Our Modernism tour in Barcelona will let you fall in love with the city and with this artistic movement that quite simply sought the utmost beauty in everything it did. As Gaudí himself said: “Beauty is the radiance of truth.” That’s why we believe this tour will allow you to really get to know Barcelona.

You do not have to tip the guide at all, since the price you will pay for the tour already takes into account their work.

The Modernism tour is one of the most interesting ways to get know the city in depth, but Barcelona is not a city you can get to know in one day, so let us recommend you some more tours to take on your holiday: Poble Sec tour, tour of US culture in Barcelona, laberint d’horta’s tour, etc.
