1st Stop: Park Güell
Starting your tour at a convenient location, hop aboard your private coach and make your way to Park Güell. Take in the views on your way to the park and pay attention as your tour guide fills you in on stories about Park Güell and its history. Originally meant to be a gated community for the wealthy inhabitants of Barcelona, Park Güell was commissioned to Antoni Gaudi in the early 20th century. Gaudi being the architectural genius that he was, designed the park and residential community with expert creativity. The original plan did not stick with the Barcelonians, and this masterpiece turned into a marvel for the public.
