Description

Barcelona is steeped in history – 2000 years of history to be precise! – and an official tour really enhances a visit to the city. Each part of Barcelona tells a story about what was happening in the city throughout the years, from the Medieval Born neighbourhood, where the streets are still named after workers guilds, all the way through the Eixample, the 20th Century development known for its well-organised streets and modernist architecture.

This tour offers you and your team the chance to see Barcelona from many different sides and hear an abundance of stories. You will explore the three iconic sections of Barcelona: Born (full name La Ribera but known locally as Born), the Gothic Quarter and the Barceloneta neighbourhood.

Once you have finished exploring these beautiful and intriguing parts of the city, you will head down to the Port and get on board La Gineta, a traditional-style galleon, to take to the seas like a sailor would have in the Medieval era (scurvy and barrels of rum not included!).

This tour and boat trip combo is both informative and relaxing; the whole group will learn about the city during the walking tour and then have one hour to sit back, relax and chat with each other while on board Gineta. By bringing together these two activities, your group will have two greats experiences in one: sightseeing and sailing.

Walking Barcelona – Where History Comes to Life

Barcelona’s iconic sights might seem spread apart, but the Gothic quarter, Medieval neighbourhood and Barceloneta district are all within walking distance of each other and also where you will find the highest concentration of exciting historical locations.

While there is now a huge modern shopping street and tourist cafes, the Gothic quarter still holds original Roman features, including parts of the old city wall and four Roman columns that are sequestered behind the Cathedral. Add to that the beautiful plazas, such as Plaza Sant Jaume where the Town Hall and Parliament Building are located, stunning and varied architecture styles scattered in the winding streets and stories of both conquerors and common folk hidden around every corner…

The Born neighbourhood holds a lot of Barcelona’s maritime history as this is where the boats used arrive before the manmade Barceloneta peninsula was added to the city. You can just imagine the hustle and bustle, the strange sounds and smells that would have filled the air. Your guide will take you from here through the Barceloneta neighbourhood and then down to the port.

Sailing in Barcelona – Relaxation Guaranteed

Gineta is a classically beautiful boat with a wooden exterior and traditional decoration. With both indoor and outdoor seating, you can choose to sit inside and look out the window at the Barcelona skyline or admire the view in the open air on deck. It’s the perfect spot to chat and get to know your coworkers while looking at the city you have just explored on foot.

The boat can hold up to 80 guests so there’s plenty of room for everyone.
