What You Can Expect

Barcelona Super Saver: Skip-the-Line La Sagrada Familia Tour plus Artistic Barcelona Tour

Discover Antoni Gaudi's fine architecture around Barcelona on this Super Saver!

Skip-the-Line La Sagrada Familia Tour (1.5 hours):
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.

Actually, due to some confusion about meeting place, we did not take the whole tour. We did take the tour of La Sagrada Familia which was fantastic. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about Gaudi, his work and the history of La Sagrada Familia. She did a fantastic job explaining the timeline for building the cathedral and how each generation has put their stamp on this church while respecting Gaudi's vision.

My family, especially my son, are hard to impress when it comes to churches. Let's just say I've taken them to a lot of them across Europe and to them, once you've seen one you've seen them all not true but whatever. Both my husband and son were pleasantly surprised at how much they loved the tour and this beautiful structure. I watched them listen to our guide intently through the whole tour and given my son's attention span, that's a big deal.

I would recommend this tour to anyone who has never been to La Sagrada Familia and wants a very thorough, knowledgeable tour.

Excellent tour. We had to meet at the office where the company is located which is not completely specific. We joined our group and tour guide and commenced to the Church which is about one block away.. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable about the church. The second part of our tour we had a different guide and we walked to a bus about 5 minutes away and took it to Guelle parc. Beautiful experience and our guide was also knowable about Gaudi and his many talents. It is a long day and very exhausting but worth it. I would definitely recommend it.

The church is something that should not be missed in Barcelona...If you love it, or are indifferent to the design and concept, you cannot help but be amazed by the place...The light inside...the classic gaudi design and the ideas expressed on the facades make this a wonder.

Sagrada Familia is one of the modern day wonders of the world. The outside is eclipsed by the inside. The guide was very knowledgeable and skipping the line was a smart move. The artistic tour was disappointing as it combined with another (Spanish speakng) tour. It went too long and many left
