The Best Barcelona Gaudi Tour
4-HOURS BARCELONA PRIVATE GAUDI TOUR
Secrets of the master
Have you heard about Antoni Gaudi architecture in Barcelona and can’t wait to see it? Are you aware there are lots of details and stories there you are likely to miss unless there’s someone there to point them out for you?
Do you get bored listening to audioguides full of fillers that never go straight to the point? Do you hate joining a large group of other visitors on a Gaudi tour and not being able to make all the questions you have? Are you all for skipping (very long) lines?
The Gaudi sites are the must-see of Barcelona. You can’t say you’ve been here unless you have seen at least a few of his masterpieces. But lines are long, unless you buy tickets in advance and time everything perfectly to arrive at the site within that short entrance span they give you.
Audioguides are slow: I personally get impatient and end up skipping lots of stops. And joining one of the group Gaudi tours that are organized at the sites means first of all being there at the right time (since they only usually schedule a few a day), and then not being able to hear your guide well or make questions. Plus how many sites can you really see in one morning? On your own, probably not more than one, maybe two.
Our Forever Barcelona Private Gaudi Tour is our most popular tour, and here is why: Our guides are experts that will be happy to answer as many questions you have. With us you get to skip all the lines without having to worry about getting tickets in advance: we take care of all that.
And you’ll be efficiently navigated around Barcelona to take the most out of your Gaudi architecture tour. You’ll get to see the 4 Gaudi masterpieces in just one morning (3 inside, 1 outside). At the end of the tour, you’ll be as passionate about Gaudi as our tour guides are!

TAILOR THIS TOUR TO YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS
The Gaudi tour is great for people wanting to see the best Gaudi sites but not needing to spend a whole day touring.
HINT: Add one or two extra hours to stop for lunch or see more sites.
If you are traveling with kids, the Gaudi sites in Barcelona are very kid friendly! And most kids are totally capable of following a 4-hour tour. If you are worried about their stamina, bring snacks for them and consider adding a driver (specially if you don’t want to split your family in several taxis if you are 4 or more, or during the summertime when an air-conditioned van is so worth it).
If you have walking issues or use a wheelchair, please check with us before booking: some sites involve stairs, and while they can be avoided that requires a longer detour and eventually an extra hour might be needed to cover the whole itinerary. The Barcelona taxi drivers are forced by law to accept wheelchairs (but they aren’t always pleased to do it…). Adding a driver will add comfort to your sightseeing and make it easier, but it won’t make it remarkably more time-efficient. The Sagrada Familia towers are not accessible for wheelchairs.
If budget is an issue or time is short, consider a private 1.5 hour tour of your favorite site, instead.
If you’d rather spend a whole day touring and see ALL the Gaudi masterpieces, check out our Full Day Barcelona Gaudi Tour.
If you are on a cruise, this is a great way to visit the Gaudi sites efficiently. Pier pick-up and drop-off is included for chauffeured tours. Instead, if you book a Gaudi walking tour you’ll be asked to join your tour guide at the first site in the itinerary (it should be easy to find a taxi at the pier).
If you don’t need to focus so much in Gaudi and prefer an overview of the city, check out our Barcelona sightseeing tour offer.
