free time exploring on your own, then come back together with your group to ask questions before heading on to the Gothic Quarter and the Jewish Quarter for a stroll among buildings that represent the city’s medieval heritage and Jewish history. End up in the Born district, where you part with your group. Feel free to sit down for lunch at one of the many restaurants; your guide is happy to provide a recommendation. Upgrade your tour to continue with entrance to La Pedrera and Park Güell, which spans a full day of exploring and learning from your guide.

I had a great tour of Barcelona with a small group and our guide Sergio. He was very well prepared and gave us a lot of information in the places we visited. We also had enough free time at the Sagrada Familia to enjoy the place after the guided part of it.
