PRIVATE BARCELONA MINIBUS TOUR

4-HOUR PRIVATE MINIBUS TOUR OF BARCELONA

If your party are more than 7 people and don't want to split for the rides

Are you 7 to 14 people and wish to get a chauffeured overview of Barcelona? Walking and taking taxis is not an option for you? Don’t want to or can’t split in two minivans for your sightseeing either? (2 minivans take upto 13 of you + guide)

While our company specializes in small private groups, sometimes people travels with their extended families, or with several other couples, or a group of friends or coworkers… This is why we also offer minibus tours for those larger groups that wouldn’t fit in the vehicles we usually use for our chauffeured tours.

However, minibuses move slower than smaller vans, and the city council designates specific pick-up and drop-off spaces for minibus and large bus passengers – often a few blocks away from the sites. This is why a minibus tour doesn’t cover as much as our average chauffeured tours. We have designed a couple of minibus itineraries to give you a clear idea of what can be achieved in 4 hours and how much walk would be involved.

DRESS CODE

  • The dress code at the Sagrada Familia Church isn’t usually too strict, but they have occasionally banned access to people wearing short shorts (closer to their butts than to their knees), deep plunging necklines or open backs.
  • To enter the Cathedral of Saint Eulalia (ONLY IF YOU ADDED EXTRA TIME) you need to cover your shoulders and your skirt or pants must be long to your knee.

Sagrada Familia spiral stairsOur tours only include the towers upon request. You need to know that:

It is not possible anymore to just climb the stairs: the way up is now only possible by elevator. However, the number of tickets available is restricted to just a few every hour, for an extra fee.

If there is availability, you are given a specific time to get in the line for the elevator (either the one in the Passion façade or the one in the Nativity façade, but not both), and after a 5 to 20 minute wait you finally get in the elevator that takes you to almost the top of the towers. From there you must walk down: it is not permitted to use the elevator to go down anymore. The whole process takes almost one hour, so unless you are OK shortening the rest of the tour itinerary, you should book one extra hour to be able to do the towers.

Do we recommend the towers, though? Only for the adventure of climbing spiral stairs, but not for the views as you’ll get better views from many other city sites. After all, those towers were designed to be bell towers, not vantage points. Also, the way down is narrow and occasionally claustrophobic, and it is definitely not for people scared of heights.

Tour operators like us are only allowed to book tickets for the Passion Façade towers – should you be interested in the Nativity Façade towers you’ll have to go back to Sagrada Familia on your own some other day as those tickets are only available for individual visitors.

THE TOWERS ARE NOT ACCESSIBLE FOR WHEELCHAIRS, AND NOT SUITABLE FOR PEOPLE WITH HEART OR LUNG CONDITIONS, CLAUSTROPHOBIA OR FEAR OF HEIGHTS. CHILDREN UNDER 6 YEARS OF AGE ARE NOT ALLOWED INTO THE TOWERS.

TAILOR THIS TOUR TO YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS

This tour is for parties of 7 to 14 people wishing to tour by minibus rather than walking, taking taxis or splitting in two minivans.

If you are 6 people or less, please check our other City Tours instead. The minibus tours described in this page are private tours and we can’t hook you up with other clients taking them.

If you are traveling with kids, both itineraries are kid-friendly.

If you have walking issues or use a wheelchair, please provide medical prove of your phisical issues so we can request a special permit that would allow the bus to stop right in front of the Sagrada Familia Church for drop-of and pick-up (otherwise we’ll be forced to stop 3 blocks away, as described above). Also if you are booking the Gaudi Tour itinerary, please note that there are short flights of stairs involved in the visit of Park Guell, plus the walk uphill to get back to the bus.

If you are on a cruise, these itineraries include pier pick-up and drop-off.

If you’d like to see more things without having to add extra hours, consider splitting in two minivans rather than using one single minibus. It is not only more time-efficient but you’ll also be dropped-off and picked-up right next to the sites instead of in the designated bus stops located further away.

If you are 15 people or more, we can still organize these two itineraries for you (but not other itineraries or extra hours if they include visiting the inside of sites other than Park Guell and Sagrada Familia). Different fees apply depending on the size of the vehicle you need.

Given that there were 11 of us and I didn’t book the tour until a couple weeks before, I wasn’t sure how our day in Barcelona would be. We only had one day and 11 people!! Wow! I am happy to say that Sandra made our walking and bus tour of Barcelona an awesome experience for a family that ranged from 18-72. Even the teens loved it! While we only had one day in Barcelona to see the city, we feel like we saw all the sights we wanted to, and we loved it. Thanks to Marta for booking our tour so quickly and to Sandra for making the day one to remember forever!

Lidia picked the 12 of us up from our cruise in our own private bus with driver and even provided a car seat for our toddler. She drove us around pointing out different buildings and landmarks. She was able to bypass lines and was a wealth of information catering to all of us (ages from 2-80). Would highly recommend!
