BARCELONA IN ONE DAY AND CRUISES
If you are coming to Barcelona on a cruise or for any other reason and your time here is very limited, then this is ideal for you.
We offer you a wide range of shore excursions and tours that are perfect for your short stay in Barcelona.
We can pick you and your group up at the port and show you as much of the city as possible in the limited time you have. And get you back to your cruise, or airport or hotel on time.
This could include, sightseeing, shopping or just sampling the special Spanish cuisine that Barcelona is also famous for. Or of course, a mixture of the lot.
Here are a couple of examples for a typical cruise arriving at 8am and departing at 6pm. Like all of our Custom tours, these are simply suggested itineraries, and can easily be customized to suit your schedule, budget, and interests.
Montjuïc and Walking Hybrid Tour
We pick you up at 9am and have a very pleasant 20 minute walk to our bike shop. We’ll jump on some Electric Bike (e-bikes) and explore Montjuïc (Montjuïc E-bike Tour), the small mountain next to the harbor. These bikes will get us up the hill no problem. After exploring Montjuïc, we will drop off our bikes, and have a walk through the old Roman area (Gotico Walking Tour) and explore the narrow ancient alleys and find a nice café / restaurant for lunch. Then after a cheeky espresso, we will head back to the port.
City Bike and Walking Hybrid Tour
Lets pick you up from the cruise terminal and head towards the main city center harbor of Port Vell. This is full of luxury private yachts that we can dream about while having breakfast or a coffee by a harbor side café. From here we can do a walking tour through the old Roman area (Gotico) and get to our bike shop. The Walking tour is great to see the old town, however, some ofthe cities attractions such as Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia and the Park Cuitadela are a bit far by foot. However, they are perfect for the city bike (City Bike Tour)
The complete Gaudi works Tour.
Exactly what the title suggests. Spend a whole day sightseeing, but specifically concentrating on the architectural maestro’s work. Choose different ways of getting around.
Budget: Walking and catching the public transport system or using E-bikes (Electric Bikes)
Luxury: A private chauffeured air conditioned van.All, with a professional fun guide of course.
We pick you up from the port in a minivan and explore as much of the city as possible in the time that we have. This could include any areas that you particularly want to see, such as the Sagrada Familia or the Olympic Stadium for example. Again, we can stop off somewhere and get a bite to eat. Don’t worry, we love our food and all our guides know where to get a good feeding. In whatever time you have here we can give you an overview of the entire city.
These frequently asked questions cover only this section. You can also see a more in depth FAQ’s on each tour page specific to that tour, and the general FAQ’s in the footer of the website.

This depends entirely on the tour that we have planned for you. For most tours that do not require sun and blue skies, the show must go on! Our tours go out rain or shine.

We certainly can for hotels in center and around the beach. For other hotels, it depends on how long it would take your tour guide to arrive. Keep in mind that the booked tour time begins when your tour guide arrives at the hotel.

As much or probably even more than the public tours. Generally all of our toursare suitable for children (You can see the specific FAQ’s on each tour page for minimum ages).You can specify the highlights of the tours with your kids in mind.This is one of the biggest reasons that guests opt for a private tour.
