It was great to skip the line! I booked an early tour at 9:00 AM and there was already a queue forming. Our guide was able to give us the greater context of the Sagrada Familia and explain the little details that I think we wouldn't have been able to grasp on our own. Only thing was it felt a bit short.

We had a very small group of 3 plus our guide Nada. Nada shared her fabulous wealth of knowledge & had a great sense of humour. We did not feel rushed with our tour & were able to spend free time exploring the museum on conclusion of the tour. Highly recommend this tour.

Once we found our group, which was difficult, the rest of the tour was very impressive. Our guide, Josef, was very knowledgeable and personable, pointing out details and giving background information in an engaging manner. We went at 4:30 when the light through the windows was spectacular. Josef explained the science and design behind the beautiful effects. The tour moved quickly but never felt rushed.
