Overview

Immerse yourself in the architecture and creative work of artistic genius Antoni Gaudí on this 3.5-hour afternoon excursion with guide in Barcelona. Take some time to admire the designer's UNESCO World Heritage-listed La Sagrada Familia before heading to Gaudí's iconic Park Güell for a skip-the-line visit. Spend time exploring the park's wealth of mosaic-adorned benches, walls, and sculptures before heading back to the city center to explore the Gaudí-designed residences of Casa Batlló and La Pedrera (Casa Milà).
  • 3.5-hour tour of Barcelona’s famous Gaudi-designed monuments
  • Enjoy close-up views of La Sagrada Familia on a stroll outside the UNESCO-listed cathedral
  • Learn about Gaudi’s life in Barcelona and the many Modernist monuments he created
  • Take a skip-the-line tour of Park Güell, a vast garden complex on the hill of El Carmel
  • Stroll along Passeig de Gràcia for a photo stop by Casa Batlló and La Pedrera
Take an art-lover's tour of Barcelona as you learn the history and inspiration behind the many creations of Catalan master Antoni Gaudí. Whether you're an admirer of architecture or simply looking to gain a better understanding of the life of one of Barcelona's most famous citizens, this tour offers the perfect starting point.

Begin your 3.5-hour tour by meeting your guide in central Barcelona at 3:30pm, and heading to the tour's first stop at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed La Sagrada Familia. Considered by many to be one of Gaudí's finest creations, this towering architectural masterpiece features a visually striking arrangement of skinny spires and detail-rich facades. Listen to details from your guide about the history of this incredible building, which is still under construction more than 130 years after work began. 

Continue to Park Güell, a gorgeous Gaudí-designed park situated in the hills above Barcelona on the hill of El Carmel. This beautiful park, covered head to toe with intricate mosaic-tiled terraces, benches, sculptures, and walls, frequently experiences long lines at its entrance. But thanks to your fast-track ticket included with your tour, you'll leap right past these lines on your way in, spending the extra time you might have been waiting experiencing the striking walkways and leaf-shrouded grounds of this urban oasis.

Leave Park Güell and head next to Passeig de Gràcia back in the city center. This iconic street features a number of Gaudí designs, including two private residences, Casa Batlló and La Pedrera, that have been converted into museums. Visit both homes, taking time to learn from your guide about how the wealthy Batlló and Milà families collaborated with Gaudí on the projects, along with the ensuing scandal that resulted when the homes were finally unveiled to the public. Capture a few photos in front of these two amazing architectural works before leaving your guides near Casa Batlló.

Great tour with an informative and interesting guide. Seeing the dragon/lizard was really the highlight of the tour. We also learned at lot of info about Gaudi, a most remarkable architect.

Very informative tour but wished we would have had more time to admire the view from Park Guell and less time sitting on the bus waiting for the others to join.

Now, I really enjoyed this tour but its is more than just the above attractions and that turned out to be a problem. I was travelling with a 10 year old and thought an overview of the Sagrada Familia and Park Guell would be ideal for us both. However, when we met for the tour, it was called the Artistic tour but alarm bells still didn't ring. We set off on our air conditioned coach and the wonderful and informative guide talked us through the tour. We had to be dropped off and walk to the Sagrada Familia as coaches are not allowed closer. We walked around the outside with the guide telling us all about it and then back to the coach. We then set off for Park Guell where again we had to alight and walk around at this point the 10 year old decided he'd had enough and we had to leave the party and go back to the coach for a break. We spent about 1.5 hours here and then headed back into town where we were dropped off again for another extended period of walking to look at all the Gaudi architecture along with some others!. It was very interesting and what we saw was amazing. However, I do not remember it stating the tour would be 4 hours long, it would involve so much walking and would leave you away from were we started off. Judging by several people on the coach and some who left early neither did they! It was a bit of shame but, if that is what you are expecting, and you're up to it it is a great tour..... Its not really a tour for children - physically he could do it but the attention span just isn't there.

Average you see the sights but can you believe my tour guide said there were no time for pictures...??? What tour guide does this?? He was knowledgeable, you know upfront your not going into the church so don’t expect it.

Average nothing I can say that makes it anything but...

Mark did a great job in describing everything along the way. He was very personable and knowledgeable. The tour was better than we expected and Mark our guide had a lot to do with it. After the tour was over he made sure we all got what we needed to make the remainder of our trip a good one. I would use Viator tours again - they have not let us down yet. A great tour group in multiple cities we have visited.
