If you are thinking of visiting Barcelona, don’t hesitate. Barcelona is a marvelous city and we are sure you are going to be delighted.
Here is a list of tips that will be useful to you while you are in Barcelona.
You will be asking “why magical?” our experience says anyone who visits sooner or later comes back, though of course it does have some not so good points, for example pickpockets. The answer is to be careful with your belongings , especially when walking in the centre of the city, in the Ramblas and above all where there are crowds of people. If you are on a tour with us, or with any other company, we recommend that you leave your most important possessions in the vehicle and the driver will look after them with pleasure, avoiding problems.
Vehicles that provide these types of services have to be validated and have a transport license. Bear in mind if the police stop the vehicle and the vehicle is illegal, nothing personally will happen to you but it will ruin part of your holiday, waste your time and perhaps cost you money. Therefore if you decide to use our services, or those of any other company, ask for the papers and this will help us to stamp out pirate operations in tourism in Barcelona.
How to get the most out of your time in Barcelona
In general there are places in the city it is considered obligatory to visit, above all those related to the architecture of Antonio Gaudí. Everybody should visit the Sagrada Familia once in their life. There are other jewels of Gaudí spread around the city, such as the casa Mila (la pedrera), la casa Batlló and casa Vicents and many others. I also recommend a walk through el parque Güell by Gaudí and take a visit to the famous Ramblas and el barrio gótico. However, be especially careful in Ramblas. The pickpockets are very crafty and sneaky. We also recommend a visit to Montjuic castle. With its views over the city and the port. It is the perfect place to take photos, and if you fancy it you can have dinner and take in a Flamenco Show.
