Reviews of our Complete Gaudi Day Tour
Wow the tour that Miriam provided in Barcelona was above and beyond our expectations. Her knowledge of Gaudi was extraordinary. We did the full day tour and it was worth of penny! This is not just a job to her it is a passion and we were so lucky to share her passion! Her extra little pieces of advice of places we should eat and see before we left were amazing. I would advise anyone truly passionate about Gaudi to take this tour with Miriam!
Our day with Marta at Foreverbarcelona was the best day of our entire stay. We got to see all the top sites, and learned SO MUCH about Gaudi on the history of the city, the Modernista movement, the culture of Spain at the time, and the architecture. Our day would have paled in comparison if we had visited the same sites in our own, without Marta. She wove the whole day into a story that built on itself, culminating in a sunset visit to Sagrada Familia. It was absolutely stunning. I recommend this tour wholeheartedly. Save up your money and do the day right, and have your best day in Barcelona with this tour and Marta at ForeverBarcelona. We will remember this day and tour for years and years to come.
We did the full day Barcelona private Gaudi tour plus a 2nd half day private tour . Our guide Marta was amazing. Her enthusiasm and love of Barcelona & Gaudi helped bring everything to life. She held my 11 year olds interest for a full day & a half! Everywhere we went the people working the sites were excited to see her and it made us feel like we were getting special vip treatment and access. Marta made sure to help us with suggestions and tips for the rest of our stay in Barcelona. She is also a great photographer ...the best family shots we have from the trip were the ones she took of us.
We’ve just returned from a lon weekend in Barcelona, where we had pre-booked with ForeverBarcelona an all day guided tour focussing on the works of Antonio Gaudi. Our guide Miriam exceeded our expectations in all respects and ensured we had all the best sights at the best times of day. Her tour provided an easy pre-history from which to grasp the aspirations of thinkers at the heart of Barcelona society at the turn of the 19th century, in which context Gaudi’s works are no longer perceived as fantasy-folly, but actually sit as naturally as rocks or trees on a mountain slope. The tour was in all respects well judged, balanced and “just enough”. Just enough walking, resting, cabbing… Just enough hustle-and-bustle, intermingled with quieter city squares… Just enough grand architectural vistas, countered with smaller intimate spaces… Just enough insight into larger civic society versus smaller personal anecdotes… A Catalan native, Miriam brought the city alive precisely because she delivers a tour that traverses the full scale of macroscopic spectacle and grand ambition right down to microscopic personal little illuminations, so that one is left touched by a glimpses of The People, The Person, and Society in between. All of this effortlessly and without pretension.
We did the all-day Gaudi tour and enjoyed it immensely. Javier was a knowledgeable, fun, friendly guide. We were very happy with the personalized tour.
