Chronologically you will get to stand in front of 5 of his works, 4 of them being the UNESCO World Heritage Sites - Palau Guell, Casa Batllo, Casa Mila (aka La Pedrera) and his master piece Sagrada Familia. We will help you to experience the unique and distinctive style of his creations while getting interesting background information about both his works and his life. -- Alternative & STREET ART Free Walking Tour In this tour we will take you away from the big tourist sights to help you understand what Barcelona is really about. We will teach you how to read the hidden city all around us.

It offers you the unique experience of on-location tuition from a professional photographer. No matter if you're a beginner or a professional, we will help you develop your photo skills. It's not important if you have a high end camera, a point and shoot camera or a smartphone, the important thing is to understand how photography works. It's the photographer that makes the difference, not the equipment. -- Barcelona HIGHLIGHTS Free Bicycle Tour During this ~2h/~12km (7,5mi) tour you'll be introduce to a Barcelona best and easiest reached by bicycle. We will, among others, ride along the 5km long a beach, through beautiful parks and see some of the important historical buildings and monuments that shaped our fascinating city.

A great afternoon with Joseph, a social historian who walked us through the Old Town conveying so much knowledge and passion for the city. I was totally engaged and did not realise how quickly the 2 to 2 and a half hours pass. I will most definitely be returning to experience the Gaudi and Alternative & Street Art tour. There... More

As it is considered the "old city", this tour is an excellent way to frame your visit to Barcelona,... More

I participated in 2 different tours and I really enjoyed the experience. It was great: the guide, the stories, all the answers we received etc. If you love art, you should go to the alternative art tour. You will hear interesting information and see Barcelona in a totally different light. I have a photo camera and I like talking pics.... More
