Tours Of The City
Throughout Barcelona there are numerous fantastic sights to see and areas to explore. Sometimes it can be a bit daunting to organise yourself to make sure you see absolutely everything that peaks your interest so you can take advantage of some of the amazing city tours to help you get a real feel for the city – and you can go one further and book a private tour that encompasses private pick up and drop off from your hotel as well as your own guide for the duration of the tour through the streets and sights of the city.
Private transport is included and you might find yourself learning a little something extra that those on public tours might not get to. There are additionally a plethora of group tours available for those who are happy to rub elbows with other fellow tourists. Most tours include the major sights of Barcelona such as Park Guell, Sagrada Familia and Gaudi’s House as well as some of the other districts like Las Ramblas. Tours including Montserrat and other areas away from the city can be arranged as well.
A private shopping tour through El Born is simply one of the best ways to get a glimpse of true Barcelona culture and experience ‘behind the scenes’ of the artisans who create beautiful works of art that are available for purchase. A private tour through this shopping district will allow you to meet the artisans themselves and get a peek inside their studios where the creative process takes place. Pick up a souvenir for yourself or someone you love and know you are truly making a difference in the lives of these artists who have devoted their lives to the development of Catalan art and culture.

No trip to the region is complete without seeing all the sights of the city and beyond. You might find yourself surprised at just what you learn and see! So come check out Barcelona – you will leave enchanted.
