Forget the bus tour. This is the best way to REALLY experience Barcelona. Keith was our tour guide and was awesome!. I highly recommend him when you book the tour. The entire tour was custom tailored which helped us to see things we wanted to see and not wasting time on what other people wanted to see.

Booked a sidecar tour for something a bit different from the norm. My guide was lovely and showed me great sights and had some brilliant tips on what's best to see. Really enjoyed. Make sure you wrap up in the winter months. A bit over priced

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
