Has anyone used a private car service to take a short tour of Barcelona? We disembark from a cruise early in the morning and our flight departs at 11 am. We were thinking that if we could get a private car service perhaps we could have a 30 - 60 minute driving tour on the way to the airport. Does anyone have a recommendation for a car service or perhaps could tell us whether or not this is should even be attempted.
Although i haven't used a private car service for a short tour of Barcelona, one option (if you have time to kill) is to take the metro to Barcelona city, spend some time seeing the sights and enjoy the Catalan cooking, and then take the airport train. I have always flown into Barcelona and its been a couple of years since i was last there, so i definitely recommend confirming the exact trains/metro lines. At a high level, the transportation options would look something like:
Take the port bus (from the terminal to Monument a Colomyou) - Columbus Monument / Statue
Take the Green Line / L3 Metro to Passeig de Gràcia
Take the Airport Train (C2 Train) from Passeig de Gràcia
Take a shuttle bus from the Train Station to the Terminal (if needed)
