A 1.5-hour tour, priority entry, and choice of departure times: this ticks three key boxes for a Sagrada visit.
Select a start time to suit your schedule and then greet your guide in a centrally-located meeting point in Barcelona. Glide past long lines of tourists at the entrance hall of La Sagrada Familia and avoid a wait of often up to two hours. Embark on your tour of the architectural masterpiece and hear intriguing anecdotes surrounding the construction of the famously unfinished cathedral.  

Gaze at the distinctive features of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed cathedral as you explore every crevice with your guide. Walk beneath vaults suspended 230 feet (70 meters) above ground and appreciate the opulent ornamentation of the interior. 

After sufficient admiration, visit La Sagrada Familia Museum to see plaster models, drawings and pictures that articulate the development of the cathedral since the 19th century. Discover the cathedral’s projected completion date and bid farewell to your guide in the museum. Feel free to continue browsing at your own pace after parting ways with your guide.

Tour was ok. The guide is very knowledgeable, but our “English” tour was English and Spanish. The guide spent half the time in each language, with too much time just standing around. We paid for an English tour and would have rated the tour higher if we got what we paid for, an English speaking tour.

We usually don't do tours but decided to for this location. Our guide was very informative and pointed out interesting articles in the church. We definitely learned a lot about the history and design that we would not have known if we had gone on our own.

It was raining so hard that we all got our shoes wet just by crossing the street from the tour meeting pint to the Basílica. But that did t stoped our guide. He showed us the inside of the church and event went outside when possible. Very professional and kind!

This was my first tour after arriving in Spain. It was an excellent way to start my trip.

We never made it to the tour as there was torrential rain in the city and traffic was chaotic (couldn't get a taxi). We called and requested to change the tour to the following day but were told it wasn't possible. It was unfortunate as we had paid for the tour for our family of 5 and never got to experience the inside of Sagrada Familia!

Our tour guide was very informative and entertaining. Tour was just long enough .... approx. 1.5 hours and we had the option to stay inside and do more sight-seeing on our own. Skip-a-line was definitely the way to go as the regular lines to get in were crazy long, and we were not even in peak season! We were queued up in a special line and got in within 10 minutes.

My jaw dropped the moment I set foot inside the magnificent doors. Our guide had an excellant command of English and gave us a really good commentry from the outside. Nothing prepares you for the experience of being inside the Basilica, it will be amazing w hen it is finished in 2026, can't wait to come back to see it. Will definitely book through viator. My first experience with them was a good one.

Priority was the only way to go. We checked in at the ticket office across the street from the church at the assigned time. We proceeded immediately with our guide to the entrance of the Sagrada Familia and began our tour. The tour was very comprehensive discussing the outside design of the church, then proceeding into the church and an extensive tour of the interior. After viewing the church during a subsequent trip, we finally dot to view the interior along with some very detailed descriptions. NOTE: The Hop on Hop Off Bus leaves you very close to Sagrada Familia.

The Sagrada Familia was absolutely breathtaking, particularly the exterior. However, the tour was less so. Firstly we didn't realise that we had to go to the tour office itself instead of the actual cathedral (luckily we were early). Secondly, the tour was in both English and Spanish which meant that half the time we were just standing around. Our tour guide was very good, however, and I did feel slightly sorry for her.

When we showed up at our meeting point we were advised there was no room for us and no tickets available - never received any advance notice
