What You Can Expect
Meet your guide and walk straight past the long entrance lines, which are often in excess of two hours, to Antoni Gaudi’s Gothic masterpiece: La Sagrada Familia. After skipping the line, set off to explore Barcelona’s attention-grabbing church on a walking tour.
Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, La Sagrada Familia is consecrated and was proclaimed a minor basilica by Pope Benedict XVI. Learn all about its fascinating history from your guide, and hear how Gaudi designed the church’s interior as a Latin cross complete with five aisles. Gaze in admiration at the opulent ornamentation and walk underneath vaults that measure some 230-feet (70-meters) high.
Before leaving the church, visit La Sagrada Familia Museum to see drawings, plaster models and pictures about the development of the church since the late 1880s. La Sagrada Familia remains famously unfinished, and the museum also documents information about the construction that is currently underway. The anticipated completion date of the building is 2026: the centennial of Gaudi’s death.
Artistic Barcelona Tour with Skip-the-Line Entry to Park Güell (3 hours):
Meet your guide outside La Sagrada Familia for your afternoon tour and then wander across to one of Barcelona’s top UNESCO World Heritage sites: Park Güell.
Another Gaudi creation, Park Güell is an extensive garden complex located on the hill of El Carmel. Known for its architectural features with mosaic terraces, walls and eye-catching sculptures, the park attracts lengthy entrance lines. Skip past the wait lines with your fast-track ticket and head inside to explore with your guide.
After visiting Park Güell, stroll down Passeig de Gràcia, the street that’s home to the famous Gaudi creations of Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. Learn how the buildings were designed as lavish private residences, and pose for photos in front of their facades. Your tour then finishes near Casa Batlló.
Skipping the line at La Sagrada Familia and having a knowledgeable guide was definitely worth it! I learned many facts about La Sagrada Familia that I would not have learned if I visited on my own. Taking an air-conditioned bus ride and not having to figure out how to get to Park Guell on a super hot July day was perfect. Having a friendly, knowledgeable guide that spoke multiple languages made it easy for everyone in the small group to understand.
I would rate the La Sagrada Familia tour as 4 star, and the separate Artistic tour as 2 star, which averages out as a 3 star.
It was definitely worth paying extra to skip the queue for La Sagrada Familiar. Here, the tour guide was friendly, informative and I could understand most of his English. A must see in Barcelona, it really was amazing.
Unfortunately I could not understand the tour guide's English very well on the Artistic tour. There were about 40 people on the tour, which made it feel really impersonal, it was like he was herding cattle through the street! Also the park visit was very rushed. There was little time to explore the gardens, and I would have liked longer to get better photos. This tour, I think, would be better done on the tour bus.
I was really unimpressed with the attitude of the tour company. The directions given by Viator to the Travel office were very vague and misleading, for which they accepted no responsibility or apology; so I recommend leaving at least half an hour extra time to find the office so that you don't miss the tour.
