Stop At: Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, Carrer de Mallorca, 401, 08013 Barcelona Spain
With tall spires that seem to defy gravity, countless figures from both the human and natural world, the facades of Gaudí’s most ambitious project impressive and astound millions of visitors per year. Today, it’s the most visited building in Spain. Your English-speaking local guide, an expert in all things Gaudí, will share insider stories and anecdotes throughout your tour, truly bringing this iconic building to life.
Your guide will share tales of Gaudí’s love affair with his final work, how he considered the project his personal holy mission, and the great personal sacrifices he made to ensure its completion. Sadly, he would not live to see it finished. Such was the complexity of the design that despite taking on the project when he was just 31 years old.
With “skip the line” access you will be whisked past the long entrance lines and straight into the heart of the Basilica. You’ll feel as though you have stepped into an alternate universe. Step through a heavy set of doors covered in hand-carved vines and find yourself beneath rows and rows of tree-like pillars that seem to reach up all the way to the heavens. Construction is famously ongoing and not estimated to be completed until 2026, and witnessing the this work-in-progress make us feel like we're part of history in the making.

The tour was worth it. However, our tour guide was a little unorganized. With that being said, seeing the Segrada was well worth going.
Came to Barcelona on a cruise. Had not planned to enter the church but decided the night before that I wanted to after all. Purchased ticket for 2 pm tour online. Had no way to print ticket but took photo on my phone. Arrived at church about 1:25. Entrance was sold out for the rest of the day. I showed my ticket on my phone and asked where I should enter because there was not good instruction provided. They sent me across the street to the travel agency. After a 10-15 minute wait in line, they sent me to another travel agency “in the park, under the lamps” on the other side of the church. I walked the entire park twice, asked a security guard at the church and a vendor in the park and no one knew anything about City Wonders who issued my ticket. At 1:55, I gave up and got back on the Hop On, Hop Off bus which WAS a good purchase through Viator. But this one was a $41 live and learn the hard way.
This tour was advertised as a Fast Entry tour but we had to queue for about half an hour to enter the Church. We were also told to wear appropriate dress i.e. no shorts or bare shoulders. However this was not enforced and the majority of tourists were in shorts or summer dresses, on a very hot day in Barcelona.
Amazing tour. Very knowledgeable guide, Highly recommended!
Our guide was great and the tour only had 8 people including five of us which was great!
