About the ride

If you are short on time but still want to see the most popular sites in Barcelona, then the ‘Barcelona Highlights tour’ is the one for you. The neighborhoods and landmarks in Barcelona are all very far apart, so make sure you have the time to see them all by experiencing this spectacular city from the comfort of your very own private air-conditioned car.

  • Hotel pickup and dropoff from a professional English Speaking driver / Local Guide
  • 100% Customisable & Private

At your chosen time, your Welcome driver will pick you up from your accommodation and take you on your fully personalized tour of Barcelona. As the tour is completely customizable, you can add and take points away from the following suggested itinerary.

You will start your tour on the beautiful coastline of Barcelona, where you will visit two of the city’s most iconic ports: the Olimpic Port and Vell Port. Each of these ports has exceptionally stunning ocean views and amazing traditional architecture. After you have visited the city’s sea life, you will then take the beautiful Plaza Catalunya, passing the iconic 2Arc de Triomf and Columbus Monument. This traditional plaza is a favorite of the locals and is home to many historical statues and fountains. 

Your driver will then take you to the ever-popular Olympic Ring, a stadium built to house the 1992 Summer Olympics, and then on to the Jewish Quarter. In this area of Barcelona, you will find the 8National Palace, and one of the city’s most popular squares, Plaza de España. This is a great place to take a lunch break in one of the many tapas restaurants available in the plaza or to ask your driver for some personal restaurant recommendations. 

Next, you will head down the largest road in Barcelona, Avenida Diagonal, to the famous 6Gothic Quarter. This neighborhood is full of ancient buildings from the Roman and medieval eras, making it a great place to walk off your lunch and marvel at the unbelievable architecture. Just a short drive away is Passeig de Gracia where you will find two of Gaudí’s most iconic houses, La Pedrera and Casa Batlló.

After your taste of the modernist architecture, your driver will take you up to the hills of Barcelona to visit 1La Sagrada Familia and Park Güell to see Gaudí’s most famous work. Stepping into Park Güell is like walking into a bright fairytale, with colorful, abstract buildings all around. Skip the lines at these parks by asking your driver for tickets. From here you may want to take a look at some of the other modernista architecture in Barcelona. A must see is the beautiful Casa Amatller, designed by Josep Puig I Cadafalch for the city’s most prestigious chocolatier in 1898.

Your friendly driver will not only share historical facts about the areas visited but also local insights that will help you get the feeling of the city’s and country’s lifestyle.

After you have soaked up all the beautiful tiled artwork of Barcelona, you will then return to your Welcome car, and your driver will drop you safely back at your accommodation.

We were very happy with the Barcelona Half Day Tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We visited assorted City landmarks including Park Guell and La Sagrada Familia and they even offered to drop us off wherever we liked in the city. I would definitely recommend this tour. We also tried the best Tapas in town!!!

Frequently asked questions

What happens after I book?

Once you complete your booking you will receive an email with more details about the Barcelona Highlights tour, your Welcome driver, and any more information you need to know regarding this experience. Feel free to reach out to our customer service team at hello@welcomepickups.com for any specific questions regarding the experience.

Can I customize the tour based on my needs?

Of course, that is one of the main benefits of having a Welcome experience. You can customize every last bit of the experience, from points of visit to time spent per landmark to adding in an extra food stop.

Will there be an official tour guide?

An official tour guide is not included because the overall experience is centered around the driver and the local’s perspective. Although the drivers are very knowledgeable regarding the points of visit, at no point can they be compared with a licensed tour guide who can give more in depth information regarding historic facts and information. If you would like to include an official tour guide in the experience please let us know via email after the booking is completed.

Do I need to be in a good physical shape?

The drivers are trained to adapt the experience depending on the type of participants. Whether you have kids or elders participating, the drivers know exactly how to handle special requests and provide an enjoyable experience accordingly.

Useful tips

Dress Code

Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes and be equipped with wet weather gear if rain is expected. In addition, please note that religious sites require modest attire- knees and shoulders must be covered.


We strongly recommend booking any entrance tickets in advance. You can ask your Welcome driver about prices, times and general information on tickets.


In the summer months be sure to wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and perhaps a hat, to shield yourself from the sun. We also recommend staying hydrated throughout the tour with the water provided.


Bring cash in the form of local currency (Euros), as many of the local vendors don’t accept card payments.


Please let us know if anyone in your group has special needs, or specific accessibility requirements, and we will be sure to accommodate your needs and tailor the tour accordingly.
