As you arrive in Barcelona and begin to admire its architecture, there is one name that keeps coming up - the name of Antoni Gaudí. Join us on a tour that will help you enter the mind of a genius while exploring some of his most iconic works. It doesn't take much to become enchanted by the fantastic world of Gaudí, and with the help of our local English-speaking guide, you will be in love with Barcelona forever! This 3-hour tour includes:
- Skip the line tickets to Casa Battló and Parc Guell
- Professional English-speaking guide
- Small groups of up to 18 people
- Shared transportation by air-conditioned bus
Skip the line at Casa Battló with your expert guide, who will lead you into discovering the brilliant and artistic mind of Antoni Gaudí. As you enter the house-turned-museum, your guide will explain the life of Gaudí and how he developed his unique art style. As you continue through the house, you'll begin to understand why many refer to it as the "House of Bones," as you'll discover tons of uneven lines and a skeletal form within Gaudís work. As you move through the house, your passionate guide will lead you and your group through years of history, discussing the house's different functionalities throughout time. From housing the wealthy Battló family, to serving as an insurance company's office space and now a beacon of Catalan art history, Casa Battló's detail and stories will leave you wanting to explore more of Gaudí's legendary works. Before you move to the next Gaudí site, you will climb to the roof of Casa Battló, often called the "back of a Dragon" because of its curvy foundation and colorful tiles.
We will continue our exploration following the high-end Passeig de Gracia road in search for more Gaudi inspiration. You will soon learn how the great artist inspired a whole series of names who have created the Barcelona of today. Our next stop will be another Gaudi residence - Casa Milà. Before you even arrive at this next Gaudí masterpiece, you may be able to pinpoint the building you're about to visit, based on its architectural similarity to Casa Battló. This time from the outside, we will admire its facade and discuss the evolution of Gaudí's work, as this is one of the last private residences that Gaudí designed. Learn why this house is referred to as La Pedrera ("Stone quarry") by the locals.
Once our exploration of the city center is over, we will hop in a luxury climate-controlled coach and head to our next destination, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our next stop is Parc Guell, envisioned by Gaudi as a luxury residential area outside of the Barcelona city center. You will learn all about Gaudi's colossal ideas for this complex, and why they actually never fully came to fruition. Nowadays, Parc Guell is the most popular park in Barcelona, and a fantastic place to see the city from above. Before your tour is over, there will be time for a scenic photo of the city from the trencadís-adorned balconies of the park, rising above its iconic Dragon Stairway.
Back to Center of Barcelona
After your visit to the Parc Guell, we will arrange a coach trip back to the center of Barcelona. You will have the option of staying longer and exploring Parc Guell on your own. However, you are welcome to join us on a ride back ,which will drop you off near another Gaudi masterpiece - Sagrada Familia.

I learned so much about Gaudi and his signature style with this tour. Now I want to mosaic my whole house! The sites we saw that he designed were incredible to behold and I was happy to see the views of the city from Park Guell also. Plus, our guide was fabulous and super receptive to my many questions!!
Perfect Gaudi Introduction
When I told people I was going to Barcelona, they said you have to see Gaudi's masterpieces! I had no idea what they were talking about, but I saw this tour on The Tour Guy and thought it would be perfect. And it was! I learned a lot about Gaudi's art style, how he began his artist's journey, and the inspirations for his masterpieces. I'm so glad I listened to my friends and I would encourage others to do this tour like I did!
My family had some time in Barcelona and this was a great way to spend it! We especially loved Casa Battlo, it was very good and so was Park Guell. Having a guide was so helpful and really helped us understand the history and architecture.
