YES, YES, YES. Great value and tons of crucial information for your money. There is just too much to look at in these busy areas to try to read, absorb, look, and navigate directions in busy traffic areas on your own and get anywhere close to the same experience. Since Modernism is such a prominent and cultivated cultural feature of Barcelona, you owe it to yourself to treat yourself to this tour.

Our guide, Gina (I think) was a lovely lady and the tour itself was lovely. Would have been nice if there had been a sign in the tourist office as I know more than one member of our group ended up waiting on the wrong side.

The guide was very informative. The 2 hour tour was probably 2 or more miles long. He was also enthusiastic. We had a small group of 6.

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.
