Take an in-depth exploration of the colorful Parc Güell, one of Barcelona's most famous landmarks, during this tour with a local guide. This architectural marvel, designed by renowned Catalonian builder Antoni Gaudí, is a must-see for any Barcelona visitor or design-lover.

Make your own way to the entrance of Parc Güell to start your exploration. Check with your tour operator at the time of booking to confirm the exact location and time of your meeting. Then follow your guide inside this fascinating public space to begin your visit. This one-of-a-kind architectural gem was built by the famed Antoni Gaudí in the early 1900s, based on a commission from Count Güell, a Barcelona local who hoped to create a residential estate for local families. After plans for the on-site housing were scrapped, the area was transformed into a public park for use by Barcelona residents.

Enter the park via the site's main staircase, which is dominated by a rainbow-colored lizard adorned with an intricate mosaic of tiles. This detailed style of tile work is known as trencadís, and is considered one of the characteristic design techniques of Barcelona. As you continue further inside the park, stop at its main square, which is flanked by the wavy profile of the snake-like trencadís-covered bench.

Step below the square, and see the park's lower court. This intricately-designed area is supported by a phalanx of 86 Doric columns, along with walking paths and viaducts set on sloping columns. Many have remarked on the symbiotic relationship between Gaudí's designs and the natural world, a relationship which is evident in the tree-like design of the lower court's columns.

Finish your visit to this amazing park at the small on-site house, which Gaudí once-occupied for a short stay. The house has been transformed into a museum, including a variety of furniture created by this genius craftsman.

Gaudi

Enjoyed the tour a lot. Weather was great for February, learned a lot about Gaudi. The only thing we were disappointed in was that the tour guide had to use 2 other languages for a few people. This was portrayed as an English speaking tour. It just stopped the flow of the commentary.

Carlos was a good, interesting and informative guide. Park Güell is a great place to visit. We went on a Sunday so it was crowded but we had nice weather.

We liked the tour well enough, but don't feel it was really necessary. Our tour guide (I don't recall her name) was very nice and clearly knew a lot about Gaudi and the park. As for whether or not we'd recommend the tour, we probably would not. It depends on what you want to get out of your visit to Park Guell. The "reserved" area is not really worth paying extra to see. We did not go into the museum (I think that was another charge). BUT, there is much to see and it would be a lovely place to have a picnic lunch.

An OK tour

This tour was a convenient way to experience Parc Guell. The guide was good and spoke clearly. Despite the info saying it would be conducted in two languages, the tour was conducted only in English. As per the tour explanation, there is walking and climbing involved so people with mobility issues might have a difficult time. Someone in our group did have issues and ended up waiting at the bottom, which is a waste of money for that person. The park itself is interesting with beautiful examples of Gaudi's work. Because it was off season, the park was not that crowded and we could get close to the viewpoint to see the city and take pics and also to get a good shot of the famous sculptures. While it was beneficial to have the guide's commentary, I wouldn't join a tour again for this destination. A good guide book and exploring at leisure would be enough.

Very disappointed about this tour. I have booked many tours with Viator in the past and this is the first time I did not like it. First it is mentioned that it is a group of 9 max, we were 20 or 22! Then it was a bilingual tour, in English and Spanish which is indicated but after listening to the comments in English you just stay there waiting for the guide to finish the same comments in the other language, which it looked to me was 60% of the time in Spanish and less in English. Then 2 people in the group were using walkers so we had to accommodate them so we went in a different way....I sympathize with those but why should the tour be adjusted for 2 out of 20...The museum at the end was closed...and we were given only 2 minutes at the top full of people to take pictures..Definately do not recommend and not worth to pay double the price for something you can do on your own with just a little bit of research on Google before.

Great Tour but Disappointing Audio

A very interesting and dramatic tour with a very knowledgeable guide. The ongoing renovations and consequent scaffolding inevitably reduced the impact. What let the tour down was the audio equipment and the fact that the bilingual commentary was geared too much to the Spanish language. Despite this we would recommend this visit.

It was an okay tour, but the venue was not great! Probably would have been better in October, more flowers.

Park Guell

This excursion should really only be 20-30 minutes. It would have been nice to have an introduction to the Park, gain access, and be released. Feel like it dragged on and tickets to the outskirts of the park are not included. This is an extra 5 euros, which is not bad, but would have liked to have known that the whole Park was not included.
