Sightseeing with Kids

 You might find it helpful and more entertaining for kids to take a guided tour of the city. As well as tourist buses, there are walking tours, boat cruises and even helicopter sky tours of the city. Bike tours usually only have adult-sized bikes but if you have very young children see Getting Around Town for bike rental companies that provide child seats and take advantage of the promenades, and bike routes around the city.

Barcelona’s Bus Turístic is an easy way to visit the city with all the family. An open-top bus is always a hit with kids and you can get a fairly thorough idea of most of the city’s sights without exhausting those little legs in the process.


Enjoy a walking tour around Barcelona especially designed for kids and families. The Runner Bean Tours dedicated Kids and Family Walking Tour will allow you to discover the history and secrets of city's Gothic Quarter while your children enjoy games, songs and fun along the way! Giants that come alive, trees that speak through their leaves and medieval legends are all part of the magic on this activity tour for all the family.
