Olga was extremely knowledgeable about Modernism and Gaudí. She took the time to answer our questions and point out other things we were interested in as the tour went along. She also gave us great tips to help us enjoy our time in Barcelona. We’d definitely use her for other tours.

Marlon was very knowledgeable and efficiently organised our group to make steady progress through neighborhoods, centuries and ideas.

Very good experience!! It’s a good way to explore the city ! Suggest to do it on the first day of the trip.

Marlon was knowledgeable and energetic. Kind and good work ethic. Communicate well before the tour.

Our guide was a native Barcelonan who was knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
