Full description
Take a guided tour of La Sagrada Familia cathedral with an expert guide, and marvel at Barcelona’s most iconic landmark in the soft light of the morning. On this tour you’ll admire the artwork of Gaudi. Striking for its architectural features and art, the Sagrada Familia is legendary. It was the all-consuming obsession of the modernist architect, Antoni Gaudi. His work on the building began in 1882 and remains unfinished. During the tour your guide will point out the contrasting nativity and passion façades. You’ll also learn about the symbolism and representations of the Holy Family as an expression of Christian ideology, constructed in stone. Note the Christian iconography as you hear about the history of the church. See the angled pillars sprouting like a web of tree branches, holding up the roof. Below the ground is the Museu Gaudi, where you’ll find documentation about Gaudi’s life and work. There is also a crypt where masses are held, and a viewing platform above the burial site of the architect.

The private tour, with our guide Sara, was so worth the extra price for my husband and me. Sara, our guide, took the time to explain things and answered any questions we had, no matter how silly or stupid they sounded. She gave us the time to take lots of photos and even showed us a few tricks about getting the best shot. Going as a private tour made it much easier to get around and hear everything that Sara was telling us. The only negative was we did not get to do the tower tour, due to no time slots available, but I contacted the company and they refunded the difference. Spend the extra money and book a private tour. You won't be disappointed If you are lucky, you will have Sara as your guide.

The meeting point was clear and the waiting Guides friendly and approachable. We were given lots of information about La Sagrada Familia in an informal and interesting way. Once in La Sagrada Familia the Guide gave us plenty of time to marvel whilst still guiding us and telling us stories of the various points within the basilica.

Confusion. Not sure what the issues were but first the start time got changed. Later, old start time was confirmed. I showed up at the original earlier start time just in case. No guide showed up until about 10 minutes past later start time. A guide told us that our tour guide wasn't going to show up but we had been joined with their tour so now we were about 20 people. The guide was excellent but the sound quality on the provided "whispers" was not good. Next time I would probably opt for a private tour.
