If your time in Barcelona is limited, book a four-hour tour with me and enjoy visiting the highlights at your pace.
All tours with me are tailored to meet your interests and requirements.
What does it cost?
€165 plus any entrance charges. (No weekend supplement)

My fee is per group (up to 15 people).
As an official guide I can get you the “fast-track” entry to the Sagrada Família Church and the Picasso Museum, for example.
My fee also includes collection from and return to hotels in the city and the cruise ship terminals, but not transport.
Please contact me if you require any further information or if you wish to book a tour.
