A premier experience of Sagrada Familia

This tour was great. Our guide knew so much about Gaudi and the construction of the site. The tour got us into the site quick and offered tower access. It was a great purchase and I highly recommend!

The chapel was incredible!! Our guide did not speak English very well so we didn’t understand most of the words she was saying she had too strong of an accent!

Outside, inside and up the tower--Sagrada Familia is a must do tour!

Irina Sytcheva was our tour guide for the Sagrada Familia. Julia Tours ran an efficient online booking and check-in process, and we enjoyed the air conditioning in their office lobby while we waited for our tour to begin. Irina moved our group from spot to spot, stopping to give us the best view points and filling us with the history of the Sagrada. You really can't appreciate this structure until you get inside! Tower viewpoints are a must, with views over Barcelona to the Mediterranean. Great tour!

The guide was so knowledgeable! It was great to learn all the background on the church while seeing its beauty. The tower entry was great too! But make sure you aren’t afraid to distend 500 steps in a spiral staircase to get down.

Sagrada Familia

Sagrada Familia would be overwhelming to do without a guide. Picking up the tickets and connecting with the guide was a simple process. We appreciated having someone point out specific things on the facades and within the church. This place was amazing. We especially liked being able to go up the tower. Would highly recommend seeing this with a guide!

Awesome both inside and outside
HelenFleischer

Tour was perfect. Guide did a wonderful job. No line, not too crowded first thing in the morning. Plenty of time to see inside and outside with good descriptions for both. Very informative. So glad we did the optional tower tour. Lots of narrow winding stairs but so worth it for the awesome views. Not to be missed!

Informative tour
Michele_P
, Jul 2022
We loved our tour of the Sagrada Familia. Irina was very informative. We learned a lot about the architecture and history of the building. The tower was very cool and worth going up if you are not very claustrophobic. The directions on the Viator email were a little confusing about the meeting point. It is in a travel office across the street of the church. But our instructions said to meet outside the entrance. The security officers were kind enough to direct us.

Done use a guide
David_H

We requested an English speaking guide however, they were very difficult to understand. The guide did not go into detail about the history of the church and only touch on a small part. For example we stood outside and in the main section of the church. They then put the microphone low down which then had a lot of background interference. We could have just googled a video and listened to that with head phones. There was a lot of waiting about and the tour took 2hours with around 15mins of guide time. We waited for half an hour for the guide and another 20mins outside waiting on the street to go in. This was definitely not worth the money.

La sagrada familia was beautiful Definitely recommend touring and doing tower Would skip Paying for actual live tour guide - I could not hear half the things he said because of interference with wind and audio Group size was extremely large and even trying to take headphones out to hear him normally was difficult because of group size Was disappointing to not hear the history I would try individual audio without live guide

Priority entry and tower entry were the highlights. The headset audio from the guide was very poor. Everyone on the tour said they had difficulty hearing the guide and heard perhaps only half the the things that were said.

The stories of the church and artists that have been commissioned to work on it are fascinating. Our guide Raul was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun. The interior is elaborate, ornate and simply gorgeous. If you go, get the tower tour as well. Great views from above the city.
