Priority Access: Best of Barcelona Tour Including Sagrada Familia
On your way to the Sagrada Famlia, you’ll go through Passeig de Gracia, home to designer stores and two of Barcelona’s most renowned Antonio Gaudí buildings – La Pedrera and Casa Batlló.

You’ll then head to the oldest part of Barcelona, the Gothic Quarter, where you’ll leave the bus and enjoy a stroll through the narrow streets of medieval Barcelona. From there, travel back to the early Middle Ages, visiting the Jewish Quarter, the Royal Palace, the original 2,000-year-old Roman temple and part of the Cathedral.
Continue to the Born district, where you’ll have free time for a quick lunch before heading to the magnificent Santa Maria del Mar church, one of the most beautiful in Barcelona, where your tour ends at approximately 1pm.
Do you want to visit Park Güell and La Pedrera?
Upgrade to the full-day tour of Barcelona, and you'll continue to Park Güell. Enjoy a guided tour of the famous city garden, where you’ll be introduced to some of Gaudí’s most bizarre creations. Finally, you’ll visit one of Gaudí’s most famous buildings, La Pedrera (1-hour). You will skip the line again, and have an hour to visit interior of the building.

The tour was pretty complete with lots of walking and a bus ride. The guide was passionate and interesting. The only disappointment was that the end of the half day tour was not at the same staring point and we needed to get back on our own 4 kl away from start,
We had the best tour guide her name is Gloria she was very animated in her descriptions of each part of the tour. Bus driver was great as well. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a wonderful high lighted tour and a great guide.
This tour was Fabulous! I can’t say enough how wonderful the experience was from the time we showed up to Viator office and meeting our guide RODRIGO “Rod”. WOW can’t say enough about how knowledgeable he was of everything we saw and did. Be even went above and beyond on telling us things we would NEVER have learned had it not been for Rod AMAZING guide. I hope he never leaves what he’s doing and we hope we see him again
I expected to see more of Barcelona. We started on a walk through Gothic district which was great but we really didn’t see much of Barcelona. If we had done the full day it would have been better I suppose but I think that it would be best to buy your tickets in advance to Sagrada Familia and Park Gruel and do your own tour. I would also go early in the am because crowds are way too crazy. We didn’t get to Sagrada Familia until noonish and it was crazy. Also the tour guide gave her own insights into Gaudi’s masterpiece and it would have been more interesting to get one of the audios and listen at your own pace. Although our guide was lovely and smart and funny, I was disappointed in this tour.
Very good tour! About 50% walking and the rest on a nice bus. Church was great and a "must see". Also enjoyed the visit to La Perada home designed by Gaudi.
Judie was an excellent tour guide. Enjoyed Sagrada Familia in particular. Details of the building, lighting, carvings added to the experience.
We were disappointed for two reasons. The firs 90 minutes of the tour were on foot, which we did not expect. There was no hotel pickup requiring a taxi cab ride to the starting point. But access to the Sagrada Familia was without waiting. And our guide was very knowledgeable.
Loved our tour guide Gloria, she’s excellent at giving the historical facts without making it just a history lesson. I don’t think I’d ever try to see Sagrada Familia and the other Gaudi highlights without the priority access.
Gloria was a great guide and provided a good overview of the city. In some places I did feel rushed as we had to keep the time (like Sagrada Familia and Park Guell). Overall I liked the pace. I didn't feel we needed 2 hours for lunch and could have used that time to see other places.
Exhausting day but worth it. Lots of walking in the heat, but only way to see Sagrada, Park Guell, etc. Knowledgable guide made Sagrada a true wonder. Be warned the tour ends at Le Pedererer (spelling) and you are left there, not at where the tour started. Resulted in cab rides or long walks back to hotel. Good tour and would recommend if time limited.
We were so happy we booked this tour. Migel was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable and you could tell he had a genuine love for Barcelona. This tour covered more than we expected to see in our short visit. Thank you Migel Nichola and Barry Western Australia
well organised tour that covered the most important sites all in one day. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable
If you have limited time to spend in Barcelona this is an amazing tour that introduces you to many of the city’s highlights. Our guide, Gloria, was simply amazing. She connected with every member of the tour making them feel welcome and well cared for. She showed us the Cathedral, St Maria Del Mar, the Jewish Quarter, the Park, Montjuïc, Sagrada Família and Gaudi’s Casa Mila. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes, there is a lot to see and do on this tour! If you are able to request a guide we highly recommend Gloria!
