I would appreciate feedback on airport transfer services between Prat airport and my city center hotel. I am arriving late in the evening and need to go directly to my hotel. It seems that the bus only goes to a stop in the city center and not to hotels. Also has anyone booked tours after arriving? I usually do this but everything I see for "skip the line" tours online wants you to pick a date for your tour in advance. I am willing to buy passes in advance and pick a day when I get there. However, I don't want to miss getting into selected sights or waiting a long time to do so. Please help me out. :)

It might be best contact your hotel as they might offer a shuttle service. If not, they can advise you on what a taxi will cost. I was there last year and remember the taxi from the airport to my hotel in in center city being about 25 euro. As for tours, you can book them thru - or use that site to see the kind of tours available then book when you get at to your hotel as often this includes a hotel pick-up and drop off (this is what I do). Another alternative is to find your way to the well-run tourist office at Plaza Catalunya. Busses for their tours leave from this plaza. For some sites, like Casa Mila (important Gaudi site), there is a walk-up VIP service that skips the general admission line. It costs a bit extra, but you use a express elevator to get to the roof, and they also give you a small book about Gaudi and his architecture. Other popular sites may have this service too.

Barcelona is always ideal for photographers. A lot of people are using 360 video camera to capture a wider scene.
