Wonderful early morning tour of the cathedral! Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour come alive. We especially liked having the audio guides available.

We chose the skip-the-line English-speaking tour at 9 am and couldn't be more pleased! The guide was so knowledgeable and patient with photographers yet was able to expertly guide our group through the basilica and many other tour groups with such ease that we never felt crowded. He was a professional and one of the best I've ever seen. The site, of course, defies a proper description it is just amazing, breath-taking and not to be missed on a visit to Barcelona.

A very relaxed but thorough tour of the inside and outside of the Sagrada Familia led by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide who took the time to include interesting facts and snippets for my 9-year old daughter who was the only child on the tour. Highly recommended.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

Definitely take this tour as opposed to going it by yourself. The construction and ornateness is amazing and spectacular to view, but there are so many hidden facts about the construction details, engineering aspects, and Gaudi himself that you just could not get by reading the literature or visiting the museum section. Well worth the money!
