I went to a few Gaudi’s work. Each one gave me a different feel. Casa Mila may not be as fancy as the others but it feels very organic. Would have loved to experience staying there decades ago.

It was a fantastic way to see Barcelona from the street level, i.e. much better than by car or bus. The guide was fantastic and I throughly enjoyed it.

Julia was fantastic! Knows the city well and so friendly! Was one of favorite things we have done so far!

It was fantastic. It takes you to most important places in Barcelona and I also liked the waiting place.

Excellent experience ! The night view is amazing .
