There are at least five good reasons why you'll need a private English speaking guide on your visit to Barcelona and which you are able to book on this website. First and foremost, because the tedious long entry queues at the various venues won't be a problem for you! In fact, you won't waste any time and you won't have to wait in any queues at the ticket office or the entrance to any of the attractions you are visiting. The English speaking guides from Barcellona.shop are certified professionals who pay great attention to detail and have at least 15 years worth of experience behind them with both Spanish speaking and foreign tourists. They are always happy to try and accommodate a varied range of requests and they all share an absolute passion for the city of Barcelona. The guide to whom you will be entrusted will be an absolute expert with a really thorough knowledge of the city who will make you want to move to one of the liveliest cities in Europe! Most of the guided tours are conducted by a bilingual guide which means listening to everything twice, once in Spanish and once in English and these tours are only available at certain times of the day. However, you can be sure that your private guide will only speak in English and will be available at the time you require, (unless they are already booked with someone else). So it is always recommended to ask them for any bookings sooner rather than later, in order to avoid any disappointment!
Another good reason for booking a private guide is the possibility to book your tour at the time you want and for as long as you want. You can ask them to take you to other attractions in the city or even to stay for as long as you want in your favorite museum whilst listening to their fascinating commentary. And who says you have to visit the museums and churches? Sometimes people just want to enjoy a tour of Barcelona, exploring some of the less well-known spots that are full of intriguing history, sample some typical dishes and admire some typical traditions of the true Catalonia. Your private guide will be there at your side and you choose where to go and what to see. Did you know that if you want them to, your guide can come and collect you from where you're staying? At the door of your lodgings or hotel or wherever suits you best. You just need to provide us with all the necessary information at the time of making your booking.
Barcelona is definitely a city that's worth discovering on foot as this is the best way to get the maximum out of your guided tour. Strolling along the streets in the city center is a unique and inspiring experience: your guide will accompany you through the narrow streets, secret alleyways and hidden squares which you can only access easily on foot. If you want to travel from the historic center to areas that are not too far away, such as the Sagrada Familia, Park Güell or Casa Vicens for example, we recommend that you take a taxi or make use of the metro. In fact, this is undoubtedly the most convenient and cheapest option because in Barcelona, the taxis are everywhere and above all, they're not terribly expensive! In any event, if you prefer a guided tour in a more private environment, you can request this when filling out your booking form. The costs of the chosen means of transport will be calculated separately and you will receive your quote via email.
In order to organize an itinerary for your visits to the city's main attractions, you should bear in mind: the distance between the various attractions, the mode of transport you are intending to use and the average duration of a visit at each attraction.
Below you will find all the vital information needed when planning your visits to the most famous attractions in Barcelona:
Duration of a visit to the Sagrada Familia: about two hours;
Duration of a visit to Casa Batlló: about one and a half hours ;
Duration of a visit to Camp Nou: about one and a half hours;
Duration of a visit to Park Güell: about one hour and 15 minutes;
Still unsure? Have a think about it. Imagine arriving in a city for the first time and wanting to see all the most famous tourist attractions, those which you really can't afford to miss. It can happen that by hoping to see all of them, you are overwhelmed by the organization because you don't know where the different areas of the city are or which metro line to take in order to reach your desired destination. Think how fantastic it would be to be accompanied by someone who can resolve all these difficulties and will guide you around Barcelona without any worries, stress, queues, problems or nasty surprises!
