Make your way to La Sagrada Familia, one of Barcelona's best-known landmarks, to meet your guide and tour group. Get there before the popular site is open to the general public. Avoid long lines and be one of the first groups allowed inside.

Before entry, marvel at the ornate exterior of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, featuring sharp, soaring spires and incredible architectural detail.

Follow your guide inside for a tour of Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí's masterwork. Look up for dizzying views of 230-foot (70-meter) vaults, colorful stained glass windows and soaring ceilings. Walk down the five aisles in the shape of a Latin cross while listening to your guide's commentary about Gaudí's architectural philosophy and inspiration. Learn about the reason for the church's unfinished state; construction begun in 1882 and was only a quarter complete when it halted in 1926. 

Opt to upgrade your experience with exclusive access to the Tower on the Passion façade, where you will have a panoramic views of the city from a height of 215 feet (65 meters). Please note that access to the tower requires a climb of roughly 400 steps.

Great Experience
Tim
, Mar 2020
My family and I really enjoyed this tour. Sara did a great job with the dual language group and I felt she was very knowledgeable about Gaudi and the Sagrada Familia. It is a short tour but perfect for our family. We purchased the tower access and enjoyed that as well. Hint: if you want to tip your guide, do it before you get to the tower access. I was too slow and missed being able to show my gratitude. Sorry Sara.

Sagrada Familia Is a can’t miss stop and Having a guide was very helpful with so many nuances. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Our meeting place was a small kiosk that did not open until 15 minutes before the tour and it was raining that day so it would have been nice to know ahead of time.

Not as good as I had hoped

The tour had about 20 people in it and it was a bilingual tour - the guide would give the presentation in Spanish then English. I thought the group size was pretty large considering the price we paid. Also, the tour guide used a microphone and then each person had their own headset. The headphones were terrible! Mine kept cutting out and my husband's did not work at all. If you can hear the presentation, it is pretty good but if you are further away from the guide, make sure you have good earphones.

Dear customer many thanks for your comments We regret this tour did not fit your expectations. In this case, the specifications of this tour being bilingual were sent to you before the tour. According to the headphones, we will notify to Sagrada Familia as they are in charge of this and this is out of our hands. We will keep working to improve and give always the best experience to our Amigos. Kind regards

Not worth it

I wanted to like the tour although I somewhat felt it was unnecessary. Sagrada Familia is beautiful and an incredible basilica, although the tour didn't add much that couldn't have been received from getting the normal audio tour.

Our guide Sarah was amazing from start to finish! she was very well versed with the history and details of the Segrada Familia and that really made our experience of the place a good one. We also booked the ticket with the tower access and overall it was very worth it. will definitely want to go back and visit when the church is completed!! wishful thinking haha
