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.
our guide was fantastic!!!!
She very well prepared and the 2 houres were passed to fast
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.
Fabulous tour with a very knowledgeable guide. The tour gave a whole new dimension to the city of Barcelona.
Loved loved loved this tour and the later starting time of 1800 made the walk easier in the cooler part of the day. Saw so much and learnt so much. So exhilarating to see the espouse Gaudi buildings. Highly recommend.
Had a great time on this tour. Oliver was a wonderful guide who really knew the area, the history of this period and described a lot of things about Barcelona I would not have otherwise noticed. I was on my own, and found it to be a great tour to do solo. It is wonderful to learn about a city from a true local, someone who grew up there and has a genuine perspective. This was my experience with Oliver, our guide, and it was really appreciated. Also, the little headset you wear really makes the tour just wonderful Not a word is missed - I can't imagine how tours were accomplished prior to this technology.
Guide was knowledgeable. Great way to see examples of modern buildings and headphones ensure that you hear clearly and you are free to move around for photos.
The tour was very informative and the guide was a delight. Highly recommend.
Excellent tour. Headphones provided so this enabled us hear the tour guide without having to be too close. He was very enthusiastic about the history of the buildings and architects of Barcelona and this tour dovetails very nicely with the Gothic Tour, providing tourists with a comprehensive insight into the origins and development of Barcelona. I would highly recommend this inexpensive way of finding out about the emergence of Barcelona.

One of the traditional tour of Barceona not to be missed. I recommended for those who are seeking for a unique architecture and unique history of modern Barcelona. Full star for the tour.
Really well done. The guide was clearly knowledgeable about her subject. Would definitely recommend taking this tour.
For me a great introduction to the circumstances leading to modernism and the artists, architects and events of the time. It is such a beautiful city. It was quite a long walk, but full of great information and it go me into areas of the city I would probably have otherwise missed. Head set allow to wander as the guide is talking but still stay connected to the group.
Loved this trip. Guide was excellent and managed the group well. Enjoyed hearing about some of the well known Spanish architects.
Very interesting tour with a knowledgeable guide.A bit surprised that the Basilica was not included though
The tour overall was interesting. I basically had 2 issues. First the tour was advertised to begin at 4 pm. When we got there, they informed us that in the summer it begins at 6 pm. The site needs to be updated with the right timings. Secondly I was expecting more Gaudi.
Our tour guide was very good. She answered all our questions and did not rush at any point.
2 hours of slow walking is a lot and for that during, this tour covers a fair bit and keeps you going.
Good tour for background, but you'll see only a few of the famous "Modernistas'" buildings. The guide stressed that there were many others than Gaudi, and most of the tour dwelt on things other than the buildings we see in pictures. At the end, when people asked how to get to specific buildings they'd read about, the guide did tell how to reach them.
Worth doing, we saw the important Gaudi buildings but also learnt a lot about buildings we would never have come across ourselves. Recommended. Thanks for a great tour.
