Starting at the meeting point at 9:30am, the tour begins with an introduction to the character of Antoni Gaudí i Cornet (1852-1926). There is an explanation of the four facades and the views outside the Sagrada Familia (in about 30 minutes). Skipping the line, you will go into the temple and see all the details of the Gaudí's architecture, the best way to understand the architect.
This tour is available as separate from the Park Güell (be sure to select the right option at the time of the booking)
Once the interior temple tour is finished, the cars will be waiting to take you to the Park Güell in a 10 minutes drive.
Skipping the line at the Park Güell, you will begin walking through the enclosure of this magnificent park. Starting by the magical multicolored mosaic dragon, the icon of the park. Your guide will explain the park’s history and where Gaudí found his inspiration. The gardens, now open to the public, were created for the private enjoyment of the neighbors living in the urbanization. Everyone is now able to walk through this expressive architecture of Gaudí.
The end of the tour is at the main entry of the park. The guide will advise you how to return, if necessary.

We had to meet at an alternative place for the tour. Was told to take a Taxi that would not cost much and to arrive 15 min. early. The taxi was expensive and the guides were not there early. I would do these activities separately. Not enough time to wander the park. The good part was our guide Marta. Very knowledgeable about Gaudi and his work.
Our tour got off to a slow start. We started at the Parc Guell instead of Sagrada Familia, and we stalled quite a while before starting to wait for some people. I felt like we missed some of the park and did not get a very thorough explanation of what we were seeing. However, our visit to Sagrada Famlia was fantastic. I felt we got a lot of information about the building, which allowed us to fully appreciate it. This is definitely a "must" tour when visiting Barcelona.
Great tour! Lupe was wonderful and Gaudi's work is really spectacular; so glad I got the chance to see it. But just FYI: we didn't know that the tour concluded at La Sagrada Familia and we had to get a cab back to our hotel. Wasn't a big deal though as there are plenty of cabs there all the time.
The venues were beautiful and the your itself was very interesting with a very animated and knowledgeable guide.
Confusion with regards to meeting point at Park Guell. Guide had supplied an address that did not exist and stated he would be carrying a burgundy umbrella when he had a blue one. The start of the tour was also delayed by 25 mins waiting for no shows - this was avoidable
Since the meeting point changed to further into the city....our taxi took longer getting there and we arrived at 10:15 for a 10:00 tour. I texted on the way and realized that Sylvia, who had been contacting me all along.....was NOT the guide. She was in a local office there and then I knew it was a contracted local group and I had no way of speaking to the guide! They went inside Park Guell and the attendants said there were no more tickets for the entire day! Also, there were two other ladies who had a train that was late and they were in the same situation. By the time we talked to several people in the office......we found out our guides' name but it was too late. We not only lost money but time and then we discovered from Park Guell that they had other tours later that day and we had to pay again and come back at 5:15 for that tour. We did diligently stay in contact with the office to catch up with the group and ride with them for the Sagrada part. It was fabulous and our Park Guell tour guide for the PARK was also excellent later that day. Bottom line........VIATOR is a big company contracting with many small local companies and it's best to go direct! We got "automated" email responses when we called them. Know your guide and have their number or What's App! Make it easier on yourself!
First, our tour guide was good. It was a hot day. The park needs to add some benches where old people can sit and listen to the tour guides. The person at the tour company recommended we take a cab to the park. We said we have the Hop on, Hop off tour bus and we will use that. If the tour person would have said the bus stops over 7 blocks from where you turn up the hill for the 1/2 mile climb we would have taken a cab. She did not say that. Also the tour guide talk at times too long while we were standing in the sun. She was, however, very interesting and knowledgeable. I would recommend her to anyone.
The guide Marta was amazing. She was very knowledgeable about everything on the tour and made the tour fun. Highly recommended
Our guide Marta was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Parc Güell was very beautiful and interesting but Sagrada Familia was by far the most beautiful church we ever saw. The interior is beyond amazing. This tour makes you realize what a genius Gaudi was. A man so far ahead of his time. Highly recommend.
her english wasvery good , kind personality and helpful. Very familiar with history and the town . Nice tour !! love it !!
