Our most recommended things to do in Catalonia
1. Barcelona: Sagrada Familia Fast-Track Access Ticket
Explore Antoni Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia, with a convenient fast track entrance ticket. Gaudi's iconic work draws hundreds of locals and visitors alike to its impressive facades and awe-inspiring interior every day, making it one of the most visited monuments in Spain. Walk past the notorious long queues and start discovering the beautiful basilica at your own pace with an optional audio guide; admire the facades, interior, museum, and school. Work began on creating the true symbol of Barcelona back in 1882, and the Sagrada Familia remains a work in progress even today. Although unfinished, the basilica is by no means unworthy of a visit. A combination of Gothic and Art Nouveau forms, the UNESCO-listed structure dominates the Barcelona skyline.
Took a little bit to figure out the audio but once o did all was well. Fabulous cathedral!

Great experience to be able to ride on the bus and see all the sights in one shot. I did a two day and opted to do one line on one day and the other line the next day. Also convenient when you’re exploring different sights.
4. Barcelona Aquarium: Skip-the-Line Admission Ticket

It was very good experience! Kind stuff. The disadvanteges was that the price of the photograph that took us was 7€ properly but they charged us 12€ because it was compelled to take and a leaflet that explain the kind of fish tha we saw in the aquarium. Tricky...
5. Costa Daurada: Catamaran Tour and Snorkeling
Sail across the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean by catamaran along the beautiful Costa Daurada. Be on the lookout for caves hidden between the sandy beaches. The captain will drop anchor off the coast so you can enjoy some time swimming. Snorkel around the boat, exploring the underwater life or sunbathe on the deck if you prefer. Afterwards, the catamaran will sail back to Cambrils. Choose from 3 different options: a 3-hour cruise with snacks and drinks; a 3-hour cruise with drinks only; or a 5-hour cruise with a barbecue and drinks.
Good experience but there was no option to do the snorkeling. It was relaxing and I enjoyed the bath. The drinks were good and the workers were nice but we thought we could do snorkeling (as it appears in the name of the activity) and they stop far from the seashore so it's impossible to see anything under the water.
6. PortAventura & Ferrari Land Tickets: 1, 2, or 3-Day Entry
Enjoy 1, 2, or 3 days of thrills with a ticket to 2 amazing parks, meet fascinating characters, explore mysterious ruins in far away lands, feel like a real cowboy or cowgirl, embark on amazing adventures and make your dreams come true.

Explore PortAventura's third theme park dedicated to the prestigious Italian firm Ferrari.

It's an awesome thing but if you are there only for one day and want to do all the big rides, you will probably need a fastpass.
7. Barcelona: Park Güell Admission Ticket
Visit Park Güell with your timed admission ticket and explore the unique site at your own pace. Marvel at Antoni Gaudí's colorful mosaic art such as the Dragon Stairway with its world-famous salamander. Have a break from the city life while strolling through the green Austria Gardens and take stunning photos of Barcelona from the park's viewing points. The plan for the park was assigned to Gaudí by Eusebi Güell, a Catalan entrepreneur who wanted to recreate a British residential park on Muntanya Pelada (Bare Mountain). It was opened as a municipal park in 1926, recognized as an artistic monument in 1969 and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. While you have to enter the park at your booked time slot, you can stay for as long as you like after and take it all in.
Fra le tante opere di Gaudí è quella che mi ha meno colpito, anche se vale comunque la visita. Un consiglio per fotografi, di mattina si avrà sempre il sole contro. L'unica parte che ne beneficia è la scala dei draghi (che è anche la zona più famosa).
8. Hola BCN: 48, 72, 96, or 120-Hour Public Transport Ticket

9. Barcelona: Casa Batlló 10D Experience

Delight in a unique experience of one of the masterpieces of Antoni Gaudí, an architecture and design legend.

Among the novelties on offer, discover a new core of vertical communication designed by the ...
The house was beautiful! I enjoyed listening to the headsets telling me about each room. It's cool because it moved where you moved. If you wanted to go back to a different room, it would start there. It let you wander around at your own pace. The room at the end was amazing. It was a great experience. I gave it 4 stars because it would have been nice to know you needed to download the app to show your ticket. Maybe it did and I just didn't see it.
10. Lloret de Mar: Catamaran Sailing Experience with BBQ
Enjoy the ultimate day of fun in the sun with a sailing trip along the Costa Brava. Climb aboard a beautiful catamaran in Lloret de Mar and set sail. Lie in the big net bow area and feel the sensation of floating over the sea while listening to music and having a drink. After 1 hour of sailing past the stunning landscape of cliffs, caves, secluded beaches and fishing villages, the boat will stop at a quiet spot. Swim in a small inlet, play on the giant floating mattress, or go snorkeling in the beautiful waters. Top off the experience with complimentary drinks including beer, sangria, soft drinks, and water. Return to Lloret de Mar with the music turned up, as you soak in the atmosphere.
It was an amazing trip. The staff were fantastic, the barbecue with the music on the boat whilst we were stopped was so much fun and the atmosphere on the boat was brilliant. If i ever come again i will deffo be repeating!

What people are saying about Catalonia
Brilliant tour great guide (Sarah) very knowledgable and perfect English. The added photos and video of the Game Throne Scenes and how they where altered to 'hide' any modern infrastructure and edited during production was very interesting. Learning about the history of Girona was also interesting, especially the on off relationship with the French
Sadly I cannot remember my tour guide’s name. I believe it is Jason. Regardless, of his name, he connected very well with everyone from the group. He was extremely accommodating considering my shellfish allergy. Truthfully, this class and tour were a highlight of my trip!! And if you are considering wit, don’t just do it and thank me later :)
