TOURS FOR GROUPS OF 7 OR MORE
We specialize in small groups, which is why our fees are calculated for groups up to 9 people (walking tours) or up to 6 (chauffeured tours).
Larger groups require more planning and coordination, and sometimes that can be more than our company infrastructure can handle. This is why we can only accept groups larger than 10 for walking tours or 6 for chauffeured tours under certain conditions.
We reserve the right to reject a tour request or booking if it doesn’t meet the conditions we need to deliver an excellent tour. If your group is larger than we feel confident working with, please find another provider.
All our tours are private tours for your party only. When we talk about “groups” we mean the people you are traveling with. We’ll never hook you up with other travelers for a tour (but you are welcome to find people to share costs in travel forums, as some have done before – we just can’t do it for you).
We adhere to the Best Practices Declaration of the AGUICAT tour guide association, which has the support of the Barcelona City Council. For the sake of tourism sustainability and respect for the neighbors, any group larger than 20 people will be split in two smaller groups, each with their own tour guide (with the resulting extra costs).
Also, in order to avoid noise pollution, our guides will not use speakers to provide explanations to large groups, but we can provide whisper systems (headsets) at an extra cost.
TOUR LENGHT: 4 hours
TRANSPORTATION: Walking & Taxi
Groups of 10 or more: Most important tourist sites require pre-paying tickets in advance for groups of 10 or more, and often they don’t admit changes nor refunds once they are paid. While we are happy to organize itineraries for groups of 10 or more that include Sagrada Familia and/or Park Guell, I’m afraid we don’t have enough infrastructure to make the necessary group reservations for other sites.
- 10 to 13 people: we strongly recommend to split in 2 minivans for your tour.
- 14 people or more: your best transportation option is using a minibus (as coordinating 3 or more minivans would be too tricky). Please note that your itinerary might be shortened as required unless you book extra time.
Groups of 10 or more: besides the complexity of coordinating (and finding) enough taxis when needed, most important tourist sites require pre-paying group tickets in advance and often they don’t admit changes nor refunds once they are paid. While we are happy to organize itineraries for groups of 10 or more that include Sagrada Familia and/or Park Guell, I’m afraid we don’t have enough infrastructure to make the necessary group reservations for other sites. We can, though, find alternatives that can be seen just from outside or that don’t need reservations.
