Si scoprono l'esuberanza e la bellezza di Barcellona in un tour mattutino di 4 ore e mezza di questa splendida città catalana. Perfetto per i visitatori alla prima visita, questo tour è l'introduzione ideale per visitare le famose attrazioni di Barcellona, tra cui un tour panoramico dal pullman del Passeig de Gracia dove si potranno vedere tutti i famosi edifici di Gaudi, il Villaggio Olimpico (Vila Olimpica) e la bellissima Montjuïc. Goditi una gita in funivia, visita il Villaggio Spagnolo (Poble Espanyol) e termina questa esperienza con un tour a piedi attraverso il centro storico della città di Barcellona.
Took this tour at the end of a cruise as a general city tour to get oriented and discover Barcelona. It was just what we wanted. Travelling with spouse and 2 friends, we found it informative, enjoyable and just right! Our guide was Marta who was instantly engaging, informative obviously knew and loved Barcelona. The cable car ride was spectacular!
During the walking tour of the Gothic Quarter, Marta negotiated our way through crowed, busy areas. There was a fair/festival going on in front of the old cathedral, so Marta took the time to stop and explain certain things that were going on, e.g. a local band playing traditional Catalan music and spontaneous dancing by locals. Marta was very knowledgeable and answered questions very directly and succinctly. She moved things along. I commend her especially being able to lead the tour in the Gothic Quarter with the crowds, but making sure that we were/felt safe. We were in Barcelona the weekend of Oct 21-23 when there were lots of crowds demonstrating on behave of the Catalonian cause.
I highly recommend this tour!
This tour was awesome. The guide was lovely, very knowledgeable and keep our interest with great stories about the visited sights. We did the whole city tour in a luxury coach bus that was not crowded, so almost everybody had a place near the window to admire the city while the guide described the places.
The coach bus left us on top of the Montjuic mountain where we admired the Castle the castle inside visit is not included and then we took the Montjuïc Cable Car Telefèric de Montjuic all the way down while admiring Barcelona from the gondola. Amazing view!
Took the coach bus and we stopped and visited the Olympic Stadium and surroundings.
Back in the coach bus and we stopped at the Spanish Village Poble Espanyol to discover the architecture and crafts typical of the various regions of Spain. Inside we stopped at a gift boutique store where we tasted sangria, cava wine, nougat, fresh bread with different types of olive oils. The shop is packed with gifts at very good prices, so it is a good place to buy gifts for home and friends. The Spanish Village is full with gift shops and restaurants and we got to spend more than 1 hour to enjoy the Spanish Village.
Then we returned to central Barcelona for a walk tour around the 15th-century Barcelona Cathedral and visited the Gothic Quarter and ending the tour in Las Ramblas. Had an amazing time!!!
