Take an intimate sightseeing tour of Barcelona during this fully-customizable, half-day private guided tour. This easily personalized excursion is the perfect way to check out the iconic city of Barcelona with an knowledgable guide and private transport, customizing your visit to match your interests.

Start your private guided tour of Barcelona by meeting your guide at your hotel at a pre-arranged time that matches your schedule. Then climb into your private vehicle as you make your way to your first stop of the day. Feel free to select the sites you'll visit during your trip, or let the guide select your day's planned stops and attractions. Along the way, immerse yourself in the fascinating history and intriguing architecture and colorful characters of Barcelona as your guide shares stories and details about the city's past.

Your tour might take you to the renowned Sagrada Familia cathedral, designed by the world-famous architect Antoni Gaudí. This sprawling religious structure is still under construction more than 130 years after work began. Or head to Gaudí's popular Park Güell, a colorful park bedecked in detailed ceramic tilework set in the hills above Barcelona. You might also check out Gaudí's two most iconic houses, Casa Batlló or La Pedrera, which line Barcelona's Passeig de Gracia boulevard.

History lovers might choose to focus on the city's atmospheric Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic), where you can walk among the ancient buildings and walls dating from the Roman and medieval era and see the intricate 14th-century Barcelona Cathedral (Catedral La Seu). Or head to the famous walking promenade La Rambla, where you can check out the many street performers, tapas bars and stores that line its busy streets. The choice is up to you.

Two more options include the famous Montjuic Mountain, offering great city views and the chance to see many structures built for the 1992 Olympic Games, as well as the Picasso Museum, which hosts an impressive collection of the artist's work.

Please note, some monuments such as the Cathedral, Casa Batlló, Casa Mila, Sagrada Familia and Picasso Museum may require entrance fees, which are not included in the cost of this tour.

Guide was VERY knowledgeable, but tried to cram in everything, leaving little time for feedback & questions. A few persons in our group had a hard time understanding her English.

an astounding trip to el salgado familia

We didn't go to this tour expecting that much, but we were amazed at how many details we learned with Miguel as our tour guide. We went to several places around the city but it was el salgado familia that drew our hearts and imagination. Miguel was very informed of so many city details and as we were in Barcelona during a historical heat wave the door to door service was much appreciated.

Fantastic! Sonia is brilliant!

Sonia is a superstar. So knowledgeable and pleasant. We started at the Sagrada Familia. Sonia and Johan (the driver and also very nice) took us there at the start of the tour and we were able to buy tickets and enter the basilica. Amazing!. We then went to Park Guell which is another remarkably unique experience. We then went to Rambla Catalunia and visited Casa Mila, Casa Battlo and the Amatller Shop. The entire time Sonia was educating us about the area. Johan chatted with us about Barcelonan life as well. I just cannot express my thanks to both of them for a such a wonderful experience. To top it off, they drove us to the beach and recommended a great Paella restaurant right on the water. I would do this tour again, no questions asked!

We had a Spanish woman. Her name was Frances in English. She was so precious and knowledgeable about her town and took us to great spots. My teenage kids fell in love with her. The driver was also awesome. Highly recommend!

I thought the tour guide was very knowledgeable, however, after reading all the reviews I was expecting the tour guide's English to be a bit better. He was fairly hard to understand and he even commented that he typically did tours for groups that spoke Spanish, so I'm not sure why he was assigned as our guide. Additionally, the Viator site specifically stated that the tour company would contact me in advance to discuss a customized tour, however, they didn't, so we basically just went only to the places that he wanted to take us as, again, it was too difficult to explain to him where we wanted to go due to the translation/language barrier.

Sonja was great. Very flexible. Let us choose what we wanted to see. After that, she had some very good suggestions. We really enjoyed the views from Montjuic. Much better than the Sagrada view.
