Good tour at Sagrada Familia
, Jul. 2022
The tower part of the tour was cool. Be prepared for loud bells ringing if you end up being at the top close to the top of the hour. Overall good information and knowledge tour guide!
The attraction was great...

The attraction was great but the staff at the office were quite rude and the tour guide was never t prepared…her guide credentials were expired and we had to wait for her in the mIddle of the tour… you need to be better
Loved it!

Tower was so worth it!
, Jul. 2022
Our guide was excellent. I was here 30 years ago! Amazing to see the changes. Tower was so worth it!
Special experience
, Jul. 2022
Had a great experience. Being led from the travel agents office was so helpful. Lots of visitors and the lanyard listening device made it easy to hear the guide. She pointed out details that enhanced our experience such as the likeness of Gaudi on the Passion Facade.
Must See Site
, Jun. 2022
The Sagrada Familia is amazing and inspiring and our tour guide was excellent but the church is very crowded and the tour feels a bit rushed.
Sagrada familia lacked heart
, Jun. 2022
Wasn’t what we had hoped. Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. Site itself lacked meaning. More touristy than anything. Kids did not enjoy.
, Jun. 2022
the tour guide was really detailed explaining the history of the sagrada. we had plenty of time to take in all the key spots of surroundings. overall an amazing experience :)
Very good
, Jun. 2022
Our tour guide George (I think) was very knowledgeable, nice and funny. We had a good time on this tour.
Look for a different tour company other than Viator!
, Jun. 2022
Wish we could have taken our tour. Had confirmation and paid but when we arrived, was told the tour operator (Jenny Tours) had contacted Viator that our reservation could not be accommodated. Horrible communication with Viator! Still waiting for their response. Jenny Tours wasn’t helpful either in resolving. Now it’s sold out!
Beautiful and impressive,...

Beautiful and impressive, exceeded my expectations. We have enough time to explore and take pictures. Sara was a great guide!
A must see!
, Jun. 2022
We met our tour guide, Sara, near la Sagrada Familia (easy to find). Our guide did a great job keeping everyone together and making sure we all knew what was happening. She clearly explained the history and the smaller artistic details outside and inside the church. She even offered to take photos for us. We opted for the tower tour and enjoyed the views from the bell tower. The spiral staircase leading out was a little daunting for anyone scared of heights.
, Jun. 2022
The tour group was WAY too large and unwieldy. I would say we had at least 30 people in our “small” group. The guide spoke quickly and seemed rushed. All in all it was not worth the high cost.
So glad we went with...
, Jun. 2022
So glad we went with guided tour! Learned so much more than if we’d just walked through! I Recommend this tour!
Awesome learning...
, Jun. 2022
Awesome learning experience; Loved all the history. Towers were cool, just a long line-remember to bring water
Skip the line not worth it
, Jun. 2022
The tour guy was a great guy, lots of details. But we watched the line all go in before we were able to go in. On the way there, the guide stopped to give directions and took up even more time. Our tour that was suppose to start at 4 didn’t start till almost 4:30. The 3 stars was for an amazing tour guide
I Would 100% recommend
, Jun. 2022
Very professional set up, office/shop just at the side, staff helpful. Our Guide Donna was amazing, she showed a real passion as she spoke on the tour. Great stories and packed full of information as we travelled through the cathedral. We loved every minute.
Wow factor
, Jun. 2022
I loved seeing the Segrada Familia. The building was amazing inside and out. On first stepping in there was a definite Wow factor. Our guide, Marta, was brilliant, very informative and interesting. The trip up the tower was an added bonus. Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Barcelona.
