Planning Your Visit
How many days should you spend in Barcelona?
There are plenty of fun things to do in Barcelona -- especially if you're also planning on partaking in the infamous nightlife scene. In three full days, you could visit all the major Gaudí sights, as well as the Picasso and Miró museums. You could also stay for a week or more. As for what to do with your extra days? Well, you'll have plenty of time to spend at the beach, visit the nearby village of Sitges, or go shopping in the Gothic Quarter.
What's the best way to get around town?
Barcelona is a wonderful city to explore by foot. You can easily stroll from La Rambla to the beach and then back to the Gothic Quarter in one afternoon. The city is pretty flat, so biking is an excellent option. If you love transportation, we suggest taking a trip to Tibidabo, the 1890s amusement park that overlooks the whole city. You'll take the metro, a tram, and a funicular -- and a ferris wheel ride, if that counts!
Which tours are the most fun?
We're glad you asked! From hot air balloon rides to bike tours to all-access guided walks of Gaudí masterpieces, there are a dozen options to spice up your Barcelona tourism. A lot of the architecture-based sightseeing is enhanced by the history and descriptions that a guide can offer you.

What people are saying about Barcelona
Exactly what was described for the 1/2 day tour. David was a wonderful and fun guide!!! From USA and I could understand our guide very well. Very informational and accommodating! Monserrat was beautiful and the vineyard was a great bonus. Tapas was at the vineyard and not a proper wine tasting, but it didn’t matter to us. 1/2 day was long enough.
Our guide Francesco was excellent. During the way to Montserrat he introduced us Barcelona. His historical knowledge was briliant. He expained us details of monastery from religious and geopolitical point of view. Organisation of spent time was perfect. We were hihgly satisfied and we can recommend him.
Jb was super nice and knowledgable! He cares about the safety of his clients and made sure we knew the basics before heading into the water. He helped me when I was struggling kayaking. He also brings a camera so you don’t have to worry about pictures yourself. I would highly recommend this day trip.
The perfect way to see Barcelona! The bikes are properly maintained and easy to use. Julia was excellent and take care of everybody (wait to be sure that all participants follow ).
The many countries we saw in only one day . We visited interesting places that we will remember forever .
