We had an absolutely amazing first day in Barcelona thanks to Miguel’s expertly lead and wonderfully informative Gaudi and Barcelona Modernism tour. Because of COVID, my family of 4 were the only participants on this weekday event and Miguel was every bit the perfect host. We really felt like we were seeing the city with a close friend.

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.
