Fantastic piece of architecture! Information about the designer, the building, the history, the wars and the progress going forward is superb.
You have to see it...inside and out... to believe it. Gaudi was beyond the spectrum.....
This was an excellent choice for us. The guide was knowledgable at succinct. While it was sometimes hard to hear due to crowd noise he did a nice job. And I can't recommend the tower experience highly enough! It was awesome and skipping the line is always a good idea.
The only negative to it was the lack of knowing that, while the ride up the tower is on an elevator, one MUST CLIMB DOWN THE STAIRS.
And there were a lot of them. While it was not a problem for us, it would be to anyone unable, for whatever reason, to do that downward climb.
If you are in Barcelona, this is a must do. Highly recommended!
Words can't explain the beauty and history behind the Sagrada Familia. Our guide gave us so much information and it was amazing to learn the stories behind the meaning of each aspect of the church. I would do this all over again!
La Sagrada Familia is amazing! We met our guide at Julia Travel and after a short walk we passed the long line-up at the entrance. Our guide was very knowledgeable and she thoroughly explained all the sculptures on the facades that I am sure we would have missed had we toured on our own. Antonio Gaudi was truly a genius as the attention to detail he has shown throughout the church shows. The life-like sculptures, columns made to look like trees, the colours of the stained glass, the natural light, the alter - truly amazing. Our tour included the tower where the views of Barcelona are wonderful. I would highly recommend this tour.
The tour was wonderful, and our guide outstanding. However, the tower was closed due to weather.
This was a great tour! There is so much interesting history behind this church and so many things to notice that get pointed out on the tour. We usually tour churches ourselves but I was glad to have a guide on this one. Now one of my favorite churches...and we've seen a lot of cathedrals over the years! Tower was OK but the church tour was much better!
Highly recommend that you visit Sagrada Familia with this tour. Priority Access cuts out a lot of wait time and the tour guide knows their stuff.
There is no way to describe how cool this structure it but it is a must see when in Barca!

Work is progressing very quickly now after a leisurely start and every visit reveals something new. It's a magical place, the use of light is spellbinding, it's a building like no other. It's certainly worth booking a guided tour - each guide knows something different and draws attention to something I'd never seen before. The views from the tower are spectacular and it was interesting to see some of the sculptures from quite close up.
A fascinating tour with an excellent and very knowledgeable guide!
Great tour. I missed the name of our tour guide, but she was very sweet and knowledgeable. It was great getting background information on the Sagrada Familia. If we ever make it back, I'd like to do an evening tour to see it lit up at night. This is a must see.
Everything everyone raves about is true. The history, architecture and the structure of the basilica left me in awe. It is totally magnificent and well worth going to see, We went late in the day when the light through the western stained glass windows was quite mystical. The play of colours through the natural sunlight inside the cathedral is simply beautiful. Our guide was very informative, and really friendly. The tower trip is amazing with fantastic views BUT after the lift up it is a walk down 350 steps. The narrow spiral staircase maybe not for people with a fear of heights as it is quite disorientating.
Having said that, the Sagrada is amazing and this tour is worth every penny.
Highly recommended. Once we found the office to get the ticket all went very smoothly. Allow enough time to get across the park to the ticket office to meet our group. We really enjoyed this tour!
The history, architecture and the structure of the church left me in awe. The play of colors through the natural sunlight inside the cathedral is awesome. Really incomparable! Must see its completion in 2026!
Excellent. Our guide, Mark, gave a very good and informative tour. He was pleasant and spoke good English.
Our guide was very informative, and really friendly. The sagrada familia is fantastic and well worth going to see.
Probably the most beautiful cathedral I've ever seen in Europe. Highly recommended. I couldn't do the tower section do to foot problems and lots of stairs. But just doing this tour was brilliant
Excellent tour. We actually liked the inside better than the outside and our guide, Mark, was very good.
The guide was very informative and the views from the tower were wonderful. The tour was very well organized.
