Be the first to step inside La Sagrada Familia just before the crowds arrive on this morning tour in Barcelona. This tour allows you inside the unfinished church before it is open to the general public. Learn from your guide about the famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí.

Afterwards, take a walk through nearby Parca de Gaudi if you wish.
  • Early access gets you unobstructed views of the exterior and interior
  • Learn about the cathedral's history with commentary from your guide
  • After the tour, you can stay and admire the cathedral and grounds as long as you want

Learn about the reason for the church's unfinished state; construction begun in 1882 and was only a quarter complete when it halted in 1926. 

Opt to upgrade your experience with exclusive access to the Tower on the Passion façade, where you will have a panoramic views of the city from a height of 215 feet (65 meters). Please note that access to the tower requires a climb of roughly 400 steps.

Tower terror

You sold and are still selling early acces with tower entrance . But due to COVID it is not possible to visit the tower. So if I had known that I would have bought a single ticket instead of the expensive one you tricked me in

Dear Amig@ Thank you for your comments. We would have loved to know your name to be able to give you a better answer, since we cannot know which product you purchased, what we can tell you is that our products are divided and some include the towers and others do not. Please, if at any time we have failed to match what we offered you with what you purchased, you can contact your agency, who will initiate an investigation to find out what happened and will give you an answer in a very short time. We are sorry you were not able to have the fabulous experience we planned for you. Dulce, Amigo Tours

They cancelled the tour with 2 days to go. The tour was scheduled for a Monday. The Sagrada Familia is closed on Mondays. How could they schedule a tour when the attraction is closed?

Dear Amig@ Thank you very much for your comments. We are very sorry for what happened, due to the present pandemic we have experienced unforeseen circumstances. However, we assure you that we have improved and we invite you to come back so you can check it out. Dulce, Amigo Tours

Great Experience

My family and I really enjoyed this tour. Sara did a great job with the dual language group and I felt she was very knowledgeable about Gaudi and the Sagrada Familia. It is a short tour but perfect for our family. We purchased the tower access and enjoyed that as well. Hint: if you want to tip your guide, do it before you get to the tower access. I was too slow and missed being able to show my gratitude. Sorry Sara.

Sagrada Familia Is a can’t miss stop and Having a guide was very helpful with so many nuances. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Our meeting place was a small kiosk that did not open until 15 minutes before the tour and it was raining that day so it would have been nice to know ahead of time.

Not as good as I had hoped
Magoo
, Feb 2020
The tour had about 20 people in it and it was a bilingual tour - the guide would give the presentation in Spanish then English. I thought the group size was pretty large considering the price we paid. Also, the tour guide used a microphone and then each person had their own headset. The headphones were terrible! Mine kept cutting out and my husband's did not work at all. If you can hear the presentation, it is pretty good but if you are further away from the guide, make sure you have good earphones.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2020
Dear customer many thanks for your comments We regret this tour did not fit your expectations. In this case, the specifications of this tour being bilingual were sent to you before the tour. According to the headphones, we will notify to Sagrada Familia as they are in charge of this and this is out of our hands. We will keep working to improve and give always the best experience to our Amigos. Kind regards

I wanted to like the tour although I somewhat felt it was unnecessary. Sagrada Familia is beautiful and an incredible basilica, although the tour didn't add much that couldn't have been received from getting the normal audio tour.
