My wife and I enjoyed immensely the architectural walk of the Eixample in Barcelona with Miguel Barra. He is an architect with his own practice. He has a broad knowledge of the city's cultural, economic and architectural history and is fluent in English. We took his tour on our third day in Barcelona and it was a great way to... More

See Gaudi through an excellent walk. We took a tour led by Ricard and learned about how Barcelona developed in the 19th & 20 th centuries. Ricard took us to beautiful nooks and crannies. If you're interested in Gaudi, Barcelona, urban development and architecture definitely go on this walk.

One or more of the remarkable Barcelona Architecture Walks should be scheduled at the beginning of any visit to Barcelona. I participated in the BAW2 (Gaudi) walk led by Ricard Pons, a young and personable architect who shared some of his great passion for this beautiful city and the development and individual expressions of the Modernismo movement in a historical...

Best way to get to know the city and what to really see. Fun, informative, and a nice stroll around the out of the way and popular sections of Barcelona. If only I had more time in Barcelona, I would have done each tour.

I hate touristy activities and this was perfect. The guide overwhelmed me with an incredible amount of fascinating facts and insight. We talked about what art is, the point of architecture as well as a brief history of architecture, which for someone like me who knows little was very welcome. Highly recommended if you're even vaguely interested in the insanely... More

I did the Gaudi tour with Miguel. For me what I liked was It wasn't just about Gaudi. Unlike a tourist excursion, Miguel gave the background by explaining the city planning process that created the new city in the 1860s and so created the environment for Gaudi and others to thrive and lots of little things which affected the city......

It was surprisingly difficult to find an architecture tour in Barcelona that was NOT operated by a touristic company. Finally, I found Barcelona Architecture Walks, which, like so many genuinely good tours, seems to rely entirely on TripAdvisor and local word of mouth. Miguel was a fantastic guide. He has a strong point of view about the city and its... More

Miguel was extremely easy to communicate with via email regarding the tour and payment. He met us at our meeting spot and proceeded to teach us about the period of modernism in Barcelona's architectural history. We got a very good background of how the city was developed and how it spread out over the years. He showed us courtyards, backs... More

My group of postgraduate students booked two tours - Barca and the Sea with Ricard and Gaudi with Miguel Angel. Both tours and both guides were absolutely excellent, knowledgeable, with both a rare enthusiasm and a genuine insight into architecture, design and their place in Barcelona's living history. I can not recommend highly enough.
