Very informative! We would never have noticed all the details on our own. The headsets made it easy to hear in the crowds. Would definitely recommend this tour.
In our ten days trip , this was our last stop. It became highlights of our entire trip. This is a must visit attraction in Barcelona.
This was the best guided tour by Gorgi of the outside and inside of La Familia. His in depth explanation of Gaudi's masterpiece was informative and comprehensive. He did a GREAT job. Loved it!!
Informative tour, beautiful building with a rich history. Get tickets early because they sell out and you are stuck just looking at it from the outside.
The tour guide was knowledable. He could have been a little more engaging though, as he could have been a little fun.
Absolutely need the skip the line unless you have more time than normal. The place impresses and has so much symbolism that a guide or detailed study beforehand is needed. The amount of time was good and then you have as much after as you want. Our guide was knowledgeable, but a bit corny and sometimes his English was not clear. Overall informative.
Not a good guide. The organization took more than 40 minutes. Isabelle could not make an interesting story and her English was not good enough. We were counted numerous times. It was a big disappointment. Next time we'll just buy the audio guide from Sagrada Familia.
Amazing tour which demonstrates the true beauty in art and stain glass natural lighting. We look forward to seeing again after 2026 when its targeted for completion and then 2035 when the decorations are targeted. Beautiful!
This was our second visit to Sagrada Familia having visited first in 2017 with Viator. It was great to see the progress that has been made in two years and the Museum is a great addition to the experience. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. Although the tour group was large and the Basilica was crowded everything was managed well and organized. Highly recommended and we hope to return in 2026 when it will be completed.
Carlos or Charles was kept the tour interesting and relevant. 1.5 hour tour is just right. He is an excellent tour guide.
Did the fast track tour of Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. We learned so much from our guide. On time, clear explanations, strong English language skills. Great tour. Highly recommend. Separately, Sagrada Familia is an amazing place. Every aspect has deep Catholic symbolism. Just being there reinforces one's faith and belief in a higher power.
Isabella from Julias Tours was incredibly patient and her knowledge of the Sagrada was amazing. So informative, answered all questions, had a sense of humour and gave us time to take it all in. Definitely a place to visit. Awesome experience.
Great venue, not great guide. We took the English language guided tour and it was a waste of time and money. The guide was a nice person but she was not very knowledgeable of the venue in general and her English was not good at all. My wife and I took this same tour four years ago and it was amazing. This time we brought our oldest son, wife and three teenage sons and, unfortunately, the experience was a very disappointing one.
Excellent visit, check in was smooth and efficient. Group wasn’t too big nor too small, the tour guide was knowledgeable. She took us to a great spot for pictures then around the area to point out some of the important aspects of the building.
The guide was pleasant and we saw everything we wanted to even though it was one of the hottest days, it was a very Nice tour.
My only complaint is the information desk lady we asked for directions to your offices sent us completly in the wrong direction it was so unneccessary as a map of the area that was clear would have helped. Tour guide was very good :)
Guide was a bit fuzzy on details. But amazing place. Such fantastic use of light. A really nice change from your usual cathedral. Like it or hate it, you have to admire it
The church was amazing a d definitely worth visiting. We found Viator tour to be mediocre. Guide spoke English well however she had a very heavy accent and she spoke too fast making it difficult to understand her.
The tour was fantastic. Easy to find the Travel Guide office and meet our guide, Jordi. Very short walk (around the corner) to La Sagrada. He was extremely knowledgeable, polite, and well versed in the architectural and historical highlights (both inside and out). We really enjoyed this. It was my wife and I and two 10 year olds. Not too short, not too long. Just right. Highly recommend to all visitors.
This was an amazing tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide. There is no way that you would know all that your looking at without a guide to tell you about Gaudi's creation. We got into the cathedral without a wait which was also great as there were thousands of people all in/around. Probalby the best part of Barcelona.
This was a good tour of Sagrada Familia that matched the Viator description. The meeting point for the tour is right across the street which is convenient. The wait to get inside was minimal with the Fast Track entry.
Loved this tour! Our guide, Pedro, was so knowledgeable and not overwhelming with facts and history. He gave us exactly what we needed to know to fully enjoy the experience. Thanks again!!
