The guide was a bit sarcastic. It was definitely his job. Also it took a while for us to get started so I'm not sure if we saved that much time. However, it was great to go with someone to inform us about all the different aspects of the church, which is one of the most remarkable churches I have seen. Gaudi is a master. The guide helped us to purchase an extra ticket (not included with this tour) so that we could go up the elevator to the top. This was worth the extra 6 Euros or something. Overall, I recommend the tour. It just needs to be organised a bit better.
I recommend going to Montserrat. Had a great time going there. Although I got a bit bored with the tour and ended up doing my own thing. The guides were great. However, I am religious so I was after more of the religious experience which the free time permitted for a half day doesn't give you. So I recommend the full day tour instead of the half.
Not a lot involved with this tour. You pretty much get a brief history of the tower and then you're given the skip-the-line tickets which are a treat as you can go right to the top! All in all a nice experience. I would do this again if I returned to Paris as there is the queue is big and the days are hot!
Awesome experience. Definitely worthwhile. I would do this again if I went back.
