Take a knowledgeable guide on a tour of the La Sagrada Familia cathedral and enjoy a Barcelona's most famous landmark in the morning light.

During this tour you'll take in the bounty of Gaudi's genius. The Sagrada Familia is legendary for its striking architecture and art features. Antoni Gaudi, a modernist architect, was completely consumed by it. Construction began in 1882 and has not been completed.

During the tour, your guide will point out the different facades of the nativity and the passion. You will also learn about the Holy Family's representations and symbolism as a stone-built expression of Christian ideology, carved in stone.

As you learn about the history of the church, pay attention to the Christian iconography. The roof is supported by angled pillars that look like a web of tree branches.

The Museu Gaudi is located below the surface. Strolling through its rooms you'll discover some important information about Gaudi's life and work. Besides that, there is a viewing platform above the architect's burial site and a crypt where masses are held.

This was a lovely tour, I would highly recommend going in with a guide as there is so much to see and learn about, our guide Manu was excellent! She had a lot of knowledge to share and kept us engaged in her explanations on what we were looking at. I found the tour informative and interesting. Once the tour is over you can stay on and look around more, the tower was an awesome experience- absolutely breath taking views from the top, the stairs on the way down are a very steep and narrow spira...

Book in advance in a must. We arrived to meet our guide, there was confusion of how many people were booked with Amigos tours and the guide asked if 2 people in the group would wait until the later session 2 hours later at 5.30pm. None of us volunteered and the office was contacted and asked to speak with named people in the group. Eventually 45 minutes later we was all allowed in. Sagrada Familia inside is absolutely amazing, spectacular and stunning. we had audio guide inside and it felt a ...

We were guided by Manou. And she was a great guide! Telling us in English about the Sagrada Familia in a very interesting way. One thing was hard to miss, is that many of the people sitting in front of the altar were sitting in a very innaprpriate way. It was written that it's a place of prayer. But many sitting with crossed legs, and guys one leg above the other, relaxing. I think guides can also help in this matter if they mention this and stress on appropriate behavior just as they asked t...

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 ...

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.

Our guide Manu was wondeful!! Despite the crazy unfortunate weather that was happening and that we weren't able to up to the tower she was super informative and we learned so much from her. Because of the weather our original group was supposed to be 23 and it ended up just being 4 of us. and she made everything personal and was just wonderful! thanks Manu!!

Clara was an excellent tour guide making our experience at Sagrada Familia much more enjoyable. Having a personal tour guide versus just having the audio guide gave context and interaction with the ability to ask questions enhanced the visit. Highly recommend this tour experience. Thanks Clara!

Tour guide (Clara) met us promptly and was very informative at every step of the tour. She knew the history of the Sagrada Familia and so much of the back story. We walked through the interior, stopping at several important points where we were given background and highlights that enhanced our appreciation of the basilica. We ended the tour by taking the elevator up the tower and walking down the 400+ steps, enjoying great views on the way.

Guide was awesome and very knowledgeable! I cannot imagine visiting the cathedral without a guide now as he offered a lot of insight. It was easy to hear because we had headphones too. We were not allowed tower access unfortunately but the guide made up for it by extending our tour. This cathedral is unlike anything you'll ever see. It's a must visit!!

Tour guide was brilliant. The tour started 30 minutes late though due to security checks which was quite frustrating with the waiting. Hey nice we were in though it was smooth sailing. Very short tour for the price and we purchased this ticket for the tower tour however it was closed.
