The tour guide was very knowledgeable! The only thing is that we had a hard time finding the meeting point.
Everyone said don’t miss Gaudi’s masterpiece , even bettter than expected. Marta was a great guide, very personable and patient. She still enjoys her job.
This is a must see. Enjoyed tour guide. Hearing the guide was bit of a problem at times due to the number of other tours and their guides. Wonderful to see and the sights from the towers are great.
We are so glad we took this tour! Sara, our tour guide was knowledgeable, engaging and enthusiastic. It was easy to find our tour group at the meeting place outside the Cathedral, she actually found us! The Sagrada Familia is beyond description with its unique style and truly awesome beauty, Sara really gave us a deeper understanding of its history and the genius of Gaudi. We would definitely recommend this tour and thank you Sara for such a wonderful afternoon and all your knowledge!
Loved this tour, the guide was very knowledgeable and her English perfect. The 400 steps down from the tower was a small challenge
Very good tour. Some interaction and goof knowledge
We really enjoyed this tour of Sagrada Familia - Sara was very kind and gave a great commentary of this incredible building. The interior of the church is very special and the beautiful light and space makes it well worth a visit.
Fabulous Tour...I highly recommend it ! You can walk through it on your own, however you will miss so many things you don't realize are there. The Tour Guide was great and you have earphones while the tour is going on so no matter what language you speak you can understand everything.
The tour of Sagrada Familia was absolutely amazing. The setting, the sunlight, the structure and history of this magnificent space is breathtaking! Our tour guide was wonderful and provided us with informative information and history and local stories as well. We had purchased tickets to the Towers too but, unfortunately the day of our tour was too windy for the Towers to be explored. This was indeed a disappointment but Viatour provided a very timely refund of for the addition of this to our previously purchased ticket which was much appreciated. Definitely pre-purchase tickets as it will save time in a long line. Sagrada Familia is a must see when in Barcelona - you won't be disappointed one bit!!
