Our Partners

Barcelona Design Tours is proud to partner with the best design hotels and niche travel companies.

Architecture in Barcelona

Award-winning design hotels, art nouveau-era apartment buildings and 21st century skyscrapers built on a delightful network of promenades, parks and squares. From the moment you step off the plane at El Prat airport, it’s obvious that  the city is obsessed with design, architecture and style.

Barcelona Design Tours reveals the city’s long-term love affair with architecture. Our private and group tours give insight to the enduring legacy of Gaudí and modernisme – Barcelona’s signature architectural style – and lead you to the new urban developments, the revamped waterfront and beaches, and inner-city makeovers that make Barcelona so endlessly inspiring.

Custom tours

The rich architectural and design heritage of Barcelona is a living one that is constantly expanding and shifting. Our job is to explain and contextualise this heritage for both newcomers and repeat visitors – in a fun and visual way! Whether you are a group of friends visiting Barcelona for the first time, or perhaps you are a class of students with a particular educational programme in mind, or on corporate get-away, Barcelona Design Tours can put together a personalised experience in response to your specific requirements. Over the decades our guides have built up a network of contacts which allow us to access places and people that provide insight and inspiration. 

Art & Design in Barcelona

Barcelona’s modern art reads like a who’s who of the 20th Century masters Picasso, Miró, Dalí and Tapies still inspire the city today. Led by experts and curators, Barcelona Design Tours can take you inside the studios and galleries of the city’s emerging art districts, and take you to the graffiti and street art hot spots.

Design, from smart street furniture to spectacular modern interiors, is part of Barcelona’s DNA. On our private and group walking tours, we will introduce you to the city’s creative side in workshops, showrooms, restaurants and hotel rooftops, focusing on the furniture, objects and projects that are uniquely MADE IN SPAIN.

TESTIMONIALS

As a group of 12 Project Managers and Building Surveyors, we were a tough crowd to please, but Brian and Suzanne were excellent.

John Knowles, Managing Partner, UK

Brian showed us a side of the city I never would have found on my own and gave great background on the buildings, architects, and art periods.

Peggy Sijswerda, journalist, USA

Took my demanding, out of town, visitors on this tour, lovely but notoriously hard to please culture snobs, who loved every minute of it, charmed by their guide and utterly seduced by the clever itinerary.
