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.

At the end of your tour you can stay inside Sagrada Familia and visit the museum. An exhibition of drawings, models and pictures narrate the story of the Basilica.

Sharon_J, Mar 2023
Our tour guide was very knowledgable and interesting. She did a great job translating in Spanish and English. I am so glad we did this tour because so much of the experience and details would have been lost
Disappointing g
Sara_V, Mar 2023
Unfortunately, it took a while to get in even with the fast pass and the guide was difficult to understand, this is a bit of a cattle call tour. The site is easily navigated by a downloaded audio tour on your phone.
Sun coming through stain glass windoes
Tracy_H, Mar 2023
Great time of day to see the sunlight coming through the stain glass windows. Our guide was very knowledgeable but the thebflow of keeping our group together was disjointed. However, not the guides fault. It was hard to "find" your group among all the people.
Great experience
Sorin_T, Mar 2023
It is great to have a guide walking you through the history and some tips of how this magnificant place was and is build. History is different when told while you are walking through.
Glen_B, Mar 2023
Very good tour of the cathedral and guide shared lots of information. Fast track queue still quite long so be prepared.
I recommend this activity!

While the Sagrada Familia is a must see sight, pay attention to the details when you book a tour. We booked the English Bilingual and the guide spoke Spanish then repeated herself in English. Wasted time doing this. Also group was too big for us.
Historic tour with lots of facts
tothginny, Mar 2023
The history of the process of building. It is helpful if the tour guide has some type of flag. Easier to find her
Nice to skip the line, pleasant guide.
Kari_J, Mar 2023
Very nice to skip the line and the crowd! Our guide was very knowledgable and nice, and eager to share with us all the ideas Gaudi has had. Sometimes she was a bit difficult to understand as she spoke very fast, but we understood most of what she wanted to share with us.
Great visit
Yolanda_B, Mar 2023
Everything went as planned, timely and professional, Marc has been an excellent guide the monument is magnificent
Gillian_T, Mar 2023
It is a place worth a visit the guide was very informative, Carolina. The organisation of Julia Travel very good
Not worth the money to go inside
Corinne_K, Mar 2023
It is nicer on the outside than inside. Was not worth the price for the tour and tour guide. Not very impressive inside. The guide was good.
great guide through a complex building
Maryann_D, Mar 2023
There is so much to look at when you go to anything Gaudi, but the Sagrada Familia is the extreme example. Our guide was knowlegeable, informative, fun, interesting and got us through the myriad lines and screenings necessary to see the church. I would highly recommend the trip to anyone who comes to Barcelona - and make sure that they understand that the check-in is not at the church. We did a bit of circumnavigation to find where we needed to be...
Beautiful views and so informative!
Meiling_B, Mar 2023
This was a great way to see the Sagrada Familia! Our guide was very knowledgeable and the pace was comfortable and slow enough to take in all the beautiful views inside. I’d highly recommend a guided tour.

Wow! Excellence tour
Lisa_S, Mar 2023
Sara was a great guide! Headphones were an unexpected surprise and made everything more enjoyable. Hearing the history from the groundbreaking moment to today was amazing.
Skip the Line, Yes... But Also Skip ThisTour
RBrian_C, Mar 2023
While we signed up for an English language tour, the guide was not particularly fluent and really struggled to find the right words on a regular basis. Ir was worth skipping the line, but there was no additional value offered by having a guide. It was rushed and haphazard.
La Sagrada familia
