Full description
Discover the world of the visionary architect Antoni Gaudí on a 2.5-hour guided tour of Barcelona's magical Park Güell, and discover one of the sites that made this architect so revered.

Opened to the public in 1922 it was declared a World Heritage by UNESCO in 1984. Located in a residential suburb, it was financed by the businessman Eusebi Güell and meticulously planned by Gaudí with waterfalls, a market place and square, gardens and impressive architectural constructions. See the characteristic features of modernism with original Gaudí creations (presence of nature, broken tile mosaics and impossible shapes).

During the guided tour, you will enjoy a mix of highly advanced technical engineering and fantasy decoration. You will see the famous mosaic dragon, serving as an overflow for the underground water cistern and the curved mosaic bench around the square, which simultaneously acts as a seat, balcony and wonderful work of art known worldwide.

Our trip was modified to its detriment to cater for guests with special needs. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly but don’t feel like we saw park to its best advantage unfortunately. We didn’t get a chance to wander ourselves within time frame of tour, which we were expecting, due to delays and detours due to some guests.

Very nice and knowledgeable guide as well as bus driver. The earpiece technology worked very well. Just a long ride where you had a look around for a while on your own before returning.
