"[Our guide] gave us such insight into Modernisme architecture as a whole, and Gaudí particularly. She had details about his life, his mood, his family, and how his clients and his city viewed his work. Her explanations of Barcelona's expansion and the decorative themes of Modernisme helped us understand this exuberant school of architecture, and how it fits with Barcelona's history. Highly recommended.”

Is this tour walking intensive, and/or wheelchair accessible?
We do cover extensive territory on this tour. The interior of Casa Batlló is wheelchair-accessible, and there are also chairs onsite for rental. Sagrada Família is wheelchair accessible, however it is still under construction which means that the constant changes may affect mobility at times. People with reduced mobility may have difficulty navigating Park Güell. Please contact us with any questions; we will be happy to advise if this tour will be comfortable for you, or discuss how we can customize it to meet your needs.
For young children (ages 3-12) we recommend our shorter Gaudí for Families tour, which is led by experts specially trained in educating children.
