Fun tour. Wish the weather was a bit better. We had a lot of wind that made the microphone hard to hear at time.

Our guide was FANTASTIC! He was knowledgeable, articulate and set a pace. This tour is a must as "modernism" only lasted a short while and one can clearly understand why the architecture of Barcelona evolved. This tour is a must do.

I had a spectacular experience in Barcelona. The Modernism walk was excellent, the guide was charming and very knowledgeable (I don't remember her name but she was terrific). As an architect the buildings, most especially Gaudi's work, were a joy to encounter, and I am left with fond memories of it all. Jack Jacobson.

Pour un premier contact avec le modernisme catalan (Gausi, Domenech y Montaner) ou pour consolider ses connaissance en la matière, c'est un tour à ne pas manquer. Sur les sites visités, vous recevez des explications complètes et détaillées et des clés de lecture moins connue. Le visiteur est vite conquis! On refera ce tour lors de notre prochaine visite à Barcelonne, car c'était particulièrement enrichissant de point de vue culturel.

This was surprisingly a great tour. We did not have much expectation, we just wanted to get to know a bit on what we should see in Barcelona during our stay. But the tour guide lady was very very knowledgeable and passionate. We learned a lot and got super excited about almost everything.
