Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, Carrer de Mallorca, 401, 08013 Barcelona Spain

The famous work in progress from Antoni Gaudi and one of Barcelona's iconic landmarks. We will discuss it from the outside and if you have booked at ticket in advance (as we will discuss well in advance of your trip) then you can go inside for a visit (visits are approx. 1-3 hours).

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Parc Guell, Carrer d'Olot, 5, 08024 Barcelona Spain

Another of Gaudi's famous landmarks which is a fantastical park known for its colorful mosaic tiles. We can walk around from the outside but it is well worth a visit into the monumental part, which is best reserved in advance (also to be discussed upon booking in order to determine reservation details). From the outside the visit lasts around 30 minutes, but if you go inside it's closer to a full hour.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic), Mediterranean Seafront to Ronda de Sant Pere, Ciutat Vella, 08002 Barcelona Spain

Take a journey through Barcelona's multiple layers of history learning about the Roman and medieval histories, cultural legends and traditions, and see how it fits in with the modern elements of present day. Depending on our determined itinerary, we can breeze through a few of the main sites in the Gothic quarter, or we can do an exclusive tour seeing all of the main points. Duration can range from 45 minutes to 3 hours.

All points are without entry fee.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Barcelona Cathedral, Pla de la Seu, S/N, 08002 Barcelona Spain

Jump into nature without leaving the city! The famous hill at the side of the city hosts various famous landmarks such as the Castle of Montjuic, the Olympic stadium, and the Palace as well as many hidden gems. We can arrange an itinerary to view the top important spots or to explore it in further detail. Due to the distance from the rest of things, Montjuic usually takes up a bit of time from the day, so the "duration" could range from 1 hour to 4 hours if you want to walk around by foot to various points.

Duration: 2 hours

Kimberly’s tour was a great way to start my stay. I learned little stories about the gothic area, but what was most important to me was getting recommendations for other places to see and do in the city when I was there. Another event reservation that I had scheduled for later
