Visit Antoni Gaudí's four masterpieces in town: Park Güell, the Sagrada Família basilica, Casa Batlló and Casa Milà. This tour allows you to go inside the buildings and visit their magnificent rooftops. All of them are declared World Heritage Site by the UNESCO.
Park Güell: enjoying a stroll trough this magical gaudinian scenery is a pleasant experience for all kinds of visitors. Built between 1900 and 1914 as a luxurious gated community, this 30 Acre green patch is where Gaudí's colorful fantasy is at its best, surprising you in every corner.
The Sagrada Família basilica: Gaudí's masterpiece. We will visit this magnificent, monumental temple that's still in construction since 1882. Given its giant size, we approach it from a distant perspective before going inside. Its inner structural complexity and amazing decoration will probably let you speechless. In the small museum we'll find some of Gaudí's most creative and advanced workshop tools: an evidence of the very first steps into 3D construction projects ever to appear worldwide.
Casa Batlló, refurbished in 1905 by the architect A. Gaudí, shows a splendid, undulated colorful façade recalling the watery surface of a lake. The gradually evolving color tiles of the rooftop imitate the back of a mighty dragon... or a fish. We visit the Batlló's apartment: a delight for anyone, given all delicate details and the astonishing unique decoration. Once on the roof, dozens of colorful chimneys will welcome us disguised as big, cheerful clown hats.
Casa Milà, also known as La Pedrera (Catalan for Stone Quarry), is second to none as an urban apartment block. Constructed from 1906 to 1912, this gorgeous stone building provokes a striking visual impact: its façade, imitating 7 ocean waves, has scattered scrap metal seaweeds as balcony railings and the roof is crowned by a set of aw-inspiring warrior-like chimneys. After visiting the rooftop and attic, we see one of the apartments, dressed like a century ago.

We were sparked. Beside the thing we did expect on a private tour like this - we only were 4 participants - we got a real good insight in the temper and way of life of the Catalan people. And the guide also booked us a table at a totally hip and overcrowded tapas bar.
We liked the tour a lot. It was very detailled and competent.
Very informative, exciting and with a good sense of humour.
