Super experience with a excellent guide named Bea. She really brought the house to life and her enthusiasm was contagious. Well worth the money and although there are audio guides available in the house, the experience isn't comparable to a real life guide who loves what they are doing.

Amazing tour of Comillas blessed with lovely weather and a wonderful guide (Gabriella.) Saw all the sights I wanted to see with the highlight being Caprico de Gaudi Would totally recommend this tour - 10 out of 10 !

The tour guide responded individually to the needs of the tour group and was very competent. Recommended at any time.

Handsome!!!! The guide, clear, very friendly, cordial and pleases him as well as the driver. unmissable ride

Perfect! Another work of the genius amazes even the smallest of the house
