ABOUT Barcelona

Discover the many faces of Barcelona with a passionate local guide

A trip to Barcelona conjures up some pretty spectacular anticipation. Whether you’re going to see the sun and the beach, the art and the architecture, or the tapas and the nightlife, we help you experience the sights, the tastes and the history through the eyes of Barcelona’s best local tour guides.

The original Free Tour of Barcelona starts outside the Jaume I metro exit, and covers many of Barcelona’s attractions, including the Gothic Quarter, Barcelona Cathedral and El Born District. After you’ve got the overview with the free walking tour, delve deeper with us!

The Gaudí and Modernism Tour will take you to visit the works of Anton Gaudí, including the famed Sagrada Família. If you want to see even more of the city, why not get pedalling and join the Barcelona Bike Tour? But Barcelona’s history is not all sunshine and beauty; learn about its dark side with the Forbidden Tour.

Getting hungry? Join an authentic Barcelona food tour and discover delicious local dishes with our Tapas Tour. One thing’s for sure; the top things to do and see in Barcelona can all be found on a SANDEMANs tour!
