Planning Your Visit

  • Seating limit

    Please note that in the Montjuic cable car seating is limited to eight people per car.

  • Local lingo

    Barcelona's status as capital of Catalonia means that the official language is Catalan. If you already know some Spanish or French, it'll be easy to learn a few Catalan words - locals will be very happy to hear you try!

  • Sun safety

    It's easy to forget sun safety when you're having fun, but remember to keep reapplying sunscreen - especially if you're active outdoors!

  • Get more for your money

    If you think you'll be sampling a lot of museums in Barcelona, why not look into a ticket that will give you discounted entry to a few museums or skip-the-line privileges?

Beautiful scenery, mountains, oceans, villages and an amazing guide. I am terrible with names but I think it was Enrique? Was forecasted to rain the day we went but was perfect in Pals & Costa Brava, we didn’t get rain until Girona then it was only for 30 minutes or so. Definitely a must do trip for anyone wanting to see as much of Spain as they can.

Wunderschöner Ausblick bei gemütlicher Fahrt, das Geld absolut wert! Oben angekommen auch wunderschöne Burg zu besichtigen!

The tour was great to see everything important about Barcelona and to get an impression of the city.

worth doing to see the sights from up high for sure, best way to get to the Castle

In such a big city a good thing to get an overview of.
