One-day visit to Barcelona with a private guide

Imagine a sunny day, a city to discover and a private local guide only for your group.
Imagine discovering Barcelona while enjoying yourself, step by step.

You will start this one-day visit to Barcelona while walking through the Gothic Quarter. We propose to you to go through the original Barcelona, ​​that which was born with the Romans and that still keeps the same layout of the streets.
You will discover the fascinating history of this singular city while deciphering the facade of the Cathedral, trampling the King’s Square, while browsing the old Jewish Quarter, Montcada Street and Santa Maria del Mar.
You will visit the Market St. Catherine just before luch. It’s the perfect time to discover the local gastronomy.
After lunch, a fantastic stoll with your private guide will take you to Passeig de Gracia in order to admire facades such as Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. The explanations full of anecdotes will help you to understand the historical, economic and social moment of the early 20th century.

The one-day visit to Barcelona will end with a visit to Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia.

How is the visit of the Old Barcelona?

It is a walking tour. In fact, most of the streets of the Gothic Quarter and Ribera are pedestrianized. In addition, it is a place with a density of elements to know important. As this is a private tour, if you feel like resting a bit, there are places where during the explanations you will be seated or we can stop for a small snack.
The highlights of the visit to the Gothic Quarter are the exterior of the Cathedral, the King’s Square, the old Jewish Quarter, the Sant Jaume Square and the remains of the Roman Wall.
To change neighborhood we will use either the subway (do not worry, this is clean and safe) or a taxi.


Will we visit the interior of the Sagrada Familia?

Absolutely. The icing on the cake of  this day in Barcelona is a guided tour inside the Sagrada Familia. You will see that at the end of the booking process, the amount of the tickets is added. We do this to buy tickets from the Sagrada Familia in advance to avoid capacity problems. In addition, on the day of the visit you will use the entrance reserved for guides. That means no lines.

Once inside, thanks to the explanations of your guide of Barcelona you will decipher the facades of the Nativity and that of the Passion, you will marvel with the light and understand the shapes of the columns. A visit to the schools designed by Antoni Gaudi will show you his social side.

A single day in the city is short to explore the sights of the city … especially if you are trying to do it yourself: streets to navigate, lines to queue, too much planning before your trip just to get stressed out trying to cover everything you thought you had time to do.
Instead, with a private English speaking guide, you can cover not twice but three times as much as you would, passing lines and leaving the focus and planning to us. In addition, you receive attention and personalized explanations, and you can see many details that you would have missed by yourself.

Anna was great. We toured with 2 adults and a 13 year old. She answered every question, gave a great overview and knew everything about the cathedral. Her english is excellent and she made learning fun. I would highly recommend to everyone for her vast knowledge of Barcelona and the cathedral.
