“Preparing the tour: The communication with Lorenzo was prompt and smooth, both email and phone call. During the tour: Lorenzo was extremely well prepared, and welcomed all kind of questions from the Seoul delegation. He adapted the tour to their wishes, spending more time in some locations. Not counting his own time, Lorenzo continued the tour after the agreed time (we started late because of delay on our side), and the group very much appreciated his flexibility. Lorenzo shared his extensive knowledge of this district in a very friendly way, making architectural aspects accessible to the audience. Many thanks for the professionalism! Conclusion: strongly recommended!”

J. C., Ecole Nationale d'Administration (ENA), France | Premium Half-day Tour | July 2016

“After having stated our wishes we left the complete organisation and all decisions about projects and visits to Lorenzo. That is the way to do it, I recommend it strongly. Everything was organized perfectly, and we saw a lot of interesting projects, while always getting the political and urbanistic perspective as well. We had a great time. It was very rewarding both in architectural content and in regard to having fun as a group.”

S. R., Akzente Architektur & Landschaft, Germany | Premium Multi-Day Tour | April 2016

“All seven architect where very pleased about the tour. There was a very good deal of information and also the level of quality was very high. It was fun to see the other side of Barcelona and see how the historical plan develops and evolves trough time. We’d also got to see the urban, planologic side but also modern architecture. The seven Dutch architects we’re very pleased and the tour was a true added value for the first Dutch Trespa Event. Hopefully more events will follow and the guide tour by Lorenzo will be one of the regular parts of such an event.”

Any questions?

How do we move around Barcelona city centre?2021-01-12T13:08:23+01:00

Tours around the city centre are made on foot, as we find this the best and sometimes the only way to move around.

And what about tours further away from the city centre or in the outskirts of Barcelona?2021-01-12T13:08:23+01:00

When visits cover longer distances, we move around on bikes or buses.

If it rains, will the tour be cancelled?2021-01-12T13:08:23+01:00

In case of rain we continue with the visits, unless there is a risk of torrential rain. 

Are these tours suitable for people with reduced mobility?2021-10-27T18:58:11+01:00

Most of our Private Walks are accessible to people with limited mobility –including wheelchair patrons– and their companions. If you have any specific needs, please do let us know when booking your tour with us so that we can help make your visit as enjoyable as possible.
