Top 10 Places to visit in Barcelona - 9). Private Guided Tours

9). Private Guided Tours - Introduction

We took a number of private guided tours in Spain and Portugal, and this one was outstanding. We spent a delightful half day touring modernist architectural sites with Begonia. It is extremely knowledgeable and very charming and considerate. 

They pick you up at you hotel or City Centre Retreat, and take you to four architectural sites, and, after your tour was finished, drop you at a nice restaurant near the water where we had a good lunch. You can also get some good recommendations on restaurants, other museums and night life, which all turned out to be great advise. While these tours may look expensive, this one was actually a great value because of the ease of getting around in an unfamiliar city, there extensive knowledge of history and architecture, and the chance to see things that a tourist might otherwise miss. 

I would definitely use these Tours again if I have the good fortune to return to Barcelona some day.
