Ports

  • Barcelona port


Disembark your cruise ship in Barcelona, and then climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan to begin your small-group tour. Ascend the steep incline of Montjuïc Hill, home to Olympic monuments such as the iconic Rings and the mighty Stadium. Capture photographs of the spectacular surroundings beside Montjuïc Castle, and then descend to explore the vast and visionary Plaza de Espanya. 

Visit Casa Batlló and Casa Amatller to discover more of legendary designer Antoni Gaudi’s work, and then breeze past the long lines outside of Park Güell with your priority access pass (if option selected).

Follow your guide through the vast and visionary parkland, marveling at richly decorated sculptures and swirling staircases that demand attention. Delve into Barcelona’s associations with modernist designs, and learn about the prominent influence Gaudi had on the city’s spectacular skyline. 

If you've selected the option, venture to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed La Sagrada Familia to witness the architectural eccentricity of the structure first hand. Hailed as a modernist masterpiece, the unfinished cathedral is steeped in tragic history and local legend.

After your enriching exploration of the city, return to the minivan, and arrive at your cruise ship well in advance of its departure time. Please be aware that the order of activities described above may be subject to change.

Excellent city tour for those with limited time!
Nancy F
, Nov 2019
We arrived in port and were met by Christina and her driver at precisely the arranged time. They stowed our luggage in their van and then we and 10 other guests were treated to a wonderful 3 hour tour of the city. Lots of beautiful views, great history of the city and the architecture. Several stops along the way and we arranged for a visit to Park Guell - beautiful! At the end of the tour, they arranged transportation for us and our luggage to our city hotel. Thanks!

Barcelona Shore Excursion was SUPERB
BarbaraJ276
, Nov 2019
Unlike our MONACO disaster with VIATOR (which you'll see in my review), the Barcelona Shore Excursion was an excellent experience ... from the moment of our pick up at our cruise ship dock, throughout the excellent tour route, and ending in the drop off at our Barcelona hotel. Everything was taken care of without a single problem. NOTE: Viator should specifically clarify to its customer that the "actual tour" is handled by a sub-contractor, "not Viator."

As advertised, but nothing more
Leslie C
, Sep 2019
I would say overall, the tour was pretty much as advertised, however, of the 6 guided tours we took, I would not rank it as high as the others. The tour was disorganized in the beginning... it was overbooked (not a big enough van to accommodate everyone which flustered the driver. She did a good job coming up with a solution, however, it delayed our tour). We were also under the impression that the driver (Danny) and guide (Christina) did not work together very often because their cohesiveness wasn't as great as some of the other driver/guide teams we experienced. Another thing that was unfortunate was that the windows of the van were very dirty, making for poor quality of any pictures taken from within the van since it did not stop at many points. The Gaudi sites we stopped at we really enjoyed and Christina had a great deal of knowledge about them. Sometimes with the crowds it was difficult to hear her so an audio set that we used in other tours may be helpful. The last comment I would have is that the tour felt rushed. It only ended up being about 3 hours from the time we actually left the port at 8:40 to when we were left at La Segrada Familia at 11:45. More time to get out of the van for quick pictures would have been appreciated.

Easy pickup and drop off at cruise terminal plus excellent tour guide. Highlights were the walking tour at Park Guell and the visit to the exterior of Sagrada Familia. Recommend as an alternative to the shore excursion offered by the cruise line.

We did a back-to-back cruise with Celebrity and since our first cruise ended in Barcelona and the second cruise began in Barcelona, it gave us the day to explore the city. I tend to be a cautious person only taking small steps at a time. My only previous experience with a private tour while cruising was arranged by one of my experienced travel companions. She advised me that Viator was a good bet to provide a tour you could trust. I researched private tours in Barcelona and found Viator offered a city highlights and skip-the-line Park Guell tour. I took that giant leap and booked the tour for the 6 of us that were travelling together. Later, one of our couples had to cancel but Viator gave them a full refund. The tour was excellent. We saw all the sights as advertised. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we had a very pleasant experience. We were picked up at the pier and dropped off at the pier as promised. We could not have asked for a better time.

We began by meeting our guide, Simone, outside the port terminal building. We waited for about 10 minutes for other guests to arrive and then made 2 more stops to pick up other guests. We were then on to Montjuic. We stopped for about 20 minutes for pictures and views. Park Guell was next and we entered quickly. Simone was gave us a good tour of the park. The final stop was La Sagrada Familia for an outside tour around the church and more photo ops. We chose to leave the tour at this point to spend a little more time in the city. It was easy to get a taxi back to the ship. Overall the tour was very good, Simone was informative and we enjoyed our time.

This tour was via bus and feet. We visited Park Guell and viewed the renovations of church. Guide was very good but the day was not one of our best trips. Guess I am not one for city tours without historical sites.

Great tour with personal touch. We were in small group of 10. The tour guide pick us up right after we exit the ship. We went into Park Guell and it was amazing. Better than the cruise ship excursions.
