Barcelona Highlights and Hidden Gems Private Walking Tour
- Small group
- Duration options: 1.5 - 3 hours
The body of work by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí falls somewhere between real and imagined, deep in history and living in present. These buildings are the must-sees of Barcelona for everyone everywhere, not just the architecture buff, not just in Spain.
The church was Gaudí’s masterpiece and was only a quarter complete when he died at 73. Completion is estimated about a decade from now, a century after the master’s death.
Palau Güell was the palace of Gaudí’s greatest commissioner, industrialist Eusebi Güell. It is known for its ornate iron gate entrance for horse-drawn carriages.
Inspired by natural movement, Gaudi's house is more sculpture than structure. Moving through it feels like exploring a cave, an experience both modern and organic.
This surreal wonderland showcases the variety of Gaudí’s virtuoso. Arrive early to beat the crowds; chances are you’ll still catch some Spanish guitar on the steps.
Locals refer to the property as the House of Bones, and a visit to the site with its dragon scale roof is a must!
Many of the buildings will have long lines, especially the Sagrada Familia. Do yourself a favor and buy the tickets online far ahead of time. Park Güell will assign you a specific time to enter, which makes the experience more serene and worthwhile for everyone.
It’s pretty easy to navigate. Instead of buying each trip individually, purchase the 10-trip ticket and share it among your travel buddies. It’s much cheaper, nearly 10 trips for 10 euro.
Donatella was an awesome tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and extremely enthusiastic about the history of Barcelona. We very much enjoyed the tour. The first part of the tour from the meeting point to the train to the cable car was a bit of a long walk, however we went through the local food market along the way and learned about some of the foods available in the area.
Tour guide was very knowledgeable and took us though the streets of. Barcelona and explained about different areas and what some of the street art stood for Fantastic views and very interesting
