My husband thought this was one of the coolest things we saw on our 2 week visit to Rome, stops in Italy, France and Spain. Not to be missed!! Our guide was so passionate and knowledgeable about the architect and the history of the church that she made the visit even more interesting. Would have been a little helpful to have a better description to where the meeting point was located since it's across the park on the backside of the Sagrada.
5 stars is not enough to convey the beauty of the interior of this other worldly church so I won't review the church but rather the tour itself. Our guide was delightful. She clearly loved Gaudi -- she helped us all understand the man. She taught us how to read the building. She showed the not only the religious themes that one would expect to find but also showed how this church embraces to the Catalonian culture. She also pointed out how the artists who have continued Gaudi's work have paid homage to him in the design of the decor. She also was sensitive to the needs of the group -- unlike some guides who talk fast and walk faster, she waited for slower members to catch up before starting in on her talks.
The system worked quite well though I had not fully appreciated the need to visit the travel agency in Barcelona to pick up tickets and the guide prior to the tour.
Great tour. Amazing and best because we did not have to stand in line. Guide very well informed
The tour was excellent. Our guide spoke good English, and was knowledgeable regarding the history of the building and the architect who designed it. Standing in front of the building, you are overwhelmed by its detail and size. Enjoy your time there.
Excellent tour and very informative guide. Well worth booking a tour of this amazing building
an amazing venue, really overwhelming. the tour helped us put it into perspective...
guide knowledgeable, good english, answered questions thoroughly.
One hour was good, never boring.
This is an attraction that is greatly enhanced by joining a tour.
The tour is reasonably quick, the guide was knowledgeable, and we had plenty of time to take pictures. Can't wait to see it finished!
After arriving to the tour site, we were instructed to go to the office of the tour guide so we ran a little late - the tour reception rescheduled us to a later time. We got started a little late when we did go but our tour guide stayed until ALL questions were answered and made no attempt to rush us.
This is the place not to miss in Barcelona. It is very helpful to have a tour to point out the most important features. We were very happy to have included the trip to the top of the tower. It is great view of the city. The outside of the building has incredible details and the inside bright and cheerful unlike most European churches and cathedrals. The stained glass windows are phenomenal! Our tour guide spoke very good English and was very informative.
This is the only way to see the Sagrada by beating the lines and having a guide to explain the church, its history etc. Was worth the price and the time saved.
It's not worth doing it on your own. I wish I could remember our guide's name. She was the best! She was able to answer all my questions and showed us things I'm sure that I would have missed. Thanks.
Great tour and the guide was very knowledgeable. His English was somewhat hard to understand.
Excellent tour guide - knowledgeable and personable. Well paced. I would use this group again and recommend it to anyone!
Your tour guide was a wealth of knowledge. A very worthwhile excursion.
By the way our Rome trip was a complete disaster due to being late away from your central departure point and the Zuiderdam changing their all aboard time from 4pm to 2.30pm
Excellent tour. The skip the line experience is a must, especially if you are traveling when the weather is very hot.
Definitely worth it. Our guide was very good and very well informed. We all six of us enjoyed it and would recommend it.
Our tour guide was well informed. The Sagrada Family is beautiful. I hope to live long enough to see it completed. We were very pleased with the tour.