My wife and I did the best of Barcelona full day tour 7/13/19. Our guide whose name escapes me was excellent. We started off with 11/2 hour walking tour of the gothic quarter. Visited la Sagrada Família,Montjuic mountain with lovely views, casa mila, park guell, la Pedrera, passed the Olympic stadium, plaza espana and so much more. It was a long tiring day and well worth it. Saw and learned a lot.
A great way to cover a lot of ground and hit the major sights in 1 day. Tour guide Gloria was fabulous! Super-knowledgeable and funny and friendly.
We had a wonderful tour experience of the best sites in Barcelona with our tour guide, Judith. We first had an overview bus tour of the major sites in the city with a guided stop at Sagrada Familia. Judith was very knowledgeable and entertaining while describing the various sites in the city and features of the Basilica! After the Basilica tour, we had an excellent walking tour through the Gothic Section and Jewish Sections of the city. We had an hour break for lunch before resuming our tour with a guided walk though Park Guell. Judith continued to provide excellent contextual information on the sites we were seeing. Finally, our tour ended with an audio guided tour of the Casa Mila. Thanks to Judith, it was a very entertaining and informative day!
Sergi, our guide, was very entertaining and engaging. He spoke good English and made us think about answers to what he was telling us, so that we were able to build up our background knowledge in an interesting way. He would make a great history teacher! The tour covered all the things we wanted todo in Barcelona in one full busy day!
Our tour guide Miguel was entertaining, knowledgeable and funny. He made the experience fantastic. We did the whole day Barcelona tour. You start with a walking tour then get on a van and are taken to some great sights around town. The whole tour is filled with commentary and historical facts throughout. Overall this is a "must do" experience when in Barcelona.
We had a good, knowledgeable guide. I really enjoyed this tour. La Sagrada Familia and Park Guell were amazing. The skip the line pass for La Sagrada Familia is a must. I highly recommend this tour.
The rainy day did not deter our tour guide. She was so lovely and so knowledgeable. She did not stop talking and we walked so far that day. You can tell she absolutely loves her job and we wish her luck. We learnt heaps.
Learned so much and enjoyed the tour tremendously, words can't express. For the first time in Barcelona this tour was the best for a great introduction to this beautiful city. This tour is a must do!
My husband, kids (12 and 10) and I did this tour on our first full day in Barcelona and it was wonderful! Our tour guide, Sergio, was very knowledgeable and friendly. He went out of his way to make sure everyone was happy with the tour and all questions were answered. This tour was a great way to see all the highlights of Barcelona in 1 day. We did the full day tour and I really felt like we saw all the major tourist spots in the city. My only recommendation for the company is that they provide bottled water on the bus. It was extremely hot and humid the day of our tour and most of us had to stop at a convenience store and spend 2.50 Euro for a bottle of water... it just would have been a nice touch, and one we have experienced with other companies. Overall, I highly recommend this tour!
Cannot say enough about our all day guide, Sergio. Very knowledgeable and funny to boot. He answered all the questions thrown his way and made this one of the best experiences within the city of Barcelona. I learned so much. Highly recommend it!
We did this tour on Day 2 of our vacation. It gave us a great over all view of the city including the history and some of the architecture. Sergio was very knowledgeable and fun and and contributed to the the enjoyment of the tour. Highly recommend this tour.
We saw so much due to our driver and guide and had a fabulous tour. Perfect weather and a low tourism day made it even better. An incredible tour! Don’t miss it.
When I was considering booking the Priority Access: Best of Barcelona Including Sagrada Familia Tour I thought it was too expensive. However, once I considered all that was included in the cost including the priority access, and after I had read alot of the reviews, I decided to book for my wife and myself.The Tour was worth every single Euro from start to finish. Our guide Sergei was extremely polite and friendly and was very knowledgeable. He told us so much about Gaudi and the attractions we were visiting and made us feel like VIPs as he led us through past the queues! The tour was so well organised that we saw a whole lot more of Barcelons'a main attractions in one day than we would have managed ourselves in 3 days.This tour is a must if you want to see the main attractions in Barcelona and don't have much time to waste in long waiting lines. It was worth every single Euro and more. It's the best tour available.
This was an incredible experience -- Judith, our tour guide, was absolutely incredible and made the tour the totally awesome experience it was. She was so knowledgable and kind. Judith brought the city to life with her knowledge of the history of Barcelona and Gaudi was amazing. If I could, I would have taken Judith's tour over and over again if possible. Don't miss out on this experience!
