Our guide, Pia, was very good. She was enthusiastic about architecture. I would not have noticed many details that she pointed out. It was very educational. A bit of a walking lecture. We were given listening devices so there was no problem hearing her.

Our 4 person group toured the city streets with a landscape architect Daniela for four hours. She told and showed us how the city has developed from 1859 to today. It was a fascinating way to get to know the city and it's history. The one thing that we always will remember from the tour is the courage of the Barcelona city, architects and landscape architects to implement even the more unusual plans. In addition, this four-hour session increased the understanding of how much urban planners and landscape architects need to know and to take into account when making plans.

Our guide Pia was funny, passionate and clearly knew her stuff. My engineering grandson and son-in-law would have loved it but as non-architects we did too. Perfect combination of the technical and non-technical, engineering, architecture and history. Best architecture tour I have ever had and headphones were a plus. No matter where you stood you could hear Pia’s commentary . Couldn’t recommend more highly.

I studied engineering and architecture in school 30+ years ago, so it's been a dream to come to Barcelona and experience Gaudi. This week my dream came true, and while reading a book or informational signs or getting a general tour is nice for background information, to truly understand the buildings, the architects, and the designers, and most importantly understand the "why?", you need a tour by an expert. Pia did a wonderful job leading our group of 11 on the Gaudi Tour, providing earphones for folks to ensure they'd be able to hear her on the sometimes noisy city streets, and making the 3-hours fly by. I think most of us would have continued following her around the city and listening to her stories for several more hours. She put the history of the area into context, added in building code requirements, as well as the water and sewer infrastructure, and had boards with maps and photos along the way. There was so much I learned, it was hard to take it all in, but I loved every minute of it. Next time I'm in Barcelona, I will definitely take another tour from this firm. They are top notch, and well worth it.

Our tour guide was exceptionally friendly and intelligent. She took the time to draw examples of architectural concepts and explain details of engineering. We were very lucky to have a College Professor show us around.

As journalists, we travel for a living and generally shun guided tours, preferring to find out things by ourselves. But boy, were we wrong this time: The Gothic to Modern tour was simply spectacular. Give the credit to Pia, an architect and university-level architecture lecturer who made a three-hour stroll through the old city into a genuinely absorbing master course in history, sociology and design. We'd walked the area for three days before the tour and thought we knew it well, but Pia's expertise taught us that we'd only been looking at the buildings -- not really seeing the cues that spoke to their history and the stages of the city's growth. We left wanting to buy books on Barcelona architecture and history to see what else was there. Barcelona is a magical place, but both of us would agree that the tour was perhaps the highlight of our week-long stay. (And no, we weren't paid or otherwise induced to write this. It's all true.) Put this at the top of your to-do list if you're going there.

Great architecture tour with Thomas a young german architect working in Barcelona. He shared his passion for Gaudi and Barcelona architecture with our group during the 3 hrs tour which turned into 4hrs. Taking time to answer all our questions and sharing his knowledge of this beautiful city. I highly recommend for an enjoyable overview of the city’s architecture history.
