She was attentive and thoughtful and very responsive to our badgering questions! It ended up just being two of us (my wife and myself), but the tour wasn't cancelled... More

Had a perfect walking tour with Miguel hosting us through the walk on Gaudi's architecture. It was extremely informative and interesting. Miguel was very passionate about sharing his ideas on architecture and giving us way more stories about the city of Barcelona than I would have expected from the tour. I would encourage anyone and everyone to attend at least... More

Loved the way the tour was organized and explained - it linked the history of the city with the architectural movements around the world and it explained in great detail the innovative aspects of the Catalonian modernism. Our guide, Martina was a lovely person, friendly who showed great knowledge and passion for what she does.

A group of 10 people from our company had an amazing walking tour of Gaudi buildings with Ricard. It was cold outside, but he held our attention and we were very impressed with his tremendous knowledge and warm, welcoming personality.

I don't usually leave reviews, but the tour with Miguel was excellent. His knowledge and obvious passion for the subject, really brought architecture and specifically Gaudi alive for our family. Even our girls (aged 11 & 9) loved it. And the extra bonus for us, was that kids under 12 were free! My wife & I both thought it was... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our "Barcelona and the Sea" walking tour. We have lived in the city for 5 years, but didn't realise how little we know about its architectural history until we did this tour. We would strongly recommend it to anyone who has a passion for Barcelona or for architecture.

Because we were a group of 6 we did a private Gaudi tour. Ricard was great, his English was excellent and he took us to all the Gaudi spots and some extras. He gave great context of Barcelona and Catalunya history and architectural history around the city. It was a really great way to determine what we wanted to see... More

Ricard took us on an amazing 3 hour Gaudi tour. Very enjoyable and informative. What a great day! We then went on a two hour tour of the old City and the waterfront which was excellent and fun. We recommended Ricard to another family who loved the tour as well.

We learnt so much whilst exploring the streets of Exaimple. We would definitely recommend this, ideally as the first thing you do on arriving in Barcelona. Joan was so enthusiastic that the time flew by and we were sad to find the tour had finished. Thank you so much, Joan!

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
