Our guide gave us lots of history and pointed out sights inside that we wouldn't have known about as well as gave us history on the carvings and statues outside. Sagrada Familia is beautiful, especially the stained glass from inside. He knew just where to stand to get the full affect.

Our guide was terrific, clear and answered questions. I am so glad we used this service as there was so much to learn and skipping the long lines was worth it. It was easy to meet them as they are right next to the Sagrada. Would definitely recommend this service

This tour was the right length (approx 1.5 hours) and not at all boring, as some "church tours" can be. Our guide was very knowlegeable about Gaudi and his design ambitions., and was clever at showing us the ways in which Gaudi connstructed the church to showcase as[pects of Christ's life and and the symbolism of his life, death adn resurrection.

Our guide, Marc, was very thorough and answered any questions that we had. He was great and gave detailed information about all parts of the cathedral.

It was a good tour to see inside and guide was helpful got lots of information. Saw the outside with your tour last year this was great. Easy to get to from travel agency. We had audio speaker so could hear guide and not rushed.

Great guide, no fuss experience, everything they said it would be. Certainty skipped any lines. Easy to locate ticket office.

Booking the small group, skip the line tour ahead of time for the Sagrada Familia is a must since the line-ups are so incredibly long. And when you get there, you'll understand why! The building is a marvel; Gaudi a genius. And the audio-phone headsets were great so you could hear the detailed explanations along the way. The only problem was that our guide had a very heavy accent which made it difficult to understand at times, but hey, it was a fabulous tour. This was my second time visiting the Sagrada so I was able to translate and explain to my folks:) And they bought the book.

What a great tour. I recomend doing this tour with a guide as you would not appreciate the detail as explained by the guides

The Sagrada Familia tour is worth the money. I would highly recommend paying extra for the skip the lines and guided tour in your own language. It's a sight to behold.

Our Guide Christina had such a passion for the church. She was informative and enthusiastic. I was a crowded day but she took her time and gave us a full description of the history and the future of the church building.

Very entertaining and informative. Really brought Sagrada Familia to life! Our guide was wonderful. Really recommended.
• Submitted 05 Nov 2019
Our guide Vincent was not only very knowledgeable but humorous, fun, and efficient. The information shared really made the place come to life. I can’t imagine just coming to such an unusual attraction and just looking without knowing the “why” behind the building. The Família Sagrada is one of those must see Barcelona attractions like the Eiffel Tower in Paris or the Vatican in Rome.

The Sagrada Familia is possible the most impressive cathedral in Spain. The work is truly amazing and our guide was great in explaining the history, construction and the details. eh agency located across the street from he site was very easy to find and everyone was very helpful I highly recommend.

Would definitely recommend this tour the information we were given outside by the guide was fantastic which you wouldn’t get if you just got a normal entry then she gave us all the information about the inside once in as well a must to see couple of other groups going inside too but didn’t wait very long
• Submitted 04 Nov 2019
Gaudi buildings are truly amazing but his foresight for this cathedral is a total wow! you NEED skip the line timed tickets or you will wait forever to get in. You may want a tour guide with small groups like this one which was great. Or you can do skip the line with an audio guide. But you must go see this place, the details are just WOW.
• Submitted 30 Oct 2019
The tour was great our guide was super knowledgeable and informative . The only thing is that the church is so busy with tours there is no skip the line as we still had to wait one hour. But I did learn that if you take the morning tour at 9 am then it’s muck quicker to get in

Gemme was both knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I enjoyed both her presentation and her level of detail that spoke to all levels of people in the group.
• Submitted 28 Oct 2019
After several visits viewing the exterior with a guide, we finally had time for an interior tour. Totally amazing! Expected the usual ornate cathedral but the design allowing so many different light colors was unexpected. So many unusual pillar designs to reflect Gaudi’s love of nature. Tour guide was excellent and explained the exteriors also. Then the guide explained the many interesting things in the museum. Highly recommended!

Marc was very knowledgeable about the Sagrada Familia but the continuity of the tour was disrupted because he had to split his time between English and Italian.
• Submitted 28 Oct 2019
Our guide was excellent. Tour was very well organized, and everything was right on time. It's worth visiting this unique world heritage Basilica with a guide who knows the history, there's so much to miss if you're a foreign tourist new to Barcelona. Tour size was just right, not too big.

The tour guide for Julia Travel (Grayline) was good, she took time to explain everything to our group, the queue to get in for our group took longer than expected so she stayed longer with our group so we would get the full benefit of what we paid for. Her English was good, and she had good knowledge about Sagrada Familia.
