The guided tour of Barcelona takes place in the afternoon, so if you arrive in Barcelona in the morning, you can take the opportunity to take a walk along the Rambla, Plaza de Catalunya, where locate the Hard Rock in Barcelona, or go shopping in the great multitude of shops in the area.
The guided tour will start at 3:00 p.m., so it is recommended to be at the meeting point, next to the Sagrada Familia, 15 minutes before. From there you will discover Gaudí's fantastic basilica from the hand of your guide. On your way out, you will tour the Born and the Gothic Quarter and discover its secrets on the way to the Cathedral of Barcelona where you can enter and enjoy this magnificent temple at your leisure. Once you leave the cathedral, you will meet your guide again to continue walking through the narrow old streets of the city and get to know the different medieval squares and their historical relevance. Afterwards, a private bus will take you to the Montjuïc cable car for a panoramic tour in which you will pass through the Ciutadella Park, the Olympic Village, the Olympic Port and Barceloneta until you reach the Montjuïc mountain where You will get on the cable car to see Barcelona from above.

Remember that the use of appropriate clothing is mandatory to enter places of worship such as the Sagrada Familia and Barcelona Cathedral where tank tops, shorts or sandals are not allowed.
To get to the Sagrada Familia, which is a bit far from the center and next to the meeting point for the guided tour of Gaudí's Barcelona, we recommend using public transport as this will save you time and effort. The cheapest options are the metro and the bus, although our recommendation is always the metro because it is faster by avoiding city traffic.
If you choose to go bymetro, from Paseo de Gracia station (very close to Plaza Catalunya) take line L2, the purple one. You will arrive at the Sagrada Familia in a few minutes, directly and without transfers.
If you take the bus, bus 50 is the fastest. The stop is turning right onto Gran Vía. You will have to get off at the València-Lepant stop.
Another less economical option is the taxi. You will easily recognize them by their black and yellow colors. It is not the cheapest way to get around the city but it is the most comfortable and easy.
Today you will get to know the Montserrat mountain range, its abbey and the famous Moreneta (the black virgin of Montserrat). On this guided tour you will enjoy the mountain scenery in a beautiful route - by bus if you choose the morning option or by rack railway if you opt for the afternoon excursion - until you reach the monastery where you will enter the sanctuary and be able to contemplate the Virgin of Montserrat while you learn about the history and daily life of the monastery. To finish, you will enjoy a tasting of four traditional liqueurs distilled in the Abbey itself. During this visit you will also have free time to enjoy Montserrat at your leisure. This tour lasts half a day, so whether you choose to visit in the morning or in the afternoon, you'll still have time to wander around the city or rest at your downtown hotel.
