We want to help you find your favourite tours, activities and attractions to have a memorable time in Barcelona.

What are the differences?

Among those travellers who are coming to Barcelona for the first time, the favourite choice to explore the city very often are the two hop on – hop off buses.

An alternative to get a great general overview and even more detailed insights are the guided bus tours. Here you can choose from comprehensive Barcelona highlights tours that usually take an entire day or thematic half day tours that focus on a specific topic like Gaudi, general architecture, history or arts.

To explore the historic centre of Barcelona, the best way will be to join a bike or walking tour. Within 2 to 3 hours you will focus on a certain area or topic. The most common walking tours are about Modernisme, the Gothic Quarter, Pablo Picasso or even a gourmet or tapas tour that combines cultural and culinary experiences.

Although the city itself already got many things to offer, it is highly recommended to go on an excursion to the surrounding places in Catalonia. Excursions from Barcelona go to the holy mountain of Montserrat, to Salvador Dali’s museum in Figueres and if you are more into beaches, Sitges or the Costa Brava will probably be your favourite choice.

For mountain lovers, just take a tour to the Pyrenees. Pure nature and tranquility in Vall de Nuria will be an unforgettable experience.

The Penedes region about half an hour south of Barcelona is renowned for the world-famous cava sparkling wine. Cava tours & wine tastings in the Penedes region will show you the most tasty side of Catalonia on a day trip. Many people actually combine this with a visit to nearby Montserrat.

On top of that, there are plenty of further very special Barcelona tours: by Segway, by ebike, in a yellow talking GoCar or on a GPS guided Vespa, just to name a few. And if you happen to come to Barcelona during the heat of summer with your children, why not take your family for a day trip to the waterpark of Isla Fantasia?

For those who prefer to discover the diversity of Barcelona on their own, the city discount cards are highly recommended: For museum lovers the Barcelona Articket or Arqueoticket and if you would prefer to include public transport as well go for the Barcelona Card right away.

Whatever you will finally decide to go for, one thing is certainly guaranteed with all these Barcelona tours and activities: You will have a great time and wish you could stay longer!
