Center of Spain's Catalonia region, Barcelona offers an inside look at this distinct culture, from its whimsical architecture to its fraught political history.
Barcelona abounds with landmarks that reflect Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí's modernist vision, including his famous unfinished basilica, the Sagrada Familia. Stepping further back in time, Barcelona's historic Gothic Quarter reveals its origins as an ancient Roman outpost and capital of the Crown of Aragon in the Middle Ages before transitioning into a modern metropolis in the 19th century. Outside of history and architecture, the city has become famous for its regional Catalan cuisine and celebrated chocolate. Experience Barcelona's delights with Context's Barcelona private tours and small group tours.

Olga was excellent. Everything before the trip was communicated thoroughly. But Olga was absolutely wonderful! You could really tell how passionate she is for her city and it showed throughout the entire tour. She took the time to explain things and told us things we would never learn in our own. There is nothing negative I can think of at all. It was truly an amazing experience and one I would recommend a hundred times over.
