We can definitely recommend this tour. The guide David was very good to follow and also had a lot of inside knowledge about the Sagrada Familia. He first showed us around the church and at 4pm (the tour started at 2:15) he dropped us off at the tower lift to go up. From there on you are on your own and can take as much time as you want to explore the church.

The group was 30 people which was way too many for our guide (Lupe) to manage and as a consequence the experience was affected by too many calls to keep the group together and manoeuvre us all around the Sagrada Famiglia. The group should be no larger than 12-15 people maximum.

Overall an amazing experience! Skip the line tickets were the best idea, the guide was very knowledgeable and efficient. I recommend getting there with time to spare, as the area is very crowded and it took some time to pinpoint the meeting place (even with Google Maps) and there are very many groups meeting there.

Our guide Rosa was excellent. Six years ago I toured La Sagrada Familia and this tour was more interesting and informative then the tour we did 6 years ago. Rosa was wonderful. We learned so much. I loved the tower portion as well. You take an elevator up and walk down. It was so fantastic getting up close to the decor of the Basilica on a tower and being able to watch some of the construction too. Rosa was excellent. I’m so glad I toured La Sagrada Familia again.

Tour was very interesting, our guide Guadalupo is experienced and entertaining. Highly recommend visit time during sunny day esp in late afternoon to witness the glorious natural lights inside. Unfortunately we could not visit the tower and was only told just before starting tour and that some refund would be given.

Rosa met us outside the Sagrada familia and the group was 30 people. She managed a large group like this with ease and managed to make it feel very personalized and intimate. It was clear that she performs the tour with passion and love for the subject matter

My wife and I are really glad we took the La Sagrada Familia skip the line guided tour. Our guide, David, was fantastic. He provided so much information that we could have never got on our own. He even provided great tips as to where to take photos. We highly recommend the tour and hope any who take the tour are lucky enough to have David as your guide

The information on the tour was good. It was stressful finding the tour guide because there is no “kiosk”. The guide shows up at designated time & general area. You just have to chill until the time then look fervently because there are a lot of tours.

Guide was organised and on time. He explained how the tour would be organised clearly at the beginning. He was very knowledgeable on all aspects of the Família pointing out lots of details . Going up the tower was fabulous. The views from the top were unbelievable. Being able to explore on our own after the tower was a bonus. Also seeing the Família after dark with the stained glass windows showing their colours was great.

The kayak tour was great! I was with my two teenage granddaughters and the guide was very nice in watching out for us. The weather kicked up and we were being pushed away from shore. Irwin (?) came and towed us in. I thought I would end up in Africa! Then we missed the next tour and Audrey, his assistant, helped us with the arrangements. Very nice people!
