Onno was very flexible when we couldn't make the trip on a scheduled day and came a day later, we appreciate it very much. It was a good hour spent and he is truly passionate about the topic. However, we took another Gaudi tour the day after and learned too much more. Don't get me wrong, he was great and it's totally worth it to get the basics. Tip him well!!

Onno is a great tour guide - he has a lot of knowledge about SagradaFamilia, he knows how to deliver information, he mixes it with a spur of humour without playing the clown like some guides do - it is just a pleasure to listen to his words. Even for those who don‘t speak English as their mother tongue, it is easy to understand Onno as he speaks very clear and well pronounced. Really worth 5 stars! *****

This was a great experience, and I learned so much that I didn't know about before regarding Gaudi, some of the other architects that followed him, and the basilica itself.