Our tour guides name was Joseph and he had a lot of knowledge. This was a wonderful experience. We really injoyed the tour.
Our guide Vincet made all the difference. This has been one of the best tours I0ve ever done, Sagrada Familia might be my number 1 thing to see in Europe, this is just such an amazing place and out tour guide was fantastic. He was super knowledgeable, funny and enjoyable. Book this tour and ask for Vincet to be your guide, you wont regret it!
Paid extra for a Skip the Line tour and still had to wait 1/2 hour in the hot sun while other tour groups went in before us. Just traded one line for another! Should have saved the extra money and just stood in the regular line to get in.
As we were staying at the Sagrada Familia hotel it was a very convenient 10 minute walk to the travel bureau office to sign in for our midday tour. The tour was bang on time and Ignacio, our English- speaking tour guide- took us all into the Cathedral via the initial entrance, where we avoided any potential lengthy queues. Ignacio is a first rate guide, tremendously detailed 90 minute tour inside and out, my wife and I benefited from and English-only tour guide as opposed to a bilingual tour which I would thoroughly recommend to any visitor regardless of country of origin as it would avoid any confusion. We still had all the time in the world to take in the beauty of this splendid Cathedral on our own, but once again I would praise Ignacio's passion for his interest in this unique architectural wonder. Would recommend all travellers to this great city to pay it a visit.
Our guide was articulate, knowledgeable,humorous and deeply affective. I was so appreciative of this tour being our last BIG item in Spain. Our guide helped me re think some of life’s big picture issues. I would do it again❤️
Our guide was great, group was zesty and tour was very informative and easy. La Sagrada Família is beautiful and unique. It very much helped to have the guide to point out things you would not notice or know. Highly recommend.
Our guided tour was excellent. Our guide spoke good English, was educated and very knowledgeable of the Sagrada Familia. We had pre purchased our tickets, found the tour office and was greeted by our guide and off we went.
Magnificent architecture and breathtaking to see. You will not be disappointed. Highly Recommended. Thank you to the wonderful and informative tour guide.
My husband and I are bilingual, so we decided to take the tour in Spanish. Our female tour guide was excellent. She patiently explained fascinating details about the construction of the church and about a school at the site that Gaudi built for the workers’ children. (Just a reminder that even with “fast entry” it takes about 15-25 minutes to go through the metal detector before entering the facility.)
Everything was as advertised. The guide was both informative and funny. I wouldn’t hesitate to to recommend this tour to those that want to keep stress low and enjoyment high. One note...we had a 9am tour and it was considerably less busy than even two hours later.
Fantastic place to visit our guide was informative and helpful.The history and experience was so great and all I had hope for.
When we signed up we were under the impression the tour was limited to 6 people. There were 25. The tour guide was not good. He kept saying “you can learn more when you tour sol later”. He rushed ahead of the group and was hard to locate in the crowd. They said it was a 90 minute tour. This included the group waiting 10 mins for him to buy tickets and 15 mins to get through security. Actual tour time was 45 mins. Better off with self directed.
The symbolism in the cathedral made this attraction extremely interesting. Highly recommended to anyone spiritual or new to Barcelona.
Great experience— our guide was knowledgable and we certainly had easy access around this magnificent church!
The tour was very well organized and the tour guide was vey knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend - it is a must if in Barcelona
Tour was ok. The guide is very knowledgeable, but our “English” tour was English and Spanish. The guide spent half the time in each language, with too much time just standing around. We paid for an English tour and would have rated the tour higher if we got what we paid for, an English speaking tour.
We usually don't do tours but decided to for this location. Our guide was very informative and pointed out interesting articles in the church. We definitely learned a lot about the history and design that we would not have known if we had gone on our own.
It was raining so hard that we all got our shoes wet just by crossing the street from the tour meeting pint to the Basílica. But that did t stoped our guide. He showed us the inside of the church and event went outside when possible. Very professional and kind!
This was my first tour after arriving in Spain. It was an excellent way to start my trip.
Our tour guide was very informative and entertaining. Tour was just long enough .... approx. 1.5 hours and we had the option to stay inside and do more sight-seeing on our own. Skip-a-line was definitely the way to go as the regular lines to get in were crazy long, and we were not even in peak season! We were queued up in a special line and got in within 10 minutes.