Our tour guide was very passionate about the tour and had a breadth of information. I felt it was a little too detailed about architecture and measurement than I could absorb.
1st my original booking was messed up. I arrived to go on the morning tour and no tour guide turned up. My booking was confirmed online.Apparently there was mix up with the booking. There was other people in the same situation. The tour operator was difficult to get in touch with. Finally I got to speak to someone and I had to go on an afternoon tour which messed up my itinerary. I was not very impressed. The tour itself was ok, the tour guide was very knowledgeable. However it was so busy at the Cathedral, it was pretty spectacular and great to experience it.
Awesome guide! Highly recommend! Very knowledgeable and made the experience interesting and a great day of touring.
I especially enjoyed La Sagrada Familia. The architecture snd sculptures are amazing. Our tour guide was excellent. The combination of La Sagrada and Park Guell was a good way to see both locations easily within one day.
Trip to the cathedral could not of gone better the guide was superb great knowledge and a great sense of humour highlight recommend this trip
We called Viator to see if we could Will you schedule the second half of the tour. Fabio did a great job of letting us do the park with Martha on the next day. We were very happy with the tour.
Our tour guide was very well spoken and knowledgeable. This was my first time using Viator , and after this experience we will use this service everytime we travel.
Had a wonderful time on this tour our guide was really great and very knowledgeable about both parts of this tour and was great with question! i would definitely suggest this tour to others!
This small group tour is essential for these two very crowded venues. Jaime is clearly a Gaudi expert and passionate about his subject - you will learn so many details about both the cathedral and park that might be missed on a larger tour or on your own. However, if all you want is a brief overview, this tour is not for you!
This was a very good tour for those interested in the history, architecture and playfulness of the genius Gaudi. Our guide David made everything interesting and accessible to those of us who knew little at the start. I was so glad to hear the interesting details that one simply cannot get by just wandering around or even with an audio guide. Very pleased.
Bit chaotic in the very begining (since lots of teams started at the same time), but very good because of a mximum 12 people group. Very informartive and well working guide (can’t remember his name - he’s german and lives in Bcn for 50 years) Thanks, it was really interesting and worth of every euro!
What an amazing experience to see these unbelievable constructions. David was a fantastic guide who informed us about so many aspects of both places. And he had some computer pictures to help us compare and see the Familia Sagrada at different times of the day. I would definitely recommend Viator for this tour.
Marta our guide was amazing and extremely knowledgeable - the entire tour went smoothly - we learned more things than you can imagine - there is no way to do either of these things without a tour guide like Marta - you will miss too much of the history. Worth every single penny.........
This was a really fun tour and we could not had a better guide. She was so wonderfully prepared and so knowledgeable. It was the highlight of my brief stay in Barcelona. I learned a lot of history and the Catalonia region as an added bonus.
We visited in Jan 19 which was kind of off season and there was not much of a crowd.The tour was good , and Anna, our guide was knowledgable, patient and charming and filled us in with the finer details during the walkabout of the tour.One got to spend close to about 2 hrs in ththe Sagrada ( the guides and all tours also suggest a similar time frame) which I feel is insufficient to soak in the entire ambience, admire the architecture marvel, and revel in the atmosphere.You need a good 3 hrs in the sagrada out of which ( my personal opinion) , a minimum 1 hr is reqd to walk thru the museum to understand the thought process and the history of the construction.The museum, of course, is a definate must. Park Guell lived up to its reputation and it was a good idea to take the conbined tour. Anna lived up to the expectatins of a competent guideJust outside the Park Guell you have the 20 mins 4D Gaudi experience which is totally avoidable and a waste of money. Capt Preet Lamba
Our guide, Anna, was fantastic! She is so enthusiastic and passionate about these sites and it transfers to her tour and the participants. Her description of the facades and inside of the Sagrada Familia were informative and entertaining. She also gives us great insight into the concept of Parc Guell and Gaudi’s vision and foresight. Well worth our time and money!
Our guide David used his knowledge and experience at both sites to make this a wonderful and informative visit. With his help we were able to see more, learn more and avoid the crowds.and appreciate the history, planning and story of the sites. He was well versed and very pleasant to spend our day with.
