Meet your guide in central Barcelona, hop aboard your coach, and travel to Plaça de Catalunya to disembark for a stroll. Work your way around the square’s beautiful fountains and statues, before wandering along the narrow medieval streets of Barri Gòtic. Pass Barcelona Cathedral as you continue to Plaça Sant Jaume, where the Palace of Generalitat and the Town Hall are found.
Next, hop back on board your coach and take in views of the Mediterranean Sea lapping Barcelona’s coastline on the way to the Olympic village, home to Port Olympic and the Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium.
After a tour of the stadium, travel up to the summit of Montjuic hill for panoramic views of the city and its bustling harbor. Admire sights of Palau Sant Jordi and Calatrava Tower, and then visit the Spanish Village to see typical architecture and traditional crafts from different regions of Spain. While there, enjoy a sample of cava — the local sparkling wine.
Finish your morning with a cable car ride up to Montjuic Castle for more views of Barcelona’s stunning skyline, and then travel back down the hill by coach to central Barcelona. Bid your guide farewell, and enjoy roughly 2 hours at leisure before your afternoon tour starts.
Artistic Barcelona Including Gaudi’s La Sagrada Familia and Skip-the-Line Entry to Park Güell: (4.5 hours)
After meeting your guide in central Barcelona, set off on your afternoon tour with a stroll to La Sagrada Familia, one of Gaudi’s most famous works. Work your way around the exterior of the UNESCO-listed cathedral, gazing up at its sky-piercing spires, as your guide explains some of the standout highlights of the monument’s architecture and history.
From the cathedral, follow your guide to Park Güell, an extensive garden complex located on the hill of El Carmel that was also designed by Gaudi. Known for its architectural features with mosaic terraces, curved walls and eye-catching sculptures, the park attracts lengthy entrance lines. Skip past the lines with your fast-track ticket and head inside to explore the pretty walkways and leafy parkland with your guide.
Continue with a stroll down Passeig de Gràcia, the street that’s home to two more Gaudi works of art: Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. Learn how the buildings were designed as lavish private residences while posing for photos in front of them, and then bid your guide a fond farewell as your Super Saver finishes.

Fantastic tour and great value for money - I would highly recommend it! You are not stuck on a bus for the day....the coach (which is airconditioned and very comfortable) is just a means of bringing you to all the locations. Absolutely thrilled with the inclusion of walking tours during the day - Gothic quarter, Spanish village, Gaudi park. We also had sufficient free time to explore on our own - for example, the cable car ride. Both tour guides were very friendly and knowledgeable of all sights, however, the afternoon guide's English needs a little improvement (difficult to understand what she was telling us about Artistic Barcelona at times).

This is just a must, to see the wonderful sights of Barcelona. This is a pretty extensive tour giving an insight in the famous architect Gaudi and the various sights. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, as we have found all the Viator tour guides have been.
On this tour, there is no time to see t he inside of Sagrada Familia, only the outside, so it is absolutely necessary to take an exclusive skip the lines tour of the Basilica as well, which we did so it was all perfect.
