Full description

Take a guided tour of Barcelona’s magnificent La Sagrada Familia cathedral and enjoy the city’s most iconic landmark. Striking for its architectural features and art, the history of the Sagrada Familia is legendary. The all-consuming obsession of the Modernisme architect, Antoni Gaudi, work on the building began in 1882 and remains unfinished to this day. During your tour you will see the contrasting Nativity and Passion façades. Your guide will talk about the symbolism and representations of the Holy Family as an expression of Christian ideology constructed in stone. Marvel at its Christian iconography as you learn the history of the church, regardless of your faith. See the angled pillars sprouting like a web of tree branches to hold up the roof. Below ground lies the Museu Gaudi, where documentation about Gaudi’s life and work can be found. There is also a crypt where masses are held, and a viewing platform above the burial site of the architect.

The tour itself, lasting about an hour, was great, and we really liked our tour guide, Marta. She was friendly and knowledgable about La Sagrada Familia. I took away one star for the confusion about the meeting place, which was the 2nd tour of the day that there was an issue with Get Your Guide (the 1st time, they wanted to change the time of that tour, although I had a printed confirmation of it, to times I couldn't make, and refused to refund my payment as I hadn't cancelled 48 hours in advance, although it was them not me who changed the time of the tour)> For this tour, I called when I didn't see the guide (there were other people waiting for this guide too) and was told the guide was in a different place. I explained this was where we were told to meet (in writing) and the representative finally said she would call and have the guide pick us up there. The tour was actually good, once we got started.

The option of going with a guide has always seemed good to me, but the day before I took another tour that included only the outside. I had more information with that first guide than with the one who took us inside. Frankly it was not bad, but it could improve, especially since the tour is in both English and Spanish. That makes the experience slower, and sorry, but the guide's level of English is barely average.

The personal guided tour was fine. Our guide did the tour in both English and Spanish. She did a great job with it considering it is a lot of saying the same thing twice. It was a lot of waiting for the other translation to finish, but at least there was a lot to look at. In hindsight we probably would have opted for the self-guided tour. The only bummer about the day is that the meeting spot provided by GetYourGuide which was supposed to be in the backside of the park across the street from the chapel was wrong. Our GPS told us we were within 3 yards of the spot. Our guide never showed up at that spot. After contacting them, the local guide service did a good job of putting us in touch with the guide who had 25 other guests with her. Unfortunately the meeting spot advertised by GetYourGuide was wrong and caused a scramble that morning. I attempted to contact GetYourGuide, but I think it was a computer I got connected with on Instant message that was less than helpful.
