Would you like to see the best of the city from a top Mercedes van and then savour a selection of tapas and wines at a unique private home set of several films and TV series? Then this is your tour!

You will be picked up at your cruiser, hotel or airport terminal to enjoy a Full Panoramic 3 hour tour. We will comfortably admire Barcelona's most iconic sights having several stop-over on the way.

After that I'd love you take you to my home in the heart of the city, at the atmospheric Born district. Built in the XIX century, its high ceilings and barcelonan flavor makes it special enough to have been the set of TV series and films.

A good selection of tapas, cava and wines will be ready for us to enjoy (everything included in the price). It'll be a great moment to share the morning experiences. Also, I'll be glad to give you advice so you can better organize the rest of your days in the city.

Please, send me an e-mail with your wishes and I'll be happy to customize a tour to match your expectations.

Itinerary

For a great view of the city we'll drive up to Montjuic where the Olympic Games took place in 1992. We will then travel through the heart of the city to admire Gaudí outstanding buildings: Casa Batlló, La Pedrera and the world famous Sagrada Familia. Then we will head towards Gaudís amazing Park Güell. On our way down we will visit the Gothic Quarter: the majestic Cathedral, the remains of the city wall and several other treasures.

Once in El Born we will visit the Basílica de Santa María del Mar (XIV century), carrer Montcada (Picasso Museum) and the Born CCM (an old market turned into Cultural Centre) right next to my home, where we will enjoy the tapas lunch.

We will visit most of the spots from outside (the exteriors are magnificent themselves), to make the most out of the visit. You will get a tour rich in facts, insider knowledge and anecdotes.

A Recent Review of this tour

Cristina's panoramic tour of Barcelona was wonderful, especially capped with a lovely tapas meal at her home. We were a party of four with limited skills in Spanish, but her command of English was exceptional and, with her deep roots in Barcelona, she was very knowledgeable of the region's history and current affairs. We highly recommend the tour.
