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.

This architecture tour was amazing. Given by a professional architect, Ricard's passion for the city and its architectural landscape was infectious. We had the opportunity to learn about Barcelona's history and the architectural trends that developed throughout it. The highlight was definitely learning more about Guadi, and his growth as an architectural genius. A must do tour during your stay... More

A great way to learn about Barcelona and Miralles through the city history.. Miguel Angel makes himself easy to be listened. I will repeat in another one for sure!

As a non-architect, I found the walk a tad profound for me. Nonethless.as architecture is art with a function, Miguel has done a great job in explaining the history of architecture & how architecture has evolved with the history of Barcelona city & its urban planning. References to art movement --modernism & surrealism were also mentioned. It is a good... More

I joined Miguel on his BAW1 - Enric Miralles city tour. I'm an architect and I love Miralles' work - he is a home-grown architectural legend - like Gaudi - but the tour was so much more than I expected. I had visited Barcelona several times before but for the first time began to understand the city's history and how... More

I booked the Gaudi tour for my family - two parents around 60ish years old, my husband and me, and my sister (around 30ish). Before we arrived at the tour, I was a little worried because none of us know anything about architecture. But, my fears were unfounded because Miguel really understood his 'audience' and did a fantastic job explaining... More
