Great tour
Shelley_T, Sept 2023
Guadalupe was a wonderful tour guide. She was very knowledgable and easy to understand. I would recommend this tour.
Keith_M, Sept 2023
This was an incredible tour. We learned so much about the building of the Basilica and what certain things meant and what they were. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and pointed out several things we would have overlooked. Our guide was David.
Margie_S, Sept 2023
Excellent tour guide- very organized and informative regarding the history and current news Repeatedly offered opportunities for questions before continuing to next topic
Janice_G, Sept 2023
Excellent tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. I highly recommend this guided tour.
Great tour guide
Sibylla_O, Sept 2023
Our tour guide had great knowledge about the building i.e. church and she managed to show us the great light effects that are in this church. She answered all questions and did also a very good outside tour. I can recommend this tour if you are interested in the history of the church. We also did the tour. This note is for those who have difficulties going steep stairs down, because there is only an elevator going up, there is no extra light in the staircase hallway , but the views are exceptional.
Informative tour, overall...
Donald_R, Sept 2023
Informative tour, overall pleasant. Was difficult to find the tour guide at the meeting point. No signs and the guide was not at the spot they said. Others was complaining as well
Incredible design. Note on Towers.
Athena_P, Sept 2023
It's not 'Fast Track'/skip the line; There's still a line to wait in. We waited for guide to purchase the tickets for the group then went through the group line. The guide, David, was good: thorough explanations. There should have been a Note in the description on the Towers. You go up in an elevator (7 at a time), and then must walk down (single file) a very narrow spiral stairs. I would not recommend if you are a person of size. It was 450 steps down, and the width was approximately 28" (73 cm). After the tour you can wander about, take more photos and go to the museum. Below there is a museum. At the time we went on a Monday afternoon, room with Gaudi's crypt was closed until 7pm so we didn't see that.
A must do!
Joe_T, Sept 2023
Wonderful guide very knowledgeable and friendly. He had photos of the light coming into the windows in all seasons so we could see the different colors. The church is spectacular.
Brittany_W, Sept 2023
Rosa was extremely knowledgeable and clearly passionate about sharing with others. Very organized and thorough. Great tour!
The tour guide was very...
David_R, Sept 2023
The tour guide was very good. The one reason for the 3 stars is because I bought the tour with towers only to learn during the tour that there is an elevator that takes you up to the towers but then you have to walk down the entire way. We were told is equivalent to a 30 story building. I could not do that but I had paid for it. That part truly sucks.
Our guide was wonderful...
Lisa_K, Sept 2023
Our guide was wonderful but it was too crowded and hot for us to be in a tour group. We would have preferred to walk the park by ourselves or had a private tour where we could go at our own pace.
Don’t miss the Sagrada Família
Suzanne_W, Sept 2023
The most amazing place. Our guide was very knowledgeable and also entertaining. Fascinating stories attached to such a historical building.
Our tour guide, Carlos,...
Valerie_L, Sept 2023
Our tour guide, Carlos, was so nice and patient. He knew so much about the history of the cathedral and answered all questions. I love to tahr yours if historical places because the guides give so much insight you wouldn’t have. We did the tower too! Expect to be there for 2+ hours… amazing!
Informative-but the audio...
Carol_R, Sept 2023
Informative-but the audio equipment was bad -hard to hear clearly given that the guide had a strong Spanish accent speaking English
Great tour
Freida_M, Sept 2023
A very good tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Even with fast track we still had a wait at the beginning for security (and then the headsets) which delayed us by about 15mins.
The cathedral is amazing!
Linda_A, Sept 2023
The cathedral is amazing! Our guide provided great insight into the history and design elements so we could fully appreciate our experience.
A 'must do' tour in Barcelona
Richard_M, Sept 2023
We enjoyed our tour with Rosa as our guide. She was fun and knowledgable. Even though the place was super busy, we were able to find our separate spaces for our group, enjoy the sites and the history.
Must see in Barcelona
Diane_H, Sept 2023
Amazing structure and tour. Our guide Guadeloupe was very knowledgeable and made our tour!! We had no wait to get in and the final tower tour was spectacular
Must see in Barcelona
Daniel_G, Sept 2023
Our guide was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. This is a must see when visiting Barcelona. The history and architecture is amazing.
Sagrada visit
Jerry_J, Sept 2023
Poorly organized. Group organizer showed about 3 minutes prior to start then led us to the group guide who was stationed about 3 blocks from the Sagrada.
