Isaac was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and engaging, and had a great sense of humor. I personally would have wished for a little extra time at some of the best photo spots, instead of just 1-2 minutter, as we did not have the time to take the walking tour again ourselves afterwards. Initially we only chose this guided tour, as no other tickets were available the day before we wanted to go, but I’m glad we ended up with The Touring Pandas.

Our guide provide great insights into Gaudi, how he thought, how he worked, and why he designed things the way he did. It was great info for later in the day when we visited La Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila and Casa Batllo.

Despite the rain, tour was amazing! Tour guide was quite knowledgeable and very friendly. She truly made it a wonderful experience! Thank you!

Marc was a terrific guide, very knowledgeable and personable.

Interesting tour to understand the concept of the park.
