Our guide was great! So enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The tour itself is a must do! Especially if you are only in Barcelona for a short time. It knocks out a good chunk of the city highlights without having to wait in line for hours.
Thank you Maribel for an enjoyable tour. Although we were not able to do the Tower Climb due to weather, we thoroughly enjoyed the tour and learned so much from Maribel.
The tour lasted over 5 hours and Alessia did an excellent job leading a group of 15 people whose needs varied. To begin with, I was totally blown away by Gaudi's work so I asked her a number of questions, including his work that was not included in the tour. She was very knowledgable about Gaudi and his work and answered all of my questions. I didn't expect her to know about Gaudi's work that was not part of the tour, but she knew everything. It seemed clear that she herself was also very passionate about Gaudi which I think makes her a wonderful guide. She also did a great job dealing with some of the issues we had. There was an issue related to booking so we had an extra participant whose ticket was not secured in advance. I thought she would tell that person to leave the tour, but instead she secured an extra ticket on the spot and kept everyone till the end of the tour. There was also a person who wanted to rest instead of walking the park with the group, and if you see the crowd in the Guell Park, you would understand how daunting it could be leaving someone in the park. But she honored his desire and successfully found him later. She is a real pro! I cannot recommend enough the Gaudi Tour with Walks and Alessia!
