This was one of the highlights of our Barcelona trip! Our driver brought us everywhere we could possibly go and then some! The value of this trip is immense. We were able to see everything privately without a huge crowd with us. I 100% recommend this tour!

Reach one of Barcelona’s most famous features, the architectural work of Antoni Gaudí. Although you can see this fantastic display of art throughout different areas of the city, the best places to fully absorb its magnificence are 1La Sagrada Familia, the iconic attraction of the city. You may also want to take a short walk down the 2Passeig de Gracia to see two of Gaudí’s most iconic houses, La Pedrera and Casa Batlló. A bit further down you will marvel at the impressive 3Arc de Triomf and two of the city’s most famous squares: Plaza de España and 4Plaça de Catalunya, a sculpture-filled square full of lovely little shops and cafés. The highlight of Barcelona is 5La Rambla Street. The Spanish poet Federico García Lorca once said that La Rambla was "the only street in the world which I wish would never end." Your next stop is Barcelona’s famous 6Gothic Quarter. This neighborhood is full of ancient buildings from the Roman and medieval eras, making it a great place to take a break whilst marveling at the unbelievable architecture.
Heading towards the coast travelers stop by the marvelous 7National Palace and the 8Montjuic Hill. You will also drive past the famous Olympic Ring, where the 1992 Summer Olympics were held Your driver will then take you to the coastline for your last stops of the day, the lovely Olympic and Vell ports. Both ports have stunning sea views and amazing traditional architecture. It is recommended to finish your ride at the highest point in Barcelona, Tibidabo Hill, standing a gigantic 512 meters high. From the top of this stunning mountain, you will get a spectacular 360° views of the entire city or you may visit the colorful 9Park Güell.

The driver was timely in meeting our cruise ship, very helpful with luggage for 4, was very familiar with the Highlights most want to see, helped with photo ops, plus altered his usual route to take us by some other places we wanted to see before dropping us off at our hotel! Great experience!
We were very happy with the Barcelona Half Day Tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly.

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.
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.
