Are you coming by the cruise to Barcelona and are interested to visit Barcelona from cruise ship while you are having stop?
You should consider several factors before concluding what the best is for you?

Usually the time of the arrival of cruises is not matching most of the tours starting time , on the other side you have a hassle to reach to tour starting point from the cruise port of Barcelona and same for back .
Therefore, the best idea for one day in Barcelona from cruise ship is to find a tour that they are offering free pickup and drop-off. Be sure that they are covering pick-up from cruise port, because most of the tour operators in Barcelona could not offer pick-up and drop-off from cruise port.
Or maybe you are having some luggage that it is necessary to be with you while you are on a tour , in this case you should also be sure that you brings your luggage’s with yourself into the car .

Day trip to Andorra from Barcelona always have been one best options even in winter .
Andorra is one of the smallest country in Europe, which is situated between border of Spain and France with a lot stunning view, could be another best option for one day trip from Barcelona. Andorra with a capital of ‘Andorra La Vella’ is the highest Capital in the Europe and is suited in the valley of Andorra. The best way for having Andorra day trip from Barcelona is to starting the day trip from Barcelona, passing a border and going to France, visiting several mountain towns of France like Ax-Les-Thermes and then crossing the Andorra from north to south. By this way you are going to Andorra from the border of France and you are coming out from border of Spain and this is the reason that our recommendation is take three-country tour from Barcelona and visiting France, Andorra and Spain in one day.
Half-day trips from Barcelona could be started from early morning, mid-day or afternoonand it is recommended to purchasing a tour with free pick-up and drop-off service, otherwise you should consider another more 2 hours for your half-day trips from Barcelona.
for the early morning , you could have the option of Girona half day tour from Barcelona which is around 5 to 6 hours , for the mid-day departure our recommendation is half day tour Montserrat from barcelona and if you starting at 10am you have the chance to attend at boys choir performance of Montserrat and have enough time for visiting Santa Maria de Montserrat abbey .

Montserrat, which is the name of mountain range near Barcelona and hosted a monastery dated back to 1025, could be one of the best options for day trips from Barcelona in winter. It is true that it is mountain but the elevation is not high and you would not see any snow there , on the other side because in winter most of the days there is a little bit breeze , so you would experience very clear view of Montserrat mountain , monastery and even in some days Pyrenees .
