We start our tour with a drive to the famous hill of Montjuïc, which offers excellent views over the city and was the site of the 1992 Olympic games.

After a brief stop at the Catalunya National Art Museum (MNAC) we will make our way down to Plaça Espanya and on past the Modernist buildings of the Eixample area.

Our drive to the iconic Sagráda Famlia will take us up Passeig de Gracia, home to the famous designer stores, and the setting for two of Barcelona’s most talked about Gaudí buildings: La Pedrera and Casa Batlló.

Before arriving at the Sagrda Famìlia, we will stop at the Hospital de Sant pau I de Santes Creus, built between 1901 and 1930. Well away from the tourist route, this hospital has been declared a ‘UNESCO World Heritage Site’ and is one of the greatest symbols of the Modernist Architecture in Barcelona.

Finally, we will arrive at Sagráda Famìlia, stopping there for a visit inside the building. Our ‘’Skip the Line’ policy means entrance tickets will have been pre-purchased and there will no NO QUEUES!

For many, this is the highlight of their Barcelona experience. The group will then head to the oldest part of Barcelona, the Barrio Gótico, which, as late, the mid 19th century was still surrounded by the Mediaeval walls.

At this point, we will leave the bus and enjoy a stroll through the narrow winding streets of mediaeval Barcelona. At the start of our short walk through the historic streets of Barcelona, we will stop for a complimentary glass of the famous local Cava and a selection of tradional ‘tapas’.

From there, we will travel back in time, going from the Roman era through to the early Middle Ages, when the Catalan counts were controlling the Mediterranean sea and Barcelona was the capital of an empire.

During this part of the tour, we will also visit the Jewish Quarter, the Royal palace, the original 2000 year old Roman Temple and part of the Cathedral.

After a quick lunch, we head straight to Park Güell, the famous city garden designed by Anton Gaudí.

The guide will lead you down through the park explaining the garden concept and introducing you to some of Gaudí’s most bizarre creations.

From the Park we head straight to one of the most famous Gaudí buildings of them all: La Pedrera. We will have an hour here to visit inside the building.

Our ‘Skip the Line’ policy means that there is no waiting in queues! The tour ends here at around 4pm.
