Get the most of the city in a chauffered mercedes in a driven offshore excursion

A delicious itinerary that starts with a lovely driving up to Montjuic, the rocky mountain that you saw when entering the port, facing the cruise ship terminal; and finishes with an optional and inspirational walking in the old town: El barri gòtic.

It includes a long stop in the breathtaking Sagrada Família catholic church, 136 years under construction! by the famous architect Antoni Gaudí. That's the most visited place in Spain.

We will discover all that during a relaxing drive with a chauffered mercedes class E (up to 2 pax) or a Viano Van (up to 4 pax), and can also customize the tour on the run if you have special requests to see special places.

This tour can be extended to become my 8 hours "Highlights of Barcelona" Private Tour, #404403. See that tour for the details and the possibilities of the 8 hours extension: Picasso trails. . .

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Let me know which is your cruise Terminal in the port of Barcelona or the hotel where you are staying and we will come to pick you up.

End location: Let me know where you want to be dropped off, either in your cruise Terminal in the port of Barcelona or in the hotel where you are staying.

Duration: 4 hours

If it rains we may change the itinerary but will keep the 4 hour length.


For this tour we use luxury mercedes cars:

- A Class E car for up to 2 passengers.
- A Viano van for up to 6 people.

There is no problem for bigger groups, just let me know and I will tell you the extra cost.

What’s Included

- My time and service as your official licensed guide
- The chauffered mercedes that will be a Class E up to 2 guests and a Mercedes Viano up to 4 guests. For bigger groups feel free to ask me about the price.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

20 euros - You do not need any extra money except for a coffee and/or some snacks if you want to have a break. Around Sagrada Familia would be a lovely place to do so. Just take 20€ in cash for fingerfood or souvenirs.

What’s Extra

As I am an official/licensed guide we skip the lines and you have the option of getting inside one of the 4 landmarks that we will drive by, but remember please, that this will shorten the whole itinerary.

If this is the case, the optional entrance tickets to the sightseeings have to be paid on the spot by the customer with the priviledge of skipping the lines, as I am an official/licensed guide, as said before. If you decide to get into the Sagrada Família church you can estimate 18€/person; 5€/person for the Cathedral of Barcelona; 22€ for the Pedrera house and 29€ for the Batlló house.

Any personal purchases or expenses will be extra, such as food, drinks and souvenirs.

There is a small extra charge of 30€ to drive to the airport. Please contact me before booking for this option.


I don't have any restriction.

A Recent Review of this tour

BEST TOUR GUIDE EVER... Tate was exceptionally knowledgeable about history, geography, culture, current events and all things pertaining to Barcelona! She was fun to be with and was very accommodating. There were 7 of us and 2 languages to be considered and she was excellent! If we ever come back to Barcelona, we will absolutely be asking for Tate. We were also so pleased with our driver Pedro. They were both completely aware of our needs and were right there to help. An exceptional experience!
