Kathleen_O, May 2022
We took the tour on 5/23. As requested we arrived 15 minutes early @9:45. At 10:00 the guide told us that there were 6 people that had not arrived and we would wait a few minutes for them so we departed the office late. The tour is listed as 1 1/2 hours, at 11:00 the guide said that our tour was over.

The tour guide was extremely kind and informative. Pointed out things we would never have noticed and gave us a deep dive into the history of the cathedral. Would absolutely recommend to anyone interested in seeing this architectural marvel!
A must see with a guide.
Laurie_M, May 2022
Sagrada Familia really is such an amazing creation, work of art, unique and beautiful. The history is so rich and there are so many details to learn about, a guide is worth the price. World’s longest work-in-progress I’m sure.

Worth it to avoid the line
Larry_T, May 2022
The building itself is everything you’ve heard it - stunning, dramatic and unfinished. We arrived a few minutes late, and our delightful tour guide graciously accommodated us. The tour itself focuses mostly on the religious aspects, which isn’t really my cup of tea. I would have liked to learn more about the history, the design, the architect, etc. Also: rookie mistake to go midday. We ended up outside in the blistering heat for the last 15 minutes.
Our guide was...
Patrick_C, May 2022
Our guide was knowledgeable and explained the history plus all the parts of the Sagrada very well. An amazing building story to see.
poor sagrida tour
brian_h, May 2022
We arrived 28 mins late I:E 11 28 due to a delay on the train from sitges was then told by a very rude young lady on the counter of julias tours that we have to pay an extra 29 euros each to cover a re booking fee that included her making a note on a bit of paper in front of her we were not offered a receipt. The tour it self was OK apart from being in spanish and english which made the tour very tedious and boring
Response from Host, May 2022
Dear brian_h, I regret to learn you couldn´t join the original tour from your booking by not arriving to the meeting point nefore the tour started. Please note the tour description indicates customers are requested to arrive 15 mins before the tour since the tickets for the guided group have a time assigned: "Please, be at the meeting point 15 minutes before departure time" The description also indicates: Failure to show up at the established check-in time may entail losing the tour. Our staff offered the re-booking by paying for the purchase of new tickets, since they are nonrefundable. Payment receipts are available by customer´s request. I am glad you did enjoy the re-booked tour, Best regards,

Impressive but tiresome !
CHRISTOS_G, May 2022
Too many people, chaos. A lot of waiting/wasted time. Guided tour was poor, too much time outside the building. We will not go back under those conditions.
Response from Host, May 2022
Dear CHRISTOS_G I regret to learn you didn´t enjoy the Sagrada Familia Guided tour, The tour begins whit the outside of the Basilica. Kindly take note even though the tickets are purchased in advance.; Sagrada Familia´s special conditions for groups entrance indicate that every official guide must be accredited to enter, please bear in mind these proceedings can not be skipped or rushed. Best regards

Skip lines at Sagrada Familia
Kim_P, May 2022
Bought a tour for 10 AM. Great to skip the lines and crowds that increased during the day. Jon was a knowledgeable and interesting guide.
Don’t bother and save yourself the stress.
Kay_M, May 2022
Never got to take the tour that I purchased tickets for since it was impossible to find the meeting point or locate the tour operator.
Response from Host, May 2022
Dear Kay_M, I regret to learn you were not able to join our tour because of not being at the meeting point when the tour started. Please note the voucher indicates the exact location of the office where you meet with the guide. Best regards
Great tour at the Gaudi Church!!
Boudewijn_L, May 2022
The tour started on time, was very informative, and very organized. Having a guide was certainly the way to go. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the Gaudi Church and all the important points of interest of the Gaudi Church.
