Very informative
, Nov 2021
Guide was very knowledgeable Was inspired to go and see more of Gaudi’s work Guide was a little difficult to hear
Must see this site with Viator as a guide!
, Nov 2021
it is not as old as I thought. It is beyond gorgeous. The guide was extremely knowledgeable. Unfortunately, due to COVID, you are limited to the first floor but the experience is still rich. Don't Miss it!
No notice of Marathon closing all access
, Nov 2021
We have booked a couple of dozen tours with Viator, and until this one, always a great experience. This tour was booked several weeks ago using a subcontractor Julia Travel. Little did we know, morning of the tour the Barcelona Marathon was being held! We left our hotel via taxi 45 minutes early for the 3 km trip to Sagrada Familia. An hour later, still in the taxi, we were farther from our destination than when we started! Julia refused refund of our $132 for lack of 24 hour notice. I would think it falls upon the tour operator to notify clients of local events that may preclude their enjoyment of the advertised tour. I am very disappointed in Viator and Julia Travel.
Great tour
, Nov 2021

Great guide Claire from Julia Travel. Knowledgeable Friendly Warm. The booking form needs to be clear about meeting point. Was not obvious on initial confirmation.

A lifetime must-see!
, Nov 2021
Guide Marc was exceptional. Courteous, knowledgeable and fluent English. Sagrada Familia should be on everyone’s bucket list. It’s more like a living thing than a building.
Great experience

The symbolism in Sagrada Familia, an amazing experience to see. Thanks to Marc for all his knowledge . We will definitely be back to see the finished product whenever that may be
, Nov 2021

Where are you?

Never expected the meeting spot to be 10 minutes away from Sangrada Familia, missed the tour. The taxi dropped us off at the front. We have used Viatour many times.
