Visit Barcelona with a Local

Visit Barcelona with an Unofficial and Low-Cost Guide

Barcelona is a city that's made for discovering little by little, wandering through the alleyways that light up the different neighborhoods with their beauty and tradition.

If you're coming to Barcelona as a tourist and you want to uncover the city's secrets, an interesting and inexpensive solution is to book a private person to accompany you, your friends and family wherever you want to go! Visit Barcelona with a local is one of the most beautiful ideas to enjoy the city.

Visit Barcelona with a Local

The service provided by a private companion

The private companion that you can book through can come and collect you straight from the hotel where you are staying or anywhere else in the city that's convenient for you. This will be someone who knows the city like the back of their hand and who will be able to show you all the hidden secrets of the Ciutat Vella as well as being able to meet the specific demands of each individual: if you are a music lover, they will take you to the best concerts. If you love visiting the parks and historic buildings, they will know how to put the best itinerary together for you and if you love good food, they will take you on a memorable gastronomic tour of the best and most typical Catalan eateries.

Seven good reasons to choose this option

   2 hours: €70 - 4 hours: €90 - 6 hours: €120 - 8 hours: €140;

   They'll speak your language; 

   You'll be able to visit the most beautiful areas of Barcelona;

     In just a couple of hours with your tourist guide, you will discover more than you would during a whole day on your own;

    This will make your visit truly special;

Excursions outside the city with a private guide

You can ask your private guide to accompany you on a visit to some of the areas outside Barcelona, enabling you to enjoy the many beauties that Catalonia has to offer such as the stunning villages of the Costa Brava. Your private companion will, in fact, be able to guide you not only through the streets of Barcelona on foot but will also be able to accompany you in a car by hiring a vehicle with a driver. If you love seeing something that is really novel, for example, why not treat yourself to an excursion to the amusement park of PortAventura where, since 2017, it has also been possible to access the incredible Ferrari Land. If, on the other hand, you prefer the seaside and don't want to travel too far from Barcelona, why not visit the marvelous Sitges? In any event, you can rely on the fact that your companion guide will know the best way to organize your day!

The pluses and minuses of a private guide

Putting yourself in the hands of a private companion offers numerous advantages: above all from a financial viewpoint. This service will cost you much less than booking a private guide; in addition to this, you will have the assurance that the excursion that has been planned for you will have been put together in order to optimize your time and enable you to visit all the places in which you are interested. At the end of your tour, you can round it off in style by having dinner in one of the restaurants that has been recommended by your companion or a venue that is listed in the articles dedicated to food in Barcelona which you can find on this website. And lastly, but by no means least, the person who has been selected to accompany you on your visit to Barcelona will speak your language. The only negative aspect is that your private companion won't be able to take you into the museums. They will be limited to showing you the "exterior" beauties of the city.

You can ask your private companion to devise a tour specially for you or you can use our suggestions as a reference point for visiting Barcelona in a day, in two days or in three days... Let yourself be inspired!
