CASA BATLLÓ, 08007 Barcelona, Spain
Take an art-lover's tour of Barcelona as you learn the history and inspiration behind the many creations of Catalan master Antoni Gaudí. Whether you're an admirer of architecture or simply looking to gain a better understanding of the life of one of Barcelona's most famous citizens, this tour offers the perfect starting point.

Meet your guide in central Barcelona and head to the tour's first stop at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed La Sagrada Familia. Considered by many to be one of Gaudí's finest creations, this towering architectural masterpiece features a visually striking arrangement of skinny spires and detail-rich facades. Listen to details from your guide about the history of this incredible building, which is still under construction more than 130 years after work began. 

Continue to Park Güell, a gorgeous Gaudí-designed park situated in the hills above Barcelona on the hill of El Carmel. This beautiful park, covered head to toe with intricate mosaic-tiled terraces, benches, sculptures, and walls, frequently experiences long lines at its entrance. But thanks to your fast-track ticket included with your tour, leap right past these lines on your way in, spending the extra time you might have been waiting experiencing the striking walkways and leaf-shrouded grounds of this urban oasis.

Leave Park Güell and head next to Passeig de Gràcia back in the city center. This iconic street features a number of Gaudí designs, including two private residences, Casa Batlló and La Pedrera, that have been converted into museums. See both homes from the outside and learn how the wealthy Batlló and Milà families collaborated with Gaudí on the projects, along with the ensuing scandal that resulted when the homes were finally unveiled to the public. Capture a few photos in front of these two amazing architectural works before leaving your guide near Casa Batlló.

Do not accept bilingual tours.

The complaint about bilingual tours is valid. I booked this for my parents and although it was a small group, it was in English and Spanish. The tour was essentially in Spanish with a few words in English. Make sure to book a. English only tour.

Misleading - no entry into Sagrada Familia

Booked by phone specifically to go to Sagrada Familia because we didn’t want to stand in line to tickets. At the time of tour was told it was for the outside only and no entry into cathedral. So wasted an opportunity to book any other place because it was too late in the day. We were leaving the next morning, so didn’t get to see it at all. Very disappointed. However we were refunded our money but that doesn’t make up for not being able to go. Should have been specific that it was for the outside only.

It started off okay and the tour guide was fine at the beginning but she ended up leaving so many people behind and would not count and make sure everyone was present. We were left behind at Parc Guell and when my family and I found her at our next stop we realized that 4/19 were with her. It was terrible don’t do it.

our guided tour was canceled three days before we were supposed to go because the tour guide was injured sorry for his injury but VIATOR should have been able to have gotten us on another tour. We had to scramble once we were in Barcelona to get a tour of El Sagrada Familia Very disappointed by their lack of help when they caused the problem The attraction once we got there was great no thanks to Viator

So so

Not the greatest tour in my opinion, mostly because this tour did not include going into any of the buildings. No entrance to La Sagrada, or any of the Gaudí houses. While La Segrada is impressive from the outside the others were not that interesting. We were originally scheduled on another Viator tour that included the inside of La Segrada, a tour we booked months ago. A day before arriving in Spain we were notified that the tour was cancelled. And at that point all the inside tours at la Segrada were sold out. That was a huge disappointment as we had planned well in advance. We have booked a lot of tours with Viator and this was by far the worst experience. I lost a lot of trust in the system as you plan for trips way in advance so you can see what you want to see while traveling. Imagine if you booked a tour of the Vatican and then were told a day before that it is cancelled. Then you find yourself if Rome and don’t get to see the Vatican. Viator should have done a better job vetting their vendors. We didn’t want our money back we wanted an inside tour of la Segrada. Viator did nothing to help us rebook or find an alternative. This was not very professional and a disappointing way to start our vacation

Disappointing tour
Jet36197030045

The guide barely spoke English and as the tour was on both Spanish and English, it was impossible to catch up and understand. Also, he spoke very softly and we hardly could hear him at all. It seems he was more interested in showing us good pictures spots rather than talk about history and the sites itself.
